Someone already made that reference.

It's also been suggested (I forget by whom) that we are already pushing 
the limits of credibility, at least in the eyes of prospective 
grant-making organizations, by having the Trekkie joke in our name/logo 
at all. The organization name/logo is not going to change at this point, 
but I am convinced that we should not delve any further into Trek-ness 
with it. It gets a tad TOO nerdy at that point.

I'm increasingly confident that we should just hang a big VCF logo as 
our sign and leave it at that. InfoAge visitors may wonder: what is the 
VCF space? Is it a museum, warehouse, office, workshop, event center, or 
something else? Well, let them come inside and see. :)
