Star Trek Cited by Texas Supreme Court? *eyebrow arches*

Texas: my new favorite state in the Union.

The Texas Supreme Court has cited Mr. Spock in their opinion in Robinson v. Crown Cork and Seal. The quotation (taken from dialogue in Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan) is in reference to Texans’ “distrust of intrusive government and a belief that police power is justified only by urgency, not expediency.”

This effectively makes Spock a legal authority for interpreting the Texas Constitution.

Fascinating.
