Las Vegas Con Photo Report

Last weekend's Slanted Fedora convention in Las Vegas celebrated the 35th Anniversary in style, featuring guests from the first four Star Trek series. 50 new photos of the event are now available, giving fans not present a good look at what they missed.

The convention was held from the Thursday the 6th of September to Sunday the 9th of September, featuring guests from a different series every day. Present were such major stars as Leonard Nimoy (Spock) and Brent Spiner (Data), but also actors with recurring roles such as Robin Curtis (Saavik) and Andrew Robinson (Garak). Frequent TrekToday contributor Michael J. Fijolek also attended the con, and was able to provide us with this report.

Below you will find 50 photos of many of the stars who attended the event. Most of the photos show the actors on-stage, but there are also a few showing them interacting with the fans.

Re: Las Vegas Con Photo Report

I second the worries of my trekbbs comrades when I shout, "What the F*$*$*$* has Jennifer Lien been eating".
Christ sakes, she must be either pregnant(probably not), having some thyroid problems(who knows), or just eating her way at the local hotdog stand. Yikes. Probably post-traumatic stress syndrome after realizing the absolute crap episode she played in with her return to Voyager. What was that episode, "Fury"???

Is it REALLY *our* business, and is it *really* tactful to ask when Jennifer might easily READ THIS? Folks, be tactful. Be human. Hell, be Vulcan, but BE TACTFUL!

On other notes-Wang scares me. Harry, you can grow up without growing facial yuck. Russ scare me...although he looks oddly attractive. In a most unVulcan way. Nimoy looed good, same as he always had. Doohan looked awful, but he made it...good going. Beltrans new hair flop with gray is fascinating. Robie McNeill looke good. Kate Mulgrew, as always, loked aout the best. Nicole de Boer would be a close second. Marina and Michaelclowning around as usual, and the annoying Talaxian and Holodoc traveled en pair and triumverate with Lien. As always. Roxann awson aways startles me, simply because she never seems to look even remotely like hr character (even pure human B'Elanna!). I always have to do a double take. Gates McFadden an Brent Spiner looked up to par, and like they were having a blast. Nana and Sid looked good, but Sid looked always. Very diverse cast out there...goregeous photos. Thanks for taking them Michael!

I can't pretend to know what your life's been like, but I do know there's nothing sadder than a missed opportunity. [Kes]

Unless they rename this BBS "Pizza Hut" or "Tony Roma's Ribs", I don't think Jennifer will be here.
I refuse to put a signature here!

Re: Las Vegas Con Photo Report

Yeah, if your gonna wear shorts, at least be sensible enough to pull down your freaking socks. Makes it at least bearable.
