Re: Who's your favorite Trek actor at conventions?

Many, many moons ago, when I worked on conventions, I met several cast members. The only real jerk in the bunch was Shatner.

I ended up being friends with some of them, including:

George Takei - the most helpful friend one could ask to have in the mean world of Hollywood

Jimmy Doohan - we met several times and swapped war stories over drinks.

Dee Kelley - he and his wife were as lovable as his character was gruff. That Southern charm was genuine in real life.

Majel B. Roddenberry - George Takei introduced us at a convention. She was a much smarter woman than people often assumed. She even championed my project, although it never made it to production.

While having met other Trek actors, I never really got to know them.
