So in place of Flanvention, the stars of Firefly and Serenity did a "Backup Bash" and came to hang out with fans, give autographs, and in the case of Nathan Fillion, give away things from his closet.

Apparently the stars who came included Nathan Fillion, Alan Tudyk, Mark Sheppard, Jonathan Woodward, Christina Hendricks and Adam Baldwin.

At the moment it's questionable because Flanvention 2 was recently announced as cancelled. Figures for Booster Entertainment, which is odd since it's all over their site who they're planning to be going on and they won't let me log in to check ANYTHING.

There are other Firefly gatherings, but I know most of them really rape you on the ticket prices.

EDIT:

Booster's being investigated by the police and are apparently not in the position to refund Flanvention 2 tickets or offer any future cons.

Nah, I'll probably not going to go. My dad, whose a Firefly fan and who I was planning to go with, doesn't want to go. He says that cruises aren't his favorite type of vacation, and he doesn't want to be trapped on a boat with a bunch of Serenity nuts.

That's funny. They just took a typical Princess/Royal Caribbean cruise out of San Diego and just put a so-called theme on it, but in place of the washed up television actors who are normally on cruises to "scenic" Ensenada, it's Firefly people.

I'd like to see what bad lounge singer they'd put on that boat.

Time was the cheesy cruises to Mexico's not-so-hot parts was just an excuse for southern Californians to go out and gamble over International waters.

While fan gatherings are really fun, this just sounds like a quick grab at filling those tiny cabins with fans who'll throw money at anything to get a piece of Nathan Fillion and Adam Baldwin.

I'm still holding out for Flanvention. I mean, sure the con planners gouge you for these things, but whatever. Have tons of fun if you go, Xander.

This looks completely awesome. Best part is:

VIP guests including several Big Damn Heros (i.e. Firefly/Serenity cast) have been invited. They are currently waiting for additional details before they commit. We are expecting to have at least two BDHs on board, hopefully more. We also plan to have several non-BDH VIPs on board.


Damn straight.

And of course,


This will be a warm weather cruise, no Jayne hat required (though certainly encouraged).


If you plan to join though, Early Bird prices end January 12. I plan to go.
