A Day at TreKonderoga Part One: Welcome to TreKonderoga!

Hi Everyone!

Hard to believe a week has passed already since my wonderful visit to Ticonderoga, NY to attend TreKonderoga with my great friend Bobbie.

TreKonderoga  is the annual mini-Trek Convention that takes place annually at the marvelous Star Trek Original Series Set Tour in the middle of Ticonderoga, NY.   How did this incredible recreation of the TOS set come about?  Well, as Wikipedia so deftly puts it:

In the middle of Ticonderoga lies the wonderful Star Trek Original Series Set Tour! Built by James Cawley, the sets were built to make Star Trek: New Voyages was created by James Cawley in April 2003. Jack Marshall came aboard as a producer with the idea to market the series on the internet.[3] The first episode, “Come What May” debuted on the internet on January 2004. The first episodes were filmed on new sets at a long-shuttered car dealership in Port Henry, NY,[4] but production eventually moved to a former Family Dollar store at 112 Montcalm St. in downtown Ticonderoga, NY.[5] This facility is currently open to the public for tours and is officially licensed by CBS. Tour information is available at http://www.startrektour.com

I took a zillion pictures so I’ll be breaking this report up into several sections – Enjoy!    First up: Welcome to TreKonderoga!   Part II -Touring the Enterprise! –  next!

TreKonderoga, Here I Come!

Hi All,

I’ll be away this weekend attending the TreKonderoga Weekend in Ticonderoga NY!  So excited to be attending this  fun little annual Trek Convention!   It runs this weekend,  Aug. 24-26!

This is the fourth year of the event,and it was begun by genius and Elvis impersonator James Cawley who painstakingly  recreated the ENTIRE SET of the Starship Enterprise in an abandoned dollar store!  It is an exact copy of all the sets used in the original series, right down to every button and wall decoration! James used the original blueprints to recreate this magnificent set, and I can’t wait for the tour.  It’ll be a dream come true! (BTW, the Set tours happen all year round, but the TreKonderoga Weekend is only once a year!

The Special guests this year are Karl Urban (Dr. McCoy from the reboot) Gates McFadden (Dr. Crusher, Star Trek TNG) and Robin Curtis! (Saavik from Star Trek III and IV)  Also the wonderful Spock impersonator Paul Spock Vegas (Paul Forest)!  There are probably still tickets for Saturday and Sunday!  Hey if you’re in the neighborhood, I’ll be roaming around there Saturday!  You can see more info here.

Can’t wait to share pictures with you next week! Until then, here’s a few pics to whet your appetite!  LLAP! Love, Therese

New Feature! Name that Episode!

I thought it would be fun to add a game feature here to keep your memories jogged!  I’ll post a few obscure pictures from TOS about once a week and see if you can identify them  If many of you (like me) have watched the original 79 at least a few dozen times in your life, this shouldn’t be hard, but I’ll start with some easy ones this time!

Send Your Answers to: trekkerscrapbook@gmail.com

I will post the answers with next week’s puzzle!

Thanks for you patience waiting for new stuff; it’s been a busy month!  More coming soon! -Therese 🙂
