    Nelson,Thank you for your impressions of the event you attended. I appreciated reading your thoughts on it very much. And I would have loved to have been there as well. But I have to ask, was Nichelle really given some 'honorary plagues' or was it something else? ;)

    Full disclosure, I read the PDF of it two years ago and I'm thanked inside of it.

    However, the printed final version is gorgeous. I've been flipping through it, revisiting sections. It's everything you could want to know about the making of the first movie. You may have read other making of books, but to borrow a phrase, there is no comparison.

    You're welcome guys, I figured you'd be interested in hearing what happened at the Cushman book signing. I'll post a picture from last night if you're interestedThanks Neil for the review of the Return to Tomorrow book. Boy I'm really looking forward to reading it and the third Cushman book. Which one to read first, it will be hard to decide!

    Thanks Lou, the phasers keep popping out of the woodwork!

    Here are the pics from last night. They are from an iPhone, I didn't have my proper camera with me.

    Yes thanks Nelson. Looks like a nice setup with the big screen behind them and everything.

    Great pictures! It seems like a worthwhile evening. Did you get to ask anything?Thanks for the review, Neil. I can hardly wait for the book to arrive. I emailed them again, as Nelson did, to remind them of my order and my existence. I'll let you know if I hear anything back.

    "Think about music, Scott". :) Definitely worth the effort to see them that night, Lee! I feel like it was likely more satisfying then the big convention going on this weekend right now. Wow, I was flipping on the TV and see the Love Boat is on. I couldn't quite figure out who one very familiar looking actress was who looked like she was being wooed by Bob Denver. It was Miri herself! Kim Darby.

    I finally found the CBS Watch magazine featuring the history of Star Trek. It's nicely made; as Scott surmised, very little is new, although there are a few unfamiliar photos. Not all that accurate or informative for people researching the actual history of the series, but a nice sort of scrapbook for the initiated.

    Thanks for the reminder Lee. With so many things going on, I forgot about the heads up from Scott on this magazine. I see it's available on-line for purchase. Did you find it at a newsstand or something?

    Our local retail book store is Hastings and they have a magazine section. It wasn't there last week or the week before, but it was there today.

    That's interesting, I've never seen that magazine before and when I go to the bookstore I usually look around. I could have easily missed it though. Thanks.

    You could say the same thing (regarding accuracy) about the Marc Cushman books, but that hasn't stopped some people from swearing by them.

    I found my magazine at a Ralphs super market. It's nice looking and yes, there are some silly errors in it (Talos IV was not shot in the California desert). But I actually did learn something from it and there are images in it I've never seen before.

    On the subject of the trivia question, is the answer we are seeking a list of people or of things?

    Lee, I was about to post if the question was still on people's minds. I would say the answer is more related to a list of people.

    Thanks Neil, good to know the magazine is readily available as you and Lee has found in regular retail locations. Perhaps Barnes and Noble would have it then.

    Is it the kids? Kirk says "men, women, and children" but we don't see any kids. Is that right??
