    "Chris(topher) Pike" was the captain character in the original Star Trek pilot. Chris Pine is the actor playing the new role of Captain Kirk. I'm guessing William Shatner actually said he wanted Chris Pine to play him in a movie, not Chris Pike.

    I love Comic Con because it's the only place you can go dressed up or not, and no-one thinks you look weird or odd and you can genuinely talk about such wonderful topics as Star Trek and you're not the only one that gets a gleam in your eye recalling past movies or episodes. It's science fiction lovers haven full of aliens and superheroes and good versus evil under one roof! Where else can you go to have this experience? Well, maybe a comic book store, but this is so much better!

    As Shatner asked "what are they all doing there on a nice sunny Saturday?" well, it's about as close to the people who portray these characters that we can get by attending panels, having photo ops and autographs! Just wish the prices were much cheaper and Shatner is definitely one of the most expense for these opportunities, as are most of the Star Trek "oldies".

    Pre-purchasing all tickets for entry, photo ops, autograph ops, etc., would definitely save on queues!
