They showed this clip on The Daily Show this eve. I think it took so long to show because, if my ears don’t deceive me (and they might), they had phone-ins from Leonard Nimoy and George Takei.

In the midst of all this, though, I think yon Senator should have realized that the war was being run by Romulans, dammit. Related to Vulcans, hot-blooded, fancy technology, ignores the neutral zone…

"Ready, Aye, Ready" was a slogan used by Canadian politicians to indicate Canada's willingness to assist the British Empire in any conflict. It remains in use as a motto for some of the Canadian military. It has almost nothing to do with the content of this blog.
