Wow. What a bunch of Trekkies we all are for recognizing that.
I'm the big Trekkie and it took you two to steer me into thinking that was from Star Trek.
I just knew from what Trek it was.
I'm not a Trekkie, but I live in the land of Trekkies - Vulcan, believe it or not!
Vulcan, Alberta - Just over an hour southeast of Calgary is the tiny community of Vulcan, population 1,700. It’s always been named Vulcan, but when Star Trek took off as a television series Vulcan took on a new image. Its evolution began with some local dignitaries showing up at a meeting wearing ‘Spock Ears’ for the fun of it. Their joke was a hit! So, after another town meeting the people of Vulcan decided they had been handed a new toursim 'Enterprise'. First they put up a replica of the Star Ship Enterprise next to a space ship-shaped Visitor Centre. Now there’s even an annual ‘trekkie’ convention, with several hundred people coming as their favorite characters. Drop by the center and you can join in the fun for free. You can slip into and Enterprise outfit and have your photo taken ‘in character’, or purchase your own pair of 'Spock Ears' for a souvenir.
