First. like the bag

Actually.. Just sell me the bag!!!

# 2 …”just sell me the bag”…

Ya me too…

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

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.

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

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

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

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.

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.

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!

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.’

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.

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!

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.

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 :)

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!

The Orignal Next Generation Deep Space Voyager Enterprise

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!

It’s just too damn cool!

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG

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

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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

“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.

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.

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!

“WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG”

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!)

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

RTF!

“WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG”

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

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.

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

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!

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

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.

WHY I NEED THE STAR TREK MESSENGER BAG

Because I never win anything.

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.

Enterprise's helmsman

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.
