My pleasure.

One more thing, I forgot:

Catherine Hicks discussed how she 'felt' around for the Klingon ship that was cloaked in the park...she said it helped she took Mime 101 in school.

Also, she told a cute story about the transporter. She asked Shatner and Nimoy (before they filmed the scene where she was transported aboard) -- in all seriousness -- what it felt like to be transported? They kind of looked at her a bit strangely and answered her -- also in all seriousness -- it tingles!

And a story about how she told Stephen Collins her Trek movie was better than his.

OK, I have a couple of quick questions:
1) I've been to a couple of the big cons, but not a big "Trek" con. How are the lines to panels & other events in Vegas? Also,
2) what kind of socialization goes on outside of the official activities? ¿One of my favorite things about the other events I've been to was the playtime with the other fans.

I'm asking about this stuff because, obviously, I'm debating whether or not to check out Vegas, and would like some more input. I'd really like to be convinced, so get to arm-twisting ¿:kiss:

For registr. the line is kind of long. But it's a 1 time thing. Then, if you have assigned seats there are no lines. You go to your seat each day. There's a secondary room each day w/lesser known speakers but they're often very interesting. No assigned seats but no lines or problem getting a good seat.

Autographs and pics require lining up while other speakers are speaking. I've never done any but I know some people get really ticked they have to wait in line for a while. Gold tickets go first then others but even my gold friends had to wait a long while.


2) what kind of socialization goes on outside of the official activities? One of my favorite things about the other events I've been to was the playtime with the other fans.

I hooked up w/a lot of people I'd met on the boards. As a matter of fact 1 guy and I buy our tickets together so we sit next to each other.

I had meals with people whenever I wanted and I know lots of people hung out in Quarks and drank and had fun late into the night. There's also a dinner if you're a Gold or Cpts. Chair ticket. If you want to there are always people to meet.

I had a TON of fun at this year's Vegas convention!  This year I also decided to enter the costume contest!  I didn't win anything, but I got to be all cute and fuzzy, and I wound up with a magazine and picture of Data for my efforts! :)

I was at Vegas this Summer. And it was my first real convention. I had a blast with the fans. I don't really need autographs, but I did say hi to Walter Koenig and Armin Shimerman both of which I saw walking around the Hilton. As far as playtime goes.... Quarks is a party every night. I met a bunch of people I never would have met if I was just tooling around the convention floor. Alcohol loosens a Trekkie up like nothing else. I can't see myself missing next year's convention, it was just too much fun.
