Day 2 at Dragon Con officially, but Day 4 for anyone part of the Colonial Fleet. We had two events Wednesday and two on Thursday, so when the show started yesterday, we had already been busy for two days. That makes Dragon Con a 6 day show!
Today was Richard Hatch’s memorial panel at Dragon Con. Axanar Associate Producer Bill Watters was the moderator and arranged some of Richard’s best friends, to be on the panel. I was honored to be one of them along with Mary Anne Butler, Derek Conley and Andrew Gaska. We were also joined in the audience by Kate Vernon, Katee Sackhoff and Michael Hogan. The panel was basically panelists and audience members sharing stories about Richard along with some great video Bill put together with special messages from Bear McCreary and Ron Moore.
The rest of the day was going to the DC cosplay photo shoot with Crysstal, who was sporting her Bombshell Supergirl costume (which is amazing) and hanging with my good friends Alexander Richardson (the artist who handles the bridge console art) and Mark Mosher. There were many carbs and cake!
More tomorrow! LLAP

Glad to hear that there was a panel for Richard, and that the panelists were friends of his. Also, glad to hear that people like Katee were there. It shows not only how a person is missed by who comes to this type of event, but the quality of the person that they felt they must be there.
To Richard Hatch/Captain Apollo/Tom Zarek: a talent that we all miss. A man that we all miss. Thank-you for bringing your characters to life for us.
