that looks great but.... the finish RP uses on their posters means it is difficult to get signed.

i just wish they'd do these on 11x18 stock on which we could get signatures- it'd be a lot easier to manage, what with framing and getting signatures.

Overall, I had a good time.  I went on Sunday only and thought that the panels were great.  Was able to get in no problems, but did had to stand for Shatner, which I did not mind.

My one gripe would be that the show floor really didn't have much content.  There were many empty booths and the booths that were there didn't wow me.  I would have rather seen them have more generic (non star trek) booths so that there would be more to do if there were no panels you wanted to attend at a given time.  The NASA display was pretty cool though. 

I hope they do come back next year and continue to grow.

see i thought for what they were trying to accomplish the booths were fine. it was meant to be a smaller scale, also glad there were booths just there with content and not just trying to sell.

i just wish they had a small (10-20) 'artist alley' area, maybe with a sci-fi/fantasy focus.

one thing i found interesting is the amount of science panels they had, none were like full panel rooms, but interesting to see the science mixed in with the science fiction. the stamp panel on friday was actually quite well attended.

and shame on someone in the Leonard Nimoy personal collection item for misspelling it 'Nemoy" on all the placards.

 I couldn't go to the convention, so I am happy to get some of these great shirts.
