taking down a terrorist. :wtf:

This is what happens when bad google searches happen to uncautious people.

To be fair, I've "googled" this story, and haven't found it anywhere else. Lets hope "I" haven't fallen prey to the same sloppy "reporting".

:eek:

As an aside... I love this fan group's take on "their" Maquis emblem, especially with the phaser the eagle is standing on.

You probably would have found it elsewhere if it had happened in the US.

Now lets think this through, since you posted in the VOY forum. Chakotay storming Osama's compound, could he do it?

Tuvok must have made the decision to kill hi. After all, it's only logical.

OOooooooo... Rambo Chak

PLUS Chakotay and his team would have phasers. Though of course they could have set them to stun.

I wish all news reporting mistakenly included Trek. It would be so much fun.

I'm seeing Torres in commando gear, including an MP-5. :D

Awesome news gaffe, LOL.

Ouch. This just confirms my low opinion of the network. They call themselves a news channel, but half of their news ticker content is advertising, their weather reports are sponsored by an airline and presented by a woman in flight attendant outfit... and just last week they aired a "documentary" about Nazi UFOs. ;-)

This now is just the tip of the iceberg.

Maybe this IS the Trek news BlobVanDam wanted!

That's the only time I've ever thought Space Lizard alien Nazis were remotely interesting.

Why would the Maquis badge have a klingon skull and batleths on it? Surely it should be a spoonhead skull?
