    Thursday's schedule is up now. All I see so far is Alfonso Herrera's Exorcist panel. Unfortunately I won't be getting to town until after this is over.

    FOX's breakout thriller returns for a second season. Join Father Tomas (Alfonso Herrera, Sense8), Father Marcus (Ben Daniels, House of Cards), Father Bennett (Kurt Egyiawan, Skyfall), and executive producers Jeremy Slater (Fantastic Four) and Sean Crouch (Numb3rs) for a special fan tribute panel including highlights and insights on the new season.

      Spotlight on J. Michael Straczynski
      It's been a banner year for J.

            Just found a link Mira posted to Pat's Quest Retreats Page:

            Our panel will open up about some of the hardest moments in their lives and how they overcame them. Would you have been able to go on? They will share how they did and how you can too.

            The group will be signing from 3-4pm in the Sails Pavilion after the panel!

              You're closer than I would've been. If I had noticed it earlier I would've picked 23rd.

                Does this mean you will not try to go? Are you going to attend the other panels with Pat as long as they don't interfere with the JMS Spotlight?

                And what rule? I don't remember any rule about you convincing JMS to not announce anything for a day. Where is that in the rules? LOL

                P.S. If you do find that rule somewhere I would like to know because that suggests you have convinced JMS to do things in the past. If you have pulled off this feat before then I am sure you can do it again and I have a list for you.

                  We'll see. I'm not really interested in anything but the 'Be a Star' and 'Space Command' panels. The scrum for getting tickets first thing in the morning is a pain, though. We'll see.

                  And what rule? I don't remember any rule about you convincing JMS to not announce anything for a day. Where is that in the rules? LOL
                  There's a rule that might pertain to your situation. The game's been running for years now so you should be able to find what I mean.

                  P.S. If you do find that rule somewhere I would like to know because that suggests you have convinced JMS to do things in the past. If you have pulled off this feat before then I am sure you can do it again and I have a list for you.
                  Me. Persuade JMS to do/not do things in the past? Rrrrriiiggghhhtttt Silly Looney.... Even if I could (I can't) your list would go after my list. But I know my place: I ask questions.

                    Saturday's schedule is up.

                    Writing for Television, Film, and Comics with J. Michael Straczynski
                    After talent, the most important thing an up-and-coming writer needs is information on how to break into the writing profession as an art and a craft. Having written nearly 400 produced television episodes (with roughly half of that as producer), several hundred comics for DC, Marvel, and Image, and five big-budget movies that have grossed over a billion dollars around the world, J. Michael Straczynski (JMS) once again shares his knowledge with new writers to help them break in and improve their work. Note: This is not a lecture but rather uses a Q&A format, so come equipped with good questions.
                    Saturday July 22, 2017 2:00pm - 3:00pm
                    Room 11

                    Do You Have What It Takes To Be a Star?
                    These panelists will tell the true stories of the worst moments in their professional careers and how they overcame them. From vicious feuds to absolute mortification, these actors bare it all. Would you be able to pick yourself up and keep going? Featuring Claudia Christian (Babylon 5, Atlantis), Mira Furlan (Babylon 5, Lost), Andrea Thompson (NYPD Blue, Babylon 5), Lisa Wilcox (A Nightmare on Elm Street 4), Aaron Douglas (Battlestar Galactica, Imposters), Eddie McClintock (Warehouse 13, Bones), and Patricia Tallman (Babylon 5, Night of The Living Dead).

                      I just saw a tweet from Bruce that he won't be at the Space Command panel, that he was never asked.

                        Oh dear, that doesn't look very good!

                        I do remain curious to see their first installment though.

                          Oh is it finally coming? It has been so long I was under the impression there would be nothing released until they were all finished.

                            All the blurb for the panel says is that they'll show the opening sequence.

                              HA! Haven't they been showing that for, like, six years now?! LOL

                              Sorry to be a downer, but this is one of those projects that seems to have become all hype that it will never deliver on - even if it does get released some decade.

                                Well, they have sets and they're shooting... so, there is definitely movement.
