Apparently there is a group of legislators and staff who are Star Trek aficionados, according to the Record Journal. They meet regularly for lunch, and probably discuss how to vaporize our economy over some Romulan ale. They have a Captain, too! It's Rep. Mary Mushinsky (D-Wallingford, pictured in uniform courtesy of the Record Journal).
Sometimes you see something that just makes everything make sense. I was fairly certain that legislators like Mushinsky were not living in reality, or even on Earth. This confirms it.
"Captain" Mushinsky lacks the swagger of Kirk, and it is difficult to imagine her as commanding anything other than a plastic bath tub toy.
Who else plays Star Trek with Mushinsky? None of the other legislators are named in the article. Does Rep. Tim O'Brien put on Spock ears and try to knock out his colleagues with a Vulcan nerve pinch? Does Rep. Michael Lawlor wave a plastic tricorder over legislation and proclaim grimly "Dammit Jim, that's Unconstitutional!"
I would really enjoy seeing Speaker Amann stuff himself in one of those red tunic shirts, and yell in a Scottish brogue "Captain, I'm giving her all she's got, but the dilithium crystals in the dias are burned out!"
In the meantime, our remaining House Supermajority have their phasers set on tax, and they are about to photon torpedo our economy into smithereens.
