    I happened to see the other day the Bing Bang Theory episode where Wil Wheaton goes to a Star Wars first-day showing dressed as a blue-shirted Vulcan, walking down the aisle to choruses of boos.

    I say "happened to see". The Canadian Comedy Network has been showing Big Bang Theory continuously since Dec 22. Looks like it finally ends 6am tomorrow morning. (On the other hand, I have not been recording nor watching continuously). Turns out it's 11 days, one season each day.

    I'm not sure why they play a tragedy series on the Comedy Network.

    I decided to re-watch the DS9 episode "In the Pale Moonlight"......even if you haven't seen the episodes leading up to this one, it's really easy to understand what's happening, and it's a DAMN good episode. Probably Avery Brook's greatest performance as well.

    IMO it's the best episode of the DS9 series.

    And I did actually meet him... he came to work to appear on a show, if you wanted something signed you were suppose to put it in a pile that he would do.
    I actually went into the green room and said hello and asked him to sign it. Had about 1 minute, then left him, he didnt need some crazy fan harassing him too much (just a little is ok!)

    You didn't go to a trekkie convention? So you really did just meet Patrick Stewart..., Not Capt. Picard...

    Anyway, still something I hope would happen to me someday...

    The key with meeting famous people in a professional environment is just that: to be professional. You canít go all twee on them when youíre both supposed to be working.

    I had many potentially great opportunities to meet Dwayne Johnson, and Iíve found myself standing next to Kylie Minogue and Alexandra Daddario at various times. But I couldnít start smothering them with love. Just give them a nod and ask how their day is going. Theyíre literally a co-worker at that moment. Treat them as such.

    Agreed. I worked as an extra on a movie set with John Goodman, and many of the other extras were going a bit crazy and I was like "we're here to do a job" and treated it as such.

    I also met Hulk Hogan when I worked at Gateway computers, he's taller than I expected.

    This was when I was working at a tv station - yes you need to be professional. But probably even more so when they are a guest.
    I have had my head between a newsreaders legs while we were in an ad break...
    hint - never mount a router under the desk on set, someone will bump the power cord with their knee. I didnt put it there, just had to fix it while the show was on-air.
