BEAM ME UP, SCOTTY ... AT 15TH AND MONTANA


The stars were out last night at the Whole Foods on Montana ... or at least one of them was. Sort of. There I was, minding my own business, when I ran into someone I thought I knew standing in front of me at the cash register. We said "Hello" to each other, but I kept thinking "How do I know her ...?" And then it dawned on me: I recognized her from Star Trek: The Next Generation. She played a smart and sophisticated Space Botanist. Later research revealed that her name is Rosalind Chao and she's been in a lot of TV shows and movies. As she left, she smiled and said to the cashier: "No one earns what they deserve except those who don't deserve it!" The cashier readily agreed, but I just stood there looking confused. I always thought Star Fleet took good care of its people ...!

Oh yeah, Keiko O'Brian. I remember her in the scene when Worf had to help deliver her baby! That was funny.

Maybe Keiko took a pay cut when she went from the Enterprise to DS9. -Cin
