For Immediate Release



The Metropolitan Transit System has intercepted an encrypted signal from the planet Qo'noS signaling an advanced team of Klingon warriors to take over the Gaslamp Trolley Station on Tuesday, July 20, at 6 a.m.

MTS Chief Executive Officer Paul Jablonski will meet the Klingons at the Gaslamp Trolley Station and respond to Klingon demands.

“We plan to negotiate with the Klingons in order keep our trains rolling,” Jablonski said. “We are prepared to offer expanded Trolley service during the Comic-Con International event in exchange for as-yet-unknown demands from the Klingons.”


The Klingons' warship is scheduled to arrive at 5:45 a.m. and according to the encrypted signal will begin to take over the station. Negotiations are expected to be complete in time for a 7 a.m. announcement.

Should the Klingons accept the proposed treatise for enhanced transit, conference attendees can buy a transit pass and travel for four days for just $15—less than one day of parking in downtown.

To celebrate the expected negotiated settlement, MTS is hosting a Comic-Con-inspired costume contest with Rock 105.3 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Tuesday night.


WHEN: July 20, 6 a.m. – 7 a.m.


      • Paul Jablonski, Chief Executive Officer, Metropolitan Transit System

      • Members of the Klingon theatrical group IKV Stranglehold:

      • Denise Hanon (Lt. Commander K'Hontas)

      • Martin Boots (beq K' etarip)

VISUALS: Klingons forcing MTS to put up new station signs in the Klingon language.
