A friend that I met through ST writing went to a big Trek convention in Las Vegas where Robin Curtis (Saavik) appeared with a lot of other Trek stars. Martha took a copy of the Race of Cain book and showed it to Robin.
SHE SHOWED IT TO ROBIN!
Martha sent me this email:
She was so interested in you. I spent 15 minutes trying to explain our
relationship, how the book is fan fiction not professionally
published, she wanted to know where you live, where I live,
why we hadn't met, why you were not there, how long you had
writing, why I hadn't "dragged" you to Vegas to meet her? Why
don't we go to an East Coast Con and see her? Sheesh her
handler was pissed by the time we left.
