    Masked Man Robs Convenience Stores With Klingon Sword
    Clerks Recognize Sword As Batleth

    COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. -- Colorado Springs police are looking for a man who hit two 7-Eleven convenience stores early Wednesday, armed with a Klingon sword.

    The first robbery was reported at 1:50 a.m., at 145 N Spruce St. The clerk told police a white man in his 20s, wearing a black jacket, blue jeans and wearing a black mask, entered the store with a weapon the clerk recognized from the Star Trek TV series.

    The robber demanded money and left with an undisclosed amount.

    A half hour later, police received a call from a 7-Eleven at 2407 N. Union Blvd., where a man matching the previous description entered the store with a similar weapon. He also demanded money from the store clerk. The clerk refused and the robber ran off.

    Both clerks described the weapon as a Star Trek Klingon type sword, called a "Batleth."

    Neither clerk was injured in the robberie

    :rofl::rofl: if your going to rob a place you need to use a weapon they'll take seriously, thats not it.

    You know when we had the thread a week or two ago with the people being shot with a bow and arrow in the office, I couldn't help but think how retarded we've become as a society that we make ourselves so helpless that we have to fear a nut loose with a bow and arrow. I'd feel so dumb if I ever got hurt by someone like that. This isn't much better.

    Rest assured though, if I ever go off the deep end with a middle ages weaponry rampage, I'll make it count. Omg, whats what at the front door? Its a siege engine and a trebuchet!

    Imagine that. Two convenience store employees had an encyclopedic knowledge of Star Trek weaponry.

    could you imagine the interview?

    officer: Can you describe the weapon to me? Was it some sort of blade?
    employee: I do believe that the weapon the attacker was wielding was a Bat'leth - it's a curved blade with spiked protrusions and three handholds along the middle of the blade's back. In battle, the handholds are used to twirl and spin the blade rapidly.
    officer: :eek3: :wtf:

    Officer: Try again, In English, not Klingon. And if you start speaking in Romulan, Huttesse, or anything else, I'm just going to shoot you. This 9mm Glock does NOT have a "stun" feature, by the way!

    so that narrows it down to only star wars fans... that should be easy to round them up for the line up.

    You'd have a lineup of the wrong people, but that's probably what they'll do:rofl:

    My fault, for mentioning Huttesse (a Star Wars made-up language)?


    Ahh, good point!

    He left in dishonor! A real Klingon warrior would've sliced him open for refusing to comply.
