Can You Say “Metrotham Con”?


Metrotham Con was a fan-run, multi-fandom convention in Chattanooga, TN. What a cool name for a con, combining “Metropolis” and “Gotham”! In honoring their theme for 2021, “Oh The Horror”, they had guest actors from movies like Friday the 13th and A Nightmare on Elm Street. It was a small con, but there were plenty of things going on. Besides the usual vendors’ room, gaming room, and costume contest, there were special “After Dark” panels, karaoke, an adult vendor hall, and a dating game, plus much, much more. There were numerous panels all day long for all three days, plus celebs signing autographs and doing photo ops, and cosplayers roaming the halls. We were happy to be delivering two panels: “StarPodTrek Presents Star Trek on Paramount Plus” and “StarPodLog Presents Starlog- The Worlds Greatest Sci-Fi & Fantasy Magazine”. We were grateful for the friendly staff that helped us get set up with a projector and screen for our panels. One small disappointment was that we somehow missed Star Trek guest, Lisa Wilcox, who played Yuta on the TNG episode “The Vengeance Factor” (and was also in A Nightmare on Elm Street 4). After the con, we visited the River Valley Sculpture Garden in Chattanooga. We loved the exquisite metal sculptures and landscaping.
