My favorite constellation, too, Orion Belt. Kirk mentions one of them in TCotEoF, and in 'All Good Things...' he mentions that Geordi is from Rigel, but, no, I don't think they actually ever go there.

Of course I go to TREK conventions! It would be uncivilized to do otherwise!

You know your a Trekkie when you fly Klingon Airlines to a con.

There motto is "If a big tear opens up in the side of the plane, put your head between your leggs and grab you A$$ cause thats your flotation device"

Lol Admiral.
How can you not go a con? And if that proves you're a Trekkie, it's 'if you really want to or if you do' because there are some people that just can't go.

Heh...  Wish I had the time to go to Vegas...  However, I'm pretty sure that there could be some mini-conventions here in the Cleveland, OH area.  I'll have to search around for some.
After all, I believe there are some actors/actresses that do hail from the Buckeye State, so I'll have to see if conventions would be in order.

You're a trekkie if you sometimes imagine that an elevator is a disintegrating chamber

If you look at the Aurora Borealis or Australis and think that it's the Nexus Ribbon.

done that...kind of...

i dont get the full northern lights here in bc..but sometimes i can see silver & blue (or sometimes green) very faintly dancing across. makes me think of the nexus every time.

you're a trekkie/-er if:

you have all of Trek on dvd (including TAS)
you call someone you hate a phatak (done that a few times...)
you say "quapla" (done that a few times to lol )
you wonder if you're actually human or maybe some other race that got left here

If you are happy to let the whirring and whistling play on the DVD Menu for hours in the background whilst you go about your housework (Guilty as charged)

I actually like doing that too. Something about the beeps and whirs of the Enterprise is soothing. ¿:laugh:

We're all mad, I tells ya. ¿:laugh:

I left a message on a friends voice mail a few times and told him to report to the bridge. It was so funny, and we shared it with another trekkie who worked with us.

Hehehe. Do you use a cell phone that flips open? Because those look similar to TOS-style communicators.

I think I would always want to have a flip phone just because of the communicators on TOS..... :blush: :laugh:

Yes. When I open it, I have been tempted to say Kirk to Enterprise. :laugh:
