It's amazing how all these posts from new accounts spring up as soon as you criticise Shamasters on a forum they don't control. Who sent you over here? Joiner? Bedwell?

You people are so funny. Now back you go to your little Joiner sex doll and have a play before I start posting stuff on here that will certainly get the attention of CBS.

And Showmasters? Well they could put on the best Star Trek event the UK has ever seen, and you would not even acknowledge it. We all know what you're like.
The best Star Trek event the UK has ever seen was in blackpool in 2001. There will never be another trek event in this country to ever rival that.

Nobody 'sent me over here' - I think you'll find I've addressed your problems with other convention organisers too have I not? It just so happens that this is your latest target for venom.

Have a look on Red Carpet. That's how I found out you were here Bear. People are always aware of your behaviour and your threats. EVERY convention organiser that knows how you work is keeping an eye on you. They know you are looking to ruin them and won't stop at anything.

Ok, some people need to calm down in here. Thankfully, most posts have stayed on the reasonable side, thanks for that, folks. Anyway:

I have a word for this event. It begins with S, has a C, an A, and an M in it.
Admiral Bear, I understand you've had bad experiences in the past and it's ok to talk about them in here. However, accusing companies of scam or fraud in this way can have legal consequences for our board so I politely ask you not to do it, especially not in the form of this:

Now back you go to your little Joiner sex doll and have a play before I start posting stuff on here that will certainly get the attention of CBS.
which sounds like a legal threat. If you have that sort of information contact CBS if you must but don't drag this board into this possibly legal battle. Thanks.

Also, this:

definetely crosses the line regarding personal insults. I'll leave it at that for the moment because so far, you've been a good poster here, but don't do it again, please.

Having worked with Showmasters, MCM Expo, Creation and numerous other convention organisers in my 10+ years in the business, I can confirm that Admiral Bear is a troll of the highest order. Even my knowledge of The Greatest Show In The Galaxy, even though I'm not involved myself, I know people who are and they are all legit. Sadly AB is a known entity to everyone - both organisers and fans alike.[..]
This is also crossing the line. Accusing other posters of trolling is considered trolling as well. The general rule in here is to attack the post, not the poster. So, please focus on that. Again, I won't issue a warning because you're new but don't do it again.

Sorry for not looking in here earlier, everyone. I hope this topic can be discussed without emotions getting the better of people from now on.

What sort of ticket were you thinking about getting? I'm unsure as to what to get yet. Think I will wait until autograph prices go up so I can judge how much me going there in it's entirety will cost

Re: Star Trek London - All 5 captains to be there!

As a little illustration of how things "work" over at Shamasters, Hub Productions in Australia have announced that Barbara March has cancelled her appearance at Hub's Trek con this month due to ill health, and that she's retired from doing further appearances. Now, Barbara is/was due to appear at Kleptomania at the start of June with Gwyneth Walsh, and participate in a full Klingon costume photoshoot which Shamasters are charging I think £60 for.

You try posting any of the above information on the Shamasters forum and see how long it lasts before it gets deleted.

I thought Hub's Star Trek event was in October, not this month? can't find one for this month on their website.

£900???!!!!

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.

Re: Star Trek London - All 5 captains to be there!

I have a question for Admiral Bear. I was just wondering why it is that you seem to have some sort of personal thing against Showmasters. Did you have a bad experience at a show or is it just that you don't like the way they're ran? It's just that I've been to 6 london shows over the past three years and I've had a really enjoyable experience. The crew were lovely, the fans were great to meet and the whole atmosphere of the event was fantastic

I am really looking forward to this event and negative posts like yours just seem to attract the wrong attention, I assume they could even make people reconsider going to an event.
