Celebrating Star Trek’s 40th Anniversary

We drove north to Sacramento today and we celebrated along many fans the 40th Anniversary of Star Trek, with Leonard Nimoy & William Shatner driving the show. Each actor had a monologue — I loved how sharp Nimoy is and how full of joy Shatner is at their 75+ years of age. The two actors later got together on stage (it was great to see how good friends they have been all these years) with Shatner toasting some champagne saying “here’s to another 40 years…“.

Nimoy and Shatner today

Later I found myself next to Nimoy for a picture together. His ‘Mr. Spock’ character has influenced me over the years, especially in my early life. Today was a good day.

Update: More pictures from the event here. Sorry for the bad quality, we should have used a tripod…

I don’t have it yet. I will take hold of my picture with Nimoy in 15 days or so (the organizing venue will mail it to me).
But I did shot quite a few pictures of Nimoy & Shatner with our P850 Kodak camera…

Will you post your pictures too ?
I envy you. I’m a huge Star Trek fan but it’s a long way from France to Sacramento…

They are pretty dark… We should have gotten our tripod with us…
As for my pic with Nimoy I will post it when I get it, but only if I don’t look like a dork. :)
