No, I'm afraid not.

I visited the LV Hilton four years ago when The Experience was there but that was all.

Will you pay $200 to have your photo taken with Patrick? He charges more than Nimoy and Shatner!

Personally, I wouldn't pay that kinda money for him. If that's what he's charging.

$199, due to "limited" availability. I'm sure he'll be able to get away with it. But for the same price you can get a pic each with Shatner and Nimoy. Has Patrick become the new rockstar of Trek, if he can get away with charging more for a photo-op than Shatner or Nimoy, at a convention featuring all three? Patrick, no doubt, is in bigger demand as an actor, but this is a Trek convention.

I guess the pricing structure would seem to indicate so.

However, I think that's certainly pushing (exceeding) a reasonable limit. Since many people will have spent money travelling to and maybe also staying in LV those kinds of charges on top soon add up.

I would only charge Sir Patrick $50 to have his pic taken with me.

Hey, not everyone can afford the 200 bones.

Well Im back from the show and it was a hoot! Creation is a terrible outfit but they do bring the noise. I bumped into Patrick Stewart, Brent Spiner, Leonard Nimoy, Bill Shatner, Robert Picardo and Michael Dorn. I love being there just being submersed up to my eyeballs in Trek.

Peace
