Overall, my impressions of Balticon were good, though, in spite of my annoyance about the program. For one thing, the con suite was always well stocked, and registration and other volunteers were very helpful. For another, Worldcons tend toward the older crowd so much, it was good to see so many young people are a con. I also noted an interesting trend I had not observed before; several of the hall costumes I saw were for crewmen in Star Trek TOS. No Klingons, though. I can't recall ever seeing that before.
And, for no other reason than I think every writer or friend of a writer should see it, I am including the video that's making the rounds by mystery writer Parnell Hall. It's sad and hilarious at the same time.
