My first star I saw in person was William Shatner on April 4, 1987. He appeared
in Omaha at a "World of Wheels Expo".
He didn't sign autographs (of course) but shook hands with everyone. The staff
did give out promo sheets to the fans with Mr. Shatner portraying "Kirk" from Star
Trek-The Motion Picture and T.J. Hooker (Mr. Shanter portrayed a police officer
in a television series of the same name).
