"When We Were Trekkies #7 - Flying With Icarus" By Joe Sikoryak
Jonny throws caution to the wind and invites several school friends to join the fun at the 1975 Star Trek Lives! convention. He and Tom are soon committed to preparing nine costumes for the Masquerade, and a handful more “just for fun.” The mounting pressure proves to be anything but fun, and threatens everything they’ve worked for over the past year. Including their friendship—and Jonny’s budding relationship with Ani.
When We Were Trekkies is created by Joe Sikoryak, who attended some of the first conventions of the 1970s. His memoir blends awkward adolescence, nerdish spectacle and a generous spirit of adventure. While certain details are fictionalized, the costumes, festivities and unbridled passions are completely authentic.
