Fan Party
On September 8, 1991 -- the 25th Anniversary of "Star Trek," a number of fans visiting from overseas, as well as some of us who worked with Gene, got together at the Old Spaghetti Factory in Hollywood to celebrate the occasion. Although it was a joyous occasion, Gene was too ill to attend; it was somehow not complete without him there to share it with us. But at exactly 8:00 -- the same hour as the show's premiere back in 1966 --we telephoned him at home and all yelled into the phone, "Happy Anniversary, Gene!!"
