Last week we kicked off a TrekMovie contest to win a couple of Star Trek messenger bags, courtesy of Intel and Lenovo, and there were quite a few entries. Find out who won below. Also, we want to remind you all that the deadline to enter the Lenovo laptop contest ends tonight at midnight (Pacific).
Hundreds entered – only two can win
The response to the TrekMovie contest giving away two Lenovo/Intel Star Trek messenger bags was greater than expected. We have sifted through the hundreds of reaons why people felt they should get the new bag, and selected two.
Because Captian Robau wills it! Plus we use Lenovo systems at my office.

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!

So congrats to Dan and Rachel. It was a difficult decision, but Dan’s was pithy and tied to the new movie, and Rachel’s story of bringing Trek to her students was inspirational. We wish we had hundreds of bags to give out to all those who entered, and thanks to all who participated. Remember if you enter the enter the Lenovo laptop contest you could also win their second prize of this messenger bag (and you don’t even need to give them a reason).
