The con's charity was St. Jude Research Hospital.

At the one in 1991 (Cape Girardeau, Missouri): "Richard Arnold was quoted in the local paper (the Southeast Missourian) as saying that Star Trek conventions '...tend to draw what most people would call society's misfits, the nerds, the just-too-bright-for-their-own good' types.' He also characterized fans as people who are '...happiest at a convention because, for a few days, they're normal, not outcasts.' Needless to say, this did not go do down well with many of the convention attendees..." [1]
