King Abdullah's 'Investigations'


K is for King Abdullah. Star Trek Voyagers 'Investigations' episode is quite the surprise. In 1996, a Jordanian Star Trek fan was but a mere Prince. He landed a non-speaking role in Star Trek Voyager as a Science Officer. When Moral Officer Neelix strikes up a conversation with Harry Kim, Science Officer Abdullah departs the scene rather quickly.

7 years later Jordan's avid Star Trek fan is a King! Apparently he was visiting the States as part of a military delegation and had to stopover in L.A. A friend offered to arrange for the prince to visit Voyagers' film set and try on a uniform.

'Then the next thing, when I actually showed up, they said that if you want, you can stand in. So it wasn't planned, it just turned out that way. I had a great time.'

How cool is this? Are you a fan of Star Trek Voyager? Do you wear costumes to Star trek conventions?

If I ever had the opportunity to go to a Star Trek convention I'd wear a costume, I just don't know which one.

And yes, I enjoyed Star Trek Voyager.

That's cool he got to be on the show. I'd jump at the chance. I liked Voyager even more after watching all the episodes again on NetFlix.

That IS a really cool fact! I would love to have been an extra on any of the Star Trek shows.

What a neat experience and definitely something to tell one's kids about. A friend of mine is a HUGE Star Trek Fan and would love to have had that chance. Your Blog is really Trektastic!
Congrats on making it through Week #2. Thanks for your visit and comment on my AtoZ 'fiction from forgotten fotos'.

Oh man that's awesome! As a kid, I'd have died of happiness at the chance. Haven't spent much time with Star Trek as an adult though. Your blog is lovely :)

I did have a red shirt top, 100 percent polyester. I already had the pin from a Star Trek store in the mall. Good times.
Can't wear the shirt anymore.
