Guess Who Was in My Home State Last Month?

I was really busy last month so I didn’t find out about this until the day after it passed, but dang! William Shatner was in New York State!

There’s this wonderful tourist attraction in Ticonderoga NY which re-creates all of the original Enterprise sets in a vacated Dollar Store property!  In May,a special “Weekend with the Captain” was held and William Shatner was the guest of honor!

I’m sorry I missed it, but my friend and member here Bobbie, did make it and got her picture with Bill. (Here’s Bobbie and Bill!)

Bobbie and Bill May 2018

Here’s my friend Bobbie with Bill Shatner on the bridge! Isn’t it amazing?

As you will read here, Bill really enjoyed visiting the remarkable set built with original blueprints by local, devoted Trekkie (and professional Elvis impersonator) James Cawley.  It was like going back in time and every detail is filled with precision and love.  No doubt an emotional experience for Bill, and I gotta hand it to the Shat-man: Bill is 87 and still enjoys seeing his fans and doing Trek events.  I hope I have his energy when I’m his age!  He is truly Living Long and Prospering!

Also, if you’re interested in visiting the Trek set replica or going to the annual ‘Trekonderoga’ convention, see info here.
