Ok nerds. We know you’re descending on Kansas City this weekend for the epic Planet Comicon conference featuring science fiction celebrities like William Shatner, Sylvester McCoy and almost the entire cast of Star Trek: The Next Generation.
But in between catching glimpses of Michael Dorn, Wil Wheaton, LeVar Burton and the blue Power Ranger, we thought you may want to eat, drink and scope out our fine city.
Here we present you the nerd’s guide to a weekend in Kansas City:
Science fiction conventions can feel like an alien world for newcomers.
People can speak differently at them, often invoking insider references about their favorite shows and comics.
And it’s a world where die-hard fans dress differently.
For instance, this weekend’s Planet Comicon in Kansas City is expected to attract droves of costumed convention-goers, dressed up like their favorite protagonists and antagonists from sci-fi novels and cinema.
