Time to finish this Dragon*Con recap so I can write about other things! Like weddings! And Vegas!
We went downstairs to the Sheraton Cafe and we ran into a Chell (yay), and then we got in line for Miss Star Trek Universe. Because Star Trek themed beauty pageants are the BEST.
So that’s Kim Cardasian. Other contestants included a Klingon who sung an aria from La Boheme (in Klingon duh), two Vulcans, and a hologram. There was also a Trill who was suffering from a symbiont mis-match, and she sang a medley to the symbiont, and then the symbiont was a puppet. It was so amazing.
One of the Vulcans won, and it was so glorious because the woman 100% broke character and displayed the largest, most earnest and beautiful smile ever. She clearly hadn’t expected to win (she was a little older and much more, well, clothed than some of the other contestants), and the joy she evidenced at winning was just so lovely. This is why Dragon*Con exists.
Nichelle Nichols (aka Uhura from the original series) was one of the judges.
And then we walked around some and we saw this great Cat Bus from My Neighbor Totoro.
And some Captain Americas.
