The leaders of an armed group who seized a national wildlife refuge in rural Oregon were acquitted Thursday, Oct. 27, 2016 in the 41-day standoff that brought new attention to a long-running dispute over control of federal lands in the U.S. West. A jury found brothers Ammon and Ryan Bundy not guilty a firearm in a federal facility and conspiring to impede federal workers from their jobs at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge, 300 miles southeast of Portland where the trial took place. Five co-defendants also were tried one or both of the charges. (Multnomah County Sheriff via AP, File)

Star Trek has always had a special place in my heart. Yes, the effects were cheesy, but I loved the adventure and the themes of the series. And to this day, when I see an episode of the original series, I can picture my grandfather sitting next to me with a huge bowl of popcorn or ice-cream in his lap.

I had the pleasure of speaking to Walter Koenig, aka Ensign Pavel Chekov or original Star Trek fame today after the show. He’s coming to Seattle for the Emerald City Comic Convention (I am hosting his panel at 1pm on Saturday). I talked to him about the huge success of Star Trek, his favorite scenes, how the creature entered his ear in Wrath of Khan(embedded below), his upcoming projects, and his self-described “best acting performance” at the age of 12.

I’ll be playing portions of it tomorrow during the show, but you can get a head start and listen to the full interview here.
