I’d love to see Frakes and Spiner together. They always put on a great show for the fans

@1 There’s a “friendly” riverly going on there. It’s quite funny to see them in person.

*rivalry (if only I could spell…)

That’s what I’ve always thought, BoltBait. Their friendly jabs at each other always seem to delight the audience. You can tell that there’s a real friendship there.

October 6, 2011 5:20 pm

Wow. They should put out a DVD of that Con.

What was that? A Ferengi-Borg?

October 6, 2011 6:50 pm

Frakes now looks like Shatner’s dad.

@5 yeah! It would be great if these cons put out DVDs! I guess there might be too many licensing considerations with the stars.

October 6, 2011 10:36 pm

That was terrific! Thanks to the Macy’s for producing it!

@5, 7: Yes, I’d go for a DVD too, but you’re right about the licensing. Maybe that’s why they can’t keep the live streams on a server somewhere after the convention is over? Licensing issues?

In a recent article on this sight, Nana Visitor introduces herself. I’d never “heard” her name before. Someone can pass along… Nana is pronounced the same as a Chinese baby asking for milk.

Fun fact. Impress your friends.

Thanks for the kind words! The video was made by John Tenuto, with photos from his wife Mary Jo and their friend Scott Macy who is also the person holding his awesome Star Trek 2009 prop “1701” from the shuttle doors in the photos.

To the Frakes bashers: By this point in his Starfleet career he would now be “Commander: Star Fleet”. Cut the guy a break, thats gotta be stressful. He’s just looking the part for when they do the TNG Reunion.

And how the heck does a Chinese baby ask for milk? Are you some kind of racist?

With all his bloat, Frakes is the new Shatner!

October 7, 2011 11:01 pm

Looks like Frakes has been eating meals at the Shatner household.

October 7, 2011 11:25 pm

@20. Maybe he is Chinose.

October 8, 2011 1:46 am

@21, i was thinking that, he looks like a younger Shatner at times.

Frakes is going to star in a new movie about what happened at Area 51 back in 1947. He will be playing the part of the crashed WEATHER BALLOON.

I am really impressed with the lay out of the whole weekend. I was the only Star Fleet officer who was a (Cation) and no one even offered me any cat nip. I was hurt. He HE but all in all i had a great time. I plan on going to New Jersey next year or another convention. That Creation hosts. I say again as many have said before me. Mr Nimoy was as charming as always and Ms Nichols was the Queen as she always is. Hope to see some of the nice people that i met at the Chicago con at some other con in the future. May you all Live Long and Spread Peace
