Dragon*Con 2000

Dragon*Con 2000 took place in Atlanta, Georgia from June 29 through July 2, 2000. Several Babylon 5 guests attended including Andreas Katsulas, Richard Biggs, Bill Mumy, Jason Carter, Tracy Scoggins, Walter Koenig, Bob Krimmer, Stephen Austin, David Allen Brooks, and Peter David.

On the next nine pages I will bring you photos, news, and impressions from the convention.

One thing Dragon*Con likes to do is throw as many Babylon 5 guests as possible together in one huge panel on Sunday afternoon. All of the Babylon 5 actors attended this panel except for David Allen Brooks and Walter Koenig.

Richard Biggs was especially entertaining at the full-cast panel. Unimpressed with the speed of the staff member taking questions with a roving microphone, Richard finally said, "Give me that," and jumped up to take the microphone for himself. He spent the rest of the panel running through the room in a manic frenzy taking questions from fans.

Elsewhere at the Convention

Down in the gaming room, Babylon 5 fans were having fun with the collectible card game and the Babylon 5 wars miniatures game.

For the Babylon 5 CCG social tournament, the Ranger in charge decided to hold one huge game with all the players instead of several smaller preliminary rounds. The result was a massive 10-player game in which almost every faction available in the game was used.
