I [James Lileks] met them all later at the press-only tour of the Trek exhibit. Go on, laugh if you care, but this was a Great Event in my life up to this point - to see them all assembled in this place, and shake their hands afterwards: nerd nirvana. It was like the Ultimate Geek World Series team with DiMaggio and Koufax and Aaron and the rest.
Nimoy had the Spock groove going the entire time; Shatner was humbled:
They were all the nicest people, except for You Know Who; he breezed in and out and hit the limo. Everyone else stayed and slopped up the gush with genuine smiles. Happy day.
