    Sorry Monte Cristo, but paying separately for a Q&A is crazy

    by qweruiop

    For those not in the know this will mark the first time (at least that I've ever heard of) that you would have to pay to see a Q&A. ...a Q&A within a normal comic con. This isn't some separate Q&A themed to a specific charity or a fundraising event or anything like that. It's your standard Q&A that you would find at any comic con, except you would have to pay a separate fee (on top of the usual ticket entrance fee) to see it. Up to $125 PER person no less. Does anyone else not find this crazy! I'll understand people charging for signatures...even for photo-ops. It's an experience that one is receiving a tangible item from. But for a comic con to charge a separate fee to attend a Q&A, up to $125 a seat no less. I call this the beginning of the fall for comic cons. It's been good to see their surge in popularity, but it's easy to also see how much they're exploiting the loyal fan base. This will mark the turning event when all future comic cons will charge a separate fee for each Q&A, and it'll be interesting to see if people will stand for that or not.

    Gates McFadden

    by RipperGiles

    if anyone there would indulge me, can you try to bounce a quarter off Gates McFadden's face? I mean, come on, that sucker's stretched tighter than a snare drum!

    I wouldn't pay $125 to have Deana Troi lick my...

    by MaxHeadroom

    ... well, OK, maybe I would pay $125 for that, but I don't want to pay just to ask her questions? Worse, just to see others do it! A separate fee for a Q&A is simply idiotic and ignorant of the convention sponsors. If it is getting to the point where fans are being fleeced to pay separate fees for everything, it just isn't worth bothering with.

    Also Monte Cristo it is still a part of the Wizard Con

    by qweruiop

    It's being held in the same conference room where all the other Q&As are being held during the Wizard Con, only again it's a separate fee to see this particular Q&A. I live here in Austin and while I'm going to the con I'm not going to see this event. But I would love to see the look on people's faces when your average joe comic con goer is trying to get into the Q&A only to be told that it'll be another $45 to $125 to get in. I can see the conversation now: Staff: Do you have your ticket? Joe: Sure it's right here. Staff: That's your entrance ticket sir. Do you have your TNG Q&A ticket? Joe: ...um no, I didn't know I'd need one. Do I need one? Staff: Yes sir, you have to buy one to get in. Joe: Buy one? ...okay, how much are they? Staff: $45 to $125 Joe: WHAT!!!

    Will we ever see a TV show like this one again?

    by kevred

    I was just talking about this show at lunch today with a coworker. As I understand it, Roddenberry wanted another Kirk-like captain, but the network lobbied hard for a bald, grayed, British actor that 95% of the TV-viewing public had never heard of. What are the odds of that happening again today, or perhaps ever again? This show was one of those "lightning in a bottle" moments where everyone involved didn't "know better" in all the supposedly market-savvy ways that kill shows left and right. Instead, something magical was allowed to escape from the mundane machine, and now we have one of the most thoughtful shows of any genre to ever grace the screen - probably the most thoughtful and human show since the original Twilight Zone - to look back on with affection.

    What? No Wesley Crusher!

    by Tim

    Conspicuous by his absence, he's the only one in the promo not showing up?

  • Oct. 26, 2012, 8:29 a.m. CST

    What do you want, Michael Dorn?

    by fscottnational

    A McDLT...

  • I'll be going Sunday, when the tickets are $35 and the Frakes, Burton, Spiner, Dorn panel is free for all.
