I've been fortunate enough to get a few Tweets from some of the actors and I'm going to post screen caps of them on here eventually. Call it pride, call it privileged or call it showing off, haha, either way, receiving a Tweet back, especially when it's something that you want to hear, is better than any drug to a true Trekkie.
Unfortunately, it's not just birthdays that our community is reminded of on social media sites, but it is also passings. Today sees the birthday of Mr James Doohan (Scotty), and if you haven't yet seen the documentary 'Trekkies' then I urge you to do so immediately. I was never lucky enough to see Doohan in person at a convention, but watching his interview on 'Trekkies' where he wells up telling a tale about a suicidal woman whom he helped become an engineer all because of her Star Trek fandom is inspiring to say the least.
