Happened to have a chance to watch Star Trek TNG - First Contact last night.

Patrick Stewart (PS) playing Jean-Luc Picard captain was being pursued by the Borg inside the Enterprise, he runs into the holideck and programs in a 20's bar scene. PS ends up turning off the holidec safety protocols (where no living creature can be harmed) and then seeks a THOMPSON that is part of the holidec program. PS ends up dispatching a couple Borg with a few bursts from our favorite weapon.

I liked it.

I remember another scene from the first Star Trek series were they were using Thompsons as well.

I saw that also. Whips it out of a violin case on a table with a "L" drum.

Has anyone else read any of Stephen Hunter's novels?
The fictional novels cover 3 generations of the Swagger Family,
whose male members are all involved in either law enforcement
or the military.
In the 2000 novel "Hot Springs" Earl Swagger, a WWII medal
of honor winner just home from the Marines, takes on the
task of cleaning up the criminal elements in the wide open
town of 1946 Hot Springs, Arkansas - with the help
of some of his friends and their trusty Thompsons.
It's a great read; Steven Hunter is a real gun nut [I have met him]
and gets the facts right when writing about guns.
He even references Tracie Hill's book in his acknowledgements.
Don't miss it!
