Just got done meeting with Susan, a fellow Trekkie, here in Oklahoma City. She brought along a CD with outstanding photos of a 40th anniversary Star Trek convention held in Las Vegas just this past August. According to folder names on the disk, I saw she made quite a journey of it and even got to Roswell. She said it was a great trip and really enjoyed herself. Good for you, Susan. Talking with her about meeting with other trekkies in Oklahoma City, I was shocked to learn of how little interest there seems to be in the area. That's too bad. I showed her photos I had taken over the past few years at conventions, including James Doohan's last one. We talked briefly about a Star Trek book I'm working on. Got to reminisce about the many series and movies, and just had a good time visiting. Trekkies in OKC (and I know you're out there) missed out. I know Susan would like to organize time for trekkies to get together if only people in the Oklahoma City area would show some interest, so I want to take this opportunity to encourage you to get together and share notes, pictures, memories, etc. Susan's got a lot of good stories to tell and is very well versed on all things Star Trek. If you're in the Oklahoma City area and would like to be a part of a trekkie group, feel free to email me and I'll let Susan know of your interest.

I went to the "conversation" (basically an on-stage
interview) between Leonard Nimoy and Gene Wilder. Win
took me. Ahna was with us too. It was very interesting. I
got to (very briefly) talk to Leonard Nimoy, but his
entourage wisked him away pretty fast, dang it. Had to
change my leave to get to LA a day earlier than planned
(no small task), Win bought the tickets, then all I basically
got to say was "Hello." and he was gone. Well, at least
I got to visit with Win De Lugo and Ahna Capri. They're
two of the nicest people you'd ever want to meet. We had a
good time together.
|Win De Lugo|
Win's current work is in the independent film Touching Down [poster] in which he co-stars as Ted Rhodes, an overprotective father highlighting the dangers of life to his timid and insecure daughter, Sam Rhodes. The film will be making the rounds at the 7th annual Method Fest Independent Film Festival in L.A. (Calabasas) from April 1st through April 8th, 2005. For more information on "Touching Down" go to touchingdown.com.
Paradise almost killed Win. After Star Trek, Mission: Impossible and Dragnet appearances, he left L.A. in '69 to shoot his own movie in the Virgin Islands. He lost his financing, one home burned down and hurricane Hugo destroyed two more before he landed parts in "Caribe" (thanks to Star Trek), a short lived Stacy Keach/Carl Franklin TV series, Bare Essentials, a M.O.W., and Weekend at Bernie's II, which enabled his 1993 return to Hollywood.
In the '60's, Win studied acting with Stella Adler in NYC. He was singled out for praise in the NY Times (11/23/64) by members of the Moscow Art Theatre, visiting NY to assess US understanding of Stanislavsky's technique (in which the artist is required to live the role). "This minor scene was genuine, realistic art that produced a great impression." --- Vasily Toporkov. While appearing as Dirk (the gigolo) on the soap "Love of Life", he worked as assistant manager at all Rugoff Theatres in NYC, this brought him up to speed on great foreign films. After getting glowing reviews in stock, he landed a part on "Trials of O'Brien" opposite Peter Falk, but slept through his first morning "call". Mortified and feeling he had blown it in NYC, it was time to catch "the first thing smoking" and head for the West Coast. While appearing opposite Leslie Parrish in The Adding Machine and Ahna Capri in Period of Adjustment at the Holmes Repertory Theatre in Los Angeles, Jocelyn Brando (yes, HIS sister) said "Goodbye Win, I'm leaving the Co., going to New York. I got a part on "Love of Life". He stammered... "I just left that show to come here!?!?" "Idiot," she responded, "don't you know what those things pay?". Receiving a beautiful review in Variety for his stage work in "Zoo Story" while appearing on Star Trek, Judd: For the Defence, Custer, Dragnet, etc. he decided the next logical step was to shoot his own independent film in the Virgin Islands (for great production value!) Sounded good... you know the rest. While licking his wounds between fire and hurricanes, he created the U.S. Virgin Islands Film Commission (5th in the U.S.) bringing millions of dollars into the islands by luring hundreds of national commercials plus features like The Island of Dr. Moreau (Burt Lancaster), Four Seasons (Alan Alda), Christopher Columbus (Brando) etc.
For more about Win, see the interview he kindly granted me about his Star Trek experiences.

"Whatever else history may say about me when I'm gone, I hope it will record that I appealed to your best hopes, not your worst fears; to your confidence rather than your doubts. My dream is that you will travel the road ahead with liberty's lamp guiding your steps and opportunity's arm steadying your way." --- Ronald Reagan
You are greatly missed! --- Curtis Fox

I continue to get requests from companies about advertising on this site, and the answer is still the same, NO. I don't know how I can make it more clear than that. It has never been my intention to make this a business site. IT IS MY HOBBY. I have spent many dollars and hours on this hobby, and the only compensation that matters at all to me is knowing you're enjoying it. Hundreds of you have expressed your gratitude to me, and I greatly appreciate your kindness and compliments. --- Curtis - August 5, 2004
ViaCom has shut down many unofficial Star Trek sites due to the need to protect their copyrights. Several of these sites were making money from what is not legally theirs. However, most of us operate within the 'fair and acceptable use principles'. Personally, this is my hobby and I intend no damage whatsoever to Paramount's rights of ownership. I'm thankful I have not been targeted by them. This site is available only as a tribute to Star Trek and those who brought it to life. Live Long and Prosper.
