Tony Denera


I met Nichelle when I was a pre-board screener at Burbank Airport in 1994-95. She had trouble getting through the metal detector because of all the jewelry she was wearing. To avoid the hassle I said to her:“Why didn’t you beam up and take the Enterprise.” Her response: “Where’s Scotty when you need him.” Cool lady with a great sense of humor. Loved her. That experience and others are featured in my book “JOINING ARNOLD: Rise of the Girlie Man” on Amazon.
