AlienCon 2018: The Truth Is Out There

The Three Day Convention was a huge success.

Spirits were high and so were the sights at the Pasadena Convention Center as AlienCon, the state’s premier extraterrestrial and UFO convention, started its three day run. Everyone from Ancient Aliens to celebrity speaker Sean Astin. Sean spoke about being on set for Stranger Things and talked about some other films in his career such as Lord Of The Rings.  Speakers  Jason MartellWilliam HenryRamy Roman and Frankie Glass spoke about Orion and the different places on our planet that align with that constellation.

There were autographs from famed and favorite Ufologists and other celebrities such as Robert Picardo (Star Trek: Voyager) but, just like any convention, it was the people that attended that made such interesting ideas into all out fun. The Con was well organized and spacious, in Pasadena’s searing heat this afternoon it was nice to see so many open-minded people either listening to speakers or just there for information or to shop.  Everyone was having a good time whether decked out in their Star Trek officers uniforms or just wearing jeans and a couple antennae.

The Vendors were really something special as well and came in a wide variety; comic book writers, artists and authors.  Jewelry of vast design all there to reflect the theme of AlienCon and the spirituality that goes hand in hand with Egyptology and the Ancient Alien theory.  In particular I enjoyed the engraved glasses that one shop had with all kinds of different logos from Pop Culture shows and movies, my personal favorite being an etching of the Xenomorph from the film Alien.

A lot of questions and theories were put forth this afternoon, From An Examination of Hyperspace by speaker Mike Bara to The Women of Star Wars by speaker Gwendolyn Boniface.  There was a little something for everyone who ever looked up at the sky and wondered if they were alone in the Universe.  I’m not sure if we are or not but I do know this afternoon was filled with camaraderie and joy and I like to think if they’re looking down on us; they felt it too.
