Klingons to invade Gaslamp Trolley Station
Source: San Diego Metropolitan Transit System

The Metropolitan Transit System has intercepted an encrypted signal from the planet Qo'noS signaling an advanced team of Klingon warriors to take over the Gaslamp Trolley Station on Tuesday, July 20, at 6 a.m.

MTS Chief Executive Officer Paul Jablonski will meet the Klingons at the Gaslamp Trolley Station and respond to Klingon demands.

We plan to negotiate with the Klingons in order keep our trains rolling, Jablonski said. We are prepared to offer expanded Trolley service during the Comic-Con International event in exchange for as-yet-unknown demands from the Klingons.

The Klingons' warship is scheduled to arrive at 5:45 a.m. and according to the encrypted signal will begin to take over the station. Negotiations are expected to be complete in time for a 7 a.m. announcement.

Should the Klingons accept the proposed treatise for enhanced transit, conference attendees can buy a transit pass and travel for four days for just $15less than one day of parking in downtown.

To celebrate the expected negotiated settlement, MTS is hosting a Comic-Con-inspired costume contest with Rock 105.3 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Tuesday night.

WHEN: July 20, 6 a.m. 7 a.m.

WHO:
Paul Jablonski, Chief Executive Officer, Metropolitan Transit System
Members of the Klingon theatrical group IKV Stranglehold:
Denise Hanon (Lt. Commander K'Hontas)
Martin Boots (beq K' etarip)
Michael Lanaghan (Commander Martek)

VISUALS: Klingons forcing MTS to put up new station signs in the Klingon language.

2. I find it refreshing when a CEO lets his hair down and goes along
with frivolity like this.

8. Agreed
Lol, speaking of frivolity, has anyone seen this video? Apparently there's an epidemic of princesses getting abducted in NYC subways:

3. Wish I could be there!
That sounds like a lot of fun. Kudos to San Diego's transit system for supporting that huge convention and cutting down on the traffic headaches.

9. a friend of mine went to a convention where they had a talent contest
and someone she knew came out in klingon makeup wearing a cowgirl suit and sang Patsy Cline's 'Crazy' in perfect klingon. the best part was the guy who invented the language for the movies was a judge and was just floored. he said she was perfect. I would give a lot to have been there for that.

Bad enough that the Borg have taken over the financial systems of the world, with the help of the Ferengi....
