Star Trek red carpet pics, It's Always Sunny interviews and finally, my interview with Ming-Na

Last night was one of the coolest ever for a geek chick like me. I got to attend the Star Trek DVD/Blu-ray release red carpet at the Griffith Observatory. And Spock was there! Both of them! I'll have a bunch of pieces coming up, but in the meantime, I have pics from the red carpet. (Scroll down to see!)

It doesn't look like this when I see it from my hike.

Sorry this one is short, but I've been typing up interviews all day. And an R.I.P piece for Ken Ober, the host of Remote Control who died yesterday at the age of 52. Sigh. It means I'm older than I like to admit, and that I once loved cheesy TV. (Check out the post in my Forces of Geek column "It's Geek to Me" HERE)

R.I.P. Ken Ober! Thanks for all the laughs...and the chips.

Huffington Post finally ran my interview with the lovely and surprisingly geeky Ming-Na. You know I'm always thrilled to find another girl geek. And I'm absolutely loving SGU. Check it out, and tell me what you think. (And I'm only telling you this because you're my friends, but I used to watch her way back when she was on As the World Turns. Don't tell anyone I was girly enough to watch soaps in the past. I had chicken pox for two weeks as a teen and I got hooked.)

Ming-Na used to play as an elf in Dungeons & Dragons!

I also had two pieces from It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia run today. In the first, "'It's Always Sunny' When Danny DeVito is Naked On Christmas" we learn about their upcoming Xmas special, and about the naked elves and asses we'll get to see.

The cast of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia. Strangely enough, they cut the word "penis" from my article, but left in "dick towel". Huh.

In the second, "'It's Always Sunny...' Cast Picks the Weirdest Holiday Movies" I ask one of my weird questions, "What's the weirdest or worst Christmas movie you've ever seen?" Look, I worked in retail for years. Christmas makes me shudder. If I hear "Santa Baby" one more time, I'm going to slap the next guy dressed as Santa that I pass. Just saying.

Anyway, enjoy the pics. I'm spending the rest of the night prepping for a set visit. Can't tell you what yet, but I will as soon as they pull the gun away from my head. Night!

Karl Urban, "Bones" in Star Trek. And "Black Hat" in the upcoming film, Priest.

The man himself, JJ Abrams.

Spock in a cardigan. Not sure why that weirds me out.

Can't believe he was here!!!!

Zoe Saldana loves being a kick ass chick.

John Cho...I caught the poor dear with a strange expression. Not his fault I'm a sucky photog.

Spock Prime!!! And I didn't do the salute. I tried to play it cool.

Green Star Trek chicks.

Griffith Observatory, all Trekked out...I mean, decked out. ;)
