Gearing Up for the Star Trek Convention!
It all happens Saturday Night in this BOSTON area exclusive attraction: the cast of Star Trek: The Next Generation (Brent Spiner, LeVar Burton, Michael Dorn, Gates McFadden, Marina Sirtis and Denise Crosby) take the stage together for an evening of live entertainment you just won't want to miss! This 90 minute evening show is not part of any ticket package and must be purchased separately. Here are the prices for this one time only area special event!
What I'm excited about:
-Actually taking pictures with the actors that I've watched on television since before I can even remember. As a kid I used to watch The Next Generation every night. There would be back to back episodes starting at 7pm. I think it was like a rerun of last week and then the new one for that week. My favorite character was Data because I identified with his awkward social skills and had some of the same problems with understanding humor. If you told little Aubrie all those years ago that she would actually be meeting Data (or the actor that played Data) and taking a picture with him when she grew up I know I would have been sooooo excited.
-Seeing the actors perform in person live. How cool is that?
-Seeing who else is there (and their costumes!) and sharing my love for Star Trek with all the other fans.
What I'm nervous about:
-Meeting the actors when I take my picture with them. I so don't want it to be awkward. What if one of them says something mean and totally turns me off to Star Trek forever! That would be horrible!
-Driving through Boston and getting a parking spot in Boston. Since I'm going with my sister, my brother, and his girlfriend, at least none of us will be alone.
-The long lines. I hate lines, and I can't imagine how long the lines will be for this event. At least I have company to talk to as I stand there waiting! Is it worth it? Heck, ya!
So, I'll post about what happened after Saturday and let you all know (with pictures) how it went! Wish me luck!
