Andy, Chris, Chris, me, Diana, Chris, Alexander and Gary at the Star Trek shoot.

Saturday, Sep. 5th

Saturday we woke up at 12:05 and Diana and I quickly got ready and went to the Star Trek photo shoot.

USS Ares patch designer Chris Bunye as Mackenzie Calhoun with another captain of the Excalibur!

The Trek never ends!

Lee Benjamin gets in the picture!

After that it was more food, booze and a romp around the dealer’s room with my Atlanta gaming buddies.  I lived in Atlanta for 10 years and am the guy responsible for turning all my buddies onto Warhammer 40,000.  We are all huge geeks (as if you hadn’t guessed that by now).

My Atlanta gaming buddies. Me, Curtis, John, Steve, Chip. We played Warhammer 40K for almost 10 years together!

Axanar Concept Artist in charge of bridge panels, Alexander Richardson. He is from the UK, so gets excited about American food!

One always needs Chocolate Nachos!

Maybe some of the best cosplay of the weekend was this Flash Gordon group!

Sunday, Sep. 6th

Brunch was with my good friend and fellow Atlanta entrepreneur Raymon Tsao and his family.  We went off site to a nice French restaurant and had a great time.  The afternoon was then spent shopping for items at the dealer’s room, where Diana found an amazing corset that will serve as the basis for steampunk cosplay as well.

Diana tried on this cool “Green Arrow” style top.

Then we headed to the Hyatt for the Parsec awards (after a brief change of clothes).

Diana and I were presenters at the Parsec Awards.

Then it was off to our panel!

The panel had about 150 people attending.  We showed Prelude to Axanar and the Vulcan scene.

Then it was off to the annual Colonial Fleet party.  But that is another blog post….

    Dear Alex,

    Thanks for the photos, my apologies for not attending but it was more or less a money issue. Hopefully, I am sure I will be able to continue my support to you this year, so keep up the great work. I am looking forward to this years releases, and will keep supporting you and the mission.
