    I suppose a better title should have been "Two morons break into TNG sets, up to no good"

    Wow, Shades of Gray played in slow motion isn't as boring as that!

    Geez, what a pair of morons. :wtf: :vulcan:

    Not that I can really say I'm surprised at this kind of stupidity. :guffaw: Do we think Paramount beefed up security after this incident?

    I have heard stories of props going missing (phasers and tricorders mostly), and that they started stamping the bottom of them with unique numbers in the movie era so that if the props were ever sold on, they'd be able to identify them as ones that were stolen. Don't know how true that is though.

    I think I watched that film. That's the one where they accidentally activate the transporter and end up in the cell where the CIA keeps the Gorn, right?

    I remember this. It made me wonder, did they ever use the sliding console feature in engineering in an episode?

    So the transporter room buttons actually did shit? LOL

    EDIT: So who's voice is that at the end? Did these losers get caught? Who uploaded this footage?

    EDIT2: Can anyone confirm this reader comment from jcarter1701 at this site?
    EDIT3: And from this site:
    Stone seems to post his own comments at the above link. Don't know if it's really him or not.

    EDIT4: Memory Alpha again:
    According to MA, though, he continued to work on the show until the third season.(?)

    God, the more google searches I do, the crazier this story gets.
    "Obtained" indeed.

    How's my hair?

    EDIT-lost-count: Okay, final edit, this is it -- a youtube comment from Gabriel Koerner:

    it seems really odd that they would let him keep working on the show after this happened.

    It sort of makes me angry that a "fan" would steal from star trek like that.

    I notice there's some defensive comments on the Youtube video from a "G Stone", wonder if it's actually him.

    More from Koerner at the youtube link. You can't make this shit up.
    Too bad they didn't get that on video for the big finish.

    From "David West:"
    Facebook:
    I hope it's not him, because there are some really bizarre comments.

    EDIT: Something "Captain" Stone just posted at this link. It seems he and Ralhp Miller had a bit of a falling out. He doesn't mention his escapade with Miller (if that was Miller) on the TNG set, though.

    And at this link, our own Mutai Sho-Rin speaks to the infamous Captain Stone!

    Gabe Koerner also confirmed on Facebook that it is Ralph Miller as the cameraman, but has since deleted the comment. At least, he's deleted the comment where he confirms it, but left up the one where he mentions the possibility.

    It would fit with other stories I've heard tell about Ralph.

    Captain guy: "How's it look?"

    Camera guy: "Like a cameo."

    Captain guy: "Like a camera?"

    Camera guy: "Cameo."

    Whoever thought of looping the part where Captain Stone falls with the medical bed... pure genius.

    These guys prove there are people who're not swift enough to be cast in a "Jackass" movie....

    Well, you may get your chance to hurl your invectives at Capt. Stone directly, since it appears he's joined the board, posted one message (link) and claims he'll address the issue of the video.

    OK, I'll admit it does take 'stones' to show this....
