Trekkies

Over the weekend, Ed and I went to a Star Trek convention....I know, I can feel you rolling your eyes, but we go because we love sci fi, but we also love to people watch.  Below are some of the things I captured at the convention.  (it was held at the same place as the horror convention, but it was on a much smaller scale).  Apparently a lot of the cast from Star Trek the Next Generation were there, but we only managed to spot a couple of the cast members.

 This is my favorite part of the convention....capturing folks who get dressed up!

Yes folks....Klingons walk among us!

LeVar Burton?  

Oh wait...there he is!  

Brent Spiner...aka Data from Next Generation.

This guy played the original Captain in the first Star Trek Series.  He played Captain Pike in the pilot episode of Star Trek...before Captain Kirk.  

Um....I think the beard is a dead giveaway.

Toys for Trekkies

These guys were from some Sci Fi radio station.

Wait a sec...is this guy picking his nose????

This was very small compared to the Monster Con we went to back in March.  Still we had fun seeing some celebrities and poking fun at some of the folks who get all dressed up.

When I was in my mid-20s, I made a model replica of the Starship Enterprise and read endless books about Star Trek (the original). I don't judge anyone.

Looks fun!

The ship models were super cool. Ed has several models at home, but on a much smaller scale than the ones we saw at the convention. I've always been a huge fan of the original Star Trek and the Next Generation. I read that Patrick Stewart and Jonathan Frakes were in attendance, but we somehow missed them:( I always had a crush on Jonathan. Even though I do poke fun at the folks who get all dressed up, they do add to the excitement of the convention and make it more fun to attend. Plus, I could never have the nerve to dress up myself so I have to admire their gutsiness.
