    @Aquarius regarding the convention - Did you get any pictures of pointy eared females? I saw only one in a modern star fleet uniform.

    Hi everyone !

    It's official ! [​IMG] I received today my e-mail confirmation for the Reunion 8 convention at Daventry (UK). I took an alumni ticket so i'm going to share a coktail night with Connor (and the other guest. Katrina Law from Spartacus : Blood and Sand, eddie McClintock from Warehouse 13 and Phil Ford the DrWho writer [​IMG] ). Plus all the parties, special seats in the Q&A sessions, and all !

    I'm so excited and a little anxious too !

    I thought the Meet and Greet sucked. Connor and Dom were fine -- funny and entertaining.

    Here's what we got for our $250: We were taken to a conference room and sat around a huge table, Connor at one end and Dom at the other. The first fan to speak set the format by bringing up Enterprise. We'd already had a forum earlier in the day and frankly didn't need another one (especially at the going rate of $250 an hour :scream:). I was under the impression that I was paying for a social event, something along the lines of the wine and cheese party with Connor at Parsippany last July. Refreshments consisted of ice water and wrapped candies scattered across the table (I think they might have been Starbursts :rolleyes:). (Creation minions fetched drinks for Connor and Dom from the bar -- we weren't even asked (I would have paid for my own!)

    So, this is just one more event I can ignore if/when I sign with Creation again.

    I haven't been to a creation Con in quite a few years. Disappointed then, sounds like they are still running a crappy show. Cool to see Connor, doesn't sound like you got your money's worth though.

    Agreed.

    I'm sorry your meet & greet wasn't great, Jinx.

    As far as Creation Cons go, there's a Star Trek Con in Chicago in October and there aren't many cast members scheduled. Very disappointing. Did Dominic or Connor say if they was planning to attend any more conventions?

    I'm sorry that you paid so much money for a real rip-off.
    I went to a convention that Creation had in London. It was expensive. I will never go to another Creation event again, even thought I really would love to go to the Trek con in Vegas.

    You know, I've yet to get to one and I've heard nothing but bad stuff about Creation - as far as their "handling" of patrons and whatnot. It really sucks that they can't do better by the fans (and the talent, who have also expressed their dissatisfaction with them), since they have so many conventions all over the place. Of course, they know people will pay that much to see Connor, so they know they can get away with charging that much and giving you virtually nothing else in return. You're probably lucky they even gave you water! ;) I'm sorry it sucked, despite the presence of Connor and Dominic.

    Jinx I'm sorry you didn't really enjoy your meetand Greet with Connor and Dominic as you thought you would.After paying $250.00 you think Creation could've served food and drinks for the fans it seems like that should've been included in the price for the tickets.

    Eeeek! I need to do a correction here: I paid $250 for the wine and cheese event at Parsippany last July. :cool:

    I paid $200 for the Vegas Meet & Greet. :p
