For those of you that have an interest, the first Earth2 convention will be held this April
New Pacificon '96, the FIRST "Earth 2" convention, will be held at the Pinnacle Four Seasons Hotel in Albuquerque, NM, on April 19-21, 1996. Registration is $60, with day rates available. Planned activities are: field trips to E2 filming sites, fan fiction readings, panels, merchandise, a "Grendler Bar and Grille" dance, and possibly a celebrity guest or two. (To be announced later). Save your pennies, trade with some Grendlers, and come meet your fellow E2 fans in the Land of Enchantment!
There's GREAT shopping and lots of yummy Mexican food to be had, too!

Earth2 got more press in last month's Starlog. Several letters to the editor were there showing the support for E2.
Speaking of Starlog, they now have an e-mail address of Starlog@aol.com They have done many articles on E2 so feel free to let them know how much you miss E2.
This There are only two more episodes of Earth2 that will air in Austrailia where E2 just happens to be a BIG HIT. (Perhaps Austrailian's are a bit better at choosing good television - or maybe NBC just screwed up the American E2 time slot)
E2 continues to get press. Two weeks ago there was a letter from an E2 fan got printed in Starweek Magazine (the television guide in The Toronto Star - 1 million readers). Nothing is better than free publicity of that kind!
The sky-ad flyby went well. It didn't get televised but it was reported by an E2 fan that the ad looked great and was clearly visible for all the Hollywood big-whigs that were stuck in the lines of traffic.
There was a new Earth2 web site listed on
Yahoo the other day and it is

As many know, Earth2 was nominated for three Emmy's and there will be a "fly-by" this year where a plane will pull an E2 sign around the sky for two(?) hours as all the Hollywood big-shots arrive in their limos. This will at least get local press and if you'd like to help it get national press, here is a group of addresses you can write to and you can also send e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
