After the show, I talked to the Klingons. They were nice folks who complimented me on my Dr Who scarf and told me that they were going to be on our local PBS station during the pledge drive next week to support it. They also said that they given enough notice, they also dress as pirates and mad scientists. The woman leaned in and said, "If you give us a lot of notice, we can do mad cow scientists." The they looked at one another and said in unison, "Moooooooooohahahaha..."
We did a scene partially in Klingon and they graded it low because they said our dialect was bad. Klingon needs more spitting. Sigh.
The guy in the middle is Gus Lopez, one of the biggest Star Wars collectors in the world. He has one of the three original Death Star models in the foyer of his house. He is also a great guy. You can visit his website here at toysrgus.com.
cukebrian was so happy last night. He kept saying, "I can't believe we have a stormtrooper here. It's so great."
Oh no! It's fan fiction come to life as Star Wars and Star Trek meet.
Jill kept bringing the stormtrooper out. And calling him, my stormtrooper, Joey. I want a stormtrooper named Joey of my own.
The stormtrooper disassembled. He told me that when he was 12 or so, before he dressed up, he had a dream that he was a stormtrooper and that he couldn't keep his armor together. He would move and his forearm piece would fall off or walk and a piece of his leg armor would drop to the floor. While he was talking to me about this he was pulling the velcro pieces off his armor. "The latest Star Wars novel has a scene where a character sees a rack of stormtrooper outfits. They are just in two pieces, a suit and a helmet. I just read that, put the book down and said, Yeah, right!"
