I wacky parsed that as ISIS and thought WTF? I can’t be the only one.


#3

@xeni blank title here on the BBS.

eta: fixed thanks!


#4

Probably because the title on the main page says “Star Wars”


#5

OOOps, yeah probably should be Star Trek…


#6

As other have already noted, Trek != Wars. I was deeply confused by the Wars headline coupled with the Trek font. Then I realized it was an editing mistake. It still bothers me, but not quite as much.

Now it’s fixed, tho. Except for the URL, which is still busted:
starwarsiss.html

What?

Has NASA never heard of Skylab?


#8

I did too! I thought it was a satire article until I read the headline a second time.

To be honest, I’m a little disappointed. :smirk:


#9

I love the part where Obi-Wan was turning off HAL-9000…

‘NASA: The City On the Edge of Forever’ explores links between Star Trek and the ISS

FTFY


#12

O/t, but whenever I see Christopher Lee as Saruman or Count Dooku, I can’t help but think of him as Sender from The Stupids.


#13

Enough with the fake lens flares already!!!


#14

you are not. “Leave Star Trek alone, you filthy terrorists! This is one step too far! Uh… wait.”


#15

Well, technically, 40-odd years are “more than 15 years”.


#16

I salute that line of reasoning.
