Mid-Michigan doctor embraces inner Trekkie

Posted: Updated:
GRAND BLANC, MI (WNEM) -

Dr. Ann Burton has loved Star Trek ever since it was first televised 50 years ago.

"I've loved all different versions," Burton said.

Her patients know she loves the sci-fi institution. One of them, Sara Browning, dresses up in Star Trek gear whenever she has an appointment with Burton.

"I kind of got away from it over the years then I came in here and which she urged me to watch the next generation. I was like 'I don't want to watch that,'" Browning said.

However, Browning watched it and now she's hooked.

Burton said her favorite character is Uhura, because she is a woman in a leadership position.

"The way it was originally written, that was very inspiring," Burton said.
