Beam me up, Mohammed!
And you guys were worried about the fate of the American empire…
Just when you thought you were going to have to cancel your trip to the Middle East because of their VERY inconvenient push-for-basic-political-freedoms thing (ugh), Paramount Pictures has announced a joint ventured with a Jordan built company to build a Star Trek themed amusement park in Jordan. What confusing/exciting news!
Now, I always figured this glorious development would never happen, because as we all know space travel is just a Zionist plot to colonize the moon. But it turns out that in the same way that people everywhere demand democratic reform, so too do all regions of this world have nerds, and I guess that’s who this park is for.
So good for you Middle Eastern dorks! I know you were very upset when during the Arab Spring many leaders shut down the internet so you couldn’t play Star Craft, but this should make up for it. Let us support you through kitschy 1960s sci-fi.
