This report was transcribed from rough notes taken during the weekend's events. All quotes are paraphrases, accurate to the best of our recollection/notes, but also subject to the failure of both. Huge thanks go to PyeCat, for filling in the gaps and correcting (hopefully most of) the errors; be sure to check out his site.

There was a bit too much self-congratulatory backslapping between the two head honchos of Creation Entertainment, who seemed to have forgotten that no one was there to see or listen to *them*; additionally, despite their repeated assertions that they were 30-year fans of the genre, they repeatedly made glaring errors with regard to Farscape (Did you know that D'Argo wielded a Quatta Blade? Yeah, neither did we...and we didn't know that John's name was spelled "Chrichton", either, or that Leviathans were enslaved using Control Yolks...).
This year's convention was less organized than last, due in large part to the cancellation, which played havoc with everyone's schedules. For example, there were no blooper reels, because David Kemper wasn't able to be involved in the event planning due to time constraints, and he had usually provided the blooper reel in the past. However, those Farscape cast and production team members who were able to attend were delightful, funny, thought-provoking, highly entertaining, and full of great anecdotes to share. If you get a chance to see them in person, it's worth taking.
