I am!  I am!  I can't wait!  This will be my first con and I'm going a looooong way to be there.  I'll fly from SC to NJ to a friend's, then she and I are driving to Valley Forge to the con and spend the night there.  It's too much excitement - I'll never make it another 10 weeks!   :o)

I'm in Camp Hill, PA, a couple hours from Philly. Can y'all give me details about this con or where I can find info.  I saw a convention in Maryland in July, but that's way off.

I'll be there and it will be my first convention too!! My sister is coming with me.  Did you see the guest line-up?  All the TNG actors except Patrick Stewart.  And I emailed the man in charge of the convention with a bunch of newbie questions and also asked about Stewart.  He told me that they've talked to Patrick about coming, but he said that he didn't want to commit so far in advance and he would give an answer later, so there's a chance he could be there too!  Also Robert Beltran, Robert Picardo, and Dwight Schultz will be there along with many non-Trek stars.  The convention head also told me that everyone who is there will be scheduled to speak as well.  I'm so excited!

I'll be there.  Driving up from NC for the two days.  Thought I'd never get to see LaVar.  If they could only get Colm Meany (or however you spell his name).

Just? As opposed to what? Sorry, this is my first convention. What will I be missing at this one that others have?

Also, will it be appropriate to wear a uniform at this one?

I think there won't be guest talks.
I do think you can always wear your uniform. I was at the London Expo a year ago, that was also an autograph event, but I saw people wearing uniforms there. I don't think it would be a problem.
p.s. if you and others go, could you give us a detailed report after you've returned? Also with piccies, if possible?

That would be great!

This is my first convention with Star Trek actors. I'm very excited. :) I was curious, if anyone knows how much the autographs might cost?? I know that Jonathan Frakes autograph at the Las Vegas is like $60, would that be the same at this one in Valley Forge?? I'm a total newbie to this... lol

Ok, another stupid question, lol. Has anyone ever been to the B&L Productions - Autograph Convention before? I was curious how the autograph lines work and if it would be likely for me to get an autograph, I mean... I don't want to miss out on meeting some of them (I do plan on getting there VERY early) but there's never a guarantee that it would happen... I was just curious if there were a lot of people who went to these and what the lines are like... I do know about the virtual line, but this is my first convention (besides going to Wizard World Philly last year, but that seems different from this and obviously not as big, seeing as no Star Trek actors were there :P), so I'm a little nervous and unsure about how this works... (oh and we didn't get tickets ahead of time as we found out like 2 days ago and we are hoping to be there early to get tickets at the door! hope it doesnt sell out... :/)
