I could be wrong, but I believe this is probably the first time "Star Trek" (as opposed to "Star Wars") has been referenced on the floor of the American House of Representatives.

It's a sort of milestone I suppose.

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.

"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.
