Luckily, Chicago also happens to be my home town, so the convention location is not more than an hour away from where I live. Yowza! My excitement grows as I work on finishing the final tweaks to my Data costume...


Chicago ain't Vegas, but it sure as heck has got its own charm. Give me the Windy City any day! Com'on, who else is coming????

MEEEEE!  Can't wait! Would've loved to go to Vegas, but right now I'm on a strict "drive only" policy until the crazy occurrences with our American airlines is stopped. Chicago is a more practical driving distance for me so away I go.


Last year I could only attend one day---- the day that Leonard Nimoy was supposed to show, and that was when everyone found out he'd taken ill. I was obviously very disappointed, but I had a great time anyway. Now that I can come all three days of the convention, I am VERY excited and I can't wait to meet Nimoy, Frakes, Nichols, and Rene!


Absolutely marvelous.

I plan on going! Hopefully I'll be able to go for the whole thing, as last year I went on the day Leonard Nimoy was supposed to appear, like TheMaskedMarvel. I especially want to go as this is his last convention, and it's close to home!

I met a lot of other people who had also been able to come to only one day of the convention last year- and all to see Nimoy. Hopefully most of them will be able to return, like you folks, to get their fill of "Spock" and meet other great celebrities!


And Megan, isn't it a blessing to be so close?? How near are you to the location? Just curious.

We already attended two conventions in Chicago this year, so we will probably not be able to attend this one.  Too bad as it is allegedly Mr. Nimoy's last one.

Oh yes, it's awesome! I'm about a half hour away, so it's perfect! And the convention is tons of fun!

ALL SATURDAY AND SUNDAY ADMISSION TICKETS ARE SOLD OUT!!!


PHOTO OPS WITH LEONARD NIMOY ARE SOLD OUT!


Only other major addition I can see is that John De Lancie is now appearing on stage Friday, not Sunday as originally scheduled.


Any other changes, of course, can be seen here:

I was not aware that tickets were sold at the door. I was under the impression that they are sold on a pre-order base only... but this is only my second convention so I am no expert on the matter.


Can anyone confirm or clarify this information?

You are going to be throwing up pictures of you in this year's data costume here and on FB, right Roboto?
