Where we boldly went...

Tim and I with our Klingon 'friend'...

Ok, so I know that this isn't an actual filming location but it's as close as I'm ever going to come to being on Star Trek's Deep Space Nine.  My hubby and I went to Las Vegas with a group of our friends and we *dragged* them all with us to the Star Trek Experience at the Las Vegas Hilton.  Our friends are decidedly less 'geeky' than the two of us are, but they warmed up to it by the end...

It was a bit pricy, but the entire experience is a wonderful one.  I've been a few times before, but every couple of years (or days?) they have a new 'sequence' to the action on the set so you really get a new experience each time.  This time, as we were standing in line to go in (and reading the history of the Star Trek world which is on the walls) we were accosted by a Klingon!  Luckily we got a picture.

After the 'Experience' we took our friends to 'Quark's Bar' where we proceeded to get nicely drunk... If you go you MUST order the Warp Core Breach.  I've since gotten a recipe (bootleg I'm sure) for it, and it is 6 kinds of rum, some punch and a bunch of dry ice.  They serve it in this large glass bowl with several straws in it and everyone shares.  Be careful though, while it may be innocent tasting there is a LOT of alcohol in it and you will get drunk.  Try some of their cheese sticks to help absorb your alcohol before you get back on the monorail.
