Star Trek: The Cruise II Setting Sail in 2018
Meh. That's a little too rich for my blood, though I suppose if those of you who plan on excursions like this have time to plan ahead then maybe you can set your latinum aside for such an event. I do love a good convention as much as the next person, but I'll also admit I was a bit disillusioned the last time I partook of an official Star Trek event. Don't get me wrong: they're super-fun in all kinds of ways ... I just don't like being lectured by well-paid actors and actresses on how I should live my life politically (here's looking at you, Takei), nor do I like the fact that several of them use these get-togethers to kinda/sorta finance their own outside causes. I guess there's nothing wrong with celebrities using fan venues to raise money for a charity or whatnot, but given what it costs to get in to these things, stay at the hotel, sit for an official autograph event, and all you'd think some regular Joes might feel a bit guilty about asking you to spend more. I guess I'm just old fashioned ... and you kids get off my lawn!
As always, thanks for reading ... and live long and prosper!
