I’m going to be geeking out on Monday at the opening of the new Paley Center Exhibit of Juan Ortiz Star Trek inspired art. I grew up loving Captain Kirk and his kiss with Uhura was a major crush moment for me as a child. I’m a geek born and bred with a dad who’s major bonding was watching episodes of Star Trek (and other Science Fiction shows) together. So when I got the invite it took me back to fond family memories of favorite shows, hanging with my dad and sister and well happy moments of childhood long since passed. I mean really Star Trek is one of those shows that are STILL good even though it’s over 40 years old the stories, cast chemistry and creatures can still entertain. You would assume I’d be Uhura but I’m more of a Spock. The Spock in the opposite world where his passion was at the forefront but still analytical. Hmmmm what does that say about me??? What Star Trek iconic character do you identify with and why?
Make sure you head to Beverly Hills and the Paley Center to see these iconic scenes reimagined by Juan Ortiz!
