Where No Klingon Has Gone Before

OK – what’s weirder? That somebody used a Bat’leth to rob a 7-11, or that somebody recognized it as a Bat’leth?

Star Trek is deep inside American culture.

It may be a galactic first — a Colorado Springs 7-Eleven convenience store robbed early today by a man wielding a Klingon Bat’leth blade.

It’s the weapon of choice for the war-like race on “Star Trek,” but fairly rare in stickups on Earth.
A convenience store clerk told police that a robber in a dark jacket and a black mask wielded the long, curved blade invented for the science fiction franchise that grew out of the 1960s television series.
Police said the weapon – which is held with both hands in the center and at least four of five feet long – seems ill suited to robbing gas stations.
“I can’t imagine it’s very easy to conceal,” Tobias said.
Police said the man got away with cash after robbing a 7-Eleven at 145 N Spruce St. at about 1:45 a.m. A second attempt about a half-hour later ended when he ran away from another 7-Eleven store at 2407 N. Union Blvd.
Police say the “uniqueness” of the weapon will likely be key to their investigation.

This Star Trek Home Theater

Trekkie Heaven

clipped from gizmodo.com

StarTrek_Bridge_Rear.jpgThis Star Trek TNG home theater is ubergeek in the absolute best way, which is probably why at CEDIA 2007 it was named the best theme theater installation. Featuring a quasi-faithful re-creation of the Enterprise NCC-1701D, motion activated “air-lock” doors and an alert button producing an alarm and flurry of red LED lighting are enough to keep us entertained even if, say, the theater were only 720p.

While the owner wishes to remain anonymous and we lack specs on the complete setup, the piece de resistance has to be one of the largest Kaleidescape hard drive storage systems in the world, with eight servers holding 3,816 DVDs. We’d probably be too busy drinking at the bar full of scifi memorabilia to watch our choice of Hilary Duff films, our minds blown at Robby the Robot hanging out with members of the Federation.
