Star Trek: Tara Midtgaard with Nichelle Nichols aka Lt Nyota Uhura My love for science fiction and Star Trek in particular, came from my mother. My formative elementary years happened in the 70’s when there were only a few TV channels and we only had a black and white TV. The television was always on what my mother wanted to watch. It was always Star Trek or some sort of science fiction. Initially I was annoyed with my mother because I thought she was just watching Trek because Captain Kirk was handsome (he still is at 90!).

Channele Luis aka Khiq Cosplay, guest blogger for the fandombar.com Community bLog December 5th, 2015. Leaving the Sports Center where the inaugural Great American Comic Con Las Vegas (GACCLV) was taking place, I approached my car and saw an advertising postcard under my windshield wiper. Black, blue and a round logo with a zeppelin in the middle stating that cosplayers received a discount on drinks. Fast forward to today, just shy of the exact date 5 years ago I walked into Millennium Fandom Bar for the first time. Some of you may know me as Chan, others as Channele, and still others...
