Phoenix Comicon approached fast and went by even faster. My spouse and I attended Friday to Sunday. We had just left and missed the fire alarm (thankfully). I enjoyed all of the sessions I took part in and meeting some of the writers down in the Exhibit Hall. I even learned a bit. All of my panels were well attended and a blast. I especially enjoyed the, “How Star Trek Changed the World,” panel. We had some great discussions. And to think I owe it all to answering a call for panelists on Facebook.

I can remember, not too long ago, when I was on the other side of the table as a fan discussing my favorite shows with the experts. I feel a little funny calling myself an expert but as I learned this weekend I do know a great deal about Star Trek. More than that, I know what it is like to be a fan, buy the DVD’s, collectibles, dress in the costumes and drop what I’m doing to watch an episode for the Xth time. That is what makes events such as Comicon so special. Where else can you gather 40,000+ fans of, well, you name it and it was there? I know it is some 360 days away but I am already looking forward to next year.
