News for Nerds: Denver Man Robs Convenience Store With Klingon Sword

via Channel 7 News, Denver CO:

"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."

Yes, the clerk recognized the weapon. I am not going to lie, Star Trek isn't exactly at the top of my nerdy pile of favorites, but I respect both the act of recognition and whatever drugs it requires for a man to rob a convenience store with a TV prop.
