Default Cruise Documentary With a Twist

I watched a show yesterday called "Cruise Trek", a documentary/reality piece about a theme cruise involving Star Trek actors. It aired on Space, Canada's equivalent to the Sci-Fi Channel. There were 8 or 10 "personalities" on the sailing, mostly supporting cast (some unrecognizable without make-up), who had a blast, drank, ate and stayed in suites in exchange for hob-nobbing with the fans. The ship was the Veendam, doing a western Caribbean itinerary. The show was ruined by a poor Shatner-impersonator doing voice-over. I'm not a Trekker (they hate being called Trekkies) so I only recognized a couple of the actors: Neelix & the Doctor from S.T. Voyager and the guy who plays "Q" from S.T. The Next Generation. They appeared quite polite to the "common folk".

I want to be on the next version of this cruise.
I await this programme in NZ.
I am not afraid to admit that I am a Trekker.

I remember someone posting that had gone on this cruise. I guess there are a lot of theme cruises out there! I think Q was one of the best characters.My dh always said they should make a series involving his character.

How did I miss that?? I've seen some weird things on Space Channel, including some really bad old episodes of Star Trek!

I was just looking at the picture "Fig. 3 Trekkers usually huddle together for warmth and comfort." and it is good to see the variaty of people who are trekkers lol.
