Nerdgasm: Leonard Nimoy to grace Vulcan, Calgary

Although this doesn’t have much to do with Lethbridge, it’s close enough. It seems that Leonard Nimoy, aka Spock, son of Sarek, is passing through Vulcan whilst on his way to the Calgary Comic Expo.

The Town of Vulcan is gearing up for a visit from Mr. Spock himself.  Leonard Nimoy will drop by April 23rd as part of the Calgary Comic and Entertainment Expo.  Vulcan Tourism Coordinator, Dayna Dickens, says the actor will make a special appearance before the expo gets started.  She says because Nimoy has been a great ambassador for Vulcan, the Expo will bring him to the town the day before for a visit.  Even though it’s not a Vulcan Tourism event, Dickens says the town is still planning a few surprises for when Nimoy visits and has commissioned a bronzed bust of Mr.Spock.

I’ve been a huge fan of Star Trek for most of my nerdy life, with “The Next Generation” being my favourite. So for me, I think it’s even cooler that Brent Spiner, aka Data,  will be a special guest for the expo! And though I am a little disappointed that Beverly Crusher and Dianna Troi aren’t making an appearance as well, this expo sounds about as hot as a Betazoid wedding. Which is embarrassingly hot!
