Make it so.

I have done it.
I just ordered my ticket to the Star Trek--Las Vegas convention. AND two photo ops--one with Nichelle Nichols, right, (Uhura), that I have no doubt about. And one with Nimoy (Spock) which causes me various shades of distress.
(I'd feel all conflicted about actually seeing Bruce Springsteen too. One wonders if it's wise.)
I was fretting about the Nimoy thing yesterday and Bink ordered me to do it. She said I could not return to town without a pic of me and Nimoy in hand.

Item Quantity Unit Price
TKT-GEN ADM 1 $149.00
TKT-LEONARD NIMOY PH OPS TKT 1 $70.00
TKT- PHOTO OP W/NICHELLE NICHOLS 1 $40.00

I see this trip in a mixed way: partly as a chance to witness--and write about!--bizarre American culture and partly as entirely wholehearted pilgrimage.

My 13-year-old self is over the moon.
My adult self sighs: I still have to order airplane and hotel tickets.

I agree with bink. If you were to come back without the Nimoy, you'd kick yourself forever.

Wow, Uhura looks great--better now than she did in the '60s!

Hooray! Hooray! You're on your way!

One less thing in my life to regret! Nimoy would die and I would say, "Why didn't I just get over it and take that photo op?"

Uhura does look great--this photo is from her recent role in "Heroes" on TV, which I'd never heard of.
