Opening Arguments


Another sign the economy is really in the tank -- when even the nerds can't be counted on the feed their obsession:

No Romulan ale or Klingon blood pie for "Star Trek" fans this weekend in Indianapolis.

Days before the long-running annual "Star Trek" convention on the Eastside, the event's national organizer has pulled the plug. And that's left local organizers scrambling at warp speed to cobble together a replacement event.

"I'm sure a lot (of) it was because of the economy," said Kim Huff, convention chair for the local Starbase Indy fan club. "I don't doubt some of the numbers were down. The economy has been bad for everyone."

No, Kim, it has nothing to do with the economy. The Enterprise had to drop out of warp on the way here to deal with an infestation of Tribbles on Altair IV. Have you people at Starbase Indy lost your communicators, or is there too much interference in Mom and Dad's basement?

Leo, Leo, Leo....

It's not "Mom & Dad's basement"...

Call it ENGINEERING, or AUXILIARY CONTROL, or even the BATTLE BRIDGE, but don't bring Mom & Dad into it...LOL!
