Re: Convention Circuit - Most Favorite Person You've Met?

I used to have autographs from DeForest Kelley, George Takei, Nichelle Nichols, and James Doohan, but the only one I got to talk to for a few minutes was DeForest at a small con in Kansas City during the early to mid 80s. Very kind and generous man.

My favorite non-Trek brush with greatness was in the 70s, when Al Lewis (Grandpa Munster), in town for a dinner theatre performance, came to talk to our acting class. After the lecture, he wanted something to eat, so a half dozen of us sat at a table in the campus cafeteria listening to Al talk about the days of 50s and 60s television.
