  1. Despite the criticisms in my previous post, I must say that overall I really did enjoy the event and was sad when it finished. The photoshoots all ran well for me, despite people crowding round unnecessarily, although it probably helped that all but one of my tickets were batch 1. I thought the queueing for the Enterprise stage worked well and the staff managing the queues were friendly and efficient. The crew member with pink hair who was at Terry Farrell's autograph table on Sunday was delightful! I loved the Rat Pack on Saturday, but was forced to leave an hour into their set because my feet couldn't cope with standing anymore - more chairs were definitely needed! And I think that's about it!
  2. A man basically asked her whether she'd enjoyed kissing her wife on DS9. I suspect the issue was more with the leering way in which he asked it, than with the question itself!
  3. The guest line-up wasn't as spectacular as I was expecting for the 50th anniversary, but those guests we did have were excellent. The crew were generally very polite and friendly when spoken to, which is a credit to all of them, since I'm sure they dealt with a lot of complaints and people not doing as instructed. I wasn't impressed with the organisation this time. Because there were no separate entry queues for Command, Lieutenant and weekend passes, morning entry resembled a rugby scrum with too many people trying to enter at the same time. I know priority entry was never on offer, but I think from a health and safety perspective it would have been a good idea! My main gripe is that the Commander pass was supposed to give you priority access to the autograph queues - certainly on the Saturday, the blue shirts in charge of the queues were interpreting this as meaning we could join the back of the queue without a virtual ticket, rather than that we should be slotted in near the front of the queue (which is what the package description promises). I would have been happy to do this had the queues been of a reasonable length, but given that some of them stretched practically across the venue, it seemed like I was paying for access that I wasn't getting. On the Sunday I only managed to get my autographs because I complained to the person "managing" one very long queue, who referred me to a red shirt who then saw that I got slotted in at a reasonable distance from the front. Finally, I think all ticket holders who had 'Tier 6' for Shatners World deserve a refund, given that the sound quality was so poor we could barely hear him and there was no projection of him on the big screen, so we couldn't see him either!
  4. I saw Mads on Friday and he was absolutely lovely. I'm sometimes a bit unsure about asking people for a "hug" photo but he did it happily. He was also really friendly and approachable when getting autos. I know his willingness to do selfies on the Friday probably slowed the queue down a lot, but it was great to see someone so enthusiastic about meeting their fans.
  5. You can get them at the same time. Thank you! I really appreciate the effort that you and the mods put in at times like these - its above and beyond!
  6. I have a Mads diamond ticket for the Friday and also a separate photoshoot ticket which is Batch 2. Can I get both photos at the same time or do I have to queue again?
  7. It's certainly quiet today - I imagine this time tomorrow it may be a tad busier! Lol
  8. Apologies - since it was on the website, I thought it was public knowledge!
  9. Me too! Also I need to go fabric shopping in Birmingham!
  10. Semi-excited! I will be more excited the week before!
  11. So glad we're having another pub quiz! It was indeed epic and an excellent way to spend a sunday evening!
  12. the quiz was great fun sorry about the wrong answer to the martin landau question and thanks for letting me be an honorary floozy for the night I don't think that point would have made much difference to us! lol You embraced your flooziness with great enthusiasm!
  13. Great weekend - the crew were all lovely, friendly and helpful! Really enjoyed the quiz on Sunday night - it was a much better way to end the weekend than the usual dead party! Sundays talks were slightly ruined for me by a couple of attendees laughing incessantly at their own whispered jokes and conversations, which sometimes made it difficult to hear what the guests were saying - a bit more consideration for the people they were sitting near and for the guests themselves would have been nice!
  14. It would definitely be better if Gold ticket holders entered through the other door - less crowded and also less of a walk for people with disabilities! I was gold 12 (or thereabouts) last time, and I ended up on the fourth row on the saturday, which did not amuse me! It was also why I didn't bother queuing early for better tickets on the sunday - there seemed little point when it doesn't get you a better seat!
  15. What would make it worth it for me would be, if they run a similar event again, they just gave us autograph vouchers and I could choose who I wanted!
