Excellent! What convention are you going to?

I had a chance to see JG cut loose and cut a rug on the dance floor to Tim Russ' band in Vegas a few years ago! Great fun. Enjoy!!

Small cons are great! Usually much more personable and more opportunities to really meet and interact with the guests.

Smaller cons are generally better and feel less rushed than larger ones. Though it's been a few years since I last went to a con.

Re: Cannot Wait!

I've only been to 2 conventions where Trek people were (+ one Buffy con - met David Boreanaz, but that's not relevant here), but one of them was Vegas about 6-7 years ago and since it was the big anniversary, everyone was there. It was really cool to meet the actors and listen to them speak - I was totally jazzed especially to meet Avery Brooks. That was very cool for me, although I met most of the DS9 actors at that con, really...plus lots of the actors from the other shows.

It's exciting - I hope you have a nice time!

Re: Cannot Wait!

Why is exciting to meet an actor who played a character on the show? Frankly, I'd be more interested in meeting the writers but even then, it wouldn't be that exciting.

Don't hold us to blame for your general lack of enthusiasm.

Different things excite different people for different reasons.

Re: Cannot Wait!

The smaller conventions are much better all the way around. I've had the opportunity to meet John De Lancie, Wil Wheaton, and Chase Masterson all in more informal situations at conventions, and it's much more fun that way. Actually ran into Chase Masterson at Quark's bar at the Vegas Hilton (I soooo miss that place) as she was setting up for an autograph session. The group I was with (3 of us) spoke with her for a few minutes. Didn't ask for autographs or anything, it was just fun to talk. She was extremely personable to talk to. John De Lancie was speaking at a convention that was very small, and basically sat with the group instead of being up front. It was more of just an informal discussion than the typical celebrity standing on a stage and telling a story or two. It's interesting to hear their take on the characters, but I agree that talking to the writers would probably be even more interesting in some ways. I haven't had that opportunity yet.

Re: Cannot Wait!

Have fun! I got to meet J.G. Hertzler in Chicago a few years ago. The man is every bit as awesome as the characters he played. When my friend and I were at the bar during the second night of the convention, we heard someone come in the door and say "What the hell are all of you drunks doing here and who's buying?!". We turned around and nearly plotzed.

I missed out on the chance to see JG, when he was here last year. But I love the smaller cons - as a few weeks I got to meet Chase Masterton and also see Walter Koenig. Also was with around 100 people when Avery Brooks was here last year for a convention.
