Born to lead (obviously): the baby has taken over the Center Seat!

When Gingi of Domestic Geek Girl asked to borrow our Captain’s Chair for a photo shoot of her baby while showcasing NerdKungFu‘s new line of Star Trek Onesies, the Continuum was more than happy to oblige!  Check ‘em out!! :D

Is it February 27, 2015 yet?  I instanpensacontly went from “Preparing for Pensacon 2014″ to “Experiencing Pensacon 2014″ to “Dreaming of Pensacon 2015.”

It’s hard to believe that it’s been over a week since the convention.  I had intended to write this blog early as I get back into the swing of things.  But just in case you’ve been living under a rock for the past year, haven’t caught the news, haven’t been seeing billboards around Pensacola, haven’t been keeping up with fandom, etc., Pensacon is the newest convention to hit Northwest Florida.  

And hit it did!  With over 80 special guests and 17,000 fans in attendance, it turned out to be a huge success!  Mike Ensley and his team pulled this off with a good amount of grace that made it look like running a con of this magnitude easy.  And considering this is only Pensacon’s first year, that’s no small feat!  The con was so well run that it was enjoyed by fans, guests, and local businesses alike.

Last week at Pensacon, members of the USS Continuum hosted “The Trek Awards 2014.”

Peter Arce, David Phillips (from the USS Jubilee), Lauren Schraer, Luci Smith, and myself presented their nominees, stating their case for each.  The audience, in turn, voted on each award.  Totals tabulated and presented by Christina Tuttle.

The full results (with clips) can be found here.

Getting ready for Pensacon!

On February 12, 2014, in Captain's Log, Events, News, by Jay

It has been a turbulent last few weeks for us here at the Continuum.  After having my computer stolen (sigh), I’ve been slowly, but surely, getting my life back in order. As we have done in years past, the Continuum has been preparing for a great and exciting 2014! And our first major event is coming up in a little over a week away.

For the past several months, the entire Pensacola area has been quite a buzz for Pensacon, happening Friday to Sunday, February 21-23, 2014 at the Pensacola Bay Center and Crowne Plaza Grand Hotel. A few of our members were even fortunate enough featured in both Pensacon commercials, which can be seen here:

Of course, the Continuum will be available throughout the weekend. Our recruiting table will have our Captain’s Chair, which we continue to improve upon :). Come see what we’ve done next! We also have a few Star Trek Playmate Collectibles from the 1990s that were looking to part with. Check out our table for more information.

We’ll also be hosting “The Trek Awards” panel, Saturday at 12:30 p.m. in “Room D” of the Bay Center. What’s the most interesting piece of Trek-nology? Who made the best couple? Who were the best of friends? These questions and more will be decided by you, the audience. So come by, hear the arguments, and cast your vote!
