We’ve all seen news stories about criminals, vandals, or a group of kids who not only did something illegal, but were stupid enough to film themselves doing it. That’s never a good idea, because as we know in this day and age, nothing stays secret for long. The real geniuses out there post the videos online, you know, because they’re super smart. Those are the ones who are always the most shocked to get caught. Most of the time you’re glad these dumbasses filmed themselves, if only because it makes us feel good to laugh at morons. This new footage that has come to light, however, will make you glad these outlaws recorded themselves, not because of some smug sense of superiority, but because it’s totally awesome. What these Star Trek fans did in 1988 was break into the set of The Next Generation and film themselves din the process.
On the night of March 10, 1988, at least two rabid Trek fans found their way onto the TNG set on the Paramount Studios lot after hours. Talk about kids in a candy store. Haven’t we all fantasized about wandering around the sets for one of our favorite shows or movies, twisting knobs, sitting in chairs, knocking over a sickbay bed?
