Starstruck Weekend

In about 61 hours, I will be enjoying a freedom from work that I have been anticipating for three months. At 11:00am central on Friday, June 18, 20004, Trek Expo begins in Tulsa, OK. Trek Expo is a yearly pilgrimage for me. During the Expo, I take hundreds of pictures of celebrities, listen to behind-the-scenes stories about Star Trek and my other favorite Sci-Fi shows, and collect autographs.

In past years, I've seen James Doohan, William Shatner, Leonard Nimoy, Armin Shimerman, Keving Sorbo, Majel Barrett Roddenberry, Amanda Tapping, Laura Bertram, Connor Trinneer, Michael Dorn, Walter Koenig, Kenny Baker, and Richard Herd.

I've also had the opportunity to meet and speak to Garret Wang (that's my cell phone he's talking on), Adam West, Kier Dullea and Gary Lockwood, Teryl Rothery, Chris Demetral, Dirk Benedict, Keith Hamilton Cobb, Vaughn Armstrong, Brent Stait, Herb Jefferson, Jr., Robin Curtis, Scott MacDonald, and, of course, Wil Wheaton.

This year, I'm looking forward to seeing Brent Spiner, Michael Shanks, John Billingsly, Ron Perlman, Ronny Cox, Marc Alaimo, Casey Biggs, Jeffrey Combs, and Vaughn Armstrong (again).

Be on the lookout for audio posts...
