I got home just a little while ago. I had a wonderful time in Vegas, and enjoyed Star Trek The Experience oh so much. I felt like a little kid in a candy store. We got to see the Klingon Encounter and the Borg Invasion, then we ate lunch at Quark’s Bar & Restaurant. Unfortunately, many of the shops and special shows were already closed down. Next weekend is the final weekend for Star Trek The Experience.
The best part was that I got to see some of the characters. I have a few photo’s, but please keep in mind that I normally don’t let anyone take my picture, Don’t ask me why because I don’t know. There was the Andorian, K'Stran Thral, who was walking around Quarks. My sister Tinaliegh got involved also, and let me get some pictures of her. I won't post them here though until I get her permission, just a courtesy. Then there was the Ferengi Quan, who was making polite conversation with patrons of the bar. True to Ferengi Nature he was interested in improving the income of the bar.
Later while waiting for the Borg Invasion we met a Klingon female, Major Kahlen, who allowed us to take a picture. I tried to get her to have a drink of blood wine, but she refused saying "Not until after your conquest Human". She simply had no sense of humor.
Much later we had caricatures done of us. Tinaliegh was a Orion female, great cartoon, hopefully she'll let me post a picture of it. I was done as an Andorian, quite appropriate for me, an alien from a planet of snow and ice. The artists were very good, and were obviously having a grand time doing the caricatures.
Over all, Star Trek The Experience, was the highlight of my trip. Tinaliegh and her husband had more fun watching me than anything else. I heard, on a number of occasions, "your grinning from ear to ear". At Quarks, we had Trip Tucker's Chili and Chips and Hosi Sato's Coconut Shrimp for appetizers. I had the Promenade Fettuccine, while Tinaliegh and her hubby had Moogie's Choice Pasta. I took one look at the Warp Core breach, and decided it would probably knock me flat on my back, so I had a Chaotica's Death Ray, which was strong enough to dam near incapacitate me.
I stayed at the Flamingo, and we spent a considerable amount of time in the casino's. I discovered that I was pretty much uninterested in gambling, I just couldn't wrap my mind around the concept. I did do a little, to be sure, but found it more interesting to walk around the casino and watch people. Here's a picture of the view from my hotel room, of the pool at the Flamingo.
