I went to a trek convention once.  No, I didn't dress up.  No, I can't speak Klingon.  But it was a good time.  People have so much passion for trek that it intrigued me.  I saw Patrick Stewart speak to a crowd.  Someone asked him "Actors often need to be inspired by something to create tears on-the-spot.  What was your inspiration for the tear you shed in episode #### in season ## when you were converted to Locutious"  (I'm probably spelling things wrong).  Stewart was so damned classy... he said "Inspiration?  It was just in the script, so I did it."  and the guy responded "if you can shed tears on command, can you do it for us now?" and all these trekkies were so eager with excitement.  Classy Stewart responded "Sir, I don't think you could afford to see me cry." 

hahahaha loved it!

William Shatner spoke at the one I attended and this twit on the crowd asked him if they were going to use "trans-warp drive" in the next movie and he did a classic WTF look at the guy that everyone chuckled. The freakiest thing I saw was a girl with real pointed ear. Not fake, not rubber, but real honest to goodness pointed ears with real blood vessels and that could be seen when back lit by sunlight. Funny thing was she wasn't dressed in anything that screamed Star Trek. She had on a flower patterned sun dress and was carrying an infant. Really freaked me out.
I might not be a dralasite, vrusk or yazirian but I do play one in Star Frontiers!
