I guess it had to happen some time. I think I only went to one Star Trek convention, and Nichelle Nichols was the guest at that one. I say I think I only went to one because I've been to ComiCon a bunch of times and they have kind of the same feel, especially in ComiCon's earlier days, but I think I only went to one dedicated Star Trek con.
Going off on a tangent, a friend of mine was really into Space: 1999, and they had a convention for that back in the late '80s or early '90s up in L.A., so for kicks three of us went up for that. Barbara Bain was the guest speaker there, and I got the impression she had no idea why people were so into that show, but she was very nice to everyone. I think only about 40 people showed up, and it was in a very small conference room at a hotel.
