The schedule is finally out, but not final. I have made my notes on my plans based on the schedule they sent us, though.
Sounds like they'll be playing a music video every three seconds. Hope those aren't crap.
So, on my birthday, I'm going to go see Scarlet Pomers (Naomi), Susie Plakson (K'eyhlar and others), and Patti Yasutake (Alyssa Ogawa); then Tim Russ (why is he on so early?); Bob Justman; Rod Roddenberry (Malachi Throne is on at the same time and I had a serious debate about that so Rod had better be good.); Dwight Schultz (Barclay); Louise Fletcher (Kai Winn); Catherine Hicks (Gillian Taylor herself, who I'll be missing the blooper reel for); LeVar Burton; Gates McFadden (but only because I don't have anything better do to, I don't like her that much); Richard Arnold (The World's leading Star Trek scholar); and then Wil Wheaton.
The next day is going to be George Takei; Walter Koenig; Ronald B. Moore (one of the producers); Nichelle Nichols; The Borg War Trailer (more about this later); D.C. Fontana; Dominic Keating and Connor Trineer (but again, only because I'll have nothing better to do); Terry Farrell (who is on at the same time as the De Kelley tribute and I really had to think about that. In fact, I may change my mind when I get there); Gene Roddenberry interview clips; and then the problem. See, Michael and Denise Okuda come on ten minutes after the start of Borg War. I think I kind of want to see Borg War. I also really really really really want to see the Okudas. My problem, ladies and gentlemen.
Anyway, Saturday will get me Nana Visitor and Rene Auberjonois; Kristine M. Smith (the woman who was De Kelley's caregiver and is the reason I feel I can miss the memorial thing for Terry Farrell); Marc Alaimo (Dukat), Casey Biggs (Damar), and Andrew Robinson (Garak); Brannon Braga (who shall be put to death if he doesn't apologize to us); Larry Nemecek; Jonathan Frakes and Brent Spiner; Kate Mulgrew; Avery Brooks, Penny Jerald, and Cirroc Lofton (the Siskos); David A. Williams (presentation on SETI type things); and the concert.
The last day features Robert O'Reilley (Gowron); Nick Meyer; The State of Star Trek address; Leonard Nimoy; William Shatner; Leondard Nimoy and William Shatner (together); Nicole de Boer; Jeffrey Combs, Wallace Shawn, Armin Shimerman, and Max Grodenchik (Four of the five regular Ferengi from DS9); Some awards; and then the farewell.
I leave one week from today.
