San Franciscan's love an excuse to get into costume, and this weekend was a bonanza for fantasy fans. This weekend the Star Trek Convention rolled into town and dedicated fans of the show donned their best Bridge-worthy uniforms and Klingon foreheads. Fans were especially pumped for the captains of the Enterprise to meet on stage: William Shatner, who played Captain James T. Kirk on the original series came face to face with Sir Patrick Stewart, who played Captain Jean-Luc Picard on Star Trek: The Next Generation. Check out pics of the fandom here and read Anna McCarthy's play by play of the event here and here.
Trekkies weren't the only ones combing their closets for an appropriate outfit this weekend, though. Enthusiasts of lace, corsets and monocles grabbed their best parasols and strutted their stuff at the anual Edwardian Ball. More shots of the lovely spectacle here and here and a spirited account of the merry-making here.
