Wizard World Austin Comic Con 2012 Post Convention Wrap-up

We just got back from a fantastic con in our neck of the woods. That's right earthlings, it's time for the Wizard World Austin Comic Con post convention wrap-up. This was a special Trek centric con, that featured the entire bridge crew from Star Trek: The Next Generation. We've been covering news about Austin CC for the past several months and the show really lived up to the hype.

Patrick Stewart, Jonathan Frakes, Gates McFadden, Brent Spiner, Marina Sirtis, LeVar Burton, Michael Dorn and Wil Wheaton were all in attendance. We covered the panels – including The Walking Dead – took pictures and live blogged the event. Not to mention manning our alter-ego's booth (Bye Bye, Robot) with a brand new poster edition that was a huge hit for Trek fans at the con.

Below are some of the highlights from our coverage.

Men of TNG Panel

LeVar on diversity. It is critically important (especially for young people) to see oneself represented in popular culture. It gives them a sense of self and placement in society

Frakes asked Spiner what did it feel like when you transported down to Risa. Spiner; "It hurts" Frakes to Spiner; could you tell a difference between when Colm transported you and when others did? Spiner; I prefer a woman

Q; can you tell us your most memorable TNG episode romance? LeVar; Geordi didn't have sex

Q; boxers, briefs, or commando. Burton; Every time I wear jeans it's always commando. Burton stands and is wearing jeans.

...Fakes; I have both in my drawer back home

...Spiner; I've been wearing the same pair so long I can't tell any more

...Dorn; I always wear Marina's underwear
