The price for the priority ticket is INSANE. The year I went there it was 500 and included free autographs and photos with William Shatner and a bunch of other people. What are they thinking?
That being said, I am totally going to go.
Yeah… $750, per person, for the deluxe tickets? That’s insane. I don’t even kknow what perks come with it, but nothing short of speaking part on one of the shows is worth that.
I’d guess the hotel room isn’t part of that package? So figure almost double the price, if you need a hotel.
The standard 3 day for $155 may be worth it (Although the hotel rooms are still way pricy). But they need to announce more guests, muy pronto.
Kate Mulgrew? Sure. She’s cool. Wil Wheaton? Same. But so far it’s those two and the lady who plays Rafi on “Picard,” and I could not stand her character (In fairness, “Picard” was shockingly bad).
Need more quality guests. DS9 actors, please, and I mean main ones. TNG, sure, DISCO, fine, and I’d like to see Anson Mount too. Waiting to hear who else they come up with.
Also, aside from guests, what else will be happening in Chicago? They are really short on details right now. Gonna need more for me to justify the ticket and hotel prices
