Nicole de Boer
One of our favorite fan run conventions is close at hand... Starbase Indy, in Indianapolis, is launching it's 17th mission over Thanksgiving weekend. Not only will you be able to see J.G. Hertzler and Robert O'Reilly as Martok & Gowron, but Nicole de Boer (Ezri Dax) will also be on hand. Not to mention our good friend Larry Nemecek and artist David Reddick will also be in attendance. We had the pleasure of covering Starbase Indy in 2010 and had an absolute blast meeting new friends and getting to hang out with Life After Trekker Manu Intiraymi.
Happy birthday to Nicole de Boer, she turns 40 today. Many of you remember Nicole as the second incarnation of Dax (or is that 11th); Ezri Dax from the last season of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. After leaving DS9, Nicole went on to star opposite Anthony Michael Hall in "Stephen King's Dead Zone" from 2002 to 2007. According to IMDB, she also has several upcoming TV movies in the works.
Something we didn't know, she also had a small role in the Kids in the Hall movie "Brain Candy". Hailing from the Great White North, just like the "Kids", Nicole is currently married to film score composer John Kastner. We'd like to give warm birthday wishes to Nicole. Happy birthday.
Hat tip to Cmdr. Torkadon for giving us a heads up.
Okay, so, I'm not sure how we missed this, but there's a huge Comic Con in Anaheim, CA. set for April 16th - 18th with a virtual galaxy class starship full of Star Trek stars. The convention is to be held at the Anaheim Convention Center and has over 150 guests planned for the event. Let's just put it this way, William Shatner, Nichelle Nichols, Brent Spiner, LeVar Burton, Michael Dorn, Cirroc Lofton, Garrett Wang, and TONY TODD are going to be on hand. Why is Tony Todd in all caps? 'Cause it's flippin' Kurn man! If we still lived in So Cal, we'd be all up in that con for sure.
Thanks to @TrekGuy62 for hooking us up with the info! Follow him! (That sounded alot like a commandement)
