Koenig star celebration
I had worked very hard to get my fellow Star Trek fans to support Walter Koenig who was Chekov in the Star Trek TV and movie shows. There was an ongoing letter writing campaign that I had joined in by putting all of the information on my 10,000 MySpace friends’ pages along with coordinating with the Star Trek clubs “Starfleet Command” and Starfleet International. Around 5,000 of my friends on facebook were asked to join in helping too.
I was able to attend Walter Koenig’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremony and celebration. Many stars showed up to show their support for Walter. The live cast from "Spock's Brain" put on a very entertaining show at Walter’s banquet. They can be found on YouTube @ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wf8_GEqpFjY
Walter Koenig was ever so nice to all of his fans as usual. He was deeply touched by the outpouring of love and support from all of his fans. I had quite an adventure going to Hollywood.

“What are we having for dinner this evening?”
Greetings SFC Members;
I am Rose Compton, CO of the USS Mighty Mississippi, NCC 201151 and I’d love for you to assist me in answering the above question.
As I head into the kitchen each evening, I ask, what will I prepare tonight? What sounds good? Or even what sounds quick? I also ask, am I the only one who gets tired of my own cooking with the same meals week after week after week? What can I do to change that?
Starfleet Command Quadrant One (SFCQ1) has come to the rescue with an answer to the age old question “What’s for dinner?”, by sanctioning a fleet-wide cookbook project. This mission is scheduled to continue through the end of this year (2012) time is running out and we need your help……………. We need your recipes!!!
We are not asking for hours long kitchen projects, but more of the food/dish recipes that you serve on a regular basis. We are a diverse group and we all live on a budget, we all lead busy lives and many cook for a family while others only cook for one or two. What do you cook that we may not?
In exchange for your recipe, your name and the ship or Starbase you serve on will be immortalized in print. You have a rare opportunity to supply recruitment potential for your ship or starbase and to assist a charity at the same time, as these cookbooks will be for sale on the website/club store as well as at conventions. (You can claim this on the SPAR I)
Will you be the one to step up and ensure that you and your ship are immortalized in ink or will you sit back and wait to see if someone else is up to the challenge? (once the book goes to print.. it’s too late.)
Or for those that do not have internet access….
