The Prophecies Are True!

Long foretold, the day is finally upon us: Star Trek Day!

Before we proceed, let us salute the genius of K-L(ing)O(n). If you despise the Star Trek ban, your hopes and dreams have finally been realized for now you can wallow in Star Trek like a Horta in silicon-based cement! And, if you despise Star Trek, the ban has successfully kept Trek out of The Corner since June, 2006. And, if you hate NRO pledge drives but love, hate or couldn’t care less about Star Trek one way or the other, the hassle factor of the Star Trek Day promise has prevented another pledge drive for more than a year. Layers within layers of brilliance!
