the other thought is spending at least 25 dollars to look at vendors merchandise that I can purchase when I can see it online to purchase through the star trek store. yes others will sell collectibles for outrageous money but I wouldn't think about purchasing that or could I afford it.
the thing I will miss out on the most is the items from sto but you have to email a pic to someone and hope they don't screw it up to get the items. makes getting the item more harder then needs to be, certainly not worth the aggravation.
bottom line not attending convention.
congrats to everyone that is going and hope you enjoy yourselves.
Seems like an odd reason not to go to a ST Con, but whatever floats your boat. However, the way I understand it is that the participants will line up in the lobby, and parade to the ballroom for the costume contest.

ravin, if your correct that would be cool, but that's not what I am reading

Yeah, that didn't happen. They lined them up on one side of the ballroom, and brought them up 10 at a time. The winner was a woman dressed as Kai Opaca, 2nd went to a young girl in a very convincing borg costume, and 3rd was a girl dressed like seven of nine.

I cheered pretty loudly for Kai Opaka. It was a good costume. And she had her own orb of the prophets. Considering it was a DS9 themed con, she totally knocked it out of the park. But the Andorians who were around the con but not in the contest, were freakin amazing as well.

Oh yeah ... I went! And won round three of the Yes-No Trivia contest! It was a blast! And I got my picture taken with Avery Brooks.

This con was the breath of fresh air and fun I've needed the past few months. So wow.

Ok, so the codes were handed out, I redeemed it through "My Account," now how do I claim it ingame? I went to the C-Store to "Legacy Unlocks" and it's not there.
