I know it’s a sold-out convention — always is. Gallifrey One near LAX in LA is a mini-version of San Diego Comic-Con, selling out minutes after tickets open each fall.
But poobah Shaun Lyon always has me and other Trek events on hand, because “Who fans have more than one fandom!” And they do!
The 29th annual Gallifrey One has seen Who’s boom and bust and boom again, just as Trek, and is back again at the LAX Marriott this weekend.
I’ll be there Friday and Saturday with joint and solo panels and a table for Trekland, Portal 47 and a drawings for prizes.
And on Saturday I’ll be joining the big Star Trek Continues clambake of cast, guest cast and crew.
Here’s my end of things:
Noon: “Context Is For Kings: Interpreting Discovery” Panel (Program B)
1-6:30 pm: Table hours with breaks
11 am – 6 pm: Table hours (when not at these panels/events or on break):
1 pm: Star Trek Continues—The Panel: (Program A) Myself …and 18 others (see below)!
2 pm: STC Autographs — (Autog/Alley) Myself and that same 18:
4 pm: Trekland: The State of the Trek Show (Program F) — Just me! No media hookups this year, so we’ll go forum style and I want to hear from YOU.
6 pm : The Portal 47 “BriefUp” (lobby TBA) — It’s a briefing, it’s a meet-up!: Door prizes, video, guests and a chance to win a new TOS complete DVD set!
If you are on the grounds, hope to see you there!
(Or even if you are slumming in the hotel lobby… give a yell. 😉 )
