Creation Conventions: The Writers’ Strike

Beginning with the Serenity/Firefly Convention at the end of October, through the Farscape Convention the day before the walkout, through the double-header of Stargate Atlantis and BSG two weekends before Thanksgiving, the Writer’s Strike hung over the proceedings, but neither those on stage or the fans showed anything other than strong support for the writers. In the friendly and familiar confines of the Marriot Burbank Airport Convention Center, the well-attended conventions went about connecting fans with their shows, while fans managed their own connecting – and parties, meetups and Krispy Kreme breakfasts – just fine.
