I think so, it's not a huge list.  If you have the Weekend entry then like at LFCC you will need to get VQ's for the auto's so that does depend on what time you get there/what number you get.  They do have package tickets (A bit like the Diamond passes but for the whole event, not just a specific guest) that will get priority for auto's before any VQ holders.

Thanks... are there packages that dont need vq?   And if so, is that only for the autos that are included in the package?

There are different levels of package and different items included in each.  However it's only the Commander packages and above that have 'fast tracking' for auto's and don't require VQ's (the fast track applies to all guests not just the ones who's auto's are included, though they may call you in package order).  With the 2 middle packages you get some photo's/auto's included but they assign some of them to you and you get vouchers to use on others you choose (but only up to a certain value).  Please read them on the website to make sure you fully understand what each package does and doesn't include https://www.destinationstartrek.com/tickets as the info I copied below doesn't include all the terms.  They also have Access passes you can apply for though you still require VQ's or the appropriate fast tracking package for auto's https://www.destinationstartrek.com/faqs#faq23

Ignore me, I read more in your post than you actually put, my brain ran ahead of what you put.  The Access Passes are special assistance passes for people with disabilities who need assistance or can't stand for long periods.

I am officially coming on Sunday now.  And I'm a first time attendee!  I've prebooked parking at the station as it's cheaper and open earlier than the NEC so I just hope I don't get lost whilst trying to find the walkway :laugh: and whatever Hall it's in.

Will be staying st Arden Hotel, a short walk from NEC, and the railway station for that matter. Perfect for someone like me who will fly to and from Birmingham.

You can’t miss the walkway its literally right there as you come out of the station and you just follow it along. It ends in a set of stairs and at the bottom straight ahead is Hall 3 (with 4 just around the corner, not sure which will be the “door” yet, they have used both on different occasions). Looking forward to seeing you both there.
