Finding my inner trekkie

Last weekend wasn’t the typical weekend at home: kids sports, work, etc.. Instead, I went to the San Francisco Star Trek convention to get in touch with my inner trekkie. This was  my first time and I had a blast.

The highlights included:

  • Meeting Walter Koenig (Chekov) and Denise Crosby (Tasha Yar)
  • Telling Brent Spiner (Data)  that my  “lovely wife” was actually my teenage daughter
  • George Takei (Sulu) talking about the internment of Japanese Americans during WW2 and gay rights issues. Also, in response to an excellent question about the post 9/11 treatment of Muslim Americans he drew parallels with WW2 internment of Japanese Americans.
  • LeVar Burton (Geordie Laforge) talking about Roots and Reading Rainbow.
  • Getting my photo taken with four members of the STNG cast
  • Discovering that one other member of the Oakland JUG is also a trekkie
  • Sharing the excitement with my kids
