I just got back from two weeks of low steaks gambling and sports betting in Reno and then Vegas and I took my 3 CIC polos with me and ran into about four people that recognized them. I'm not really sure if they just lurk here or what but everywhere I vacation I seem to meet one person who recognizes the shirt. It's nice to see how far reaching this community is.

Also, anyone who might be think about a trip to vegas, you might consider not wearing anything making reference to the CIC into Star Trek: The Expirience. I got several strange looks from folks.

You got a point, anyone who wears both a CIC polo shirt and buttless chaps is going to be recognized one way or the other.

Wow, yeah, just imagine the possibilities... people could trade Star Wars DVDs for Star Trek DVDs. The chaos this would cause, it's mind-boggling!

(seriously, DragonCon includes both Star Wars and Star Trek, as well as dozens of other sci-fi fandoms, and nothing happens; I don't see any reason to believe that the fans of these two series don't get along, especially considering that many of them are fans of both series)

Eh, as a Star Trek fan...I hate passionately the Star Wars side of myself.

It's a vicious life.
