How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
I have been to many Star Trek Conventions in the past and this should have been one of the best - but it wasn't. It could have been one of the best because there were lots of available Trek actors. But the Trek actors looked bored and in need of money. I've never been to a Convention where you tell an actor he played your favorite character in all of Trek and he replies by trying to sell a cheap poster for $20 which would cost another $30 for his autograph. The vending area was way too small and the lines for Next Gen people too long. Meanwhile the Voyager actor that played my fave character got bored and took a photo of two DS9 actors, one of whom flipped him the bird. After driving all the way from Redondo to Burbank, we ended up leaving after about an hour. Highlights were meeting the Okudas who were walking around, as was Wall-E and R2-D2.
