Hey everyone!!

The Vegas convention will be my first big one. I just purchased the Captain's chair package and I was wondering what the Dessert parties have been like in the past.

I would really like to read your stories about them.

Thanks and I can't wait to see everyone there!!!

Well I guess no one is going to tell you! I have never been to a convention either and the one in Las Vegas will be my first.  I was hoping that some one would be willing to share their convention experience too :o)

It seems that not many people come this category of the message boards.  It must be just us new people that are coming to the convention.  I would also be interested in finding out what other events they had in the past.  One member remembered something about a Breakfast with Neelix event...that's sounds cool too.  Oh Well, how bad can it be right?  Afterall, we'll be in Vegas...we'll be having dessert...and hopefully there will be a Star Trek actor to entertain us (and if we're lucky a really cute actor)!  How can a girl go wrong with that?

I attended the dessert party and have to admit, it was pretty disappointing.  Really.  However, the breakfasts in the morning are a definate.  You should book a breakfast or two and a silent auction. You get more time with the individual actors and ghas a more intimate feel.  

If you want more info, you should visit www.trekcon.com.  Its a site that come out of a whole lot of us who visited last year and hit it off real well.  You will get a lot more opinions.

But you're right.  You will be in Vegas, at a Star Trek convention, having dessert or breakfast.  You will have one hell of a time.  I loved it and will return for sure.

I attended the Desert party at the Vegas 2006 Convention . I would say it was a great time for the Ladies. The guests were Trip and Reed.

I was at a table with three ladies  when the boys made there entrance. Moments later I and the other men present noticed we were alone at the tables. :D I and others moved to the bars in the room. The guys were very funny and all the ladies seemed to enjoy meeting them.

I think that the celebrities mingling through the crowds would be pretty cool.
However Im looking forward to hanging out with cool trekkers
and meeting people from around the globe.
I hope that I wont be dissapointed!!

Well, I like both Reed & Trip but I'm into meeting "real" guys too, so after I get a look at the actors I will also be migrating to the bars :o)
