Dragon Con 2008: The First of Many Posts

Continuing the trend of years past to be a control freak ;p, I've worked up a Dragon Con schedule. I'm sure it will change between now and the con.  If you take a look at the long list of panels it includes fandoms I'm not part of.  I figured I'd include some panels I thought might be of interest to anyone going looking at this post. The Galactica panels are my priority with Stargate being the next fandom of interest. I definitely would like to see at least one of the Heroes panels, but not all four. The rest?  Who knows?

Things of note:

Adam Baldwin canceled, again.  I've looked at enough con schedules over the past couple years to see a tendency on Adam's part to sign up for a lot of cons and appearing at very few.  That's not a slam, just an observation.  I'm sure this cancellation was due to filming on Chuck.

The X-Files track schedule is *still* not up.  Sorry, thomasina75, I was thinking of you! ;)

There are panels at night this year.  It's a sign of how big DC has gotten.

Another sign is that panels are being held at the Marriott, Hyatt, and Sheraton.  Fortunately, most of what I'm interested in is at the Marriott, but I can forsee a lot of running between hotels for people.  And how far away is the Sheraton? 

When I first looked at panels, I noticed a few people were scheduled for more than one panel a day which I thought was a no-no at DC.  James Marsters schedule has been adjusted so he is only doing one a day, but George Takai is scheduled for two within a half hour of each other at two different hotels on Friday.  I'm wondering if adjustments will still be made and the different tracks haven't communicated very well.

Torri Higginson has just been added!  That could be interesting.

And if you are attending DC, feel free to leave a comment and maybe we can meet up at some point. :)  Assuming my flights don't get fraked up I'll be arriving early Thursday evening and leaving late Monday afternoon.
