Howdy! So, backstory, Never been to a con of any sort, I'm a Niner, figured I'd make my first one the Las Vegas Show on DS9s 20th anniversary. I've already sorted out the hotel and flight, just waiting for the lower level tickets to be released, my questions are: What am I to expect with GA tickets? Will I be able to meet any actors, are there places blocked off that only premium guests can get to that are worth it? Is Thursday worth it? With hotel prices (and food expenses) the way they are, I'd like to shave off a day, if possible, from what I can gather, the big ticket days are the weekend days, so Thursday seems the logical choice, is it worth it? How much money should I expect to spend/bring? is most everything included in the general ticket? If I want to pick up a few memorabilia items and an autograph or two (I'm especially looking forward to Alexander Siddig) What can I expect to spend on this? (Essentially, can I get away with a few hundred dollars, or should I plan on pinching every penny from here to August?) What are some of your honest-to-goodness reviews of the event? I would really hate to invest all of my spare change for the year into something that isn't worth the price of admission. Thanks so much for the indulgence of this simple Cadet.
