COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) — Colorado police say a man with too much Star Trek on his mind used a sword modelled after the weapon carried by Klingon warriors to demand money from two convenience stores.
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 website says the double-pointed sword used by the Klingons on Star Trek is crescent-shaped and about a metre long.
