Today at 10 a.m. Pacific time, the Las Vegas Monorail will be invaded by Klingons, Borg, Ferengi, Romulans, and Andorians. These aliens will continue to ride the monorail five days a week through December in order to promote Star Trek: The Experience at the Las Vegas Hilton.

12 aliens from Star Trek will appear in all today, three to speak to the media and nine to ride the Star Trek Monorail alongside Las Vegas commuters. "It is an unprecedented honor to welcome this prestigious delegation to Earth," said Curtis Myles, president and CEO of the Las Vegas Monorail Company. "We intend to openly share our public transit technologies with them and to communicate with them as necessary during their three month mission."
