William Shatner by Gage Skidmore
Attention, launch crew! If (like me) you were planning on attending the ‘Star Trek Set Tour’s upcoming weekend visit with star/icon William Shatner, set for May 4 and 5, well…the pot just got a whole lot sweeter!
‘Tour’ head honcho James Cawley has just announced that very special tour guides will be on hand for the occasion, direct from the “Star Trek” art team —
Mike and Denise Okuda (graphic design, “ST: TNG” through “ST: Enterprise”)
Doug Drexler (makeup, design and visual effects for “ST: TNG” through “ST: Enterprise” and several “ST” films)
Daren Dochterman (illustrator, “ST: Voyager,” visual effects, “ST: TMP”)
Michael and Denise Okuda
Each of them will offer their own unique perspectives on the original series, and they will also be available for autographs. Plus — special ‘moonlight’ tours (no overhead lights, set lights only) will be available late Saturday night, May 5.
In the words of the immortal Lennon, “A splendid time is guaranteed for all!”
