...all systems are go for the #30DaysOfStarTrek, beginning this Thursday! This is another first for me. I've seen other bloggers post for 30 consecutive days and always marveled at the sight. Now I'm gonna try it myself. Of course, I've already started writing in advance. The trick will be in keeping to my schedule.
If you look at the sidebar, you'll notice the itinerary, which will include the people behind the scenes as well as the characters and episodes, all from my slightly skewed perspective. In addition: I MIGHT make it to the big Trek con here in New York for one day at least. Nothing definite yet, but if it happens, I'll write about it. I did make it to the Starfleet Academy Experience exhibit at the USS Intrepid. I went there with my pals Bibi and Eric; we had a great time, and I'll definitely tell you about that. I also hope to review Adam Nimoy's film For the Love of Spock, and who knows, maybe there will be one or two other surprises.
September will be an exciting time to celebrate 50 years of Trek, and I sincerely hope you'll share your opinions, memories and stories about Trek with me this month as well.
The image at the top is from the chalk art festival I went to in New Paltz last month. I had meant to use it in my post on Beyond, but I forgot, so here it is now.
