Hi Everyone! Last Saturday (August 24) I had the pleasure of going to the great annual Star Trek convention in upstate NY known as ‘Trekonderoga”! This was my second year at the event, and I had a fun time.
This year’s guests were David Frankham (Larry Marvick in Is There in Truth No Beauty?), Robin Curtis (Saavik in Star Trek III and IV), Terry Farrell (Jadzia Dax of Deep Space Nine) and Ethan Peck (Spock in Star Trek: Discovery). I was so happy to meet with all these wonderful actors, and especially David Frankham, who is one of the most active 93-year old actors you’ll ever meet, and a total delight!
This was the second TreKonderoga I’ve been to, (the cons began 5 years ago) and I suspect I’ll go to it again next year (usually in August). The event is based around the year-round attraction that is Star Trek Original Series Tour, where its creator, James Cawley, has totally recreated the complete and original Star Trek set which was used in the fan series Star Trek New Voyages: Phase II.If you’re ever in the area, check out the tour, it truly takes you back in time, it might even make you a little weepy with joy!
I’ll be writing several posts here about each of the actors and events, but for now, enjoy these great cosplayers! These fans brought their game, and it’s lovely!
