If you're a Star Trek: The Next Generation fan, the reference isn't lost on you. If you're not a Trekkie, then you may have glanced at that sign and thought perhaps dark forces have taken control of the Boothbay Region Community School District sign. Good news, dark forces have not. Also, we're happy to report that Borg had nothing to do with the making of this sign.
