Aimless Assimilating

| Working | November 3, 2013

(This happened when the ‘Star Trek Experience’ was open in Vegas. One of the gimmicks were they had actors dressed as the franchise’s iconic aliens walking around the hotel.)

Me: “Excuse me; my son is asking for a picture with the Borg drones that were in the lobby earlier. Do you know where they went?”

Receptionist: “Hmm, if they aren’t on the floor then they’re probably participating on one of the rides.”

Me: “Well do you know when they’ll be back? I mean are they on a rotation to come out, or do they just walk around aimlessly whenever they aren’t needed?”

(The receptionist gives me a funny look.)

Receptionist: “Sir, they’re the Borg. Walking around aimlessly is kind of what they’re known for.”

(I stare blankly for a moment.)

Receptionist: “Sorry, I just couldn’t let that one slip.”

Me: “No, no that was actually pretty good.”

(We eventually did manage to snag the drones after they reappeared, and specifically asked the receptionist to join us in the photo.)
