Star Trek's nude (well, bodypainted) voyages (NSFW)

A few very brave (and apparently very cold) Star Trek fans must have gotten the wrong idea while watching the episode titled "The Naked Time," because we don't think Kirk and Spock ever needed to strip down to nothing but body paint and sneakers for any of their away missions. (And be forewarned: There's full frontal nudity ahead.)

In any case, after you beam these people down some clothes, please help us find out who they are and what they're doing. The folks over at Dinner in the Darkroom don't explain where this picture came from (though one of the commenters seems to think it was taken in Seattle), so if you know, let us know!

UPDATE: One of our alert readers, Ethan Fineout, who spotted this on our mobile site, has let us know "that photo was taken at Seattle's Fremont neighborhood Solstice parade. Every year the parade begins with naked cyclists. I recognize the location and the phone number on the building (upper right in photo) matches the neighborhood." Thanks for solving the mystery so quickly, Ethan!
