    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.

    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.
