Pe’el! TlhIngan Hol Dajatlh’a'? Not yap wa’ Hol
Ian P-J has pointed to the NSA man whose office is in the form of the Star Trek Enterprise Bridge:
An article in Foreign Policy has this nugget:
“When he was running the Army’s Intelligence and Security Command, Alexander brought many of his future allies down to Fort Belvoir for a tour of his base of operations, a facility known as the Information Dominance Center. It had been designed by a Hollywood set designer to mimic the bridge of the starship Enterprise from Star Trek, complete with chrome panels, computer stations, a huge TV monitor on the forward wall, and doors that made a ‘whoosh’ sound when they slid open and closed.
Lawmakers and other important officials took turns sitting in a leather ‘captain’s chair’ in the center of the room and watched as Alexander, a lover of science-fiction movies, showed off his data tools on the big screen.
Well you know, I’m not altogether sure that Zero Hedge or Ian have it completely right here:
Megalomaniac Man In Charge Of The NSA Modeled His Office After The Bridge Of The Starship Enterprise
I mean, let’s cut the guy some slack – runs people’s private lives like a Klingon? Sounds legit to me. Megalomaniac? Who’s not when he’s on the bridge?
