"There are those who believe that life here began out there, far across the universe, with tribes of humans who may have been the forefathers of the Egyptians, or the Toltecs, or the Mayans. Some believe that there may yet be brothers of man who even now fight to survive, somewhere beyond the heavens."

People of the Fleet,

Suffice to say that the Second Annual Fayetteville Comic-Con was A Resounding Success! Over the Two Days the con took Place at the Crown Expo Center,Many A Creature made the rounds in the Exposition Hall and found out why they said: "If it's Geek,We got it!".

The Gunstar Trireme,First Escort of the Raven Battle Group, Had the Privilege of Representing the BFC at the Con;All Those who Visited  during the Two Days were Informed of the BFC's Mission to Provide more than the Usual Fan Experience;To that effect,Many Flyers and Business Cards were Handed out;With Good Luck, We should see some New Members in the future;People were Still asking me About it While I was waiting for My Ride Home Sunday Afternoon at the Close of the Con;It seems there Is some Interest about the Saga of A Star World here in the Sandhills.

  Most of those who Visited the Table Pretty Much Remember the Original '78 Series;There were some Who Haven't watched the Whole New Series,And,Once or Twice, the Caprica Series was mentioned;One Person Asked about any News Regarding the New Movie being Worked on;Others said they only Heard the Name Battlestar Galactica,But never watched It;Lots of People to Convert!

 In the Meantime, All Manner of Characters were present: Jedi Knights,Superheroes and Villians,Fuzzy Creatures of all kinds,Videogame ,Animae, and other Fantasy Players;Oh, Dart Vader and his Troops were present;There were Aerialists,Martial Artists,and Medieval Swordsmen giving Demonstrations;A whole Section of the Floor was Reserved for the Gamers,And, A DJ Kept the Crowd well entertained.

One of the Guest Headliners were Sam Jones,Better known as FLASH GORDON; As I approached his table for his Autograph,He asked if We had met Before;Ah, Methinks my Bald Head and Handlebars almost gave him a Ming Flashback;We did Discuss Max von Sydow,and how He was still hanging in there at 83 Years of Age.

Another Star was Fred 'The Hammer' Williamson,Star of Blaxploitation Films of the '70s; He playfully chided Me on my not having A Smartphone;It's OK, the Hammer Didn't know about the Toasters turning Tech Against us.

Other Stars included cast from the 'Walking Dead',The Voice of Ash Ketchum from Pokemon,and Artists from the well-Known Comic Book Industry,and some Power Rangers;There were Panel Discussions,Trivia Questions,and Door Prizes;Vendors were plentiful, selling wares from Classic Toys,Art Prints,Crafts,Game pieces,Jewelry,Figures of all Sizes,and yes,Comic Books.

Speaking for Myself, I had a Blast! And, I'm sure those who also came did as well;I'm already Thinking of what I intend to do Next Year.
