COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) - Colorado police say a man with
too much "Star Trek" on his mind used a sword modeled after the
weapon carried by Klingon warriors to demand money from two
Investigators say the man took an unknown amount of cash from a
7-Eleven store Wednesday but left empty-handed when he tried to rob
another store about 25 minutes later.
Police Lt. David Whitlock says no one was injured.
The StarTrek.com Web site says the double-pointed sword used by
the Klingons on "Star Trek" is crescent-shaped and about a yard
long. Police did not specify what material it was made of.
No one has been charged in the incident.
