Re: Sci-fi convention descends into brawl between rival fans...
Well, it's no big deal to have it posted in more than one forum, especially since there are a lot of people who post here but not in SF&F, and vice versa. Plus, while this story seems to be greatly overblown because of the humorous circumstances (there wasn't even an actual fight), I'm looking forward to seeing how people will have fun talking about it here.
However, it does need a working article link, so here are the two from the other threads on this:
'First Contact' is the tale of a man who just wants to cash in on his creation so he can get wasted on an island full of naked women, but his fans keep insisting that he's a saintly visionary who has profoundly altered the world. AKA - 'I Don't Want to be a Statue: The Gene Roddenberry Story.'
