Of course you can have it back, you foolishly took it out of the original box!

Leg it lads! They're onto us!

I vote Picard for President of the United Federation of Planets, since he is an unmitigated badass.

Ok, silliness dispensed with for a moment (a glaring break with tradition if ever there was one), it has to be said that of all the things I have heard coming out of our security services over the course of my life, this has to be one of the stupidest things I have come across.

First of all, a proper Trekkie is a threat to no bugger. I know A LOT of Trekkies. I am a massive nerd for anything Trek related myself, aside from that ghastly abortion that was the Enterprise being captained by Scott Bakula...eesh! The one thing that I have noted is that people who are seriously into the Star Trek universe, are captured as much by the ethos of IDIC (Infinite Diversity in Infinite Combinations, the core principle of Vulcan philosophy, and a concept which helped from the UNFP) as they are by the way individual episodes play out, the look of the show, and the way the different factions within it come together.

Of all the possible sources of danger and threat, a group of people dedicated to that principle, are about as lethal to the human race as clean air and plenty of exercise is!

Aptly put, my metallic one. But since the Yard has a soft-off for the
Trekkies, and Amerika wants a lady President this time by unpopulist
propaganda bandwaggonage... well, all that for later to avoid at least
initial need for adjustment due to thread drift.

My impulse for any professional force with the track record of those
fellows-- actually giving the credence as people of interest [dressing
in ill fitting underclothes and facial prostheses before piling into the
cab for the galactic kegger) is an unparalleled wild stretch of paranoia.
From Whence came the original article calls for less contraband brownies:
and a full snoop of the baker's briefcase for good measure.

Back to that diversion of a hubby-team White House in 2016----
I say the pair instead of the Clintons this time around should be

Rachel and Dan!

She's never been on any Star Trek incarnation / installment ... check

She's however quite celestial, and for babe quotient swamps the
present unmentionable Democratic front runner ... check

And the back-up (VP) unit's already vetted by MI5. Go Commander.
PS he can even make a solid color T-shirt look deadly-- at least food
shopping (" God when will they leave us alone??")

I suppose the moral of the post (is): maybe looks are deceiving,
especially when blowing a threat assessment. *sigh*

Ban them, or mark my words, those Trekkies and Stars Wars fans will be having gun fights in restaurant car parks next.

Gene had drafted a proposal for the Star Trek series as early as 1964.
The Apollo program in the States with the moon landing proposed by Kennedy had fooled more people than they expected.

I would have been under 6 when the moon landing hoax was disclosed.
The memory of that moment is clear, I felt deceived.

The heavens gate breakaway civilization probably goes back to 1947 and comet Leah.
The memories are over 50 years old and there is too much subspace interference to recover them now.
I have to go to work, maybe later O huron will have some more pieces to the puzzle.

It's hard to believe this was ever a genuine thing. Star Trek fans in the UK have never been that big - Doctor Who was and is bigger.

And I would have thought The Doctor epresented a greater threat since he is anarchic and anti-authoritarian. Star Trek is a vision of the future as a vast hierarchical bureaucracy with loads of laws and directives.

The government must love it!
