I'm only about 50 miles from Seattle.

But I'm busy those two days. -.-

My post was regarding people like me who live in countries where we do not have ST Conventions at all...

If it was a big one in Scandinavia, I would be there, but I have never heard of any big ST conventions in Scandinavia...

The UK might be doable, depending on where it's held...

So, not as easy as you might think for other countries outside the US...
I don't think it has to be a Star Trek convention, I'm pretty sure Cryptic would offer up the DOff for a Sci-Fi Con with a Star Trek presence.

Besides, I know of a fleetie who ended up with a ton of extra code cards from STLV, so you could always hit someone up who attended that con.

Can you guys, you know, not go skipping off to every freakin Con in the country? No wonder why there's so many bugs, no one's ever in the office. You guys are always off goofing off at Cons and probably getting paid to boot cause it's 'work related'!

I'm assuming this was a joke, but will respond as though it is not.

No one on the dev team, to my knowledge, has attended any Star Trek Conventions in the past year, other than Las Vegas 2 weeks ago, and San Francisco last November.

Brandon may attend more, I don't know, but for the most part, while we're offering the Holo Leeta Doff at all of these other conventions, it's from afar.

I'm tired of you're excuses Taco!

Next year I want you to attend negative two cons to make up for your wasted time this year.

It doesn't need to be an official Star Trek Convention, Branflakes has posted a couple times how to get a convention reward from a fan convention or a Star Trek panel at a generic Sci-Fi convention. (send a picture of you at the con/panel and a copy of ticket/flyer/something with a date, if I remember correctly)

On the topic of conventions other then the US/UK ones, is ESPATrek (Spain) still around? FedCon seems to be going strong still in Germany. On the other side of the world, Australia/NZ has OzTrek and occasionally panels at Armageddon Expo.

I saw mention of Scandinavia, try http://www.scifiworld.se/ I don't read the language but they have had Star Trek panels in the past.

Or at the Wizard World one in Ausin last year. They had the full ST:TNG cast including "Wesley" at that one. I have the expensive $300+ full cast photo to prove it.
