News of the not-unexpected cancellation of STLV in December, and delay until another August slot, makes this timing perfect:
Just when Trek peeps are missing cons again … here comes Virtual Trek Con 2 THIS weekend, FIVE days from today/Thursday through Monday.
And all FREE! (PayPal donations are accepted, however.)
The first edition only last July was such a hit, our friends Ryan and Cirroc and the 7th Rule Podcast team are back at it again.
And this time, there’s a virtual vendor’s/dealer’s room Promenade with over 40 booths! Me included.
Over 40 “virtual” vendors are open for 90 minutes a day, all in the same time frame— but different, each day.
Otherwise, panels (and panel repeats for global timeframes) are ongoing — all in the hosts’ own web homes— most on Zoom.
There’s lots of good ones— just look at this guest list! And not just actors: DS9’s Ira Stephen Behr, and including showrunner Mike McMahan from the just-wrapped Lower Decks Season 1, too. Lots of other creatives, too — and even makeup demos, plus podcasters and lots of fandom niches.
Most of all, you are invited for MY panel— a LIVE session Monday with my Life Support LIVE co-host Dr. Ali Mattu and YOUR chat stream comments. It’s “Star Trek and Mental Health: Hits AND Misses,” at 8:45 am PT/ 11:45 am ET / 4:45 BST / 5:45 CEST. Here’s the YouTube Live direct link (or check that lmainlink for the ID and password.)
As for me, I’ll be there all five days at this Zoom “booth” — some days with a surprise, so stay tuned. Maybe even some READINGS.
We kick off today (see my schedule graphic below) at 11:30 am PT/ 2:30 pm ET (and of course, 7:30 pm BST / 8:30 pm CEST).
