Nauticon 2015: Now with 87% More Debauchery!

BFNCHey kids! It’s almost time for the Shameless’ favorite-est con of the season! If you enjoy good food, good times, and drinks a-plenty, then you are no doubt familiar with the weapons-grade awesome that is Nauticon!

If not, then please immediately rectify this massive oversight in your life! Nauticon is 48 hours of 21+ geek-friendly revelry, held on the beach in P-Town, Cape Cod. In addition to all the usual panels and dealers booths, there are parties, various food and alcohol tastings, and this year, we’ll be bringing the Shameless Games, a series of events designed to test your sanity, or at least your sobriety.

It’s still not too late to unleash your personal party Kraken. May 15th to May 17th 2015! See you there!

P.S. There’s even a con-related discount on tickets for the Ferry between Boston and P-Town!

I Like Pie PI!

 

Hey there Cadets!breaking-bad-star-trek-animated It’s PI Time!

8PI-Con Time, to be precise

The con that started it all for us, the place where we launched the good ship Shameless, has returned after a years hiatus. Join us in welcoming back this beloved CT/MA convention. This year’s Guest of Awesome is longtime Shameless Friend with Benefits Justine Graykin, with Guest of Honor Allen Steele. As you can imagine, we’ve missed this friendly, fun, and fancy-free convention. Sure to be a blast, so come on down and party with us June 27th – 29th!

(And yes, we strongly suspect there will be pie. But there’s only one way for you to actually find out!)

Parties Ahoy!

Though the year got off to a rocky start, we are undaunted. Indeed, we have a Spring season just jam packed with slack, and wholesome (hah!) party goodness!

Witness:

Nauticon 2014
May 2-4, 2014
Provincetown, MA

Do you like booze? Do you like the beach? Are you at least moderately inclined towards all things fannish? And are you particularly excited about what happens when all three things come together? Then good God, Nauticon is for you!

Back for it’s third year, Nauticon is going all out with a viking theme! The perfect accompaniment for our Saturday Night revelry and merrymaking.

The venue is gorgeous, not to mention that this is probably one of the most perfect times of the year to hit the Cape; fantastic weather and no craziness with the tourists yet.Come for the beach excitement, stay for the YTs!

 

And don’t forget!:

8PiCon
June 27-29, 2014
Enfield, CT
http://www.pi-con.org

Long time fans might remember a fateful day in 2007, when the intrepid crew of the UBS Shameless came together with con attendees, and christened our mighty ship during 2PiCon, an event that still lives on in legend as “The Painsphere Incident.” Neither hurricane force winds nor running out of rum has dulled our enthusiasm for this convention. PiCon will always have a special place in our history.

Returning triumphantly from their hiatus, 8Pi-Con will be June 27-29th, and the UBS Shameless will be there to party it up on Saturday Night! We are particularly thrilled that long-time Special Friend (with Benefits) Of The Ship, Justine Graykin, is this year’s Guest of Awesome.

Between Nauticon in May and Picon in June, the next couple of months are looking pretty damn spectacular. See you then!

Oh Yeah Baby…We Want You…

bfflier

You know a great place to find us? This Saturday, January 18th at Arisia!

-Liften “Noodles” Kherry, XO, who loves you, but doesn’t LOVE you love you…

Guess Who’s Back! Back Again!

Hey! Is it 2014? Then it must be time for Arisia!

picard

Yes, time for the intrepid crew of the UBS Shameless to return to one of our favorite cons, Arisia. Come with us and roll the dice…will it be A) A blowout, B) an epic blowout, or C) an incredibly epic blowout?

(Ahem…we won’t talk about certain years past…)

There’s only one way to find out! Come join us and our awesome allies from Nauticon as we host:



Nauticon! Presented by the UBS Shameless
Saturday, January 18th
Rooms 506/507, 10pm to 2am



Astute cadets will note that we are starting somewhat later this year…but we’re also finishing up later as well. Please help us spread the word!  As always, you can keep up with the latest events via this webpage, our Facebook group, or on Twitter (@UBS_Shameless). See you then! -LNKXO

It’s Nearly Upon Us

After a long period of behind the scenes silence as we make our preparations and final checks, it’s almost time for Nauticon 2013!

Just a reminder, this is going to be an even greater blowout than usual: Not only are we providing official parties on Friday AND Saturday, but our own Commodore Erikson will be there as a convention Guest of Awesome (http://nauticons.com/events/index.) The Commodore is the Barfleet founder, and will be there along with several members of the Fleet Command staff.

(You have no idea the lengths that the Padre has been going to, to secure ordnance for this event…it’s literally international.)

There’s still tickets to be had for the con, so be sure to grab yours before that changes! You can’t get into the party without a con badge!

They’re Going To Have To Invent New Ways To Describe Awesome Now…

So as many of you know, we had a tiny little shindig at Arisia, and it went okay.

CRAZY WICKED STUPID OKAY!!

Seriously, it was a personal best. Records were smashed. Those smashed pieces were then further violated (we’re not allowed to say how, in at least 32 states) and chucked out the window. We raised enough money that even after paying off our room bill and making our charitable donation to the ever-worthy Operation Hammond we still have a bit more money than we had right before our long string of bad luck began. Of course, we’ll need to start buying more cups, and other consumables, but the important part is NOW WE CAN AFFORD TO DO SO! Furthermore, there was so much awesome around that we now have to have command staff meeting tonight for the purpose of inventing whole new ways of properly containing it in the future.

A lot of people worked very hard to make it all come together, but we still couldn’t do it without the support of you, our fanbase, and our fabulous sponsors. Thanks for making it all worthwhile, and we’ll see you soon again!!

Party Alert! Party Alert!

We’re well underway getting the ship all set for the mission to Lensmen Patrol Headquarters, known to most sentient beings as Arisia. The crew has been working hard to stock the bar with a wide array of the finest ETOH in the fleet, and stocking the cargo bay full of high quality slack. All was going well until someone had the bright idea to rewire the big red “Engage” button that puts the ship into warp to the primary weapon firing controls. Needless to say, we wiped out an entire moon owned by the Vulcan Temperance Ministry. It was a complete utter accident (Yeah that’s right, an accident…yeeeah) and frankly we’re really very, very sorry. *snicker*

Come join us in little more than a week’s time at Arisia on Saturday Night in what we have been referring to as “Mystery Shadow Lounge 3000″. It’s going to be a blast and full of slack, entertainment and plenty of good cheer!

XO’s note: Dying to find out the location? Either track down a helpful Barfleet member, check out our Facebook page, or our Twitter feed.

Esprit De Corps (Not A Fancy Cocktail)

So the good Padre Xenu (I should just make that his official name: Good Padre Xenu) has come up with a kick-ass fleet banner.

Want to see this baby’s premier? Come and track us down at Arisia on Saturday Night in what I have been referring to as “Mystery Shadow Lounge 3000”. Hope to see you all there, regardless of what new shiny we have to show off…and there is indeed more shiny to show off.

LBARS Functionality: Restored

We got this thing working!

So I don’t know the entire story…most of it is being kept from me so I can’t be compelled to testify against anybody in case this goes to court (STAAAAR COURT!), but the good Padre Fedora managed to single-handedly storm his way onto a Nova class starship, pirate their copy of LCARS, escape with life and limb intact, and then kitbash it into a usable interface for our needs. So props for that!!
