I've been to two cons and loved them both! Of course they weren't in Vegas But they were still fun! The second year I was in the costume contest, didn't win but I had a blast! It was so much fun!

Of course there was a Star Trek exhibit at the Denver Museum during the second Con, so that was pretty neat, too. My mom and Aunt went with me to that and then to the Con, which was only fitting since they both had a big hand in getting me into Star Trek

I agree that if you've never been to one then it might be good to start small &/or local. I'm not in Colorado, but the Denver Con was the closest one to me. I loved listening to Patrick Stewart talk and I even got to catch up with some people that lived here but had moved away. I never knew that they were Trek fans, too! So it was added fun to the Con for me

If you have a friend you can go with then that might help some, too. I took my oldest son with me to the first Con and he loved it! Esp the Loony Tunes booth in the trader room LOL I had a real hard time getting him away from that one :: wink wink ::

All in all, if you don't want to go then don't. If you do want to try one, then start small and build up. I may never make it to another Con, let alone the one in Vegas, but I am so glad that I have been to the two Cons I did go to. I had great fun and made some great memories, esp since mom and my Aunt are no longer with us. If you go, then relax and have fun! If you don't go, then still have fun with being a Trek fan ^_^

Peace!

Don't start the TEAMING-UP THING about THIS!!! Ladies, please ... Father_J and I were having a PRIVATE conversation!


If it's a "private conversation"...
Don't post it on a public forum.
It's also probably not a good idea to insult trekkies on their homefront (it is StarTrek.com, after all...)

There comes a time when the odds are against you and the only reasonable course of action is to quit... That's when you turn to Star Trek.

Well, I've never been to a convention... I really want to someday. But its not like you're not a real fan if you don't go to a convention or something. If you don't have a desire to go to a convention then simply don't... it doesn't make you any less of a fan.
