First. like the bag

2. Charlie - January 7, 2009

Actually.. Just sell me the bag!!!

3. harris250 - January 7, 2009

# 2 …”just sell me the bag”…

Ya me too…

4. Greg - January 7, 2009

I would use the bag to bring an end to this sensless Kirk vs. Picard struggle once and for all.

5. J J Miller - January 7, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG – Because being morbidly obese, wearing tatty con t-shirts from a dozen years ago and living with my mother is simply to subtle a signal of my geekdom. Please, I need this bag.

6. ALEX - January 7, 2009

I WOULD USE THE BAG TO SHOW ALL PEOPLE WHO THINK STAR TREK IS DEAD IS STILL ALIVE AND KICKING.

7. Michael - January 7, 2009

is easily to storage luggage, a laptop with accessoires or to use it as a schoolbag

8. Michael - January 7, 2009

it is easily to storage luggage, a laptop with accessoires or to use it as a schoolbag. It will be in good use for many stuff

9. DaveM - January 7, 2009

Why I need the Star Trek Messenger Bag…

It would be a cool way for me to bring all my Star Trek swag home after various shopping excusrions prior to the new movie opening.

10. Locutus of Alberni - January 7, 2009

Why I Need the Bag – I need the bag for a very simple reason. I need it so that I can disguise the fake documents I require. My belief is that customs agents would not overly inspect a bag of such nerdish nature. That would allow me to obtain an illegal US Residency, so that I would be able to actually participate in this contest.

11. Doktor Gonzo - January 7, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG – As a vital tool in exploring strange new worlds, seeking out new life and new civilizations, and boldly going where no laptop-toting man has gone before!

12. Na Jo - January 7, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG… to carry tribbles. Or one tribble and some bloodwine.

13. Aaron - January 7, 2009

To be honest, i really don’t need the bag. If i was to win it I would give it to my wife, who is a bigger star trek fan than me (which is hard to believe). I would also fill it with Star Trek: The Next Generation (seasons 1-7) DVD box sets. TNG is her favorite.

14. OneBuckFilms - January 7, 2009

I would use this to carry the items I would obtain from Comic-Con, as well as merchandize related to the new movie (Uniform, Phaser, Communicator, Tricorder and Soundtrack).

In addition, as the Captain of the USS Churchill, the Orange County chapter of the International Federation of Trekkers, I would use this to carry any and all items necessary for Churchuill Away Missions.

It will also show once and for all that Star Trek, and Optimism, is always “cool”, and subliminally express what Star Trek means to me.

15. Pat D - January 7, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG

It’s awesome. I’ve been a fan since 1973 and I’ll use it to carry my shit around everywhere I go until it falls apart or someone pries it from my cold, dead hand.

16. The Weary Professor - January 7, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG
by The Weary Vulcan Professor
Having recently journeyed far beyond my native abode to a new domicile, I was somewhat taken aback to discern a substantial lack of mobile storage capacity. This situation persists. Logic dictates, in this particular instance, that the needs of the one–this wayfaring educator–outweighs the needs of the many others reading this site who may not find this object a necessity. I shall hope to receive the item somewhat promptly by interstellar post, but as I statistically expect a rather long life, I shall be tolerantly patient.

17. Anthony Pascale - January 7, 2009

A reminder to all who really are making an ‘entry’ to preface it with

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG

from this post on, all posts without that will not be considered ‘entries.’

18. SZC - January 7, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG:
Because you know Sheldon will have one and even though I refuse to admit it, I’m as big a Star Trek geek as he is.
Leonard might give Sheldon crap, but its nothing compared to the grief I will receive from my wife for carrying around such a cool bag. But hey, I can be completely ignorant of reality too.

19. SciFiMetalGirl - January 7, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG:

Everyone knows that I am uber Star Trek geek, but I would be unable to proclaim my uber Star Trek chic unless I was able to be sporting the latest in Star Trek gear! I would take it everywhere, and use it to show everyone how ultra-cool Star Trek is, and then tell them how great the new Star Trek movie is! Then I would drag them into the theater to see it!

20. Cube Dweller - January 7, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG
GREED!!! What would I use it for? To complete my 100+ piece collection of Star Trek memorabilia cluttering my home and office.

21. Ler - January 7, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG:

As an enterprising young man building my own small in-home IT business, this bag would be perfect to help show off my intense Trek fandom and work towards bringing the masses to this wonderful franchise. I’ve already converted my wife into a huge Trek fan (she even wants to dress up for the premier!) and would love for us to be able to show the world that WE LOVE TREK!!! Plus I am a big fan of IBM’s products :)

22. AJ - January 7, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG

I am not afraid to display that logo in public. And from the buildup to May, I think it’ll be a hot tamale.

Also, it beats my clunky briefcase if I am running around outside in sweats.

I could mention Captain Robau here, but I’ve done it too much elsewhere today!

23. The Orignal Next Generation Deep Space Voyager Enterprise - January 7, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG:

Actually, I’ll be honest, I don’t. But you know what? It would be fun to scalp on eBay, hardy har harr!

24. Michael Scott - January 7, 2009

It’s just too damn cool!

25. Hofmann - January 7, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG

It’s simple– because I need some place to carry my kids. THINK ABOUT THE CHILDREN!

26. AJ - January 7, 2009

Anthony…sorry…the link is missing a “y” I think.

27. Darkwater - January 7, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG

None of us need, we all want. I want.

28. SeaTrekFan - January 7, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG:

I’m finishing up college this year. If I get this bag, I’ll be able to use this bag to carry my books and laptop, as well as carry my papers and resumes when I take it with me to job interviews.
Many people are trek fans from way back, and if one of my potential employers sees this bag, it could spark a conversation that might end with me getting a job.

29. quacks5 - January 7, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG

I haven’t been able to find a purse that will hold my PDA, phone, MP3 player, GPS unit, and digital camera while simultaneously displaying Star Trek and Intel logos–until now! And basic black goes with everything.

30. Fenton - January 7, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG: Carrying this bag athrough the airport will make the TSA think twice about accusing me of being a terrorist.

31. LoyalStarTrekFan - January 7, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG

On top of being a huge Trekkie and I would love having this bag to further my Trek collection, I would use it for real world items as well. Either as a place to keep my Star Trek magazines or reference books safe and at a central location or a place to keep items I need to be able to move around easily to help organize my life.

32. Devoras - January 7, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG

Because it’d be great to use to carry all my Star Trek CCG cards along in.

33. Weerd1 - January 7, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG

I can put my Mac in it.

34. Jake Browne - January 7, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG

So I can carry around thousands of reasons of why everyone should check out the new Star Trek Movie!

35. Brian Denham - January 7, 2009

“WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG”

I DON’T need the Star Trek messenger bag. YOU NEED ME TO HAVE IT!

While I’m waiting in queue for the months of April and May you will want to check in with me to see how the truly dedicated Star Trek fans are living.

I’m the right man to test the Lenovo IdeaPad Y530 laptop by sending asphalt news and working his regular dayjob on the best laptop on said street.

The Human Adventure is just beginning and you will have given this laptop to the right person to let you know about it.

36. Sybok - January 7, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG

Because my wife would like me to carry something at all times that keeps other women as far away from me as possible.

37. Michael - January 7, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG
It would be very useful carrying my pc and wound clinic paper work to the job each day. As well as snacks and my insulin to manage my diabetes. I also carry my baby monitor so I know when my wife will soon give birth to our as soonmas our new son is arriving on planet earth!

38. Dan - January 7, 2009

“WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG”

39. Sean - January 7, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG:

To get conversations started with other people about Star Trek! There are plenty of closet Trekkers out there that just need a reason to talk Trek!

(I already have my black “Resistance is Futile” shirt, this would go great with it!)

40. 750 Mang - January 7, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG

So I’ll have something cool to lug my scripts and novel around in.

RTF!

41. Dan - January 7, 2009

“WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG”

Because Captian Robau wills it! Plus we use Lenovo systems at my office.

42. William Yearout - January 7, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG”

So when people asked me about it, I could not only tell them about the new movie, but also direct them to this site. I could also add it to my ever-growing Trek collection. Also, I’d be carrying this around a high school, people are bound to ask me what’s on my bag and where I got it. And ‘Star Trek’ is gonna need all the hype it can get.

43. Tom - January 7, 2009

I need a Star Trek messenger bag so I can carry my laptop in public and have people yell at me “look a Trekkie” as i ride my bike past them

44. Michael Hanscom - January 7, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG: The envy of all my peers! Oh, more than that? I’m another long-time fan, who grew up with the original series, sitting on my dad’s lap watching some of the earliest syndicated reruns, excitedly pointing somewhere backwards over my left shoulder, exclaiming “SPEEESSHHH!!!” as the Enterprise flew across the screen during Kirk’s “Space…the final frontier…” opening narration. Got my one and only autograph from Nichelle Nichols at one of the few conventions in 1980’s Anchorage, Alaska. Learned the Greek alphabet because it was presented as an ‘alien alphabet’ in an early Technical Manual…and many other geeky exploits. Hopefully that’s enough!

45. OM - January 7, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG:

I’d actually like a *nice* bag to put all my diabetes and pain medications in, rather than the bland blue bag I currently use. Not that I ever win anything anyway…:-P

46. Jaben F - January 7, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG

I need the bag because I need a new bag for my laptop, and being on a college campus, it will raise awareness for the film.

47. Mike - January 7, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG

Because I never win anything.

48. cpelc - January 7, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG:

Because everything I put inside it would be considered canon.

Plus it could house my William Shatner hairpiece.

49. Enterprise's helmsman - January 7, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG:

To give to my daughter to use at school. She is a major Trek fan. She even had her school photo taken with a communicator pin on.

50. Carlos Pedraza - January 7, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG – because I want to show it an episode of Star Trek: Phase II.

51. Kruge - January 7, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG:

Because I didn’t win it in the Prime timeline.

52. Eric Cheung - January 7, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG

I’m moving back to Boston soon. Going to work I’ve used the laptop bag my dad gave me. I don’t like the foam fabric in my Targus bag; I’ve been using it to carry lunch and The Onion. This bag’s fabric looks more comfortable, durable, and lunch-worthy. I’ll replace The Onion with The Metro or The Boston Phoenix. The Metro is laughable enough to be mistaken for the Onion.

I like this bag too. It’s tastefully done while still Trek. Is it me or is the pattern on the bag similar to the interlocked delta insignias on the new uniforms?

53. That One Guy - January 7, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG

I am a freshmen college student who has a computer and books to carry around campus. My old backpack that I am using now is years old and is beginning to fall apart. I do not have the money at this time to buy a new one, such is the life of a student. Quite simply, I actually need it. Ohio winter weather is unforgiving to bare flesh, much less textbooks and papers, so a new bag would be nice to have.

54. Quarksbartender - January 7, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG

Its simple! My ultimate Star Trek collection will be complete, and without it there will be a hole the size of a messenger bag in my collection, and we all no that is no fun.

55. Aucka - January 7, 2009

An alien probe has visited earth in the late 23rd century seeking an extinct variety of synthetic material. Without this material, the probe will destroy the earth. I have traveled back in time to the 21st century in an attempt to recover a sample of this synthetic material, to bring back to the 23rd century, and attempt to save the planet.

And I like Italian.

56. Rich - January 7, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG:

Because it’s freaking sweet! Anything I put into it, even if not Trek related, will instantly become cooler. “Trek chic from chic-lessness.” It’s like a Genesis Device you can put over your shoulder.

57. Balls - January 7, 2009

I want all my friends to say to me (in a true Shatneresque way), “What’s in the bag? C’mon, what’s in the bag? Much the same way that Shatner parodied the movie “Se7en” on the MTV movie awards.

58. Tom - January 7, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG – I have been a Star Trek fan for 36 years of my 39 years of life. I do have to give some credit to Seasame street lol. As a kid my family moved around alot. I had a hard time making friends but kirk spock and mccoy were always there. We i got into the teen years and i was having problems relating with my Dad i could still sit down and watch star trek with him. Now as a working professional and parent I realize how much star trek has taught me about life. I know it sound rediculous but when i make a discisions at work i often think how would kirk handle this. lol. Of course, my choices dont involve alien life and the prime directive. But, my choice to affect my staff. well anyway the bag is just a great reminder of childhood and i would proudly use it for stay young placing my workout clothes in it. Well i guess thats as deep as i get. Hope its not to corny.

59. MiniKirk - January 7, 2009

“Why I Need The Star Trek Messenger Bag”

There’s this guy. Let’s call him Steve. Steve isn’t a special guy. In fact he’s just your average Joe Everyman. Everything he has is broken or breaking. Including his messenger back, which he takes with him everywhere. It holds clothes for short trips, and his notebooks, pens, and other books for everyday things. Sadly, Steve lacks the money to replace his falling apart messenger bag. He was supposed to get one for Christmas, but his family spent that money on his siblings, and themselves. For the record I am Steve, and that’s not my real name.

60. trekkie1701D - January 7, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG:

I need this bag, because I recently got a laptop for school and have not had the cash to buy a bag and even if I did, who could pass up a chance for a STAR TREK laptop bag! I would, of course, use it to carry my laptop and accessories along with a few Trek book and magazines to read while I’m on the go.

61. dafnap - January 7, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG:

Because the Deep Space Nine bookbag I had been totting since I got it for my 12th birthday (an Enterprise shaped birthday cake may have been a distinct possibility.) fell apart a decade later on the steps of my college library spilling most of my midterm onto a very, very wet puddle. There is also another distinct possibility that I almost cried. Over the bag, not the midterm. Please help heal this old, old wound. Because nothing says closure like free stuff, right?

62. Jeff Driscoll - January 7, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG

So I can proudly display my geekdom looking nice and suave with the sleek looking bag, brag about the new Trek movie, and show off the look of the new Trek film to anyone and everyone I run into (even if they don’t want to hear about it). I’d make sure to have my laptop in the bag… although it’s unfortunately not an Intel Lenovo… you wanna give away one of those next?

63. rm10019 - January 7, 2009

Why I need the Star Trek Messenger Bag:

I have been a lifelong Trek fan, enjoying the show with my brother Ben and my parents and even collected Trek items through the years. The bag would be the perfect thing to introduce the new Trek 2009 to my family. I would probably put the new Trek Barbies in it when they come out :)

64. Brian Bufalo - January 7, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG:

I need this awesome messenger bag as I start another college semester next week and really need a way to keep my school and laptop in order.

65. John Kirk - January 7, 2009

I need the bag to carry the parts from the cloaking device I stole from the romulan vessel that crash landed in my back yard. Star Fleet is awaitng my arrival, but I need a star fleet bag to protect myself from harmful radiation from the effects of the crash.
As soon as I have the bag, the sooner Star Fleet can get the parts.
Mr. Scott, Speed is of the essence…

66. Anthony Pascale - January 7, 2009

Reminder:

Lenovo is giving away bags as well
boldlygo.intel.com/newfrontiers

the laptops are just the ‘grand prize’ they are also giving out a number of bags…so you have two chances to win one

67. Enterprise - January 7, 2009

Good Lord, are people this desperate? it’s just a bag people!

68. sundawg - January 7, 2009

I need the bag to carry my new laptop, which never leaves the house without a Star Trek desktop and screensaver on it (among other Star Trek related work)

69. Kirk09 - January 7, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG:

I need the bag so I can fill it with home-made promotional materials for the film and for trekmovie.com that I intend to distribute to everybody I see…flyers, pamphlets, homemade posters, dvds with the trailers on it… detailing the film, why its different and better than previous films, and why they should go see it when it comes out… this promotional material has a list off all the major sites for this new film…INCLUDING THIS SITE HERE :)

I’d carry the bag everywhere I go :) and if I get the bag I promise to send in a pic of me wearing the bag :)

75. Mike Ferrelli - January 7, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG -by Mike Ferrelli

I’m an Occupational Therapist, and being that I work in the medical field, I need that bag to hold my MARK IV Tricorder and other OT related equipment (everyone loves the Tribble prop & Phaser laser pointer). Then I can identify myself as being from Star Fleet Medical and whip out the tricorder for a scan. My patients would love it. That bag would better enable me to care for the elderly, please, think of your parents and grandparents, this is for a good cause. :)

76. Spock89 - January 7, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG:

I am a 19 year old junior in college and am a huge Trekkie (as well as a Star Wars fan but I digress). I would use the bag to carry my books, school supplies, etc, and to show that there are actually people from my generation who like Star Trek.

77. Kenneth Of Borg - January 7, 2009

I need your bags to hold a few things at the LA premiere of Star Trek. I was criticized for bidding so high in my eBay donation to The Liberty Hill Foundation. This landed me two tickets to the LA premiere as guest of Mr. Abrams. Now I cannot afford to buy my own bag.

Your bag will be put to good use. First it will hold a camera that I will use to take pictures exclusively for Trekmovie.com at the premiere. This will also help me document if, as my critic say, the Hollywood elite shun me. Can I get a photo of me fist bumping with JJ or not? Give me the bag and we will see. Should I get there and no one has on a tie then my tie goes in the bag. The bag will hold my notepad. How else can I write down my impressions of the premier for Trekmovie.com?

After the premiere the bag will remain in service of things Star Trek. I am in charge of computer generated ship model design for the fan based PC game, Star Trek Supremacy. This will become my laptop computer bag. I used this computer in starship design and in recording voice actors for the game. In my hands this bag will serve the Federation for years to come.

78. I AM CAPTAIN KIIIIIIRK! - January 7, 2009

“WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG”

Reason: to maintain the time-line. The “Many Worlds” hypothesis is incorrect. I am the future owner of the bag. I will receive it as a gift in 2285. In 2286, I will travel back to 1986 to get fresh sushi (which is scarce in the 23rd century). Unfortunately, Nobu was expensive in 1986, so I pawned the bag.

Please give me my bag so I can make sure my friend can give it to me in 2285 so I can get some good sushi 23 years ago. Thank you. (That’s 100 words!)

79. Spock89 - January 7, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG:

I am a 19 year old junior in college at Florida State University, who is a huge Trekkie (as well as a Star Wars fan but I digress). I would use the bag to carry my books, school supplies, etc, and to show that there are actually people from my generation who actually like Star Trek and are not afraid to admit it.

80. Spock89 - January 7, 2009

Oops Anthony sorry 4 the double post. The 1st one did not show up until after I posted this one.

81. Sheryl - January 7, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG:
This is my first year at college, and I have yet to meet any other Trek fans. I may even end up going to the movie alone! If I had a sleek bag like this to proclaim my love for Trek to the world (or at least my campus), this crisis may yet be averted.

Oh, and there’s the whole thing about carrying books, too. I’ve been carrying them in one of those fabric grocery bags of late.

82. Irishtrekkie - January 7, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG

I Need that amazing bag for the same reason god needs a starship.
Because i really really really want it ? also it would be handy to have on away mission and to impress young female cadets , when i tell them i got the bag cause i went to starfleet academy.

83. Darryl - January 7, 2009

I need the bag so I can keep the programs and pictures from Trek conventions I’ve attended with my 5 year old daughter, thus far. I’ve been taking her to them since she was 2 (I myself have been going to cons since I was 13, I’m now 37), and have photos of her with Clint Howard, Nichelle Nichols, and George Takei, with more hopefully to come. When she’s older, I’d like to give her all the mementos I’ve saved for her, and to do so in one of these cool bags would add more to the story I’ll have to tell her.

84. K. Kempton - January 7, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG?

When I walk in into the Ares I-X Status Meetings with with this jamming bag, the NASA Rocket Geeks will all wish it was theirs.

Maybe, I’ll even let them touch it.

85. Paul B. - January 7, 2009

I’m just going to wait until we see what the winning reason is, then go back in time so I can use that winning answer first–that’s the Trek way to do a sweepstakes!

Seriously, good luck to all; I don’t need the bag, so I’m hoping the best Trekkie wins.

86. Rob - January 7, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG:

This bag could help me in so many ways. I work with children at an after school program and such I carry a backpack with me to work because I always have copies of pictures , work related info , and its a good in between bag. If I had this bag man would it be really nice because my parents are getting me a laptop so I could use it solely for work related purposes and this bag would not only be perfect for me to keep this laptop in but also to bring along my papers and other work related items to work. So yes if chosen I would use this bag for work and I can finally get rid of my backpack and use this wonderful messenger bag to lug my laptop and papers and I can also show my love of Star Trek to all as an added bonus!

87. Peacekeeper - January 7, 2009

I need this bag for a couple of reasons: First I collect bags. Second when I was younger I purchased a bag at the Federation Trading Post in New York that I used for my school books. It was a green military style shoulder bag with “Property of U.S.S. Enterprise” stenciled on it. Now 30 years later the words have faded, the bag has stains and some of the seams are starting to come out. This messenger bag would be a glorious replacement. I would be able to use it for the next 30 years.
Thank you…

88. T2 - January 7, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG:

I already carry around both a backpack and a laptop bag…unfortunately neither one is Trek-themed. I carry one for books and the other for, well, a laptop. The laptop bag is tearing at the zipper and there is no better replacement than to get a Trek-themed bag. It’s also got my now-favorite version of the delta logo on it. I’d love to use this at college where the movie can use some extra promoting. There are enough students at DePaul University showing school pride…now it’s time for some Trek pride!

89. RedShirtWalking - January 7, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG:

Rule of Acquisition #109–Dignity and an empty sack is worth the sack.

I’m not going to make up a story to get the “sack.” I’ll keep my dignity, I just need the sack which–in Ferengi culture–is apparently more valuable…

Which leads me to another rule: A man is only worth the sum of his possessions.

I’ll have a greater self-worth once I have the bag.

It’s a win/win scenario for all of us, really.

90. EdDR - January 7, 2009

Why I Need The Star Trek Messenger Bag
To eventually carry my new laptop computer, (if and when I get the money for one- OH Wait! I’ll win the Lenovo from Intel) since the kids and my wife hog the desktop. This makes it harder to look at TrekMovie.com and for other cool Star Trek meshes for the computer.

91. EdDR - January 7, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG

So that I can re-write my previous message #90

92. Daniel - January 7, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG

to show my friends that i am nerdier than they think. they already give me flak for liking trek and this would tell them that their criticism is not unfounded. of course, i’d carry my trek pride in the bag…or wear it proudly on the side.

93. Steve - January 7, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG: So that I can store my dilithium crystals in it….. duh!!!!

94. Dave - January 7, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG: My wife and I are expecting our first child, who will very probably be named Miles after Miles O’Brien on DS9. This bag would make a fantastic diaper bag, with lots of character and a story to tell.

We first started spending time together talking about and watching Star Trek (of the DS9/TNG era), and the name (along with the bag, if we get it!) is an homage to that part of our lives, our continued love of Star Trek, and our proud nerd-parent status.

95. Greg - January 7, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG

Say guys. I need a messenger bag period. I need this one because I was a life long Star Trek devotee who from the earliest Internet coverage of this upcoming film was totally unexcited about it. The few spinets and rumors I heard led me to expect the worst. Only upon discovering TrekMovie.com and following you exceptional coverage has my mind been changed. I can’t wait from Star Trek!

96. Gavin - January 7, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG:
Of this messenger bag I can only say this: Of all the bags I have encountered in my travels…. this is the most *choke* ….. human.

97. JR - January 7, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG: So I can have the phrase “TrekMovie.com Lives!” emblazended on the front!

How cool would it be to have my work laptop in this to show off!!! Everyone knows I am the ultimate Trek Geek … why not proudly show it to the world!

100. SFLights - January 7, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG

I’m the one who found the trailer before anyone else, proving that I’m the largest Star Trek fan alive. Basically that’s the only reason you need.

101. Luke Forrester - January 7, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER

I am a government agent about to do deep undercover somewhere outside the US. I am in need of this messenger bag so that I can successful pull off my cover as a contract IT worker. The bag will allow be to blend in well with these geeks of the technology age. If you won’t do it for me, do it for the safety of the world.

102. Brad - January 7, 2009

If I were to win this bag, I would use it for carrying my laptop. But more importantly, I think that people would notice the Star Trek emblem on the side and might ask about it. I think it would be a good opportinuty to educate people about the optimism that Star Trek is really all about. In these difficult times, talking with others about a Star Trek type future gives us all hope that the future will truly be a better place than it is now.

103. MazzNX01 - January 7, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER

I need this bag to hold my computer while I’m visiting strange new worlds. Duh!

104. starshipcaptain - January 7, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG:

Because it’s Star Trek! Need I say more.

105. AdmNaismith - January 7, 2009

I use a messenger-style bag whenever I am out running errands. It esp useful when I am on my bike (about 80% of the time). It would just be way cooler to use this bag instead of the plain beige bag I have now. It would also be a conversation piece, reminding people that Star Trek is still alive and kicking.

106. sebimeyer - January 7, 2009

I’d use it to ward of the ravenous bugblatter beast of Traal in case my towel has a malfunction.

NOT CANNON

108. Jim in St. Louis - January 7, 2009

I currently need a Star Fleet Field Equipment Bag. I would use it to hold and store my Original Series Phaser and Communicator I currently have, and the TOS Tricorder I have on order. Along with all of this classic equipment, I would also store all of the cool STXI merchandise soon to be released. You need a ST Bag to hold ST equipment, right? Oh yes, and of course I will store the Star Trek Lap Top that I am going to win in the bag ;^ )

109. Cenobyte - January 7, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG

I want to ask 7 of 9 (aka ‘seven of fine’) out on a date but I’m not sure she’d be impressed with my ketchup stained TOS captains shirt or plastic Playmates phaser!

… but to ask her while holding a sexy high tech messenger bag like this would obviously give me a leg up on the deal… don’t award me this bag out of pity, do it cause you wanna hook a brother up!

110. Fwise3 - January 7, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG

I am a Trekkie in college!

111. Negotiator - January 7, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG

I need it so that when people ask me where I got such cool bag I can
reply that I got through the most awsome, coolest, hipest, informative, entertaining, fairest, Star Trekkiest site in the whole world wide web. Trekmovie.com!

I will add that it’s ran by the a most handsome, viral, kindest, strongest, manly dude named Anthony Pascale.

For the record, I have never before and never again kissed this much butt.

112. Sid - January 7, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG

So I can destroy it! The star in the logo is misplaced. This is a disaster, they obviously know nothing of the fundamentals of Star Trek.

113. Odkin - January 7, 2009

I need the bag because Dammit, I’m just an old country Messenger, not a Doctor!

(not really a messenger, but I need the bag in order to tell people “TrekMovie.com” whenever they ask me where I got the cool bag! )

114. scooter - January 7, 2009

My wife is in graduate school and I gave her my bag to use. This would make a classy replacement.

117. Gibnerd - January 7, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG

I would love the Trek Messenger bag as my wife & I are having a baby girl this March & I plan on being a stay at home dad. I would use this bag as a daiper/food/toy/overall all things baby bag as I take her out & about. I already got her a baby Trek shirt & have a Delta shied tattoo so she would know that this is her & Daddy’s bag.

118. Nahara - January 7, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG – I would give it to my friend and her husband. They are “uber” fans. I am a major fan, but a closet one – mostly due to my shyness. She and her husband have been slowly bringing me out of that closet. On the way back from a Vegas convention, he brought me a Klingon jersey and I now wear it proudly. lol I would like to do something nice for them ( they would LOVE it).

119. spock34 - January 7, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG

I’m a die hard TOS trekkie since I was 6 years old, oh soo long ago. and the bag looks so cool. My 1st episode i ever saw was return of the archons back in 73 watching it on channel 11 new york. And I have been hooked ever since.

120. Crusade2267 - January 7, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG

A short time ago, I snagged the username NCC1701 on a forum about living in New York. Carrying my stuff to work on the subway in that bag will merely allow me to live up to my username.

121. Mike T - January 7, 2009

Why not auction it off and the proceeds could go for Leukemia research.
Maybe for Children who have cancer?

122. Viking - January 7, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG:

I’m a lead field tech for one of the largest banking institutions in the United States of America. I cover a large part of the south, and my backpack and the cargo pockets of my pants can’t even begin to carry enough of the parts, tools, and software I need to keep you and your money together as one big, happy family.

The global economy depends in large part on my performance, and the Butterfly Effect will eventually reach into your wallet. If I fail, YOU fail. That bag will let us all win in STYLE.

123. TBonz - January 7, 2009

Why I need the messenger bag?

Because I’m a female Star Trek geek and it’s either wear a goofy uniform or carry around a bag with the cool logo to let other Star Trek fans know that I’m one of them!

Besides, I can carry all sorts of cool stuff in it, like a Star Trek DVD set, my new Star Trek Pez collectible set, and several Star Trek books for those times when I’m stuck waiting to get into the doctor’s office.

So yeah, the bag would come in handy. It would accompany me to the three Star Trek conventions to which I’m going this year.

124. noirgwio - January 7, 2009

“WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG” : Well, firstly, I never win anything. I love all five series, especially TOS and ENT, all 10 flicks, and so far each of the six novels I’ve read, which is a world I am new to. I collect Trek trinkets, but only the few I really like, and I actually do really like that bag. It would house my literary supplies, my pens and notepads, folders with incomplete drafts and a plethora of notes. This bag would thus be my own Guardian of Forever, with my mind’s eye as its key.

125. Val Jean - January 7, 2009

WHY THESE COMPETITIONS ARE ALWAYS FOR US RESIDENTS ONLY

126. jim - January 7, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG:

It is most definitely a representation of cool and techy geekiness, I carry this bag, it says I am geeky fan of Star Trek, most likely single, male, who carries around a laptop, PDA, iPOD, and wear bluetooth headset… with this cool, yet techy geeky bag slung around my neck..

I need this bag, PLEASE!!!!

127. CaptainLordBat - January 7, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG

I need this to carry my belongings back and forth to my menial job in a meat department at a local grocery store. My planner to figuire out how my family will live, my battered old cell phone that does not text but does have the communicator chirp when opened, and asorted other things…like the moldy bologna sandwhich I am having for lunch. But for one week a year I need this to transport my copy of a script and assorted belongings to upstate New York to help make the greatest fan endeavour possible….Star Trek Phase II/ New Voyages…..where I can forget my crappy job and make something that will last for generations!

128. John Gill - January 7, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG:

I am clearly one of many who needs this Star Trek Messenger Bag, and not one of the few who could care less, because logic clearly dictates that the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few.

Hey, I am a teacher. My current bag is just in bad shape. The kids call it my man purse. I need something else for them to have a good laugh at.

130. AstroSmurf - January 7, 2009

I need the bag because I am a closet Trekkie and really need to come out and let the world know all about the real me. If I won the bag, I could carry it around to let everyone know that I am out and proud. That cool bag could say everything that I have been needing… wanting… to say for so many years. *sniff*

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG

and explain in 100 words or less why you need the bag and/or what you would use it for or what you would put in the bag.

Okay, I followed the instructions EXACTLY! When do I get my bag?

No, seriously… I’ve already decided to win the Y530 Laptop, so what else would I carry it in?

132. Capt Mike Of The Terran Empire - January 7, 2009

Why I Need The Star Trek Messenger Bag. Because im a capt of the Terran Empire and I need it to carey extra portable Agonisers to punish any and all who disobay my orders.Also to cary with me to see the New Star Trek Movie on May 8th. Long Live The Terran Empire!!!

133. Dierna - January 7, 2009

WHY i NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG:

I really can’t think of a reason. It just looks so danged awesome. Im a 3rd generation trekkie. It’s the perfect bag to take on trips, a perfect overnight bag. Or I could just put my star trek memorabilia in it. Either way that bag totally reeks of awesomeness. :D

134. scott - January 7, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG – To proudly support the idea of being a trekkie in public. For too long have trekkies been ridiculed or scoffed at and not taken seriously. As a professional and role model, I would carry this bag with pride and show my peers and those who look up to me what it means to look forward to a brighter future filled with optimism– not hate. I would show them what it means to be self confident about your interests and have high enough self esteem to carry a Star Trek messenger bag around.

135. Steven - January 7, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG

Because I need a bag to carry my laptop computer around. When traveling around, I’d like to be able to have a good bag to carry it around. The bag I have right now is really not useful for carrying a laptop.

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG…. it’s kind of simple.. I work with the public in sales and I have been making it my mission to spread the gospel of TREK, TREK and MORE TREK, to the masses. And being able to walk into work and whip my laptop out of this bag daily, people won’t help but notice!!! I want to do my part to help make trek “cool” for the masses again!

Top Ten Reasons:
10. To carry all the new action figures
9. So people will know I’m a trekkie

7. A place to put my Spock ears during downtime at conventions
6. Storage for my animated series DVD set
5. A home for stray tribbles
4. To carry dilithium crystals
3. Storage for my animated series laserdiscs (anyone remember these?)
2. It’s the logical thing to have

… And, the number one reason WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG…

1. Two words — totally awesome looking

141. David T. - January 7, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG-

So that I could smuggle TRIBBLES pass the Klingon border….pass the klingon empire, and trade them with Romulans for Romulan Ale.

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG
After travelling from Australia in July 2009 to visit the new Star Trek Experience in Las Vegas I will need the bag to carry all my purchases from the newly stocked Star Trek shop.

145. KenJ - January 7, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG

I’m the Information Technologist at a public library in Michigan and I could certainly use an awesome new Trek messenger bag to store my binder, my flash drives, and my ID badge during my commute. I was just thinking about replacing my old one…

How serendipitous it would be if I were to win!

It would also free up the $40 I’d have to spend on a new messenger bag so that I will be closer to having saved up the money to finally get a Star Trek-themed tattoo.

146. Third Remata'Klan - January 7, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG
Is this a trick question? I need the bag because it’s perfect for displaying my Trek fandom to the world!

147. Paddy - January 7, 2009

i want that bag, but I’m reminded of something a green blooded fella once said, “You may find that having, is not so pleasing a thing as wanting. It is not logical, but it is often true.”

148. Eric Holloway - January 7, 2009

WHY I NEED A STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG

Actually I would give this beautiful bag to this young man who is in a program for homeless famlies that my church sponsors. I gave him my Destiny trilogy and he was happy about that so maybe the bag will make his situation a little easier. After spending time with families that are homeless I can’t see me begging for something like this that I really don’t need. Someone else could probably put their whole belongings in it as they move from church to church, shelter to shelter. That’s what I would do with the bag, I would pass it on a give a little joy and maybe some hope.

149. KANE - January 7, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG:
To put over the head and muffle out those dear Trek friends who repeatedly proclaim it’s not cannon! Oh and I really love the bag!

150. Shaun Bryer - January 7, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG:

At 27, I’ve been a Star Trek fan for years. I currently am sharing my love of trek with two 13 year old boys (twins), who I mentor. I’m helping them develop an appreciation for Trek Canon and have got them very excited about the new movie. They, and their friends, are the next generation of Star Trek fans.

One of them, recently got a new laptop, but does not have a bag to keep it in. This would be the ideal bag for him to keep his laptop, or simply to use at school. I’d love to be able to win one of these bags to bring joy to another.

151. Capttravis - January 7, 2009

WHY I NEED A STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG:

Because my tower of generally unused messenger bags could always be taller.

#145 – I have a Star Trek themed tattoo, and it weirds my wife out. I’d call that a good use of $40 for sure!

152. Captain Otter - January 7, 2009

Why I need a Star Trek messenger bag:

My love for Star Trek drives my wife crazy. In fact, it would almost make up for all the lawn-mowing and pooper-scooping and bug-killing and trash-taking-outing I do.

I daresay that giving me a Trek messenger bag would be a sign of victory and a beacon of hope to hen-pecked men everywhere.

So come on, Anthony, and help me make a stand!

153. Deebo Shanks - January 7, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG

I am a Christian. I do not “need” the bag, but I think it would be cool to carry around with me in order to express the truth that there are many open-minded Christians who believe in IDIC. Many believe that Christians are close-minded, self-righteous, and judgmental. Star Trek teaches tolerance and love for others just as Christ did. I wish to make a statement that all people of all races and religions can live in peace with mutual respect.

154. NoRez - January 7, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG

Because the needs of the one me outweigh the needs of the many. And as I am currently single, it will identify me as one of those rare treasures (according to certain surveys): a woman who loves Star Trek.

And if it doesn’t work, at least I can keep all my girly stuff in it.

155. Doomsponge - January 7, 2009

WHY I NEED A STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG:

Because the needs of the one outweigh the needs of the many.

I am one, you are many. Don’t argue with the logic!

___

(Oh, and I’d just get it sent to a friend in the US then ship it over to the UK. Surely provided we set up a US address we can get it ‘care of’ et up, we can set it up to win. Really, I only entered because nobody had used this one yet!)

(Oh, and US only contests on worldwide websites need banning or something. It’s like that accurset hulu hellhole)

156. Mike McMahon - January 7, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG

This is actually quite a coincendence because I was planning on buying a new bag since my current one is all worn out and has a mighty big tear on the side. I carry all my art supplies in it (sketchbook, pencils, etc.) I’ve been a big Trek fan ever since I was 3 years old and first saw TNG back in 87 and have watched every series and movie since then. I’m a firm believer in the ideology and message that Gene Roddenberry was saying through his work. And at the end of the day, who wouldn’t want to use that bag? It’s awesome! Very sleek and very cool.

157. mattniss - January 7, 2009

Why do I need this bag? If I were to be the proud owner of one of these messenger bags, I would make it my General Order 1 to photograph myself with bag slung over arm in as many world places as possible. It would do some justice to have this bag at my side throughout my travels, proudly proclaiming my love for the greatest science fiction juggernaut in history!

158. Sams I am - January 7, 2009

Why I need the bag?

You never know, I might win the laptop……and if that happens I could use the cool Trek bag to go along with the Badass laptop…..A win/win!!!!!!

159. FAB - January 7, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG
My goal in life is to become a science officer aboard a starship, specializing in biology. I am currently working on my PhD in hopes that there will be starships with open positions by the time I finish. This bag would be perfect for carrying scientific equipment during field missions on strange new worlds. Specific items I would bring include specimen containers, nets, a small micriscope, syringes, forceps, and hopefully a medical tricorder…I’m serious.

160. vanedge - January 7, 2009

i need the bag because my wife hates star trek and so do most of my friends — and i don’t care!
i’d still use the bag in spite of ‘em all!

161. Jorge Luis Sanchez - January 7, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG
I need it to replace my old Oakley bag to carry my new MacBook in style, and show off my Trekkie status.

162. Chris Doll - January 7, 2009

“Why I need the messenger Bag”

I need to carry my laptop around at work in this Star Trek bag. I work in the Microsoft Corporate offices and I’m afraid nobody there has ever heard of Star Trek. They need to know about this movie!

163. spock you rascal you - January 7, 2009

I need this bag badly. I am a 30 year veteran police officer in the Dallas area, and a Trekkie since 1966. All my pals on shift think I am a nerd, I hate football,baseball,hockey,basketball and any other sport you can name. But. I love all things Star Trek. I ask you, does this make me a nerd!!! I need this to compete with all the stupid dallas cryboy bags they bring their civ clothes to work in. I NEED to shout my nerdiness in a silent way. Thanks

164. GilmourD - January 7, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG:
Well, I’m actually already a messenger bag user. I carry all my stuff (invoices for my business, multiple pairs of glasses, a tie for when there is a need, etc.) in it on a daily basis. I’m also unabashedly a Trekkie to the point where my wife asks me if I have other things to talk about sometimes. Fortunately, even though she wouldn’t like the prize, winning wouldn’t ruin my marriage. LOL

165. thecrisper - January 7, 2009

I bike through time. I run across the roofs of cars. I build scarecrows. I challenge evil. Pigeons like me. I defeat crowded rooms. I toil with my humanity. I turn sour milk pure through the will of my mind and body. Mermaids fondle me. I break into seedy motel rooms. I swap at swap meets. I never sleep and when I do sleep I sleep I don’t dream. I leap onto running horses. Sushi chefs call me “shokunin”. If all of this is too hard to believe, just believe this: I’ve never had use of a Star Trek bag.

166. Benjamin - January 7, 2009

My little sister thinks I couldn’t be any geekier than I am. Give me that messenger bag, and I’ll prove her wrong.

168. Devon Richards - January 7, 2009

I want that bag because it’s really NOW, you dig. I totally reach that bag. I grok that bag. Man, I’d pay 10,000 quatloos for that bag. I brave the reign of Kodos for that bag. I’d risk message bouy ejection at yellow alert for that bag. I swing of that mighty bag and the god Apollo would fade away. People would see me sporting that bag, and all scream, “Festival!!” and go wild in the streets.
And through all that, I’d be cool as Spock playing some bassy vibes of the lyre – why? Because I had that bag.

169. magnumpc - January 7, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG

– To do magic tricks where I pour Saurian Brandy into the bag and it disappears when inverted,
– To wear as a helmet during sandstorms of Ceti Alpha V (also makes an effective shield against ear pests)
– To carry an ancient, Earth flag from the nation state of United States (in case I find a planet that has an identical flag and will grant me special dispensation if I have one)
– To catch (and store) Denevan space pancakes (yum!)

170. Andrew F. - January 7, 2009

Why I need the bag…
I remember it like yesterday, I was 6 years old and had just got the TMP happy meal from McDonalds. The toy was a plastic blueish see-through wrist communicator. I put it on after gobbling down the hamburger fries & drink and was off to the skating rink with my buddies. By the time I got home, I realized the wrist communicator had slipped off my wrist and was lost forever. The one childhood tie to that exciting time when Star Trek first hit the big screen was gone FOREVER!!! With the new movie coming out, I have those same feelings again. IF I WIN THIS BAG, I WON’T LOOSE IT AT THE SKATING RINK!!!!!!

171. Josh Morgan - January 7, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG

I’ve been looking for some new Star Trek thing to carry with me, and this is perfect. I love messenger bags, and they are what I carry with me the most. This one is professional, too, so I can use it at work (I’m completing my internship for my doctorate in psychology) and proudly display my lifelong Trek passion (I wore a Star Trek uniform for my third grade pictures! :) ). Plus, the price is perfect for a grad student budget. So I’d carry my computer, articles, and food (I don’t have a replicator yet).

172. Capt. Jax - January 7, 2009

“WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG”

I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG BECAUSE IT WOULD BE A GREAT WAY TO CARRY MY LAPTOP, MOVIE CAMERA, AND STILL CAMERA.

BUT MAINLY TO SHOW MY SUPPORT OF THE NEW MOVIE!!

SOME MAY THINK ME THE ULTIMATE TREK NERD, BUT I’VE ALREADY MADE MY OWN T-SHIRTS WITH THE NEW ENTERPRISE AND THE NEW CREW ON THEM. THE NEW BLACK AND WHITE POSTER OF THE CREW MADE A GREAT LOOKING T-SHIRT!!!

SEE YOU ALL AT THE PREMIERE OPENING DAY. AND I WILL BE WEARING ONE OF MY “TEE’s”

173. Isaac - January 7, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG

Because I’m in my senior year of high school, soon I will be graduating and going on to college. The bag I use now is falling a part and I can’t find any Trek messenger bags at my local stores. I would use the bag as I would any other bag. To hold my laptop, books, other essential college class supplies I may require in. People would see the bag and realize that I am a Trek fan, I’m fine with this.I’ve had a communicator pin on my bag at one time, and people thought it was cool…in a retro ‘showing my personality and that I like the show’ kind of way. That is why I need the Star Trek messenger bag.

174. Jim Pierce - January 7, 2009

I would use the bag to carry my laptop to Starbucks so I can look both important and geeky at the same time as I pretend to work over their wi-fi connection

175. jeffery wright - January 7, 2009

a star trek man-purse?

say, why arent they plastering that new connie all over those laptops?

looks like the kelvin is more popular by default…

176. Ryan - January 7, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG…
If I win this bag, I’m going to go out and buy a shiny new MacBook to put in it. So I need it to keep my new MacBook nice, clean and protected while traveling around in style.

177. Steve - January 7, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG

It looks very cool, and it would be nice to have one of these bags, especially a Star Trek one. Make it so.

178. Diana Diaz - January 7, 2009

Why I Need The Star Trek Messenger Bag.
I am A nurse, and I always need a bag to carry items for my job. I would proudly use this bag to display my love for Star Trek and my commitment for future generations. Star Trek is more than “to go where no man has gone before”,it helps to carry a message to help others where few will or can.

179. Exocomp 4 - January 7, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG

I need it because I’d like to have something nice for a change. Don’t have much to my name now, but what I do have would be nice inside this bag.

Thankies :-D

180. Stacey Arcangel - January 7, 2009

Why I need the Star Trek Messenger Bag!!!!!
I need the bag because though I don’t look like the typical Trek Geek I proudly display my love of Star Trek by showing off my collection of accessories, which include; earrings, pins, shirts, hats, etc. — I’m only missing the bag! In addition I love to dress in costume at the conventions… And no matter what anyone says… Star trek continues to kick Butt! Live Long & Prosper Baby! Live Long!

181. Spock with a Crowbar - January 7, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG…

…because my girlfriend just got the coolest Star Wars hoodie for Christmas (it zips ALL the way up and looks like a stormtrooper) and She wears it around the house waving her iPhone lightsaber saying things like, “want to watch a movie? How about something action-packed! No? Okay, put in a Star Trek Movie…” or “hey, is this the one where the old space people save the whales? It’s kind of like ‘Cocoon’ right?”

I’m left totally emasculated as both a male and a fan. I won’t be whole without a better collectible to prove my dedication to Trek. Mine is the superior fandom!

182. Dipling - January 7, 2009

US only?

:-(

183. Chance - January 7, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG:

Because although people wouldn’t understand it’s importance, every time I opened it I would think of the show that I shared with my father and grandfather.

184. TREKKIE369 - January 7, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG: I just started a non-profit organization with my mom, and am about to run off to collage. Star Trek is my childhood hero. I would absolutely LOVE that bag, and use it to advertise Trek everywhere.

May the best Trekkies get them.

Live Long & Prosper Star Trek

185. RaymondJ - January 7, 2009

Why I need the Star Trek messenger bag: because I plan to attend the opening of the new Trek film in Starfleet attire, and the bag can hold the uniform until I am ready to wear it. It will then hold my street clothing while I am giddy with excitement watching our bold heroes in their new adventures on the silver screen! As a Star Trek fan since day one in 1966, this is one of the coolest Trek items to come along in many years. I would be honored to have this, and carry it proudly in my earthly daily adventures.

186. Jeff - January 7, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG
I need something to carry stuff in.

187. Lucas - January 7, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG
I’m Captain Kirk. I’M CAPTAIN KIRK!

188. Stanky McFibberich - January 7, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG

So I can hurl into it while watching the movie.

189. Jordan - January 7, 2009

Why I need the Star Trek messenger bag:
because I have devoted 20 of my 27 years of life to Star Trek. It’s my world. My inspiration. My passion. My teacher. My friend. I would use the messenger bag to carry books to school (I’m a university student) which follows the Star Trek philosophy of bettering oneself through learning, organizing and inspiring communities, and using knowledge to better humanity. Star Trek has made me a better student not only in the classroom, but in life. So the bag, to me, is a metaphor. A metaphor of my pursuit in life: to aspire to become more than I am now. A better person (see Star Trek: Nemesis.)

190. Will - January 7, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG

Because it’s the closest I’ll ever get to one of those plastic duffel bag things from Next Generation. Finally I’d have a bag that was both hip AND reflective of my nerdiness!

191. Charles Davenport - January 7, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG

I’m a conservative person when it comes to Star Trek. I just don’t buy anything and everything Trek. What things I do have would be real world I items. I’ve got Polo’s, I have my photo of me on the bridge of the Enterprise, Communicators badges and my Starfleet Academy Certificate of completion on the wall, done tactfully. When I seen the bag I knew it would fit right in with my conservative Trek life style. Besides my Macbook with it’s UFP wallpaper would wonderful in it.

192. Thomas - January 7, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG:

I don’t. It just would be nice to have, that’s all.

If I can’t get it, I would like to throw my support behind # 148 Eric Holloway
or # 153, Deebo Shanks. Thanks.

193. Odkin - January 7, 2009

This isn’t my job to explain, but it seems like Anthony has to do it every time there is a contest of some kind.

The reason US website contests are almost always only open to US residents is because different countries have different laws and Anthony and Intel and whoever else who might be liable cannot possibly monitor every single countries laws about contests and lotteries and chance drawings. They can’t know your age restrictions, your disclosure requirements, your privacy laws, and a million other caveats that may be out there.

It has nothing to do with postage or xenophobia or greedy Americans. Sorry!

194. chris - January 7, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG:

because my friends keep making fun of me for being the first with updates on all things trek, and now i’ve resorted to just flaunting my trek-session, so i wouldnt mind having the bag and just pointing at the logo.

195. Aaron R - January 7, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG — I am a teacher who was unable to go to the con where they originally had them because teachers don’t make very much. I am dedicated to my students though and I would use the bag to replace my old work laptop bag which is falling apart but I haven’t been able to replace yet. Lastly I know my science fiction and fantasy club that I run for kids after school where I enable children to view Star Trek for the first time would go bonkers if Mr. R. came in with such a sweet bag. —

On a side note it’s to bad we lost The Experience here in Vegas because the kids really loved our field trip there last year that I paid for out of pocket.

196. M-BETA - January 7, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG

Because the needs of the one (me) outwiegh the needs of the many (everyone else)!

197. M-BETA - January 7, 2009

Damn. Just saw someone beat me to it. Oh well. Fair play.

198. monger - January 7, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG

Two reasons:

1. I love all things Trek. Without Trek, life would lose all meaning.

2. I really need a new man-purse.

199. Butters - January 8, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG:

I have to have something awesome to pack my survival kit in for the camping in front of the theater the night before the new movie opens!

200. trekboy_82 - January 8, 2009

ummmmm…… because star trek rules!!!

I want to walk into a room and let my “geek” hang out and tell people I love star trek and they are jelouse they don’t have a bag as kewl as mine

201. Chris - January 8, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG

Same reason God needed a starship…

202. S. John Ross - January 8, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG

Because my current bag left me stranded on Ceti Alpha V, and this bag, would at long last, be my revenge.

203. THOR - January 8, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG

I’ve been a devoted fan since a 6th grade English teacher played “Elementary, My Dear Data” as her introduction to Shakespeare. Now, after finishing a six-year military enlistment, I’ll be going back to school this Autumn and I can’t think of anything more apropos to carry around my schoolbooks, papers, laptop, and Star Trek CCG cards in than a Trek-emblazoned messenger bag. I won’t be typically school-aged when I go back, but over many years I’ve found that Star Trek fandom is a terrific equalizer across ages and backgrounds.

204. ensignHarris - January 8, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG
To carry my tools neccesary for me to expand my knowlege of the universe.

205. thorsten - January 8, 2009

I need the bag because Archers beagle peed on my Timbuk2, which was the reason I gave the dog to Scotty in the first place… ahh, never mind ;))

206. Woulfe - January 8, 2009

- Why I need The Stat Trek Messenger Bag – in 100 words or less –

Bag ?
Bag and bag, what is bag ?
It is container is it not ?
Wait…. Star…. Trek…. Bag…. Contains….
It’s not possible….

Sorry, I just had to quote that episode for my entry here.

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG

So I’ve got one my son won’t swipe. ;)

208. Denes House - January 8, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG – for real? My laptop bag is worn through, and the straps have broken off. I’m the pastor of a small church and can’t afford to buy a new one. And I love Star Trek! When I was a kid, my family would open the fold-out couch and stay up all night, watching Trek marathons on the UHF station in town. I handmade communicators out of candy boxes and tin foil, and sewed velcro to my belts so I could pretend to be Captain Kirk. I have seen Wrath of Khan probably 40 times, and I cry when Spock dies, every time. Those three chimed notes at the end of the new Star Trek trailer give me chills every time I hear them, and the thought of owning something connected to the new movie is awesome. So, please consider me.

209. Becka - January 8, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG

Because my husband is a huge fan, we are both excited about the new movie this year. I want to give him this as a gift to show my love and support of his love of Star Trek for all these years. Trying to be a good wife. ^_^

210. HiddenVorlon - January 8, 2009

I need the bag because I left my previous one behind on Sigma Iotia. In all the commotion, I think I left it in Bela’s office. Do you think that’s a big deal?

211. manfred martens - January 8, 2009

I need this bag to boldly go where no startrek fan has gone before ;)) smile*:)

212. manfred martens - January 8, 2009

and i have today my 43th birthday :)

213. falcon - January 8, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG:

I’ve been a Star Trek fan since it premiered on Sept. 8, 1966 (a week prior to its advertised premiere, if you’ve seen the old NBC promos on YouTube), and endure constant heckling from my wife and daughters. That’s OK. The messenger bag would allow me to get some use out of the heckling. Plus, the backpack I carry my laptop in is worn and old, and a real hassle taking through airport security. And perhaps I can finally bring out the inner geek in my youngest daughter who is a big Zack Quinto fan (and embarassed to admit she’ll be seeing Star Trek with me when it opens on May 9).

And it’s just too darn cool!

214. Tim Bertolet - January 8, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG? Because it would impress my 5 year old and my 3 year old daughters who are starting to recite the opening to Star Trek and ask when we can watch the DVDs… I’m always bring books to and from my office so it be a handy way to carry books while showing off my inner Trek geek.

215. Arnaldo - January 8, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG

I need this bag so I can carry around all of the reasons this movie is indeed canon, so when someone doubts its canonical value I can just whip out a reason why they’re wrong right out of this bag. It helps and promotes the movie. We all win and I win a bag.

216. Eric Steiner - January 8, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG – I need it to prove to the world that I am the biggest geek around…

217. paustin - January 8, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG
I need the Star Trek messenger bag for work as my current microsoft bag is slowly falling apart. I also need it because i’m a long time TOS fan and this will help me look cool and hip……what goes around comes around…look at me ma…i’m hip again

218. Dave W - January 8, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG:
I need the bag because in order to get the comic con to actually have a chance to receive the bag, I would have had to spend 700+ dollars US on a plane ticket and another 300 for a hotel room because all the good Star Trek Stuff happens on the west coast. You never hear about how good the East Coast Conventions are! That and I think they look cool!

219. steve o. - January 8, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG:

Need something to put our whole universe into, because the simple, plain brown box it was in last time got sat on.

220. Jeff M - January 8, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG

I have some friends going thru tough times and who are fanatical Trek fans. It would be a great boost to their morale to be able to give them the bag and make their lives a little brighter

Beam me up Scotty, this is a Must Have for any Trekker !

223. Sallah - January 8, 2009

Why I need the Star Trek Messemger Bag-

We have a baby boy who is still in diapers. My wife bought a Winnie the Pooh bag for me to carry diapers and stuff for the baby in when we go out. It’s very feminine. Since she already bought it I can’t justify buying a different one…..but if I were to WIN a different bag, she really couldn’t complain. Please don’t make me carry a Winnie the Pooh bag. Please.

224. Steve C - January 8, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG:
When people see this bag they will be reminded of the fact that I am a fan of Star Trek. That will start a conversation where I can remind them of all that is good about Star Trek. The message of hope in the future, the sense of adventure, of optimism. Hopefully those who grew up with Star Trek will be brought back to their youth and that sense of anything is possible and those who are about to discover Star Trek will ask and learn.

225. Not backin' down - January 8, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG

because my ex-wife took all my trek things when she left.

226. Nathan D - January 8, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG –

I have just been turned by my friends to the Trek side. I’m a new fan and dont know much about trek. I’m always going to my buds houses and they show me there massive star trek collections. I think it would be cool to start out my own collection with something as usefull as this bag. I love the symbol on the bag and being a newbie I think that it will be a great begining in my involvment with Star Trek.

227. Capt. of the USS Anduril - January 8, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG: Because I need someplace to put my new Star Trek movie items and my laptop. Besides that, I need something awesome.

228. Alex B. - January 8, 2009

229. NL-NaeZ - January 8, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG:

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG –

…to put the bag on Abrams.

231. Perris Baxter - January 8, 2009

Why I Need The Star Trek Messenger Bag. Hope–to all the patients I care for every day. I work for a large California HMO and I am continually surprised at how many patients I see in my department (both young and old) who are passionate Star Trek fans. I can think of no better symbol–literally–on the black bag that I would love to have on display in my exam room that would work its own medical magic by calming their minds and hearts knowing that their doctor in training loves the best show ever made.

232. Adam Shepherdson - January 8, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG:

Because I read this site every single day.. I am the ultimate star trek fan, and I know I don’t live in the states (CANADA), but I need a new bag for my laptop for work and I would LOVE to show my clients some trek style!!!

233. Randy D - January 8, 2009

I will be having arthroscopic surgery on my knee on the 23rd of January, and the messenger bag would be very helpful to carry my rehab materials in.

235. Matt Thomas - January 8, 2009

I need the Star Trek messenger bag because I’m an avid Star Trek fan and I walk with my laptop to my computer programming job to help the environment

236. Jtrekker - January 8, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG – So I can tote around my laptop at work, at home, on vacation, etc. and clarify that:
1. Yes – Star Trek IS cool.
2. Yes – The new movie WILL BE awesome.
3. And, yes – I’m a bit of a nerd, and quite proud of it!

Oh, and it would just be cool to have something everybody else doesn’t…

237. starfleetmom - January 8, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG: So I can give it to my bestest friend, who is a Trek Nerd like me. We didn’t win one at Comic Con, but we tried real hard. I ‘m getting a new laptop, so I’d give her my old one in the bag for her birthday. Since she works for the state and is in danger of losing her job or at least getting IOUs in leiu of paychecks, she won’t be able to buy one of her own.

238. Aaron - January 8, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG – As a proud Star Trek Fan, this is just what I need to tote my laptop around to the various engineering meetings I attend. This will instill jealousy in my colleagues, who can only dream of a sweet Star Trek bag of their own!

239. THX-1138 - January 8, 2009

WHY I NEED TO WIN THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG:

Because if you know me, you know that this has been a tough friggin’ year. My wife’s grandfather died in March. My wife was diagnosed with a rare type of cancer in April. And my wife’s father passed away in December.

She’s as great a fan of Star Trek as I and I could give her something that we both could enjoy.

240. Jess J. - January 8, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG:

1) So I can hug it and squeeze it and call it George
2) I spend more time with Star Trek than I do with my girlfriend
3) So my friends can burn with envy
4) My current messenger bag sucks

241. Larry - January 8, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG:

1) So I can be the coolest Trekker in the call center

2) Because my Window Vista Expert messenger bag is getting a bit worn

3) My netbook needs a new & more Trek-tastic home

242. Daryl - January 8, 2009

“WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG”
Well, the answer is simple. I need it to put my original Star Trek memorabilia in, stuff I’ve had since 1967 or 68. What better to put my Trek Treasures in?

243. KC Shafsky - January 8, 2009

“WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG”
Cause I need a place to hold my overflowing enthusiasm for the new movie until may rolls around and my 1979 Star Trek TMP Lunchbox & Thermos just ain’t cutting it anymore!!!!!!!

244. D - January 8, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG

It would be great to have a Trek bag for my laptop! I’m always taking it to work with me, but I haven’t bought a case yet….this would be perfect. I live on the 4th floor, no elevator, and I always have a handful of stuff to take upstairs with me. The bag would be handy and stylish!

245. Kobyashy Maru - January 8, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG
I am a High School Technology Teacher, as well as a devoted Star Trek fan, I have Star Trek themed posters in my Lab, Enterprise Blueprints behind my desk, several Star Trek related projects (Example, my Mechanical Drafting Midterm will be to draw a orthographic of the star ship I provide them with), and even play First Contact at the end of the year with an assignment to write out their feelings about integration of humans and machines in the modern world, and if we can ever take it too far (Borg). The kids and faculty know me around the building as “The Star Trek Guy”, and I would like this bag as a way to show off my fandom and devotion where ever I go – inside the school and out. This way, I can interest people who may not even know Star Trek exists by having students ask “Hey, what does that mean on your bag”, and get them involved/interested in something that has inspired me throughout my life.

246. vorta23492392932939230 - January 8, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG

Because I have been living in the closet as a Star Trek fan for too long, ashamed of my deep deep love for all shows, books, and films, and as part of our species growth towards a Roddenberry-esque future where humans have transcended their petty egoic fears and desires and evolved to a more self-possessed and less insecure emotional character, I am personally engaged in a process of accepting every part of myself, no matter what cultural prejudice there may or may not be, and in proudly displaying this Star Trek bag everywhere I walk on the streets of new york (where hipster messenger bags abound) I will be a living, walking example of that kind of bold self-acceptance and peace with oneself that will be an ESSENTIAL requirement for every human on our planet if we are to heal from the wounds of war and interpersonal and inter-tribal violence (which yes, does include teasing a person for liking Star Trek), thereby leading by example a process that will usher humanity as a whole into the strange new world of a healed collective psyche, one necessary for Earth to unite, and for humans to explore the galaxy in peace as depicted in the Great Bird’s original vision.

247. Bob - January 8, 2009

Simply put…to impress THE WOMEN!!!!!!!!

249. Brad - January 8, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG

As I navigate my way through life’s “away missions” the Star Trek Messenger Bag would certainly help to provide the proper sense of perspective on things. It would also serve to give said “away missions” the proper sense of style.

250. CoolHandMelo - January 8, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG: Motivation, cause I moved from LA, back home to Miami, and I don’t have a job. So this would help me get my butt in gear so I can get a new job, get money, and get out of my parents house!

251. Steve II - January 8, 2009

Okay, this is simple. I want to be able to carry my dog around like Paris Hilton does…but in THAT bag. Oh, and here is a photo of my dog.

252. Kristen Johnson - January 8, 2009

I’d use this bag on a daily basis for pretty much anything and everything. It would completely replace my purse as my accessory of choice, and we all know how important a purse is to a woman. Yes, that’s right, I’m a woman, I’m a die-hard ST:TOS fan, and I’m not in the least bit shy about proclaiming it with a sharp logo on a very sweet-looking bag.

253. Paul - January 8, 2009

I would give it to my dad, for all of those times he let me borrow his many, many star trek books.

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG: I would give it to my dad, for all of those times he let me borrow his many, many star trek books.

255. The Angry Klingon - January 8, 2009

I need the bag because what kind of Star Trek Messenger am I without a Star Trek Messenger Bag?
I feel ill prepared to do my job without the bag…a Star Trek messenger without his/her bag is like …wellllll….Spock without his Tricorder….McCoy without his scanner…..Scotty without his Scotch…Kirk without a beautiful ‘woman of the week’…it should not be allowed to continue.
There can be no peace in our time without that bag….

256. ~~TARA~~ - January 8, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG

Four years ago (right after my son was born) I gained the courage to take my son and leave my abusive husband. Consequentially I lost my Star Trek collection I had as a kid (scripts, toys, books, movies, etc). I’ve been trying to rebuild my collection, but as a single parent I don’t really have much to saved. This bag will add to my collection, but also be useful in transporting my laptop and work related stuff to and from the office.

257. FSL - January 8, 2009

I’d wear it every day to promote the movie. It’s cool. It looks great with my clothes. And it’ll be a great conversation starter. Not to mention I can carry my laptop in it occasionally on long trips.

Too bad I don’t live in US…

258. Michael - January 8, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG

I will be joining the Peace Corps and moving to a country that does not have adequate electricity. I will not be able to watch any star trek for the two years I will be serving overseas. It would be great to show my trekkieness and have a connection with home during the two years i will be away. I could possibly take a star trek book or two if i had this bag!

259. I am not Herbert - January 8, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG

I need the bag because it KICKS ASS with the STAR TREK logo! (and I’m a cyclist who needs a messenger bag!)

I would use it for carrying all of my essentials, especially my cell phone w/ cool Star Trek ring tones; and to proudly show the world my LOVE for STAR TREK!!

I would put my DST phaser / communicator / tricorder in the bag for “away missions”, and also my KHAAANNNN!!!!! screaming Kirk action figure and my Starfleet Technical Manual. =D

In addition to wearing it everywhere, I would also wear it to the Star Trek premiere, using it to sneak store bought candy in. ;-)

260. Ryan - January 8, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG …
I work in the Technology industry and with the new movie coming out I need to represent !
Plus it would be handy to keep my Laptop and Tricorder easily accessible.

261. I am not Herbert - January 8, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG

I need the bag for when I am camped out in front of the theater waiting for the premiere, so that I can make it into a dress like Sugar did when I get the “Survivor” funk.

262. AdamTrek - January 8, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG

To stick my head in it to get away from all the eye burning whining and criticisms from canonistas of this yet to be released highly anticipated movie.

Also to hold my stuff.

263. Stance Neal - January 8, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG

Because I’m a dreamer and writer of all the possibilities that might be out there in the inky blackness of space.
The bag is a reminder to all who view it that the Universe is bigger than we give it credit for.
It suggests outer space isn’t the end of this incarnated experience, but the beginning. That we are all explorers at heart boldly going forward to embrace all the good that there is in the world and beyond.
It’s an everyday reminder that we should never stop dreaming of what could be and that our future really is now.

264. Clinton - January 8, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG …

I’ll be hosting a big party for the premier of “Star Trek” and I’m looking for all the cool Trek items (classic & Star Trek 11) I can lay my hands on. Of course, my party budget is “zero,” so the Messenger Bag fits right in.

Many interesting stories here. Good luck, one and all!

265. fizzben - January 8, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG

To keep my Star Trek undies in when I go on away missions out of state.

266. Steven Chappell - January 8, 2009

It is simply logical that I win this bag. I own every movie. Every TV series on DVD, including the Animated Series. I drove 1,829 miles — one way — to see Star Trek: The Experience before it closed. My son thinks the proper greeting when he meets someone is “Live Long and Prosper.”

This bag would serve as the home for my communicator (cell phone), data padd (iPod touch) and my portable LCARS (laptop), as well as my hypospray (epi-pen for allergies).

Plus, it would make my office mate, who claims she is a bigger Star Trek fan than I am, extremely jealous.

267. Surfing Spock - January 8, 2009

As many of you know, when I go surfing, I always dress as Spock. Well, I learned he hard way that communicators, tricorders and phasers (1 & 2) are all highly susceptible the salt water damage. I desperately need one of these bags to stow my landing party gear while I am making first contact with the waves.

268. steve - January 8, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG

I have been a Star Trek fan since I was a kid (starting with TNG…sorry, child of the 80s), and I recently bought a nice new Lenovo laptop which I will be bringing to college with me next semester. It would only be fitting to carry everything around campus with this bag!

269. Tony - January 8, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG

To carry all my tribbles around

270. Odo - January 8, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG….. So I won’t have to carry that ungainly bucket around with me any more. When I can no longer hold my shape, the Lenovo messenger bag looks like a comfy, stylish place to glop into for a bit of rest.

271. Denise de Arman - January 8, 2009

Man, Anthony, I do not envy you having to decide who gets the bags. There are many good entries here. Good luck, everyone.

272. Mike - January 8, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG

Not only does it hold a laptop, it’s a great place to put your phaser, tricorder, and communicator, landing party-style!

273. Larry - January 8, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG

My transporter is down for warranty work (it morphed my Worf).

274. John Alexander - January 8, 2009

I have traveled from the future via the Guardian on the Edge of Forever. I need a messenger bag such as this to blend in with my surroundings.

275. Chris Heer - January 8, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG

Because twenty-five years ago, some annoying Val told me to bag my face and now, lo these many years later, I have finally found an appropriate bag to use.

276. Chris L - January 8, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG

Our first baby is coming in February and what would make a better geek diaper bag than a Star Trek Messenger Bag! Gotta get the little started off right.

277. Nick Baker - January 8, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG

Simple, to show my friends at school I am a Trekkie and proud of it!

278. Jack - January 8, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG

Because my old messenger bag is old and getting very worn out. Being a college student and having just been laid off, I can’t really afford to buy a new one. And that Star Trek bag is probably the coolest thing I’ve ever seen. I hope I win one in this giveaway or in the other contest.

279. Pearl - January 8, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG

Over the past few years I have needed a reminder of being logical and looking for hope. Star Trek showed us that whoever we are or where we may be, as long as we keep going forth and striving to better ourselves, the real adventure is us. I would like the messenger bag to take it with me for all my adventures and show that I believe the message of Star Trek.

To be honest, I would use it for school and work. I would take it everywhere on Earth and though space and time. I would keep my weapons of wit and knowledge in the bag. Added with a phaser.

280. thecrisper - January 8, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG

I bike through time. I run across the roofs of cars. I build scarecrows. I challenge evil. Pigeons like me. I defeat crowded rooms. I toil with my humanity. I turn sour milk pure through the will of my mind and body. Mermaids fondle me. I break into seedy motel rooms. I swap at swap meets. I never sleep and when I do sleep I sleep I don’t dream. I leap onto running horses. Sushi chefs call me “shokunin”. If all of this is too hard to believe, just believe this: I’ve never had use of a Star Trek bag.

281. Xai - January 8, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG

Well… I really don’t NEED it… I just want it.
It will make some people smile as they see it after they recognize the chevron. My wife will roll her eyes and give me that half smile, quietly letting me know that she thinks a 48 year old guy shouldn’t have a Star Trek purse. My adult children will quietly covet their dad’s winings, but emulate their mother… in front of her at least.

I be stylin’!

282. Scott Thornton - January 8, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG.

I am a huge fan of Star Trek, and I have been since 1966 when I was 10 years old. I have been on disability since I had my forth surgery from a broken neck, so everytime I go to visit my Mother, I have to back everything up. I want to display that I am a major fan of Star Trek! I have a room in my basement called Ten Forward. It has a bar and over 200 model ships and figures in it. I also have an autographed uniform shirt from Leonard Nimoy. Last year, between 2 of my surgeries, a group of my friends from cyber world sent me a Spock teddy bear, and a beautiful digital camera, I am now able to take pics of my “toys” and display them!!!! I need the messenger bag in order to carry my stuff from home to EVERYWHERE I go!!! Thank you very much!!!! Scott Thornton

283. JGC - January 8, 2009

“WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG”
So I can give it to my brother as a decent gift…he’s a bigger Trek fan – and deserves it more than me.

284. Jirah Cox - January 8, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG – It appears to the perfect carrying container for my portable Tribble hatchery. How much more appropriate could that be?

285. Patrick Lee - January 8, 2009

I need this Star Trek bag because if you don’t, I swear I’ll shoot this cute white furry puppy. Oh, you think I’m bluffing? Don’t try me, buster. I’m as serious as a heart attack. No, really. Actually, I’m just kidding: There is no gun, there’s no white, furry puppy. Well, actually there is a puppy. Actually, she’s not really a puppy; she’s a really old Boston terrier named Berkeley. But I would NEVER, EVER shoot her. I love her! Would you like a picture of her? I’ll send you one if you give me THAT DAMN BAG!!!

286. BrianS - January 8, 2009

“WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG” – Because I am on a humanitarian mission to repopulate the galaxy with Tribbles (Damn those Klingons and their genocidal war!) As such, I need something to hide them in during planetary transport. This messenger bag would be the perfect thing!

Won’t you do your part and HELP SAVE THE TRIBBLES?!

287. Trekmaster - January 8, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG

288. Keith - January 8, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG

Several reasons – right now, I’m toting the laptop around in a neoprene sleeve, with accessories in a small backpack – it works, but yours would be so much cooler. Messenger bags are the best IMHO, and since I can’t run out and buy one with the STAR TREK logo, it’d be real nice to just win one. I’m sure there’d even be tribble room left over…

289. Trekmaster - January 8, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG:

As a reporter for a news paper (www.thedigitalcourier.com) I have to carry my laptop, camera and various other items with me out to cover meetings and cover breaking news.
So, not only do I need a messenger bag (messenger bag? since when did we stop calling them booksacks or backpacks?) to carry my gear for my job, but I also need it to prove a sometimes forgotten point to some of my fellow fans.
The press does still exist in the 24th century. There’s that one part of “Star Trek: Generations” where the media guys are covering the launch of the Enterprise-B and Jake Sisko’s work as a reporter in the Dominion War. But other than that, people often forget that even in the future, we reporters still work hard for little reward or recognition. So, yeah, if I had this to carry my gear, my friends and fellow fans would hopefully remember that it is a worthy profession even in Star Trek.

Please?

290. Collin - January 8, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG

Because i am a lifelong Trek fan and i need a bag to carry laptop and books for my film college classes. And also it looks really cool.

291. Mirthquake - January 8, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG

Will it make me cooler? No.

Will it hold my laptop, graphics pad and sketchbooks? Potentially.

Will my daughter “acquire” it for her schoolbooks? Almost definitely.

Will it help spread the TrekMovie message to the wilds of (gulp) Kansas? You betcha, Red Rider.

292. Martyn Charron - January 8, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG:

So I can take my laptop to the school I teach at and spread the news about the movie and also to share the understanding of new technology for the future.

293. Justin Maisonet - January 8, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG

Why do I need the ST messenger bag?? Because I’m going to win the Lenovo contest; it’s that simple!! I really cannot fathom why everyone else is entering it, because they have no chance. Now do not mistake these rantings for delusions of grandeur, I know with every fiber of my being that I will win the laptop and when I do, I’m going to need a kick-ass bag to put it in and to match the laptop itself. DONE!! GAME OVER!!

294. daddy in a strange land - January 8, 2009

It’d be the perfect daddy diaper bag for our new baby whose arrival is imminent. :)

295. Marc Weber - January 8, 2009

I need to Boldly go where no bag has gone before with it. Also to carry my trek stuff that I need in life with me.

296. Mason - January 8, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG – I need this bag because it will show the other nerds I work with at Apple that it’s not just an Apple logo that gives you geek cred. Sometimes you have to show your Federation affiliation as well.

297. Brian Smith - January 8, 2009

I need the Star Trek Messenger Bag to update my image…my Space:1999 bag went out of style ten years ago!

298. SupremeDalekOnTheBridge - January 8, 2009

Hmph.

299. Jovan - January 8, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG

It would make the perfect accompaniment for me at the premiere of the movie to hold promotional magazines, licenced novels, and a laptop (with Star Trek episodes, movies, and games on it) to entertain me and my friends while we wait in the long line for the movie to begin. On top of that, bragging rights!

300. Mark - January 8, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG

I am a military dude serving in the nations capital, and I take the METRO (subway) to work everyday. My briefcase, which I use to ferry important papers and my lunch back and forth, recently broke a latch, forcing me to use a paper bag. Just think of the national secrets (and the lunch) I could carry with this awesome bag.

301. Christopher Valin - January 8, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG:

I’m an underpaid and overworked teacher and I need a new briefcase to carry my work stuff and papers to grade to and from school (the old one has a broken strap that I literally stapled back together). I’m going to have to buy a new one when I can afford it, but I can’t right now. Also, it would advertise Star Trek to the students at my school and help usher in a whole new generation of fans to keep the franchise going for many years to come.

302. Paul - January 8, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG: To sell it on e-bay so I have money to pay the rent and feed kids in times of recession.

Nah, sorry, ’twas a lame joke on behalf of american citizens. :P

303. Terry L. Markhardt - January 8, 2009

I have been and still am the greatest fan of star trek that I know. I have been watching since the first set of reruns aired back in 1973. I currently collect all the series seasons as well as what memorbilia I can afford, since some of it is quite pricy. I hope you choose me for this great honor to carry my laptop in the bag of the future.

304. Brian - January 8, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG: To carry materials I need for work everyday and proudly display that I am a fan of Star Trek.

305. Bryce Erwin - January 8, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG

Very simply – to pick up chicks.

306. Austin - January 8, 2009

I would love to use this bag to carry snacks and some Star Trek novels (like Federation and Prime Directive, both by J & G Reeves-Stevens) while I wait in line for the new Star Trek movie!!!

307. Benjamin Schollnick - January 8, 2009

I need the messenger bag, so that I can spread the message about how good (or bad) the movie is. As well as it would allow me to smuggle my daughter into the movie, along with myself & my wife…

308. I am not Herbert - January 8, 2009

297. Brian Smith: Dude! Space: 1999! =D

Remember “I’d rather fight than switch” (from ST to S99)?

309. Robin the Bird - January 8, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG: I have a tribble problem and messenger bags are the perfect way to sneak tribbles unnoticed into other people’s homes and “spread the love”. I assume the bag, being a Star Trek-themed bag, is equipped with some sort of illicit cloaking device or perhaps a transporter to help me out.

310. James - January 8, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG

I want to show off my love for Star Trek and replace the “24” Messenger Bag I have (which is getting kinda ratty).

311. Michael Royer - January 8, 2009

“…305. Bryce Erwin

Wooooooooooow. That’s kind of sad. xP
…But, ya know, I’d probably be interested in a guy simply for the fact that he was (presumably) a Star Trek fan.
There’s not a lot of High Schoolers (sophomores, no less!) who are Trekkies!

314. John Adams - January 8, 2009

Hey Guys…I’d love to have the Star Trek messenger bag. It would be invaluable to my daily grind. I would use it for my change of clothes between my day job and night job, and it would also help in keeping my everyday tasks organized (keys, cellphone, bills, books, etc). Most of all though…looking stylish and promoting my all-time favorite franchise along the way. I hope you pick me…I would definitely use it 24-7!! Live Long and Prosper…John

315. Christine - January 8, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG:

Easy: I’m a Trekkie. Not many 15-year-old girls will admit that. I’d use it to haul around all my Star Trek fanfiction, fanart, and those little “Tribbles” that come from old fur material and needles and thread… It would be both practical and awesome! Besides, I could take it everywhere. What better way to display my love of all things Star Trek?

Star Trek forever!

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG: I met my other half due to the wonder of Star Trek. (No, not at a con!) We were both at a very mainstream event, neither of us showing any sign that we were geeky. He made an oblique reference to dilithium crystals. I pounced on it, and we talked Trek all night. We’ve been together ever since! I want to give this bag to him to show off my big geek love for him. It would be very romantic!

318. Mike Ingbritson - January 8, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG

It would be a stylish way to transport my essential clothing as well as technical and entertainment materials.

319. Steve - January 8, 2009

Why do I need the bag? To complete give in to all the geekiness I’ve got trapped inside. I work in college athletics, the antithesis of anything geek, so I just want to see the look on the faces of the people I have to work with. I’d just throw in my laptop, netbook, and smartphone into the bag.

Not to mention that my father-in-law would be extremely jealous.

320. Joe Snyder - January 8, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG

I am in dire need of a new bag for my wife’s old laptop. My wife has cancer and we spend all our money keeping her healthy…. a new bag would be nice for her to use as she travels to the doctors and such, she uses the laptop to stay in touch, track her progress, etc… ( oh.. and she LOVES SPOCK!!!)

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG…

Because I haven’t been beaten up since high school and am long overdue. Carrying this bag on the street pretty much assures I’ll be pelted with spit-balls and have my ass whooped just like 30 years ago.

(posted tongue-in-cheek but also pretty true to my high school life as ‘Spock’. My yearbook is the proof)

324. Glen Sheppard - January 8, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG: Because I already wear black on the job so why not be extra stylish with a Star Trek Messenger Bag to complete the look?

325. Captain Robau - January 8, 2009

326. ThingsAndContainers - January 8, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG – My life is so emotionally empty that I am forced to fill the emptiness with things, and other things in which to put said things. Things such as bags. Bags with Star Trek logos on them.

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG

They used to say, If man could fly, he’d have wings. But he did fly. He discovered he had to.

You’re right in pointing out the enormous danger potential in any contest with life and intelligence and prizes as fantastically advanced as this. But I must point out that the possibilities, the potential for knowledge and advancement and looking nerdy is equally great.

Risk. Risk is our business. That’s what this contest is all about. That’s why we’re entering her! You may dissent without prejudice.

Do I hear a negative vote?

328. Saerie - January 8, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG – Because my brother in law, who has spent the last 4 months of his life watching every Trek episode, movie, etc in order from beginning to end, fixes my computer for free all the time, and I’d love to surprise him with this and make his whole year. Plus, he needs something to cart around all of his computer fixing parts that gives him tons of geek cred. Because geek cred is the best kind of cred there is.

329. KJTrek - January 8, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG – I need the messenger bag because myself and about a dozen students from my school district have formed a “Green Team” to give the environment a break, and in the process save our schools (which have a $2 million deficit) save some money; and I need something this cool to keep all of our papers and materials organized!

Plus, I need somewhere to stash all of my Romulan Ale!

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG

My cool steel taupe Patagonia messenger bag holds my old TOS T43 just fine, but my work laptop (A T61 widescreen running LCARS, erm, RHEL 5.2) doesn’t fit. I need a 23rd century bag for my laptop. Please. Don’t leave me using my uncool Targus bag for much longer.

332. Juan - January 8, 2009

Why I need the Star Trek Messenger bag? I love Star Trek in everyone of its incantations and being able to obtain something as unique and original as this messenger bag would make me very happy. I can assured you that I would treasure the bag and would use it proudly every day. Lastly I want to be able to represent and let everyonethat sees the messenger bag how much I love Star Trek.

333. James - January 8, 2009

334. Trish - January 8, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG

I don’t “need” it.
Being one of the many who is suffering in this economy, I don’t need it. I do need rent, food and bill money.
However, I would like very much to HAVE it. It would make me happy to carry my things in it and I would hopefully use it to carry my things to my next job, when I find it.
I’m not poor (yet) or sick, but it would be an extremely neat thing to have and proudly show my Trek-love! =)

335. Scott Hedrick - January 8, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG:

My name is Scott. I already have a reputation as a miracle worker when it comes to the computers of my friends and neighbors, so they call me “Scotty”. This messenger bag would help me channel the spirit of James Doohan and make be a better handyman.

336. Fritz - January 8, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG
I need this bag because my current shoulder bag is old. The inner vinyl lining has begun peeling away like sun-burned skin. Plus it has a coffee stain from from when a restaurant lady tripped and dropped her cup.

I would use the bad to carry my daily accessories during my commute from home to work.

I would put in the bag, items such as my cell phone, cough drops, allergy pills, wallet, keys, sketch-book, pens, tissues, crucifix, sunglasses and my wrist support sports-wrap.

1. There are no bloody pockets on these snazzy new uniforms.

2. So I can be the Jack Bauer of Space.

So I can rob a bank.

350. Live Long and Proper (sorry, my dad was a preacher, not a Vulcan) - January 8, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG

What better way to tote my Shat-signed copy of “Star Trek Memories”, or my Star Trek Hallmark(TM) Christmas ornaments? What if I find the other person that has HD-DVD and wants to borrow my TOS-Season 1 HD-DVD’s? I will need to carry the set to them somehow! (Waiting for Seasons 2/3 to come out in Blu-Ray!) What about my very own “U-Star” Video TOS Episode shot in Las Vegas while wearing Star Trek Uniform?

Finally: I don’t want to be the only one at the next Star Trek Convention that doesn’t have one!

351. (K)night - January 8, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG

Because it will go perfectly with the Lenovo IdeaPad Y530 laptop that I am going to be winning soon. Also, I can’t afford to buy the bag because I am saving all my money so that I can see the new Star Trek movie 1,000 times in the theaters.

352. Marc - January 8, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG

Because I need a place for both my Lenovo laptop and a roll of 4-ply toilet paper. How else am I supposed to “Boldy Go” on a starship without restrooms?

353. Mark T. - January 8, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG

I’ll be starting back to college this fall and that bag will look great carrying my physics and astronomy textbooks! Trek has always been my inspiration!

354. MommyWoman - January 8, 2009

Why I Need the Star Trek Messenger Bag:

I am a 44 year old mom with two teenagers who always seem to require some odd gadget or other while we’re out and about. Whether it be WD-40 for that sticky locker door, duct tape for the weather stripping falling off the passenger door, that weird little toothpick from my Swiss Army Knife, or the always necessary needle-nosed pliers to pluck something inserted a little to far into someone’s nose, I don’t care if it WAS for a bet!

I am also a tremendous Star Trek geek which bugs my teens to no end. Therefore, them having to admit the need of something from ‘Mom’s Weird Handbag’ would be sweet beyond words.

355. Gibnerd - January 8, 2009

#117-
also. the baby’s due date is March 26, which is also Leonard Nimoy’s birthday. Good company.

356. Brett Hargrove - January 8, 2009

Why I need the bag…?
First I am a 50 year old trekker that goes back to the original series, an an uber Star Trek fan, and most importantly my Oklahoma Sooners just lost the national championship game, and their 5th straight BCS game and I need something to pull me out of my depression!!!
Also, I could use it to smuggle phasers into Romulus my next visit!

357. JPANIMATOR - January 8, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG – Because it is my DESTINY – In the future I already HAVE WON the bag – so if I do NOT win the bag in this timeline, everything on Earth could be threatened by our altering the future for the WORSE!

Think of the FUTURE – Do not delay, do not deny the Earth her proper future.

358. Lori - January 9, 2009

Hello,
I would like to have the Star Trek messenger bag so that I can give it as a special thank you gift to the doctor that saved my life last year. She is a big Star Trek fan. It always amuses me to go in the treatment room with her autographed photo of Captain Kirk on the wall.

359. Tom Starks - January 9, 2009

“WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG” is a fascinating question, one I’d be proud to express the answer to via mind-meld, because using words to express our innermost thoughts is so 21st Century. However, since I must conform to the limitations of the space-time continuum, I’ll answer by saying that I need the Star Trek messenger bag to carry my external Chakra and thus must be unique, strong, and durable, just like its namesake.

360. Paul Hayes - January 9, 2009

“WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG”, I am the last person in my tech shop with a Lenovo laptop, everyone else switched to dell and I want to show them that Lenovo is better than that.
Thank you

I need it to carry my action figures.

362. Kenneth Of Borg - January 9, 2009

POST MY PHOTOS OF YOUR BAG SPORTED BY TREK STARS AT THE PREMIERE.

I bid on eBay for premiere tickets and was criticized. “He will be shunned by the Hollywood elite.” Let’s see if I am. Give me the bag to photograph with the elite. You get the photos.

Next the bag holds my laptop that is used to work on the game Star Trek Supremacy. The laptop builds game starship models and records voice actors. Trek bag goes to conventions. Trekmovie.com gets more photos.

As Pike said, “…or you feel like you were meant for something better, something special.”

363. Brian - January 9, 2009

“WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG” Well, aside from being a Trek fan from way back, I am also a teacher and we use Lenovo PC’s where I work. It would be a nice tie-in to IBM in the classroom as well as a great way to show support for the film and Trek. I use my experiences on Phase II to show my students that they can succeed in anything if they believe enough and work hard.
Additionally, I would love to show up on the Phase II set and brag to Carlos since I saw he entered too. LOL

364. John Smith - January 9, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG…. Well, as it is my current man purse does not command the respect for both sexes that all things sci-fi(especially Star Trek) tend to do. Yes sir, once I get this bag, I shall truly be the one living long and prospering as the ladies swoon and the guys bow with envy.

365. Emanuel - January 9, 2009

I am rediscovering my love of Star Trek and a fashionable bag like that could go a long way getting me back on track.

366. Manny - January 9, 2009

“WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG”

because it would be an easy way to show off my Trek love.

367. Jay - January 9, 2009

Because it would be an awesome gift to my friend who thinks Star Wars is better than Star Trek. I love to throw things in his face, ha!

368. Brad Rusk - January 9, 2009

I would want the bag because it would be a great item to show off at the Sci Fi conventions and make the Star Wars fans wishing they had a bag to represent their precious trilogies

370. Betty Shoemaker - January 9, 2009

Love to have this bag, to carry all my sons junk in and even his star trek toys

371. Amy - January 9, 2009

Why I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG

I have a two year old daugther named Kathryn Elizabeth (Named after Captian Janeway, Naturally!).

A girl with a Captian’s name, needs a cool star trek bag to carry her toys around in when she visits Grandma and Grandpa.

372. Jacob Klein - January 9, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG –

As an elementary school teacher I plan to use this laptop bag to inspire our children (who’s grandchildren may just be manning the USS Enterprise, Voyager and Kelvins of the future) to stay optimistic about our possible futures; to strive to live up to the human ideals that are so indicative of the UFP and her allies; to live long lives –and prosper.

373. Jason Smith - January 9, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG-

As a Communications Officer for a Fire Department I could use the bag to help carry the many essential things I need to perform my job. I could also use it to help carry the many thing I need when I go to convetions such as sketches, items bought, and books to be signed. Finally I would be the envy of many Star Trek fans at work, bragging rights has alot of perks at my job :)

374. Rafael - January 9, 2009

I need a bag to hold my movie tickets..

375. James - January 9, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG

i have so many books to carry and people make fun of me for having a star trek picture saftey pinned to my current bag. It is a picture that i printed off the computer, it has to be changed every so often because moisture does not get along with paper.

376. Shirley Hodge - January 9, 2009

I need this bag to prove to the world that there are those of us who have been Trekkies from day one before there were any actual Trekkies. I have loved them all but especially Captain Kirk and Jon Luc Picard. Yummy yummy. The encompass many of my 73 year old dreams. When they tried to cancel Star Trek I knew that it would not go away, just couldn’t, wouldn’t, didn’t.

377. James - January 9, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG

to add to my other comment …. my girlfriend’s dad will think i’m so cool and will most likely like me more. lol

378. Stefan Benoit - January 9, 2009

As an educator, I make it my mission to enlighten my students, not just to my given subject, but to the magic of Trek. Additionally, since every teacher at our school carries identical school- issued Lenovo laptops with identical carrying cases, I would be able to discern my bag from from the hoards of mirror-imaged cases at my school,while at the same time promoting Trek to all I come into contact with.

379. Jordan - January 9, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG

So I can keep my laptop safe from the other IT people around me. I figure a bag like that is bound to have shields of some sort.

380. James Whitbord - January 9, 2009

381. E.K - January 9, 2009

“WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG”

I need it because it’ll match the awesome TOS trek shirt I have. Plus you don’t get to see too many 27 y/o females running around with a Star Trek bag, now do you? ; D

382. Jersey_Devil - January 9, 2009

I need the bag because the Borg are coming and it will protect the precious memories I will lose when they assimilate me.

383. MICHAEL - January 9, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG

I’ll be picking up a laptop for college very soon. I can use the bag to help the effort of getting a lot of my friends to see the movie (most are interested!). Then, after the movie is a tremendous success, I can go off to Penn State and use it to attract other people who loves the movie!

389. Darth Bunky - January 9, 2009

Why I should win: Looks like a great wine tote! I’ll make sure to fully stock it before going to the theater in May!

“Risk is our business” – Captain Kirk

Perfect for this little lawyer!

392. Steven Kirk - January 9, 2009

I need this bag because I need something cool to contain my excitement till this movie comes out!!!

393. Robert Steffen - January 9, 2009

Why I need the Star Trek Messenger Bag is to store my Star Trek collectables that I have collected over the years. This will give them added protection. Thanks

394. Juli - January 9, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STARE TREK MESSENGER BAG

I’ve been looking for a cool bag to carry my laptop in and this would be perfect. I’m a 16 year old college student going to an early entrance college, and perhaps carrying this bag will help me meet some of the closet trekkies on campus.

395. Decker Unit - January 9, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG!

It would look great with my red TOS uniform shirt. And when I beam down with the landing party…. Oh wait….

396. Jim Britton - January 9, 2009

The bag is totally awesome and I could use it as a briefcase to carry to the office. My co-workers know I love Trek so having this would be so cool and I could even put my laptop in it :)

397. sherlockfreak - January 9, 2009

“WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG”

I need the bag to carry around my laptop and books for this, my final semester of college. I am graduating May 9th–I need this bag on campus to help me live out the philosophy of IDIC. All of my friends know I love Star Trek, and people who saw me on Halloween–but if I can outwardly express my love of Trek, I can connect with everyone around me, whether they be fans or not, and contribute my differences to theirs. I will be helping my university achieve its goal of being more diverse. IDIC symbolizes Trek to me.

398. david - January 9, 2009

So that i could carry it around and proudly show the Star Trek Logo :)

399. Dfinn - January 10, 2009

Why do I need this bag?

because everyone else on here already has WAAAAY too much stuff proclaiming their trekkiness and their geekhood — I don’t have ANYthing of substance.

– My communicator keychain bit the dust years ago.
– my combadge pin lost its lustre after too many years on my winter coat.
– I tried to craft my own phaser from balsawood and tinfoil, but that failed miserably, and
– my plans for building a life-size shuttlecraft in the backyard have been put on permanent hiatus by my wife — at least until I can finish painting the den.

I need SOMETHING that proclaims to the world my trekkiness!

400. Fletch007 - January 10, 2009

Why I need the Star Trek Messenger Bag…

Unlike some people on this posting, I would actually use it for a real purpose. My job includes going to many companies and conducting training. I have to carry books, folders, tests, and other training material. With this bag, people would ask questions about it, maybe people who are not familiar with Star Trek, then I could spread the word. By the way, my work laptop has a wallpaper from Star Trek and people ask about it when I am booting up at a customer facility. So, I know this bag would help, not only carrying my training stuff, but also to spread the word.

401. Carolyn G - January 10, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG – because I want to look cool. I love this bag.

402. Allen B - January 10, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG:

1. I drive my family nuts with my constant life-lessons gleaned from Star Trek episodes – a messenger bag would only make it that much more irritating and very cool!

2. I got a laptop bag at my new job for my laptop, but it sucks!! Everyone will gasp in awe at a Star Trek bag.

3. Can there ever be enough Star Trek gear?

403. Mike - January 10, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG:

I need the bag to give to my fiance. She’s the most beautiful trekker I know and even has a tattoo of the Klingon Empire’s crest. We’re getting married in May and this would be the best wedding present short of an actual movie quality batt’leth.

404. Mae Behling - January 10, 2009

This would work great for my brand new gaming laptop…and leave no doubt as to who was the most chic geek in the house!

405. Brian Kenney - January 10, 2009

I would like to win the bag to bug my wife, who say’s I am a total geek

406. spanishviolet - January 10, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG

I just got my first laptop, and with this bag I could carry it around showing my love of star trek off to the world! It would be perfect for taking to conventions.

407. Ewei Chao - January 11, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG

In all honesty, I need this bag to carry my laptop and other related accessories in it. I would put Star Trek pins on it in a fashion that it would be the Star Fleet symbol. My laptop accessories would have to go in it: spare battery, AC power adapter, ethernet cable, etc. My phasor would also have to be always on hand… set to stun of course. With this bag I plan to travel around the world (and galaxy) with it and my laptop.

408. JWM - January 11, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG

I have a ratty, over-used messenger bag for carrying all of my extra items to and from work. I need a new one. Instead of buying it, I would love to be able to tell everyone I won it and it has to do with the new Star Trek movie.

409. Mark - January 11, 2009

I need this bag so I can place the contents into it that will be required for when I break into NASA and reconfigure their super top secret MIDAS array to emit a phased tachyon pulse at a Class B itinerant pulsar, producing enough gravimetric energy to create an articial quantum singularity, which will in turn allow me to contact the USS Voyager…

410. Mitch Edwards - January 11, 2009

I need the bag to carry my stuff. I ride a bike to work 15 miles each way, and this would be a great bag to to use.

Bonk! Bonk! On the head!

412. Christopher Harris - January 11, 2009

“WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG” To boldly go and take to the opening day screening of the new movie, in order to show my extra support for the franchise in general, and to carry my extra Apple hardware around. Besides, if you’re a Mac, you’re most likely a Trekker as well.

413. Star Trek - January 11, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG
Because I need a messenger bag since I don’t have one. Moreover, I like that design with the logo. I would use it as a casual bag, for example, when I’m travelling.

414. Jeff Bassett - January 11, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG as I have just started classes at the University of Toledo and need a great way to haul around my books for classes. As well be inspired for what the future holds while using this on campus.

415. Rachel Chapman - January 11, 2009

Under 100 words:

Trekdom is at risk of extinction, and my students don’t know the Star Trek legacy. It is my duty to show them to go where no one has gone before. These days, kids are in danger of the collective thought perpetuated by people like Britney and Paris. They are at risk of assimilation; is resistance futile?

Who will help them overcome the temporal and spatial anomalies of life and demonstrate the mantra “live long and prosper?” I can be the Guinan, of their generation.

This is my continuing mission; I am the messenger. I need that bag!

416. Elsie Brockett - January 11, 2009

Why I need the Star Trek Messenger Bag…

There seems to be a magic spirit associated with the Star Trek legends…to go and seek and find adventure.

Only the future knows what this messenger bag will hold…and we must go back to the future to know the answer.

417. Kenny - January 12, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG

Honestly, because it’s becomming a real pain having to carry my documents to work in grocery bags that rip and fall apart. This messenger bag would really help me out.

418. Annie G - January 12, 2009

Because I am the ultimate geek girl and how better can I show the world than this bag!

I NEED TO BOLDLY GO WHERE NO MAN HAS GONE BEFORE

I’m a girl geek (honest, there are some girls on the internet!) that works for a video game company. All my bosses are trekkies (like myself), and if I had this bag I could maybe get noticed and get a promotion!

Please, my future career could depend on this bag!!!

426. Bosko. - January 13, 2009

I have been a trek fan since the age of eight, when I use to watch the TOS reruns in syndication after school. I was nerd in grammar school and got picked on. Trek inspired me to pursue interests in science and technology and I’m currently a PC/MAC sysadmin. And as I grew up, I had a couple bar fights reminiscent of scotty vs the klingons. :) Plus I never win anything. So I have no expectations and would incredibly surprised if I won. :)

427. Alexandra - January 13, 2009

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG will be to show people what kind of a fan I am of the movie – and a conversation starter for those who have no idea a new movie is coming out.

428. Mark - January 13, 2009

To put stuff in… really…

429. Bill - January 13, 2009

I could use the bag just because it’s pretty freaking cool. Could put all kinds of stuff in it whether it be Star Trek related or otherwise and like other people have said if you are seen out and about carrying it around people are bound to ask you questions about where you got it from then you can tell them that you got it from trekmovie.com and bam, instant advertising for this website, lol.

You wouldn’t even have to mention the fact that you won it from a contest, they’d visit anyhow thinking they could buy one.

430. Julie Donahue - January 13, 2009

Why I need this bag…my hubby is the utlimate Star Trek geek. Not only did he go to Star Trek the Experience (twice!) in Vegas, he has the pictures of us in Star Fleet uniforms framed over his desk.

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG

I work with the developmentally disabled as a youth job coach, my desk is filled with mini mates and other trek and stuff every morning I drink from my Starfleet mug. All of my students know I am a huge fan and I often reference trek in my day to day. I have to go from work site to work site because I have several kids in my case load and my laptop case is really no good anymore. My job can be hard sometimes and Trek always makes me feel better. The case would be a help to me.

434. Zoey - January 14, 2009

sweet bag. racing season is about to start up. I would use the bag as my track bag – for when I make those quick flights to different NASCAR Tracks to work the races

435. kathy pease - January 14, 2009

I’m restarting a chapter of the greatest Star Trek fan club- the International Federation of Trekkers- & would love to have this to carry all of the chapter’s paperwork in, such as crew files & organizing the papers for the charities we’ll be helping in our community. The bag’s authentic look would help prove to charities that we’re serious about helping them! As a bonus, I build Star Trek model kits during lunch at work & could carry my supplies & parts back & forth!

438. Peggy Gorman - January 14, 2009
