It's such as shame Dean's not going to be able to come. It would of been great to see him again. But these things happen and I wish him well. :)

I'm more bothered by the fact Donald&Scott would only be there on sunday. I hoped to meet Donald&Scott because there is something i wanted to give them,but unfortuntly i'll be on my way to NYC on Sunday noon.

I made sure I would be there for all 3 days just in case something like that happened. Flying in on Thursday and flying out on Monday.

Dean's absence is very disappointing. I hope he is ok. Without any details I wonder if its health related.

My Dad is almost exactly Dean's age, only 2 years younger. While he is in perfect health, there was a small scare recently. He was having dizzy spells, brief couple seconds were he did not know were he was! It turns out he has a birth defect in a heart valve. He had it his whole life and never knew about it. He is a 6th degree Blackbelt in Judo and active, still works part time. I guess it was just the slow stress of time that aggravated it. My Dad's ok - There is a way of monitoring his condition.

I hate to be a downer. We just don't know what is happening with Dean. The chance of this type of reunion of Scott, Dean, and Don ever happening again is unlikely. QL revival talks have stalled out. I had been seeing this Con on the 20th anniversary as a substitute for that.

Is there any chance that we could over speak phone call Dean during the Con? SO he could speak to the crowd.

Hey, that's a good idea! I, too, am disappointed that Dean won't be able to come. But perhaps we could do a "Live via telephone, it's Dean Stockwell!" thing.

Janna Galaxy 03-09-2009 01:32 PM

Yeah, that is a good idea :)

Walter Koenig did it for a convention in Adelaide and it sounded just like he was in the room. Did a Q&A live, it was great.

I know I am not in charge BUT

That tone is completely uncalled for. You think he is on his "Deathbed" then you say he has bailed on us! So you expect him to attend the Convention even if he is deathly ill???? :rolleyes

Where do you get this information?
Do you have a reliable source?
Can you give it to us to see as well?

According to IMDB, he is now working (or finished working) on a new BSG episode (or is it a movie).... so he seems fine to me.
Also, I didn't find *any* news on his health or anything that would explain why he retired from the Con... so where do you come up with these stuff?

alsplacebartender 03-18-2009 03:26 AM

While we're not sure the actual reason and have not been told due to it being personal related, he's not sick. He's still working, so he's not ill. There is no reason to believe Dean even has a cold, much less dying.

I'll have to ask now that further comments about Dean's health not happen. He's not sick, he just can't make it for some personal reason. He tried - but couldn't make it. It's that simple, yet unfortunate.

PQC, there's still time to try and sell your ticket if you're so inclined. You have a front row seat - someone will buy it.

Yeah, I downloaded the Podcast. For some reason when playing in Winamp I'm having to use a Pitch/Tempo adjustment otherwise it is very slow and of low pitch.

Anyway, yeah that's just frustrating that Dean has suddenly become scarce in all of this. I really do hope he is OK.

CoriSCapnSkip 03-29-2009 05:10 PM

So nobody knows the deal with Dean?

It's so weird because I dreamed about Sam and Al last night. Then came here and found this.

feldon30 03-30-2009 12:40 AM

Ok, Dean was able to phone in and join in on the festivities. Others will perhaps be able to fill in details better, but he was somewhere there had recently been snow. :)

Scott, Don, and Dean chatted a bit over the loudspeakers and mic and then that was when I had to catch the Taxi to the airport.

jassian 03-31-2009 02:38 AM

I don't really understand the question.
Could you please explain what seems to be the problem?
Weren't there one day tickets to be bought ?
I don't know I couldn't make it.

Do you mean that there were people waiting for tickets and others 'blocked' them and then didn't use them?

I'd say if people payed for the whole weekend
and weren't there then they obviously have a reason for it.
(which would be none of our business anyway)

feldon30 03-31-2009 10:11 AM

I bought my plane tickets before I knew the schedule. But I got to see Scott and Don for a while so I'm more than happy. I will just buy later tickets on Sunday next time. :) Hopefully there's a next time, if Don will either let Deborah do a movie, or do a new series himself. :)

A friend a couple of rows back from the front said that her row was pretty much empty until Sunday. You mean people paid several hundred dollars just to attend one day???

Some people bought their plane tickets months ago, long before we knew that Sunday, not Saturday, would end up being the big day. I'm lucky that I couldn't get a good flight time on Sunday so I decided to stay until Monday anyway.

Re the empty rows, yes, I guess they did pay so much for one day! I was in the first gold row and half the seats were empty all weekend, until people suddenly appeared on Sunday afternoon. Either they're LA locals or they're crazy to travel all that way just to see Scott's appearance and ditch the rest. I mean, just my opinion. :p I was wondering why there were so many empty seats, because I thought people had paid for those tickets and then didn't bother to show up at all. But I was glad that we were able to present a full house when the Big Guys showed up on Sunday.
