    Back in the '80s our local Star Trek group decided to design uniforms for ourselves, and headed off to a fabric store. The clerk kept trying to steer us to the shiny red material, and couldn't understand why we kept telling her no, we absolutely could not have red uniforms, because we didn't want to die.

    Seemed obvious to us. :p

    Hawkman... hmm. That's a character in F. M. Busby's Hulzein Saga novels, right? ;)

    I went to a scifi-themed restaurant once where the salads were listed on the menu as "Soylent Green."

    Sadly, our waitress didn't seem to get the joke . . ..

    Years ago when I worked in restaurants I served a guy who's credit card read

    Mr James Kirk

    I wanted to say something but he was an older guy (he would have been born pre 66) so I figured he probably gets it all the time.

    :lol:

    Well after everything has been thoroughly examined and analyzed and you come back to the start of this thread the bottom line is:
    That´s a hell of a funny anecdote, Trek fan or not! Thanks for sharing :techman::techman::techman:
