They just announced today that Herb Jefferson Jr. had to cancel due to a scheduling conflict. I hope they replace him with someone cool that I haven't seen before.

Cardinal should be announced as a guest this weekend, so there's a replacement for you.

And why would Cardinal be a guest?

yeah, I don't get why fanfiction needs to be at a convention

You know, it's not worth it. ?I know there's this whole; 'I can't actually fight against you so I'm just going to marginalize your work' thing among a few of you, and I'm frankly just sick of it.

it has nothing to do with any previous fights. Cardinal is fanfic...nothing more, nothing less. I've read it, I've enjoyed it. But it's fanfic

I'm not sure if you realize this or not, and since you're not a bad person, I take it you don't, but telling me what I'm doing is just some silly little fanfic is the equivilant of me going into your store and telling you that you don't make real jewlery, that it's just some silly little hobby you have and you should go get a real job. ?

Now, I know better. ?If what I've been told is true, you're actually very talented and deserve respect for what you are doing. ?However, if someone had no idea who you are, they wouldn't bother shopping at your store after hearing someone say your work is worthless. ?

To be honest, the only chance I have to get this thing through is if a big enough buzz can be created around it, and having a few people (and it's really only a few people) try to knock it down is really hurting the project. ?Because of the secrecy around parts of the show, it's so hard to present a product for an up or down vote. ?So when people tell you "Oh, that? ?That's just some silly little thing that doesn't matter," then that's pretty much all those people bother finding out about the project.

well since you pretend to know me, you would know that I don't have any store...I do say that I make jewelry as a hobby, and that I do have a 9-5 office job.. so please try again :D

and like I said, I thought cardinal has graet ideas in it. But it's the fanfic of a few people, pretending it's the next big tv show is not going to make it actualy happen

Well, if you don't understand, or just don't care, that saying something someone puts a lot of work into is a worthless rag hurts, then I feel sorry for you.  This is more than just a hobby, this has become something that gets harder and harder to keep up, and is draining a lot of bank accounts and energy.  The people working very hard on this project deserve more than to be told what they're doing is some silly hobby.

did I say it was worthless? no. In fact I said I enjoyed it. I enjoy many fanfics. It's clear that a lot of time and love was put into it. But that doesn't make it any better than the thosuands of other talented writers out there who put their love and time into equaly good fanfic. I hate the design of your ship, but I love the characters and some of your story lines are great. It is some very good quality fanfic

Well, at any rate, it's still going to be a great show. I've seen Herb Jefferson Jr. before, so its no big deal. I'm just hoping some someone I haven't seen before. After attending 8 conventions in the last 2 years, I've seen a lot of the actors and other people from the show. There are several I've still yet to see, so I hope they get one of them.

They just added Orli Shoshan, who played Jedi Shaak Ti in Star Wars Ep. II & III.

Not exactly who I was hoping for, but pretty cool, I guess. Photo her on the website is pretty stunning. Very attractive.

They have finally announced the guest for this years Trek Expo in Tulsa, OK. It is a great line up, although I have seen most of these guest multiple times. I'm a little disspointed that there are no Firefly guests this year. We're still planning to go though.

Guests are:
Leonard Nimoy
Avery Brooks
Marina Sirtis
John de Lancie
Garret Wang
Anthony Montgomery
Cirroc Lofton
Chase Masterson (Leeta from DS9)
Bobby Clark (Gorn Captain from TOS)

also:
Phil Morris (from Smallville, he was also one of the kids on "And the Children Shall Lead" from TOS)
Corin Nemic (Stargate SG-1)
Mira Furlan (Babylong 5 and Lost)
Luciana Carro (from the new Battlestar Galactica)

also Keith Birdsong, who illustrated the covers of tons of Trek novels, will be there again. He is a really cool guy, and displays a lot of his work.

The website is www.trekexpo.net

The link is broken or the page is down.


It is time to start making preperations to go.... ?especially for me. This is my first convention and I'm on a budget so the sooner I start the better.

Huh, I just looked at it a minute ago, and it was fine. If the link doesn't work, just go straight to

www.trekexpo.net

They added Denise Crosby today, and have also announced that a NASA astronaut will speak a well.

The final countdown to Trek Expo begins!!!   Although I am annoyed it takes so long to get a schedule of events. Question for anyone who has been at Trek Expo before: costumes. Are they a one day or all weekend thing, or what?
:D

I knew there was going to be one there in Tulsa but I just didn't know when, until I read this post. I wished I caught it alot sooner, if I did I probley would get to go. But since I didn't I won't get to because I have to work this weekend.:cry:  I really want to go since I found out Lenarod Nimoy is going to be there. I love the Orginal Series along with The Next Genaration, and I very much want to meet my favorite characters from them. But now I guess I have to wait until next time. Unless there is a possable way I can go to the Vegas one. But I'm not gonna get my hopes up yet. I just wish they would have some type of Star Trek convention in the Dallas, TX area because thats close to where I live. Well, I''ll just to keep looking for it. If not, I''ll have to wait till next year to go to the one in Tulsa.
