Those of you who know my Dad, know that he is a BIG Trekkie. He has all the collectible Christmas tree ornaments and has seen every episode of Star Trek, and all the series that came after, Starship Enterprise, Deep Space Nine, Voyager to name a few. His family owned a hotel in Canada where the actor who played Captain James. T Kirk came in. He was able to meet him, and Captain Kirk even asked his sister out on a date :) haha
Needless to say, I grew up watching Star Trek at night, because, well that is what my Dad was watching. At first I would complain because I would have rather watches something else, but then I started getting into it. You start to know what is going on. I was predisposed to be a trekkie. I didn't even have to try, I just know alot about Star Trek because it was all around me growing up. Nerdy, yes. But every family has its quirks. So when we found out there was a a city named Vulcan not too far away from Calgary and they had a whole Star Trek thing going on there, we couldn't resist. I really wish Trevor had been able to go on this trip to Canada with us, because he would have died to see us all at this place. My dad was in Star Trek heaven and the rest of the family thought it was pretty cool too since we know all the characters and story lines. It was an entertaining day to say the least, and we had a lot of fun running around this hole in the wall town that had little Star Trek Spots, with murals of Star Trek characters, and even places to put your head and take a pictures, haha all around the the town. It was a blast!
