Because I’m a geek…

I really enjoyed checking out these classic Star Trek convention photos from way back when.  It’s interesting looking back at early Star Trek fandom. Check out how young (and thin) William Shatner is.  I can’t believe the stars got so up close and personal with fans at conventions, it just wouldn’t happen today.  There are pictures of Gene Roddenberry and George Takei sitting around with attendees  like it’s completely normal.  It clearly didn’t have the regimented structure that would exist now.  Also, you must look at the old costume competition pictures – they are awesome.
