And now, a Public Service Announcement from trekkerscrapook.com
My Dear Friends and Fellow Trek Fans, We are going through a bizarre, somewhat surreal time in our world right now. I know you are all aware of the Corona Virus which causes COVID-19. There is no doubt that is very scary, and we are all stressed from worrying and preparing for it.
Although we cannot predict how long this will last or if we ourselves will be infected, I hope and pray that all reading this are taking precautions to prevent the spread of this malady, and that our families and friends will stay healthy and well.
We wonder how to keep ourselves occupied without our regular daytime activities, yet this pandemic also offers us a rare chance at simpler lives; taking time to enjoy our families at home, catching up on books and home chores and projects. In this creative spirit, I patched together the collage below, advising us on Corona Virus, as presented by some old pals 😉 You may share this but please be sure to credit me 🙂 Enjoy.
Today is the first day of Spring, and we will be reborn, it will just be a bit later. Kirk and Company would take this head on, as we can. Stay happy, stay strong, be logical. The Human Spirit is our strength. God Bless you all, and LLAP!
One of my favorite moments of visiting ‘Trekonderoga’ recently was the meeting most delightful and friendly actor David Frankham, who memorably played the ill-fated Larry Marvick from TOS episode Is There in Truth No Beauty? David and his friend, (actor, … Continue reading →
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!
