Houston TX-- Alarmed NASA scientists informed the president today of an extraordinary discovery. The refitted Hubble Space Telescope imaged a spaceship orbiting the planet Saturn. The spaceship has been identified as a Romulan Warbird. The United Nations was also informed of the remarkable discovery.
The ship was actually spotted last week by Hubble. The Cassini Probe, which has been orbiting Saturn for years, was ordered to take a closer look earlier today. Cassini imaged remarkable detail of the greenish Warbird, right down to the windows. Men with pointy ears and bad haircuts could be seen looking out and waving towards the probe.
President Obama was in conference with both William Shatner and Patrick Stewart about what to do. The Warbird has shown no signs of aggression towards the Earth, but that could change in an instant.
The president has also spoken with Leonard Nimoy. He has asked the actor to wear his Vulcan makeup until the crisis comes to a resolution.
Millions of Star Trek fans, or Trekkie's, have been emailing the White House. Many of these Trekkie's are fluent in both the Vulcan and Romulan languages. They are recommending President Obama send a message of total surrender to the Romulans!
