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!

Check out some of these incredible photoshopped imaginings coming out of the Treknobabble Subreddit. Made by deadfraggle who made the TOS/TNG cross over pics that spread over the web like a secret whispered at Quarks.
This is our favourite, downloaded it to to full resolution for our own stash.
P.S. Sam's Wil Wheaton stash, whilst remarkable, still pales in comparison to … Continue Reading ››
24th Century Socialites. 21st Century high functioning nerds. We go to Star Trek Conventions and talk about Star Trek a lot.
