Selik Meets Russell Bates
I was there as the stuck-up Vulcan, Selik, in a costume my wonderful wife was nagged at, to finish in time.
This overexposed picture nevertheless shows the masking-tape-and-latex ears that were self-applied in the bathroom. Also the Vulcanian eyebrows, the result of shaving off the outside ends of the brows and spirit-gumming the resultant shavings.
The Banquet had a yummy repast. But, being Vulcan, ol' snooty Selik ate only vegetables.
It was also pretty darn hot in that big enclosed space, which also contained the indoor pool. However, Selik professed to find the heat (if not the humidity) refreshing.
What a doofus!
One of the guests at BabelCon 1 was Russell Bates, most famous to Trekkers as the author of the animated STAR TREK episode, "How Sharper Than a Serpent's Tooth."
