Escapade 2017

Escapade 27 took place on March 10–12, 2017, near the Los Angeles, CA airport at the Embassy Suites LAX North. Since this was the three-to-the-third year of Escapade, some fans decided it should have a threesomes theme, and proposed several panels with threesomes or OT3s as the focus. Program book covers featured Kirk/Spock/McCoy in both original Trek and new movies trek, as well as other Trekkish trios.

In addition, the Escapade Con Committee added a new position: that of a Welcome Committee. Raine Wynd served in this role.

New Hotel

This was the first year at the Embassy Suites, and reactions were positive. Among the most-loved features of the new hotel were:

  • Free breakfast every day
  • Happy hour 5:30-7:30 with free booze
  • Robot waiter who delivered things to rooms
  • Open seating area with couches, tables with electrical outlets, and enough chairs for everyone


Panels were scheduled from 11 am to 6 pm on Friday, 9-6 Saturday, and 11-3 Sunday, although the only panel at 2 pm on Sunday was the Escapade Review panel. This year changed the standard Sunday brunch scheduling because the hotel offered a complimentary breakfast buffet every day, so Escapade attendees weren't separated in a banquet room but shared the atrium dining area with other hotel guests. Friday night had a dance party with snacks and party fanvids, and Saturday night had the vidshow.
