Is Something Missing In My Life?

by Lisa Donovan

When I see articles like this one, I feel like one of the most passion-less people around.  How come I don’t have something that I have latched onto as strongly as these people.  I don’t yearn to be a trekkie, but their absolute commitment to their cause is something I stand in awe of. 

New Voyages

On a sweltering Saturday afternoon in Port Henry, N.Y., James Cawley works on what looks like a Hollywood set. His life-sized replica of the USS Enterprise bridge sits in what used to be a used car dealership on the outskirts of town.

“My day job as [an Elvis impersonator] has paid for ninety percent of this,” says Crawley.

Cawley and his crew of volunteers have gotten so good at making episodes — they’ve finished three so far — that they’ve started luring Trek icons to Port Henry.

Doesn’t it make you feel like you waste a lot of time?  Ok, maybe not.  But the point is that, as silly as it may seem to most of us to recreate a Star Trek episode, it still takes a lot of… something.. what that something is, I’m not sure.  But I admire anyone who works this hard for something they love.
