Fedcon Day 3

 

See our other Fedcon Posts

Our day started by returning to our hotel at 4am for a brief sleep before finding ourselves oddly still alive when we awoke a few hours later!

Gates McFadden Fedcon

We ran to the Chase Masterson talk only to find she was in the small hall and it was full! We were denied! After Star Trek talks there was only one other thing we could think of; food and drink. We needed it like a Jem’Hadar needs Ketral White!

We went to the hotel buffett and here’s something a bit odd about Fedcon, you need tokens to buy food!? So we went to buy tokens, but they didn’t accept credit cards. So we went to the ATM machine. And you know what? It was out of order!
We walked bloody miles (actually 500 metres but with a hangover – that’s an eternity!) to get cash. We found food on the way!

After sitting through the Jenna Coleman talk we were ready for Gates McFadden!

Gates McFadden

Gates came bouncing onto the stage dancing and leaping. One thing we love about Gates is she has the body language of a dancer. I don’t think she can help herself and it’s infectious, we want to skip and twirl down the corridors each time we see her.

Something else we have noticed is that she gets funnier each time we see her on stage which made sense when she explained to the audience that she was stalked for a long time. This made her very nervous (understandably!)at appearing at events.

Marina Sirtis

Marina took to the stage and told us she was feeling emotional. Saturday night there had been another terrorist incident in London. When she declare that Brits would not be defeated the audience went wild.
It felt like we were being given a big hug from everyone in the audience. After the Brexit fiasco it was welcome to that level of solidarity with our European neighbours.
