How geeky can I get? (very, very!)

Looking out into the "Space Quest Casino" from the Star Trek Experience.
Cool mobiles hanging from the ceiling!
You will run into Borgs, Klingons, and Andorians
And the occasional Salt Vampire.

The reason we stayed at the Las Vegas Hilton was completely and totally because it's home to the Star Trek Experience. (Although I did see Barry Manilow. Not his show. Just him - walking through the lobby.) And it was great fun - hanging out at Quark's Bar, drinking "Bolean Sunsets." The aliens walking around are wonderful - these actors put a lot of work into both their makeup/costumes and their characters. They're not only fun to look at, they're a joy to converse with - they know their stuff!

BAH!!! GAK!!!

I'm SOOOOO jealous!

(yeah, yeah, but Brent Spiner Commented on my blog... so I win the geek award)

Glad you had a good time!

That is cool Hope. I do not plan on going to Vegas (not my thing...don't get me started on the Hoover Dam) but I would stay at the Hilton too.

Of course, I'd get a picture taken with a TNG-related creature instead of a TOS one. ;-)

I'm also impressed that Fuzzy Logic has a comment from Brent Spiner. That's impressive.

Well, off to bed or I'll be more of a Klingon tomorrow. Still trying to channel Vulcan calm at work and I'd rather knock heads! ;-)

Ohhh that looks like so much fun! I've always wanted to stay there, and yes, I'm a Trekkie.

I'm glad you had a great time.
