On the bridge, making a difference

Yesterday I decided to go to star trek London again. Mitch suggested going with his brother John, and I though I’d take the opportunity to make sure I hadn’t missed anything saturday. With any luck, I reasoned, there was a chance I could speak to Sir Patrick Stewart again. We got there quite late, and by then the convention was winding down; none of the cast members were there any more. i got to talk to a few people though, and teach John the Klingon word ”Qa’pla”. I also got to forfill another of my longest-held dreams – to sit in the captain’s chair, on the bridge of the Enterprise! I cannot tell you how happy I am with this image, with what happened this amazing weekend; it somehow makes me feel complete.

[quote=”Star trek generations”] Kirk: Captain of the Enterprise, huh?

Picard: That’s right.

Kirk: Close to retirement?

Picard: I’m not planning on it.

Kirk: Well let me tell you something. Don’t! Don’t let them promote you. Don’t let them transfer you. Don’t let them do *anything* that takes you off the bridge of that ship, because while you’re there… you can make a difference. [/quote]
