  1. Lets see what they show first and then take it from there.
  2. Start by coming up with ideas that are feasible lol - 4D Borg from Vegas? Have you any idea how much something like that costs?? Even the sets are VERY expensive to recreate, or ship over, as very little of this kind of thing is available in the UK. While some of the ideas on here are great, people need to think about what they are suggesting first. Anything ridiculously expensive such as multiple large sets would be unlikely. Also, anything that would only be accessible by a few people at a time (set walk-rounds etc) are not ideal for a convention with 18000 people that all want a go. This is exactly why free talks have to be ticketed and why mainstream guests have to have so little time with each person in photoshoots and auto sessions - whatever you are suggesting needs to be able to be available for thousands of guests per day Thanks for the feedback. However considering the Convention probably made some money from the organizers. Im sure something like the borg 4D could be a cost and not just free. its just an suggestion. there are lots of ideas to take and use that are close to free if not free.
  3. In fact Jason. I would help you make this a better experience for free. I would love to throw my ideas around and implement them in person.
  4. Jason, how about? a) The Star trek Experience from Vegas b )The Borg 4D experience from Vegas c) Huge photo's of the stars hung around the arena. ( Have you been to see the Harry potter in Watford? That has some excellent ideas you could steal). d) A recreation of Nelix's kitchen or something? e) Janeway or Picards Ready room? f) Star Trek Magazine having a board with EVERY magazine ever made. g) More world records trying to be broken. Perhaps watching the Series from start to end without falling asleep. :)
  5. The highlights outweighed the negatives for sure.

    Suggestiosn for Improvements

    Some people who were platinum did get them. I think the goody bags were being filled at the show and hence mistakes were made. i know one platinum got Neelix, one got the enterprise dude, one got jonathan frakes, and i got nothing. lol

    Suggestiosn for Improvements

    Not sure if this suggestion has been posted, but im not going to repeat any suggestions ive read as I think ive seen them by everyone. I wouldve got a HUGE wall hanging poster of all the captains (indivdually), couldve started behind stage B and worked across. This then could've been sold at Auction

    As for b, do you mean they weren't letting in the people who did have tickets, or those who did not? Because if the latter, I would agree with that. People spent a lot of time queueing to get those tickets, and some of us had clashing photoshoots and wanted to join the talk after it had started if we needed to. If the hall had been filled with unticketed people at that point, that would have been a big letdown. There is no denying that, but do you understand its not a PAID talk, its a free talk. Its not fair to the guests to see the hall half empty and lots of people crowding around outside. if you have a clash, and cannot make it there for the start, in my opinion, you should not have taken a ticket/or should lose the seat WHEN it starts. I appreciate that you should have a choice, but you decided to pay for the photo you were never going to miss that. Someone cant take ur photo spot essentially, the line just moves forward, but the talk had an empty seat which could've been used . On the Sunday for the talks I went to if the seats were still empty 5/10 minutes into the talk the staff were letting the people outside in in small batches. Yes only after I complained! I was pushed in the chest and told to get back twice. The staff said, there is no way we can let you in, they are ticket seats. All we are asking for is next time, this stuff doesnt happen. whats done is done.
  14. Thank god for the platinum goody bag. The best thing was, that i could use it very easy for my autographs and pictures.

Someone cant take ur photo spot essentially, the line just moves forward, but the talk had an empty seat which could've been used . I understand that these are 'free' talks (that is, talks included in the main ticket price), but I do feel that those who were there early to queue up for the talk tickets have, so to speak, earned the right to see the talks. With photo clashes, the pit bosses do try to rush you through as fast as possible (we got both John DeLancie and William Shatner done in less than ten minutes when we had to get to the Michael Dorn talk), but yes, you do risk running late. That's why the ticket system works so well for cons like this -- this way, turning up for the con early means you can then do both things, even if you're a bit late for the talk. The talk did not have two empty seats that could have been used, the talk had two reserved seats that were empty for 5-10 minutes and then had us sitting in them, enjoying the talk that we queued to get tickets for. you may have got to ur seats, but the DS9 was half empty, there were many situations where tickets were given out and the seats remained EMPTY the whole duration of the talk. Its a generic discussion not a personal one. If it worked for you then fair play. I paid £900+, and did not even get any priority for these free talks. I actually lined up for them all, got my tickets and sat and watched every show, if i left or couldnt make the start, i gave my ticket/seat away.
