    That was a great interview of the Jumpcon organizer Shane Senter. When asked why he has booked the often over looked (in the US) Doctor Who guests, he said the magic words "Because I am a Doctor Who fan."
    I am so excited about this new Golden Age of Cons.
    I'll probably be doing a bit of traveling to hit some of these around the country.
    Boston is a must with Mary Tamm, Frazier Hines, and Debra Watling. Then Wash DC is must for any Babylon 5 fan - they have 14 guests from B5 booked - amazing.

    There were alot of people on Babylon 5.
    At Jumpcon the "A List" people are Bruce Boxleitner (Captain Sheriden), Tracy Scoggins (Captain Lockley 5th season), Mira Furlan (Delenn), Jerry Doyle (Security Chief Garibaldi), and Stephen Furst (Vir).

    Other "A" listers not at this con are Peter Jurasic (Londo Molari), Claudia Christian (Susan Ivonava), and Michael O'Hare (1st season Capitan Sinclair). Richard Biggs (Dr Franklin) and Andreas Katsulas (G'Kar) died a few years ago.

    At Jumpcon the "B list" people are Jason Carter (Marcus Cole), Walter Koenig (PSI Cop Alfred Bester), Pat Talman (Telepath Lyta Alexander), Ed Wasser (Morden laison to the Shadows), Joshua Cox (Bridge crew member), Mary Kay Adams (G'kar's assistant N'atoth),
    Peter Woodward (technomage), Magie Egan (ISN news anchor), and Kitty Swank (senator).

    Then there were too many other B listers to mention. The show definitly had a large cast. This con will be a dream for B5 fans - especially since the show has been off air for such a long time. --Billy

    i was only joking. i was a HUGE B5 Fan...

    some one once told me that... one one episode there was supposed to be a TARDIS in a corridors with the security team looking at it and it would never be mentioned again but the scene was never filmed. id love to think that was what was intended.

    shame it never happened.

    I'm *highly* skeptical of this working out in the long run.

    Just the sheer logistics of scheduling so many small conventions week after week, getting guests and all.

    And then there are localized problems. For example, for their trip to Denver in 2009, they've scheduled for the weekend of May 15-17.

    Starfest 2008 is scheduled for Apr 18-20, and will likely be around the same dates in 2009.

    So, two sci-fi conventions in a month. And Starfest doesn't attract large crowds as it is.

    So, this is certainly overkill.

    I also see that they're scheduling a JumpCon in Anaheim the same weekend as next year's Gallifrey One. Confused

    I see that Garrick "Biggs" Hagon is slotted in for the Boston show. However his personal website fails to mention his turn as Ky in The Mutants.

    Bruce Boxleitner might have been good in B5 but what about TRON? Also Jeffery Combs from Re-Animator. Plus three people from Doctor Who. I really want to go.

    Oh yeah man, I loved Tron. I was into the movie, the vid games (though primitive by todays standards.
    I wonder if Bruce talks much or remembers anything about that movie?
    Here's a piece of unusual trivia for ya: making another connection to Babylon 5 - Peter Jurassic (Londo Molari of the Centauri from B5) played a bit part in Tron as the character 'Krom.' He was the guy already locked in the cell when Tron got captured.
    BTW Jason if you live in Red Hook I live like 2 miles from you in Ridgewood/Glendale. I'm surprised I never spotted that scarf around your neck out on the street.

    Craig, I tend to think that too, but in browsing Jumpcon's ticketing page Ive come up with the theory that this type of con caters, not to the fan who wants to pay a general admission and hear the guests and maybe buy a few autographs, but instead to the fan who has a lot of money and wants a more personal closeup experience with their fav stars.
    They are charging $55-$75 each seat for a breakfast, lunch, or dinner with your fav star, $30-$40 for either photos or autographs of each, $5 per panel attended, and so on. Banquets, Cabaret's, cocktail hour, after show parties are additional (not cheap) charges, and even seminars like Jason Carters acting lessons are like $100 per ticket.
    I think Jumpcon doesnt expect as many attendees as other cons, but expects more money per attendee.
    I do believe in this day and age that there are a lot more of us older geeks who have good jobs and are willing to spend more money than the typical con-goer of 15 to 20 years ago (when the majority of SciFi fans were teenagers). I think Jumpcon is basing their hopeful success on this idea. But what do I know.

    I'm not particularly interested in most of those charged events, Im into the panels and Q and A's so it shouldn't be expensive for me - which means, according to my theory, I wont be contributing to the sucess of Jumcon. But some people are gonna jump all over the opportunity to sit down with famous people for three meals a day.
    Look how popular the Cruises have become.
    We will know if this Jumpcon thing is working after the third date in Boston. Who knows, the whole tour might get cancelled after that - but at least we'll have gotten Mary, Frazier, and Debra over here in the US for one unforgettable event.

    Mike I know you gotta be thinking about coming to Boston? --Billy

    Yeah, you're right; I didn't look too closely at how their conventions are truly going to work.

    It's an interesting model, and even though I don't think it'll work, I'm curious to see them give it a shot. So, I guess we'll have to see it in action. Smile

    Just listened this morning, it was great.
    Good on him for having the courage and ambition to pull off something this massive. I think it's fantastic.

    In Australia we have a similar travelling convention called Supanova. For years it's only travelled between Sydney and Brisbane but this year it's expanding to Perth and Melbourne as well. For a large country with only 7 major cities, travelling to 4 of them is impressive, so I can't imagine covering the same geographical distance but with ten times the amount of cities.

    And the guests sound fantastic, if only we could get the same standard of guests down here. (I would love to meet Frazier and Wendy) *le sigh*

    bye bye david :(

    I live in Upstate NY, about an hour south from Albany and 90 min north from NYC. Ridgewood/Glendale do not sound familiar to me

    Not likely I'm afraid. It's a bit moot with two other possible trips to the Boston area this year. A wedding in October and a plan to maybe travel to Foxborough in June to see TFC play the Revs.

    Beyond that it's not really my kind of event. I wish them all the best and will help to get the word out but it's not the sort of event that really excites my interest. If they ever come up to Toronto I'll show my support by attending but I won't be traveling.

    Besides, for the amount of money it would cost me to fly to Boston in July I could wait a couple of months and fly to the UK for less.

    I just saw on the Jumpcon site that Adrian Paul from Highlander will be there. Also both Holly's will be there for Red Dwarf fans. This just seems to get better and better. Now if only they could get a previous Doctor. Maybe?

    Loved Adrian Paul in Highlander The TV Series.

    Although the Fourth film is poor I thought he was good in it.

    Would have liked to have seen him in the James Bond role.
