I Met Some Star Trek Stars: My Cincinnati Comic Expo Experience

I went to the Cincinnati ComicCon again.
This was the second time I’ve been to this con.
It’s pretty cool.
I saw a few celebrities but the ones I really wanted to see and did were Nichelle Nichols (Lt. Uhura on Star Trek) and Brent Spiner (Lt. Commander Data on Star Trek:The Next Generation, it’s four movies, the Independence Day movies, and the upcoming Picard series).
Both were very nice.
As of next year, Nichelle is apparently not making personal appearances anymore so this was my chance to meet her. I’m glad I did.
She had a great turnout, as she should.
Brent I was supposed to meet last year but he had to cancel. I’m glad I met him today.
I told him how much a fan I am and that I think the Star Trek Nemesis movie (the last Star Trek movie with The Next Generation cast) is underrated and under appreciated. He thanked me and agreed with me.
I also said I’m looking forward to the Picard show, and he said he was looking forward to seeing it too. The last thing he said to me was “Be well”.
Another cool day for me. Especially since I’m a Star Trek fan.
I get to do it again tomorrow when I see Willie Nelson, Bonnie Raitt, and others in concert at Riverbend Music Center, just outside Cincinnati.
I consider that place my home away from home.
