Shatner to Serve as Calgary Stampede Parade Grand Marshal
It's a well-known fact that William Shatner loves horses. It's also a well-known fact that he's Canadian. Sometimes those two things come together in the perfect storm, which is exactly what is happening beginning July 4 when Shatner kicks off the Calgary Stampede Parade as Grand Marshal. Captain Kirk will be joined by speed skaters Gilmore Junio and Denny Morrison as honorary marshals at the event that supports the non-profit organization. Shatner admits that, despite his love of horses, he's never been to the Calgary Stampede. We're just wondering if he might run into Captain Picard there so they can ride off into the Nexus.
Star Trek Exhibition Beams Down to Jakarta
When it comes to big Star Trek events, no one gets the goodies like the United States. England and Germany get to play in the stars from time to time, but Asia often feels like the land that Trek forgot. Fans in Indonesia, therefore, are rejoicing as Star Trek: The Exhibition has touched down in Jakarta for a six-week stay. The museum-like traveling exhibition, which include costumes, props, and even recreated sets from the television series, is currently calling Gandaria City Ground External home.
