#DSTE Day 2

**We are live blogging, please excuse any lapses in spelling, grammar and accuracy**   Day two is off to an amazing start. The event has sold out! We started by greening ourselves up because today we are Orion Slave Girls! ... Technically we are Orion officers! The additional makeup and dressing requirements meant we missed some early panels (that's the reason, honest!). But nothing was going to keep us away from Wil Wheatons panel! Wil Wheaton's Talk Here's what happened...

Star Trek Las Vegas Pt 2

As you know, one of the key questions in the Presidential debates has gone unanswered;
