This past weekend was surely an exciting one because it was the first ever “Star Trek: Mission New York” convention and it would unite the races of the galaxy in celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the original “Star Trek” television show. According to my research, that first episode aired on September 8th of 1966 and while I didn’t watch it during its original run, I recall watching it as reruns at a very young age at my Grandmothers apartment on a small black and white television in her kitchen. Ahh memories. Above us hung a massive sign announcing the upcoming “Star Trek: Discovery” show which is coming to CBS All Access.
The long hallway down to the convention had some great banners hanging up and each of them bore a popular phrase from the franchise.
I’d be attending the show as a member of the press and I was stoked when I saw what our badge looked like. It was a denizen of the Borg Collective. “We Are The Media, Resistance Is Futile!!!” It was time to conquer some galaxies and for those curious about the space where this was being held, it was in the Javits Center of course but not in the main hall space and instead where one finds the Artist Alley at NY Comic Con.
That brings me to the end of the first chapter of this adventure but don’t worry I still have other sectors of the galaxy to share with you so keep your scanners tuned for that. In the meantime please click through on some of the website links to see what else they have to offer you and if you enjoy Instagram, I have loaded up a whole lot of additional images to the profile.
