I spent the Easter weekend standing, on aching feet, behind a table at the National Space Centre, celebrating First Contact Day with a serious number of Trekkies/ers (depending on your persuasion).
A very lively event, well received by all accounts - thought I was unfortunately not able to see much of what was going on.
I spent Saturday in the company of steampunk author Steve Turnball and his charming wife, but things got a little out of hand on Sunday, when my wife joined me and seemed to both enrapture and upset a number of the locals. I think it was something to do with her attire.
Most enjoyable, and hope to do more events at the Space Centre.
