Star Trek, Las Vegas

It's always nice to see celebrities that you liked as you were growing up.  In Las Vegas, I went to a Star Trek 'do', a wonderful evening meal at the Rio Hotel in their Voodoo Lounge, right on top of the hotel/casino.  There was a terrific view.

Here  is a picture of me alongside a 'Star Trek: the Next Generation' insignia ice sculpture. 

Also below is a photo of George Takei (Sulu) and Walter Koenig (Chekhov) from classic 'Star Trek'.  They were standing in a dark area, sorry about that.  I had to photograph real fast.

 It's funny to think that classic  Trek aired over 45 years ago and that 'heroes' get old, too.  Both these older gentlemen were gracious and friendly.   

At the bottom is a photo of Kate Mulgrew (Captain Janeway from "Star Trek: the Next Generation"), and that show is now 25 years old.

I always vowed I would never say the words (like my mother did), "Well, in my day, we did ......."  But unfortunately, the phrase does slip out occasionally.  I also find myself reminiscing more than I really want to.   'Forgive me, young'uns.....
