Cops, charity, goofiness: This is why Star Trek will never die

So the Eagan, Minn., police department took a dip off frigid Crystal Lake Beach for the annual Polar Plunge fundraiser help out the Minnesota Special Olympics—and wore TOS uniforms to do it.

Let's get this straight: Cops wore '60s Star Trek uniforms (and not bad looks, from the photo). They did it for charity. They did it in freezing water. And their news photos got plastered all over the country, much less the region, for wearing Star Trek uniforms. In a freezing lake. For charity.

Don't tell me this franchise is dying. Or depending on one single movie to "keep it alive."

Looks like it can still make a big splash in a small town.
