TR:  Note – The following breaking story is not a joke.

Officials approved the Central Bank of Iran’s new logo (below) to be displayed on their currency notes and coins to commemorate the recent successful launch and orbit of their home-crafted “data-processing” satellite named Omid.

“Omid” is Persian for “Hope” [clever!] and was delivered to low-orbit in space in early February 2009 by Iran’s Safir 2 rocket.  This development comes ironically at the same time as analysts predict Iran is on the verge of having refined enough highly-enriched uranium to construct their first nuclear bomb.  Iranian officials, who deny the Holocaust’s murder of six million Jews, and who continue to pledge to Allah and the world the utter destruction of the Nation of Israel, are adamant that their accelerating nuclear enrichment programs are strictly for “peaceful” purposes.

TR:  Huh, this logo seems mighty familiar to me..   Wait..  Those Persian bastard Trekkie Infidels!!

I can hear James Tiberius Kirk swiveling to center in his captain’s chair, and barking a few cogent orders in Shakespearean tone:

“Sulu – set our course immediately for the Sol system, planet Earth. 

Chekov – arm the photon torpedoes, and lock on ship’s phasers to Tehran, Iran, as soon as possible!”

For those readers who may need some assistance with this one, I simply offer this official Starfleet Command logo.  Persian blasphemy, I tell you!
