Happy Birthday to George Takei!

George Takei, known to TOS fans everywhere as Hikaru Sulu, celebrated his 78th birthday on April 20th. Mr. Sulu's professionalism, likeability, and many hobbies, such as botany, fencing, guns and more made him an interesting character. And George's outgoing personality and rapid-fire laugh made him a convention favorite of many fans! Below is an autographed photo I got from him by proxy while he was at a convention in Ft. Lauderdale, FL in the mid-70's. One guess as to why I missed the con!

It's so rare for the big comic/sci-fi conventions to come down to South Florida! Where exactly did the Takei one take place? As someone who's a bit younger than you (sorry!) I am really interested in your tales of SoFla as it was for a Trekkie in those days. I am still hoping you'll post photos (even with faces obscured!) of the Starship Enterprises comic store from your days there. Thanks for keeping up your super blog.
