HAPPY 2013 TO TREKKIES && NON-TREKKIES ALIKE!!
What a fun night I had a couple weeks ago at the Q Pop Shop!! There was a Star Trek art show called “Beam Me Up” where tons of folks spent their Saturday night on Feb. 16 – quite the eventful meeting of the United Federation of Los Angeles Star Trek lovers. Here’s a link to the sweetest Q Pop Shop exhibit of the year – Beam Me Up!
There were all sorts of paintings and sand drawings of various Star Trek series characters, embroideries and action figure collectibles, antique tricorders and screen-printed shirts, tons and tons more. I didn’t get to drink any Romulan Ale. I heard it sold out pretty early in the night, so I’ll have to get it next time! The dj was supposed to be playing “Star Trek tunes” but I couldn’t hear a thing, wish I had some borg implants to help me hear better!! Hahah.
Anyway here’s some photos of the show. I’m hoping to attend a convention this year, wish me luck!

There was a huge line to see the Star Trek exhibit at Q Pop Shop!! Everybody wanted a piece of the future!
There were so many communicators and tricorders!! It was super classy gear and original Star Trek style.
Art by Anna Hollingsworth and ‘Neon Spock’ by Kevin Sukho Lee (avail. here)
Can anybody guess who the top painting is? He’s a special guy for Star Trek, definitely a special guy. And of course, Spock keeping it logical.
This couple was so cool! The dude made both costumes and he owned all the gadgets on display in the previous photo. I asked for a photo while debating what series is the best, too awesome… (we agreed TNG then Voyager).
Worf by Nick Bachman and Susan Nguyen (avail. here)
This won my heart, what a jem. You can practically hear Worf growling!!
Live Long and Prosper,
