    Oh, not much.

    Just commanded the Starship Enterprise.



    This was taken at the PNE. My wife is handling Riker’s duties (she didn’t want to be Counsellor Troi-- who does?) and my brother-in-law is ably manning the science station. Or maybe it’s the weapons station. Or the security station. Well, it’s whatever the script needs it to be, okay?

    This was part of the awesome Star Trek exhibit. It’s a full-size replica of the original bridge set, which was destroyed in the disappointing Generations movie. I also got to sit in Kirk’s original chair, which was pretty awesome.

    EDIT: Okay here’s a pic of me in Kirk’s chair.



    EDIT AGAIN: And here's the NCC-1701D's transporter room:
