Captain’s Log – April 16th, 2016

Saturday April 16th, 2016

Day 2 of Treklanta was the busiest.  We got almost $ 500 in donations, which was awesome.  And we had our full contingent of Axanerd volunteers!  Here is the day in pictures….

    Wow, that guy portraying Scotty, is the spitting image of James Doohan! I thought my memory was acting up, so had to look up to see if the real Scotty had really passed away. Yep,2005. But that guy could actually play a part in future Star Trek movies. Amazing!
    Glad you all are having a good time promoting Axanar. Can’t wait for the BS to be over. And thanks for keeping the blog going,I especially like the Fan Film Friday’s. Nice!

    We had such a great time! It was an honor to help out with Axanar promotion again and to meet the many celebrities there. In addition to Leslie Owens, Tracy Cocco, Keith DeCandido, and the Trimbles, Jack Stauffer (BoJay on the original Battlestar Galactica) and Carel Struycken (Lurch on the original Addams Family and Mr Homm, Lwaxana Troi’s assistant on ST TNG) were there. All were very friendly and available for pictures and signatures. DragonCon 2014 was my first ever Sci-Fi Convention, but the smaller shows like Treklanta provide much greater access to the actors and writers of the programs and books that we all love so dearly. Thank you to all involved for a wonderful weekend!
