I know.

I've read some worrying stuff about British ST conventions, and truth be told we poms couldn't organise a piss up in a brewery, but surely we have to get it right at least once?

Looks like Jason Joiner is running this event. Mr "Serial Weekend Convention Cancellation Specialist". He's already cancelled his own Trek event twice in the last two years.

Be afraid. Be VERY afraid. :klingon:

Ticket prices are a laugh anyway. Doubt this event will happen. Joiner's not capable of getting Trek guests over for an event. He's only in this for himself, and will shit all over Media 10 just as he did with Fedcon about 5 years ago.

Most ST Captain's I've seen on stage together is two, Mulgrew and Steward.

Would that be BarSteward?:lol: Sorry, that's Shatner.

The most Trek Captains you've seen on stage together will probably still be two by the end of October!

Then you've just saved yourself 900. Be happy! :bolian:

Plus you've saved yourself 6 months of worrying about whether or not this event will actually happen, and if you'll ever see your money again when it gets cancelled!

900?!!! :crazy:

Holy crap. I could buy me a lot of pretty dresses with that kinda money.

900???!!!! That would buy a driveable second-hand car!!

I'd expect a blow job from all five Captains for that kind of money.

They should do it for free. There's no need for money in the 23rd Century and beyond.

Just to clarify, 900 is the lowest price ticket that will get you in person autographs from the 5 captains. I think the 299 tickets get you in to the 5 seperate captains talks.

Whole thing looks like a massive piss take. I hope it dies on its arse. UK fans don't deserve to be taken to the cleaners like this.

There's a line in the ticket T&C over at Shamasters that says "Should any individual captain be unable to attend the show a substitute talk/autograph will be provided."

So if one or more of the captains doesn't show up (quite likely), people who've spent 900 to get ALL 5 of their signatures in person, as no other lower priced ticket entitles the holder to this, won't get a refund. Just a 5 worth signature of some 1 episode C lister from Joiner's store cupboard.

I have a word for this event. It begins with S, has a C, an A, and an M in it.

Sounds awfully expensive, the phrase "Rip Off" comes to mind.

How are you arriving at the 900 figure? What's to stop people from purchasing a regular entrance ticket for 30 and buying 5 tickets for the captain's autographs (probably 30-40 each) ?
