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
