A Successful Infiltration of the Great Allentown Comic Con’s 5th Anniversary Show

Nichelle Nichols at the Con

The Great Allentown Comic Con’s 5th Anniversary Show was this past weekend and I was there. I had three things in mind, buy some things to read either comic book or just book, buy some art and hear Nichelle Nichols speak. And I was successful on all three fronts.

So, why bury the lead, the last thing I did during my infiltration was go to a panel where Nichelle Nichols did a short 40 minute Q & A, it was fantastic! She is a fascinating woman. She spoke of the vision of the future that Gene Roddenberry had and of her fellow actors, directors and the new and old Trek.

Breaking the Fourth Wall: Recapping My Year-Long Content Experiment

From the desk of Agent Palmer

Starting last November 1, as the founder and primary writer of this blog, I embarked on a journey to create content – not just LOTS of content, but consistent content as well. Two posts per week for one year was my goal. And 12 months later, I have successfully completed my year of content.

In that year, I eclipsed my self-imposed two posts per week by averaging about two and a quarter posts per week. The stats never lie and they say that after one whole year, I have published not the minimum 104 posts, but 117, with the help of five guest posts (one from Field Agent Wacker and four from Agent Parker).
