Some stuff I would like to try to see:



Friday

Start off your Expo weekend with two of the dazzling women from the Enterprise-D as they recount their days on the set of TNG, what they loved about it and what they've been doing since.

Saturday

Fringe Panel - Jaskia Nicole & John Noble
Room: Corral - Main Events Room
Time: 11:00 - 12:00

Focus in on Sci-Fi's cult favourite  Fringe with Astrid and Walter!  On screen, Astrid has had to deal with Walter's quirky science and quirkier character.  But how crazy are these two when the cameras are not rolling?  Join us as we find out!

Brent Spiner, Wil Wheaton & LeVar Burton
Room: Corral - Main Events Room
Time: 12:00 - 1:00

The Calgary Expo's TNG series continues with the droid, the kid, and the blind man who made the ship fly. As the actors behind Data, Wesley Crusher, and Geordi LaForge, these three were fast friends from the start. Be there as they stroll down memory lane and recount how their roles on TNG have affected them throughout the years.

Sanctuary - Amanda Tapping

Sanctuary is a Canadian Sci-Fi/Fantasy television series that follows the exploits of Dr. Helen Magnus and her team to provide a safe haven for so-called “Abnormals”.

Sunday

BSG Panel
Room: Boyce Theatre

In the beginning there were two great friends Starbuck and Apollo. Now Richard Hatch's character is anything but a friend to Katee's Starbuck.

CONFLICT, I WANNA SEE BOTH

Amanda Tapping - Sanctuary for Kids
Room: Palomino E

Jonathan Frakes, Marina Sirtis & Michael Dorn
Room: Corral - Main Events Room
Time: 12:00 - 1:00

It’s Star Trek: The Next Generation’s love triangle. Riker, Troi and Worf blazed into our hearts as part of the beloved Enterprise crew for seven amazing seasons and four movies to boot.

Presented by SPACE

Walking Dead Panel
Room: Corral - Main Events Room
Time: 1:00 - 2:00

Oh, I should look at the schedule! I just bought my tickets today. As far as any photo ops go, you can buy those there, right...?
jennifer jensen: FRINGE: DOUBLEjenniferjensen on April 11th, 2012 04:02 am (UTC)
Yay! I like how none of the panels start earlier than 11:00 in the morning! Cause I've gone to cons where they've started at like 8:30.

Yep, you can buy them there. I probably won't buy mine until I get to the con. I still haven't made up my mind what all I'm getting.
