    (I’m a regular patient at a particular clinic due to a lasting disease. I’m going into a procedure that requires anesthesia; the anesthesiologist is asking me several questions.)

    Anesthesiologist: “…and last, are you familiar with Star Trek?”

    Me: “Yes, I am.”

    Anesthesiologist: “The gas we’re about to give you is similar to the Borg. Resistance is Futile!”

    (They proceed to put the mask on me. I show the Vulcan salute. And as I’m drifting off, he salutes back.)

    Anesthesiologist: “Live long and prosper.”

    (I was glad to have been taken care of by a fellow geek!)
