Default The film is in the cans, the cans are in the theaters....

27 hours to launch time. I imagine those cans are probably locked and coded with a encryption that goes where no encryption has gone before. The theater manager probably has to step into a parallel universe, insert a quantum singularity into the locking device and pry it open with a stellar fragment. Then thread the film into a causality loop, run a complete diagnostic on the projector and insure that everything is functioning within established parameters, and by then, it'll be showtime.

Nah. Just a couple of big-a** dudes who will maim any trekkie who comes near. But just to keep in the spirit of things they may wear pointy ears.

Nah, not pointy ears, forehead ridges. Vulcans consider bouncing trekkies to be illogical. However, Klingons live to die in battle, especially with anyone wearing a Federation uniform.

That just means you havent seen a really big Vulcan yet. And if paid enough, I suspect these big Vulcans wouldnt give a damn about logic.

T-minus 27 hours to launch. Flight controllers report all systems are go. Public relations personnel expect a full gallery well before liftoff. There will no pre-set holds during countdown.

Is anyone taking a camera with them to photograph the line and whoever they're going with? I plan to. Just to commemorate the event.

ETA: YAY! I made Lt. Cmdr! I just noticed! Maybe 550 is the magic number.

They will more than likely not allow you to take it into the theater. Of course maybe that doesnt include cells with cameras.

We'll have to hire Zoe Saldana, put her in something skimpy and let her walk by them, that should keep them distracted while we sneak in. Sound like a plan?

Well of course not in the theater! I meant I was going to take photos outside the theater and then just stash the camera safely in my purse until after the show.
