Part 2 - I also got the impression that the "20th Anniversary" tag seemed to be an afterthought, other being mentioned a couple of times, there wasn't anything in the program. Speaking of programs, that was the only souvenir I was able to take away from the event. The program was a black and white single sheet summary with an ad for the next upcoming conventions in other cities, and an ad for next year's convention. The location of the convention wasn't great either. Unless you had a car -- which I didn't, it wasn't easy to get around. The hotel was surrounded by large box stores, and not much else. There were few sidewalks for walkers. It was an interesting experience to say that I went to a Star Trek convention, but I don't think I'll attend another one anytime soon.

I gave the event two stars. It wasn't great, but it wasn't bad. Having been to a couple of comic conventions, I was expecting something along those lines. Unfortunately, the Star Trek convention seemed more like a "one-ride carnival show". The vendors area was very small. After the two minutes it took to explore the vendors area, there was nothing left to do but sit around waiting for various actors to make their appearances -- I was not interested in paying for someone's autograph, so it was a lot of sitting and waiting. Some actors were better than others. I thought Nana Visitor was the best -- she seemed the most pleasant. I also enjoyed Michael Dorn's session. Cirroc Lofton put me to sleep. I found Avery Brooks to be very cold. He spent most of his stage time pacing back and forth like a caged tiger. He did try to warm up to the audience, but in my opinion, I don't think he succeeded. He was too blunt, and too many questions were answered with one word answers.
a nice gathering...good to see the ds9 crew but seeing everyone else was the best part!
Me and Joe need to catch that Vegas convention! (next year..... so we can have time to budget things out).

Any one attending ROCCON this Sunday at the Mercery Grand Hotel in Poughkeepsie?
I will be there tuning a panel on the use of the military in Star Trek and have a fan group table for the U.S.S. Iwo Jima, The Independent Star Trek Fan Group.
Cost is $5.00 per person.
Hope see a few of there.

Thanks for the heads up about the "difference" between CreCon and ComicCon. I'll try to keep my nitpicking to a minimum. I'll see you this Friday.

Joel, I am afraid for any Creations Convention you do not get anything like at ComicCon. Also will be at Friday's Meet Up?
After a bit of difficulty, my convention ticket just arrived via email. Actually, it is basically nothing more than my name and a barcode on a plain white sheet of paper. For this they charged me an extra $8 "processing fee"? I hope there is more when I arrive. At ComiCon,, attendees received plastic badges, with a lanyard, and a glossy convention magazine. Sorry guys,, it is too early to be a killjoy.
Problem resolved. I just ordered my ticket by phone. Now that all the arrangements have been made, I have something to really look forward to in the coming weeks.P
Has anyone else had difficulty with trying to purchase their tickets online?
I've never been to a Star Trek Convention. I'm looking forward to the experience.
