Great Footage of 1975 Trek Convention

Rich Portnoy has posted on YouTube some terrific footage he shot on 8mm film at a Star Trek convention in Chicago in 1975. There's no sound, but the images are just priceless. Nichelle Nichols with an afro is fantastic, and everyone looks legitimately happy to be there. I love the internet!


  1. Love the Pre-TMP ridgeless Klingons. It's a real shame there's no sound on this.

  2. One of those slightly freaky reminders of just how long Star Trek has been around. I mean, the actors aging somehow doesn't have the same impact.
