      "There are no good wars. War is always the worst possible way to resolve differences. It degenerates and corrupts both sides to ever more sordid levels of existence, in their need to gain an advantage over the enemy. Those actively involved in combat are almost always damaged goods for the rest of their lives. If their bodies don't bear scars, their minds do, ofttimes both. Many have said it before, but it can't be said to enough, war is hell. "

        Not likely. It is a really rare thing. I think it stays where it is, owner-wise.

          Speaking of tickets, Looney needs $799.00.


          But seriously, I do. . . . .


          Actually, other than that everything else seems pretty reasonable. Looks like everybody is around $25 per Autograph and $30 for a photo op. But to be on the safe side, I need someone to give me $799.00 for The Ultimate B5 Experience. I can cover the $9.95 fee.

            Seriously people, nobody wants to give Looney $799.00. Thanks everybody. Thanks a lot! No Ultimate Babylon 5 Experience for Looney. Way to go everyone. . . . (But seriously folks, I can't decide, Bruce Package, Claudia Package, Basic B5 Package? It is a conundrum. Thoughts?)

            Did I miss something? I noticed a lot of talk about Marshall Teague and the sword, but he isn't on the guest list that is posted in this thread nor is he listed on the Space City Con site. ? ? ? ? ? ?

              Sorry, you're on your own for the VIP membership. If I could, I'd do it for myself. Selfish of me, I know.

              Marshall seems to have come and gone on the photo line-up too, but it seems firm now that he'll be there, given the Facebook posts and photos of the K'Tok. The website seems to be lagging behind.

                Is there any chance anyone knows what the panels will be like at Space City Con? At PhxCC, Walter, Claudia, and JMS were the only ones to give individual panels, and then of course there was the one big reunion panel. It was a little hard for some to get a word in during the big reunion, so I didn't know if maybe there'd be smaller group panels at SCC (main cast, supporting cast, men of B5, women of B5, the Human cast, the alien cast, etc.) or more individual panels this time around. It's probably too soon to tell.

                Also, does anyone know what the VIP mixer will be like? ("Mixer" -- one of those intimidating buzzwords for an introvert )

                  The only panel I'm pretty sure about is that there'll be a Free Babylon 5 panel. Given that they've got so many more guests already, I think a mass reunion panel would be a mistake.

                  Agreed that 'mixer' is kinda vague but the few I've attended are generally just hotel (or convention center) function rooms with too little seating where the stars mingle with the fans. There's usually a small cash bar and it's not usually more than a couple of hours long, or the stars are often only there for at most a couple of hours even though the function might continue.

                  The people watching is always going to be good and pretty much anybody you talk to will have a similar interest.

                    With my plane tickets purchased, I'm officially going now too. So, I'm facing the same decision about VIP package.

                    But, can someone explain what the advantage is of getting a Bruce or Claudia package as opposed to the Anla'Shok (Stellar) package? Bruce & Claudia are $50 more, but the only difference is a photo voucher which usually only costs $30 anyway. I'm wondering what the other $20 gets you.

                    Also, did you notice that the Babylon 5 cast photo is now gone from the photo pre-order page (or if it's not, my eyes passed right over it several times)? I can't decide whether I can/will spend that much money on another cast photo (got one at PhxCC), but now I'm wondering if the only way to get it is through the Ultimate B5 VIP membership that costs $799.

                    I just sent these and several other questions about VIP status and photos to SpaceCityCon to see what they say.

                      I got a response from the CEO/Director of Space City Con with answers to all my questions...

                      Actor-Specific VIP Memberships: Sometimes agents will allow people with those VIP statuses to have some private time with those actors, but there's no guarantee. They're working on that.

                      VIP Seating: When it says you get to sit up front for "Q&As," there's no added expectation/obligation to ask questions during the Q&A. It's basically just better seating. (This was one of those "just in case" kind of questions; admittedly the closest thing to a dumb question I had.)

                      B5 Cast Photo: The $299 B5 cast photo option will be back on the page soon. They're working on getting the new system to calculate that option a certain way.

                      Autograph & Photo Pre-Sales vs. Onsite: Everything will be available onsite and at the same price. The pre-sales are just for (1) the added choice of credit instead of cash; (2) trying to predict demand of certain actors for scheduling purposes.

                      Non-Prof. Photos at Table with Our Own Camera: They don't know for sure who will allow it and how much they would charge. Right now, Jason Momoa is the only one leaning toward no photos at the table.

                        Thanks for the update. I am now totally up in the air as to if I am going to be able to make it, but it is good to know more specifics. I appreciate your efforts Ninja_Squirrel.
