FedCon 22 - 2013 - Düsseldorf
Welcome to my report on the FedCon 22, which took place in Düsseldorf, Germany.
This year, we had three special Star Trek Phase II panels where we were able to show a number of short films. As in past years, we also filmed the Press Conference in full length.
We are still putting together this website and will be adding more pictures and videos soon. We have some great material to show so please come back again, shortly.

Star Trek Phase II at FedCon
This year, Star Trek Phase II originally planned to have James Cawley and Brian Gross as guest stars. They were both planned to come to FedCon, but work got in the way and they had to cancel at short notice. Tobias Richter, Stefan Mittelstrass and myself (Peter Walker) put together an alternative Phase II program for FedCon at short notice.
James Cawley is now America's number 1 Elvis Presley impersonator and has so many bookings that it is difficult for him to get away. Unfortunately, he was booked to give an important concert during the FedCon period and considering how much money he needs to earn to pay for the shoot in June, he could not afford to cancel that concert.
All the same, it was possible for us to put together alternative panels where Tobias gave a panel on the special effects he created for Phase II and I gave two, 2-hour panels showing behind the scenes videos and our short films including our latest short film "Going Boldly" featuring Brian Gross. We were also able to show some important scenes from the new episodes.
I took only a few pictures this year as I was so busy with preparing the Phase Ii panels that I held. The pictures I did take will become available on this website, shortly.
