ITT, we talk about anyone we've ever met from Star Trek

Post by Ice Cream Jonsey » Tue Feb 14, 2017 11:48 pm

I met James Doohan at a Star Trek convention in Rochester, NY when I was 17. He was a great dude, got to say hello and shake his hand and tell him he was an inspiration. He was an inspiration for all the times I tried to imitate a Scottish accent, not really the engineering as such.

As I think nobody else on this BBS has met someone in Star Trek, and certainly not recently, this thread will probably die a quick, sad, lonely death. :(

Boy, I... I wish things were different. :( :(

I'd love to meet Brent Spiner. My favorite Star Trek actor.

Well my gosh, it's funny that you should mention this! I recently met George Takei, when he dropped by my workplace. We were introduced, we shook hands, he was very genial. He didn't say it, but I got the sense that he was thinking "this fellow would have fit right in on the Enterprise."

My wife has met virtually all of them.

I have met none.

So between us, we got the whole franchise covered.
Above all else... We shall go on... And continue!

Awesome. I saw this on Facebook, and I wanted to talk to you about it, but I didn't know if that would be acceptable or not.

Did he have the hands of a helmsman, Greg? I feel he would have helmsman's hands. Together, we know what a good handshake feels like from Scotty and Sulu, who teamed up in the one episode where they got kidnapped and Kirk almost had to punch a cat in the face.

Come on. Not a SINGLE one, Ben? If you had to meet one for cocktails and forced conversation, who would you pick?

Small hands -- he was much smaller than me -- but a firm handshake. I've never shaken the hands of a helmsman, but I think it would be similar.

I don't want to bother them, they get enough of that.

I'm gonna mark you down for Picard, with the understanding that you'd only talk about his new show.

I've met five people who were in Star Wars and none who were in Star Trek. Also, all the people I met who were in Star Wars wore masks, so it's entirely possible I have simply met five scam artists.
