September 1996- Rising Star 5

1996 brought Rising Star 5. Again, Deanna Lund was there and Rick Biggs made a welcome return. We were also lucky enough to have 2 Star Trek guests.

The first was Don Marshall. Don played Lt. Boma in the classic episode (and one of my favourites) The Galileo 7. We were asked to help drive Don from place to place and be a general assistant to him. I don’t drive so that duty fell to my buddy, Ben. We were also lucky enough to have Don as our table guest at the Saturday Night banquet where he regaled us with stories from the set, including the fun they had playing with giant polystyrene boulders. He was also kind enough to sign my rather battered copy of the photonovel.

I didn’t get the chance to interact with Yvonne Craig for very long. She only had the one Trek role and is probably more famous for being Batgirl in the 60s Batman series. She seemed very nice though!
