First day of the Pensacon 2019. I have a lot of celebrities that I want to see this weekend. Each of our group that is attending Pensacon have different people we want to speak to and events we want to participate in but that is the point of how diverse it is by design.
LINES! But we are VIP’s so - never mind - we walk right in.
We always get down to the center early enough to have parking in the VIP parking area. The area always fills up about an hour before the event starts so being late is not good.
As always we have loaded up ice chests with drinks and have bags of snacks to eat throughout the day. Normally we eat a big meal for supper each day.
First, A quick look at the vendor floor and then off to the Celebrity tables where we could meet them as soon as they arrived. Being at the celebrity area quickly gives some time to talk to the celebrities without any pressure to move on and allow others to step up and to speak with them. No pictures on the celebrity floor. The reason may not be obvious to some so let me explain. Celebrities get paid by selling selfies and autographs because of this no photography.
The list of people we visited with is very long. Here is a partial list: Leah Cairns, Gil Gerard, Erin Gray, Felix Silla (Twiki), Kevin Sorbo, Kirk Thatcher, John Rhys-Davies, William Shatner, Jonathan Frakes, Jeffery Combs, Summer Glau, Alan Oppenheimer, Charles Fleischer, Sean Gunn, Julian Glover, Paul Freeman, Karen Page,….
One celebrity we met was Jonathan Frakes. He was on all of the shows of Star Trek : The Next Generation, Deep Space Nine, Voyager, Enterprise and several Star Trek movies. He also directed several of those shows along with The Liberians, Star Trek Discovery, and The Orville. Lisa and I got a picture with Mr. Frakes.
He is an interesting person and we enjoyed our time speaking with him. We were able to talk about his directing career and both Star Trek Discovery and Orville tv episodes he directed.
For fun I am adding some information from my Fitbit.
