Since the captain of the time ship Relativity allowed me a tiny outing in time, so I didn’t have to split in two, yet I was able to attend the event, which was organized by the Star Trek Friends Association. I was already lucky enough to see one of their performances on MondoCon on Saturday, where Star Trek’s Japanese connections were dissected.
Unfortunately, I missed the morning programs that mostly revolved around the First Contact movie – the return date was set incorrectly, but they did me a favor, so I really shouldn’t have said that to the captain. But I arrived successfully for the presentation I wanted most: Magdolna Kasza gave an all-encompassing presentation on Star Trek timelines, Khan, and the two newly made films.
Then they introduced me to the mysteries of Star Trek Online, and where I managed to get all the participants to try MMORPG – plus I learned that Hungarian online games already have a community, since 2002, if you are curious about them, look for them as Shadowwalkers.
And as a surprise guest, Brandon Hackett (aka Markovics Botond) arrived to present his new book, Time Travel. In his presentation, he outlined the idea of time travel before us, interwoven with his own thoughts and the latest scientific theories – perhaps, needless to say, there were plenty of applicants to read the book.
It was a great feeling to meet the other Trekkies, where I managed to blend very skillfully with my technical uniform (I just left that damn communicator again). I look forward to the next meeting of similar wit and quality. Until then: Live long and prosper!
