Ottawa Comiccon Offers Sci-Fi Stars, Very Little Parking

The first ever Ottawa Comcicon is being held this Saturday and Sunday at the CE Centre in Ottawa, Ontario, which is in Canada. Originally announced back in the winter with Patrick Stewart, John de Lancie
and Lou Ferrigno in attendance, the convention has been forced to make some changes in the final weeks. Stewart is out, so the possibility of seeing Q and Picard square off again is lost. However, along with Q and The Hulk, filling out the guest list is:

Brett Spiner (Star Trek: TNG, Thereshold), Marina Sirtis (Star Trek: TNG), Jamie Bamber (Battlestar Galactica, Law and Order: UK), Erin Gray (Buck Rogers in the 25th Century), Elvira, Jeremy Bulloch (Boba Fett in Empire Strikes Back), The DeLorean Time Machine, Marie-Claude Bourbonnais (Heroes of the North), Neal Adams (Batman, Green Arrow), Dale Eaglesham (Fantastic Four, Justice Society of America), Darick W. Robertson (Transmetropolitan, The Boys),  Dave Ross (Avengers Westcoast, Captain America), Adam Baldwin (Firefly, Chuck), and replacing Stewart as the Guest of Honour, William Shatner.

I suppose if you've got to replace Captain Picard with anyone, Captain Kirk is the guy you want. Besides, the possibility for sheer crazy increases dramatically with Shatner. I, myself, will be going to see the hero of Canton. I will, in fact, be there, at what I might be proud, or ashamed, to admit is my first comiccon. I guess it depends on how the weekend goes. All I know is that the parking lot holds 1800 cars, and their expecting many, many more than that. Plus, put a lot of geeks in an enclosed space, surround them with action figures and costumed ladies, and the place starts to smell a bit... human.

I suppose, if you see a somewhat bearded man, possibly hatted, stalking around the convention floor looking wholly unpleasant, it could be me. Approach me and ask. Either way, I'll deny it, and if I happen to see it happening to someone else, it will make me laugh.
