Houston’s premier comic convention turned out to be a huge appearance for Fleet 31! Our presence attracted positive attention from fellow Star Trek fans who were also in attendance. The Monster Grays worn by Admiral Wilkinson and Commander Scheinemann received much attention.
The con itself was a huge step up from previous years. The whole bottom floor of the GRB was taken up by dealers, artists, guests, and autograph tables. The guest line up was equally impressive, especially for Star Trek fans with Armin Shimerman, Rene Auberjonois, Avery Brooks, and Sir Patrick Stewart all in attendance.
Many photographs were taken and numerous inquiries about Fleet 31 (and what we do) were made. Thankfully we had plenty of business cards provided by the admiral to hand out to curious con-goers. This led to a noticeable influx of new members. All in all it was a pretty good weekend for Fleet 31, and we all had a great time!
