Comic Con number two!

In a suprise to me move, the owners of Fan Expo, Hobbystar, decided to have a Comic Con over two days, instead of last years one, and more importantly, it was free admission. Well, its not really free if you have to pay 20 bucks to park, but heck, thats true for most events!

Usually these events attract a large number of costumes, and while there were some, I didn't really see too many.

The guests were Alan Ruck, most famous as Cameron Frye from Ferris Bueller's Day Off, as well a character in a Star Trek movie,

Dominic Keating,who played Lieutenant Malcolm Reed on the Star Trek series Enterprise, and Richard Hatch, known to most as the Original Capt Apollo of Battlestar Galactica!

Richard hosted a Q&A sesion where he talked about whats new in his life, what projects he was involved with, and what he felt about some of the other versions of BSG.

One of the biggest things to me was his comment about the original creater of the show, Glen Larson. He apparently provided the rights to the new show, with a condition that if a movie was not made within a certain time period, that those rights would revert back to Glen. That has happened, and he is now working on a remake, not a reimage, a remake of the original BSG, directed by Brian Singer, of X-Man fame.

And of course, I couldn't resist picking up a few autographs from him, as I've been a fan of the show for years. And yes, I do love both versions (I'm not counting Galactica 1980!)

Some of his projects include;

The Pod;
The Great War of Magellen;
and Who the Frak!

He even took some time during the show to check out this guys autograph table!
