Star Trek Seattle
Ok first I will explain some stuff to people who don’t know what was going on.
I am a huge Star Trek fan, The Next Generation was my first Star Trek. My favorite character as a kid, and reason I started watching TNG was because of Denise Crosby who played Tasha Yar.
I have said for years that I think Tasha Yar Made Me Gay.
I have had this thought for years, that if I ever got to meet Denise that I would wear a T-shirt that said Tasha Yar Made Me Gay .
I made the t-shirt on Friday but it still smelt like paint so I decided not to wear it.
I did however have an extra copy of the sign in the car. I thought I would bring it in instead.
In the corner of the vendors room signing autographs was Marina Sirtis (Deanna Troi), Denise Crosby, and Gates McFadden (Dr. Beverly Crusher. I could not go in that corner at all.
Levar Burton was there so I got his autograph and he is lovely!!!
So The Women of Star Trek (Gates, Marina, and Denise) were doing their panel and they are awesome!!!
I went up to ask a question.
The people before me was talking about how the ladies of Star Trek influenced them for medical reasons, or scientific reasons or whatever.
I walked up to the mic and didn’t say anything and held up my TASHA YAR MADE ME GAY sign.
Marina read it OUT LOUD.
Denise Crosby looks shocked and awed and gets up from her chair and says “That’s the kinda influence I’m talking about!!!”
She walks toward the stairs and spreads her arms and says “come here baby!!!” so I walked up on the stage and
DENISE CROSBY KISSES ME ON THE LIPS!!!!!!!!!
She gave me the biggest hugs, like 5 of them because I was almost crying and she whispers to me, “don’t cry or I will start crying, I love you” and I was like “I love you too”
And then I got to ask my question.
After, I kind of ran away to a chair and ended up sitting beside the world’s most quick witted human being.
He asked if I got pictures of that, and I said I didn’t so he said I should tear up my sign and put my info on it and hand it to photographers in the front row. I did that and some people will email them in a few days I hope.
(funny enough, Marina also kissed someone on stage which lead Gates to be like “well everyone else did it” and she kissed someone on stage too)
After that, people all the rest of the afternoon were like “omg that almost made me cry that was so cool”
I actually made the coolest friends over the weekend because of this all happening.
