Wizard World Comic Con

Don't forget to email Wizard World about the Portland Comic Con and ask for a Star Trek star to be invited.

Here is the website. http://www.wizardworld.com/home-portland.html

My guess is that given the stars and types of people attending, it may still be a good place to have a table to let others know about our meet-up.

    I'm a long-time veteran of many other sci-fi conventions, but this was my first Comic Con and I had a terrific time! I think the autograph and photo ops were too expensive, but then I'm a little old school from back in the day when the guest speakers were actually thankful for their fans and signed and took photos with them in appreciation as part of the convention experience that their fans had already paid for, so I guess times have changed. The con itself, though, GREAT! Lots of comic, sci-fi, fantasy, and geek culture, it was a blast!

    The con was very cool. Looking forward to Seattle next week.

    Sunday Data (Yes, pun intended!)

    I finally found the info for when and where Brent Spiner will be speaking at Wizard World Comic Con:


    3:00 – 3:45PM BRENT SPINER Q&A
    Known by most for his portrayal of the android Data in Star Trek: The Next Generation, Brent Spiner has spent a career in entertainment, not just in television and film, but on the theatre stage as well as being a musician. Come with your questions, because Brent has your answers as well as few stories to tell in the Q&A session. (ROOM C124)

    You KNOW there will be a line. I plan on getting in line right after lunch!

      I bought my ticket for Sunday - plan to arrive around Noon.

      I am here at the con. [masked] if you want to meet up today.

    Anybody want to meetup around 8 tonight for dinner, after Comic Con ends for the day?

  • Ilana L.

    Costume Catastrophe!

    I have to make another run to Fabric Depot now, so I don’t think I will be there tonight. Hope to be there on Saturday and Sunday rested and well-dressed! Anyone care to get together for lunch tomorrow?

    Hey, everybody coming on Friday, do you want to meet at the J Cafe? The address is 533 Northeast Holladay Street #101, it is a great little cafe 2 blocks away from the convention center. I was thinking we could meet at 2:15. I'll be there, if anyone wants to meet me.

    Unfortunately not in the budget. See you at Emerald City! =)

    February 18, 2013

  • Chris R.

    Due to budget restraints, primarily due to shifting financially to Emerald City Comic Con, I will be unable to attend this weekend. I hope all of you that are able to attend have a wonderful time, and that this becomes an opportunity for many of you to make new friends, and enjoy yourselves at the con! I would love to see some pictures posted here from group members.

    February 18, 2013

  • Joey G.

    For those of us attending on Friday, should we meet before the con? Are we going to at least some of the events together? That would be cool.

    February 18, 2013

    • Ilana L.

      Sounds like a great idea. I have never been to the center. Maybe someone who knows it could suggest a spot to get together...

    Well, I won't be able to go on Friday or Saturday, but I can on Sunday. If anyone is interested, Living Social has a great deal on the Sunday ticket for $39 plus you get 3 signed lithographs by Mike Grell, Arthur Suydam, and Michael Golden https://www.livingsocial.com/deals/613756?ref=conf-jp&rpi=105110882

      I'd be interested in going Sunday only if others are going that day. I definitely want to see Data and he's only going to be there on those days. Not sure what times.... Would you keep me in the loop?

      See my post about Sunday Data!

    Lunch Together?
    I will be attending all 3 days. Since we missed the window regarding the table, should we get together and have lunch? I am a repeated convention attender (pun intended). I am saving my funds for getting Sir Patrick's autograph at Emerald City. (I already have Brent's, but if you don't you might want to sign up.)

    I am working on my costume, but it will be a close call since I am attending the Tribble making party on Monday.

    FYI I will be handing out biz cards in order to get interviews for the book I am writing about Star Trek and disabilities. I want to interview at least 100 Star Trek fans with disabilities.

    If you have any questions or suggestions about my book, be sure to send me an email. [masked]

    Does anyone know the general area the table will be?

    February 16, 2013

  • Ilana L.

    It looks like we will be having a table as a fan group for our members (and maybe we will add a few to our group). I have emailed Jenna about her offer to provide discount tickets for us! Exciting!

    Please let me know if you can sit at the table for at least an hour or two during the weekend. I talked with Chris last night, and it looks like I am going to try and organize this part of the event for us!

    direct email is

      I haven't heard back from Jenna, so I would suggest we assume that we won't have a table this time after all. Sorry folks. I should have responded to her faster.

      February 13, 2013

    • kent m.

      I'm brand new to your group but I will be there all three days and would gladly help out, and meet some fellow super fans

      February 16, 2013

  • LauraH

    I can go on Sunday

    Were hotel rooms booked yet for the weekend? (that we would all share the cost of, of course)

    February 9, 2013

    • Charles F. R.

      I live locally, so not planning to pay for a room. Are there evening room parties or something ?

      Actually Joey is referring to Emerald City Comic Con.

    OMG! I just got the announcement that Brent Spiner, (Lt. Commander Data) will be a guest at this convention.

    See what happens when you bug people! LOL

    If you can only attend one day, be sure it is the day when you can meet Data!

  • Ilana L.

    I got a response to my email! (I had to edit my email for space.)

    Thank you, we’ll look into this. -SS

    Subject: Portland Comic Con

    Hello Wizard World,

    There is a HUGE Star Trek fan base up here. The local folks put on
    Star Trek in the Park! I think the Portland Con should include at
    least one Star Trek series star!

      Now if only they would let me know about a table
