An obsessed Star Trek fan flew all the way from Germany to Los Angeles just to dine at his favourite alien's new restaurant.
The young Trekker was flown to Hollywood for dinner at actress Jeri Ryan's French restaurant Ortolan as an 18th birthday gift.
Ryan, who played SEVEN OF NINE in TV series STAR TREK: VOYAGER, says, "I didn't know he was coming and I was working at the time. He came three nights in a row.
"On the last night, I stopped by and he was so sweet. He told me all the Seven of Nine stuff he had at home, which included a life-sized statue of me. Not a stand-up cutout, a statue. He sent me a picture of it. It's frightening."
