Are you referring to only ST ones? >.> I've never been to an ST one...ever. Never really had the strong urge to go.


 


However, me and the boytoy go to horror conventions (his thing, not really mine)...and, this year, we have 8 of them, to attend, so far. More to be added, I'm sure. -.-

hubbs and I are going to a few cons this year. Philly comic con, Chiller Theatre, Shore Leave, and the NJ Creation con. We might go to some more comic cons depending on who the guests are

Damn, you are so lucky. =/


I can't go in a convention, me. First : I'm not 18 so I can't go in the USA alone. (i'm from Canada) Second : There's no %?#!@ convention in Quebec. Maybe in Ontario, in Toronto I think, but it's at 8 hours from where I live. -_- The only advantage to live here is... that I was born very close to where William Shatner was born. \o/


I still hope a miracle for this year. Maybe Las Vegas ? Pleaaaaase. T_T

That's a damn shame there used to be a great one in Montreal back when I was young and the world was new... wonder why the birth place of William Shatner is being snubbed by conventions now?


I'm going to the Chicago Trek convention and I wish there was a Firefly one coming close to Indy/Chicago area but not looking like it.


Elim Garak: Remember: it's not just Tain we're looking for. The Maryland, the Proxima, the Sarajevo, Starfleet ships that have been lost in the Gamma Quadrant for years; and their crews - brave soldiers, warriors of the Federation unaccounted for... We owe it to them to do everything in our power to find them and bring them home. It's the honorable thing to do. Worf: You use that word, but you have no idea what it means. Elim Garak: Maybe not. But you do.

Auckland's Armageddon, just like last year... and the year before... and the one before that. I love Armageddon, actually... me and ma' mates go, they aren't all 'nerds'... but the ones that (frankly) are, join me.
Not sure if they'll be Star Trek people there... we'll find out in June...

I really want to go to the Vegas con, but it's so expensive!


 


I've never been to a ST con, but I go to San Diego Comicon every year = SO amazing.


 


I'm from San Diego but I go to school in the San Fran area- are there any ST cons you would suggest I attend??? :/


There are so many! hahaha I know the Vegas one is huge- my friends and I have been checking it out... but over $300 for the smallest package?? And that doesn't even cover everything- all the special events are individually paid for!? :X


Happy Birthday Leonard Nimoy!!! You are one of the most talented, inspirational, and respectable people to have ever garnered so much fame. llap, always.

I'm going to the Vegas Con this year. I'm so excited! I'd like to go to the Chicago Con again (I went last year) but with Vegas and everything I don't think I'll be able to. That and I'd have to miss school, and I don't know if my parents would let me.

One of these days, I'll get myself to Vegas for the big one. For this year, however, I'll be keeping it local--going to try and make it to the con in Parsippany, June 24-26...
