Hello World!

Alas, all good things must come to an end, and I had to come back from my first ever Star Trek convention in Sydney.

It was a fantastic experience, from meeting some of the actors at lunch, to Garrett Wang's hilarious impressions. Every single one of the guests was funny, courteous, and good-natured after singing their names for the 300th time that day.

The fans were fantastic too - and it just made me even more depressed to return to all the fighting that goes on between fans on the Internet these days. If I hadn't known better, I'd swear these were two different groups of people. The fans at the con ranged from children just getting into the show, to convention veterans who had been going for 20 years or more. And it didn't matter whether they preferred TOS or VOY, or thought Picard was a better captain than Kirk - because they were Trek fans who had come to see some of the wonderful actors who had brought these characters to life.
