We’re in a convention mood these days so tonight we’re going to fill you in on another great fan run con this time located in Lake Charles, Louisiana. We know it’s early, but we’re trying to stay on top of events this year and give you lots of advanced notice. You have plenty of time to prepare, considering it’s from June 30 – July 1, 2012.CONTINUE READING >>
Hang on to your hats and glasses cuz Patrick Stewart is coming to Dallas! That’s right kiddies, Sir Patrick Stewart is scheduled to appear at the Dallas, TX Comic Con on May 19-20, 2012. And seriously, if you’re anywhere near Texas, stop on by, where else can you see Patrick Stewart for fifteen bucks? If you aren’t familiar with it, Dallas ComicCon is another of the spectacular fan run conventions out there that give the attendees (i.e. you guys) a more up close and personal time with the celebrities. The venue is smaller, the seating is closer, and the photo op lines aren’t nearly as long as others. All of this adds up to a ton of fun for all the fans.CONTINUE READING >>

You say you haven’t heard of Starbase Indy yet? You should have! We attended last year’s convention and supplied live coverage to all of our readers. Oh, you weren’t reading our site yet last November? ...ok I guess you get a pass on that one, but you don’t have an excuse to be in the dark any longer.
Starbase Indy is an awesome fan run convention that is held every year around Thanksgiving. They get fabulous guests and put on one of the most interactive events we’ve seen. If you’ve yet to attend, their convention isn’t a 9 to 5 deal where you go home early. It’s what I like to call a fully immersive experience. They provide workshops, vendor access, fun events, and of course plenty of celebrity goodness practically around the clock, for kids as well as “grups.”CONTINUE READING >>
This completely slipped under our radar and if we'd known about it, we would be live blogging from there this weekend. For those of you in the Orlando, FL. area, head down to the Hilton Orlando Resort Lake Buena Vista to get your Trek on. Vulcan Events is hosting it's Away Mission: Orlando with a slew of Trek stars from the captain of the Enterprise to two famous Ferengi brothers and many others in-between. Sir Patrick Stewart will be on hand with David Warner, Armin Shimuerman, Max Grodenchick, Larry Nemecek, Rick Sternbach, Lolita Fatjo, Phil Morris, Jennifer Hetrick, & Grace Lee Whitney. For the Stargate / Firefly fans, Jewel Staite & David Nykl. The show starts tomorrow (October 28th) at 5pm and runs through Sunday.CONTINUE READING >>
Dallas Comic Con is at it again. Their newest convention is coming up on October 8th & 9th. This particular "Fan Days" convention, is Star Wars themed, but we thought Trek fans would want to know because George Takei will be appearing over the weekend. If you haven't been to any of the conventions Dallas Comic Con puts on, you're really missing out. They run a great show. They are big enough and well known enough to get a ton of the great guests, but small enough to allow fans greater access to those guests. If you are anywhere near Dallas, TX on October 8th & 9th we totally think you should stop by and check it out. It's shaping up to be a great show.CONTINUE READING >>
Star Trek Alumni Shatner, Nichols, Sirtis, Phillips, & McDowell Round Out Fan Expo Canada. This Weekend
Calling all Trek fans in the Great White North! This weekend is shaping up to be a stellar one for Canadian Star Trek & Scifi fans alike. William Shatner (Sir Billiam, as we now call him), Nichelle Nichols, Marina Sirtis, Ethan Phillips, & Malcolm McDowell are all set to attend Canada's largest science fiction convention, Fan Expo Canada.
Now entering its 17th year, Fan Expo Canada showcases over 700 exhibits and sprawls to over 400,000 square feet and over 75,000 fans. On top of the listed Trek alumni, everything from Star Wars to Battlestar Galactica & I Dream of Genie to The Six Million Dollar Man will be represented. Oh, and did we mention that Freddy Kruger will be there as well. That's right, one of our favs, Robert England is set to appear. We say Freddy Kruger, but really Robert will always be Willy from V, to us. We still have a special place in our eight-chambered hearts for the original V & V:The Final Battle. But the series?... Not so much.
Anyway, check out the full guest list & convention details below.CONTINUE READING >>
