If they didn't, I think that's what TacoFangs means.

If they did, then I have no clue.

I do remember them mentioning 'Vasquez Rocks' when they were in the car. And though the Mintakan episode in TNG was filmed there, perhaps Taco was expecting some sort of banter among the guys relating to that. I mean, if the whole TOS set/TNG outfit thing is obvious to us, even if it's not entirely out of place, it would have been good for a Sheldon 'matter of fact' moment. But given the whole TOS/TNG joke once they make it into town, maybe they didn't want to step on their own toes.

They can take a flying leap for those prices. Good Gawd
Holy ****? Almost $600?

I have a TNG red uniform my wife makes me keep in the basement. Cost me way too much, but still, $50 for the uniform, $25 for the com badge, and $15 for the captain's pips - the sort of money a bachelor doesn't really think twice about spending on something they think is awesome. Perhaps the insignia aren't as high quality as the ones there, but the ones on the show were painted wood.

Nah, I know that other things were filmed there, but the iconic episode for Vasquez Rocks was Arena.

Ohh, those two were classics from my early childhood.

In my defense, 90% of the Mojave and a big chunk of Nevada look more or less the same.

You know, I'm surprised as well. Maybe they don't know there is a Star Trek Online?


I could see them making fun of being assimilated by the Borg and freaking out. Or a few of them flying Mirandas and here comes Sheldon in a Galaxy.
NO to ARC!

One of the male patrons was wearing a Statesman COH shirt as well. That shirt has been featured on a few episodes.
