Well...The only person I met...if you can call it that...is Jim Lovell (Apollo 13 astronaut)...the reason I said "if you can call it that" is that I met him during a book signing at a Borders. He was releasing his book at the time

Ok I guess I have to let the cat out of the bag. During the 80s and 90s I was a major Star Trek fan so I've been to a bunch of conventions. I've met all of the major players except for Picard and Bev Crusher.I even got a big kiss from Worf who I happened to have the hots for at the time. I've also met the Counting Crows and Milla Johoviche(sp).

Coldplay - Chris Martin seemed pretty unsociable - the rest of the band went to the after show party while he stayed on their bus. He did give a few autographs.

Lowgold

A few Northern Irish tv folk

Sue Townsend

Michael Palin

In London I walked past Jamie Oliver and Chris Evans but we didn't say anything to them. We also saw Tony Blair. Also saw Adam in Dublin one year we went down shopping.

I have met other folk, just can't remember who now.

You're not alone here. Abel is also a huge fan of Trekiness. She checks out the conventions every year.

Hang on, is he that sports guy who live in Florida that people call shack (I guess it's not spelt like that)?
If so, i've met him too, but I had no idea who the hell he was - he's good friends with my Dad's neighbours.

I met Brendan Fraser in the lobby of the Clarence Hotel a few years back.

And all I could think to say was, "I loved you in 'Encino Man.'"

I thought better of it and kept my mouth shut.
