The things you find Googling

So I'm looking up Vulcan starship lengths earlier, and came across a very odd picture of a large 1701-A sort of ship.

Soon I learned that this was a giant model of the Enterprise, looking a bit different to avoid copyright issues, and built for the town of Vulcan, Alberta in Canada. It seems that they've taken their town's name and run with it, Trek-ifying the place. There's the giant model sitting in town, the "starbase" visitor's center, and, inevitably, the LCARS-themed website.

Fascinating.

Slightly disturbing, but fascinating.
