I was 10 years old and my dad flew us to Florida for a conference, and when we got to the hotel there was no bed for my sister and I. They put two cots in a conference room and it had a big-screen TV. It was freezing cold out, so we couldn’t go anywhere. They were playing a 24-hour Star Trek marathon on TV, and I’d never seen it before. I sat there in amazement and watched the entire marathon. That was my introduction to sci-fi and the series. I loved all the episodes with Harry Mudd.
George Takei was my favorite of all the Star Trek guys that visited, and he was a fascinating, interesting man,” he adds. “My favorite who never visited, but I spoke to on the phone many times, was Leonard Nimoy, who I found to be very sharp and bright.
I’ll definitely miss the theater most when the home sells, that’s my favorite part,” Bell says. “The next would be my bar and arcade. My favorite game of all time there is Atari football. The house is being sold empty; the theater stays intact, obviously. Everything else goes. But if someone wants to pay me double, then we’ll have the conversation!Mark Belle Interview with SyFy Wire
