You Klingon bastard, you broke the Slurpee machine. Klingon bastard!

I like that he wore a mask to conceal his identity and then carried an easily identifiable and rare weapon. Kind of defeats the point.

Even better, both clerks knew it was a Bat'leth

You know some poor cop was scratching his head when writing that report: "A Bat what...you saying he robbed dress like Batman?"

Well we can only hope the cops knew what he was talking about as well. Its not that easy of a weapon to describe to someone who didn't know what it already looked like. It isn't a sword anyway, its more like Boe with a sharp edge...... hum....

Why didn't the clerks just stun him with the phaser they keep under the counter?

Because its charge was drained after using it on Shatner to prevent him from recording another album.

Yeah, I laughed at that too. Makes you wonder who was in there...

My good friend/old college roommate is a police officer in Co Springs (where the robberies took place), so he should know what it is. He's not really a Trek fan, but I think he absorbed enough through me over the years. I offered him the use of my old Klingon dictionary though, just in case they need to talk to the guy.

They use that to heat the nachos.

Bah. It's not a proper bat'leth without duranium alloy. And the hair of Kahless.

Level 6 for 2 seconds gets the cheese just right, it's true.

Re: Man Robs Convenience Stores With Klingon Sword

See you could never pull this off if you're a Star Wars fan/robber. "Oooh, he's waving a glowing stick thing at us, I guess we better hand over the till...God what a DORK!"

Now, what we really need is a nuBSG fan to build a animatronic Cylon Centurion and march it into a 7/11 for a beer run.
