Went to a Star Trek Convention today in San Francisco. A friend of mine won free tickets on the radio and asked if I would be her plus one. I readily accepted when I discovered Patrick Stewart and William Shatner were both going to be there.

$89 and an hour in line later, I got Patrick Stewart's autograph. No personalizations available, especially since I was 339th in line according to my autograph ticket. He didn't say a word to me but looked up and made eye contact before quickly looking back down, scribbling his signature and passing my Next Generation Season 1 DVD set back to me from across the table.

"Thank you so much, sir," I said, struck with awe that he, however insanely briefly, acknowledged my existence by making eye contact.

There are some pictures and videos of Mr. Stewart and Mr. Shatner doing a Q&A before the autographs on facebook. Pictures of the autograph itself will follow.

Photo ops were available too...for an extra $100 for Shatner and a measly $200 for Stewart. I technically couldn't even afford the $89 autograph, but I somehow scrounged up the funds.

And after all that Star Trek stuff, when I went through the vendors to see what they had for sale, the only thing that caught my eye was a Rogue Squadron patch. Couldn't afford it though.

Star Wars nerd until the very end I suppose :lol:

Let me get this straight... you paid $89 for a STAR TREK autograph... but didn't buy a Rogue Squadron patch?!

You better have been going undercover :evil: ! ( :wink: )

As promised, photographic proof of the autograph. That reminds me, did I ever post pictures of my Troy Denning autographs?
