You didn't have to go to the final frontier to enjoy “Star Trek” this weekend. Hundreds of fans met Star Trek actors at the Star Trek convention in SeaTac.

There were plenty of photo ops for devoted fans decked out in Star Trek costumes, like Denise Gross, who’s been watching the series since the 1960s.

“When we were in trouble and couldn't watch TV, the only thing we could watch was Star Trek,” said Shaundra Gross, Denise Gross’s daughter. “We could watch it with her. She's a real fan.”

“They thought it was trouble,” said Denis. “It wasn't punishment or anything."
        
In addition to scoring some cool autographed pictures, fans could shop to their hearts delight for Star Trek action figures, t-shirts and photos from the TV shows and films.
