life in and around NYC is insane

Space, the final frontier...

Of course, I would be remiss if I did not mention that Star Trek is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year.

A show that had a mediocre 3-year run starting in 1966, that died a slow ratings death, was somehow resurrected by the fans and eventually spawned a cartoon series, three sequels and a prequel, numerous movies with the original casts and a successful reboot. 

Star Trek: Beyond is coming to theaters in July, it should be exciting.  You know who will be first on line at the IMAX for that movie!

More excitement comes in September, with Star Trek: Mission New York at the Javits Center.  It's being produced by the Comic-Con people, so it should be really well done. 

It's fitting that the convention will be in NYC, since the very first Star Trek convention took place here in 1972 at the Statler Hotel.  I remember going to the conventions at the Statler in the late 1970's. 

We haven't started planning for this one yet, I'm not sure if we'll do more than one day of the convention.

Should be fun though.
