1994 was a quiet year for Star Trek guests at Rising Star 3. In fact, there were none!
However, I did get the chance to meet and socialise with Richard Biggs, who played Dr Stephen Franklin on Babylon 5, another favourite of mine.
Rick was a great guy, and ‘Aunt Shirley’ the head of his fan club was equally as great!
Rick was great at keeping people entertained. He ran the funniest auction I have ever been to, and provided a great stand-up routine at the Saturday night banquet. At the staff and crew social after the event he was equally as gracious. I also got the chance to be his stand-in guest assistant on a couple of occasions as I was assisting the con-organiser.
Another great taken far too early.
