as I said in my reintroduction post, the reason I started posting again was to share some of the history of Echo Base with the current members.

Today I bring you back to 2004 and a one time show Called Empire Fanfest The convention was put on by friends of mine (I was involved in the planning from the beginning as well) and it turned out to be something really great as Mark Hamill himself came out of a convention retirement to hold a Question and Answer panel during the show. this gave the 501st and Rebel Legion an opportunity to induct him into both Legions.

This is the only video I was able to find of the show, and please let me know if it's not publicly viewable. (I'll have to replace the video with pictures then)

Echo Base XO (at the time) Katie Nixon had the honor of presenting Mr Hamill with his membership plaque as I was working Security for the panel (I'm the bald one Wink ) I did however have the honor of introducing Mr Hamill to Shannon McRandle Whom I hosted at the con on behalf of the Rebel Legion.

Echo Base Also Inducted Ms. McRandle the day before at the con. That was my honor to do on behalf of the base.
