CosPlay R&R Room Open
Hosted by The Royal Manticoran Navy, this is a room where cosplayers can go to get away from the convention or have their costumes repaired. Here are the rules for the room: Hours of operation will be Friday 12 pm to 6 pm, Saturday 9 am to 6 pm and Sunday 9 am to 1 pm.
Rest and Repair Take the time to take a break. It’s hard to be “on” continuously. Your costume and props can wear you down a lot faster than you expect.
Emergency Costume Supplies Cosplayers are welcome to use the CR&R room and its supplies for emergency repairs. We have experienced costumers available if you need additional help.
Lounge Area Time Limit Please remember the lounge area is for rest and repair. You are welcome to take as long as you need to get yourself ready to entertain your fans again. Please be courteous and allow others to make use of the room and its facilities as well.
No Unattended Children The CR&R room is a place for cosplayers to rest. It is not a day care center. For the safety of your children, please do not leave them unattended. Unattended children will be turned over to convention security.
No Photo Zone No worries about taking off your helmet, wig, or prosthetics and grabbing a bite to eat. The Cosplay Rest and Repair Room is a safe place where you can be out of character without disappointing your fans.

If rumors are true, the stolen booty she carries is more than enough to share for an enterprising band of freebooters that know their way around the isles in the smaller, shallow hulled scows that can maneuver much easier through the dangerous waters. Only the most daring would try against such a dangerous Captain and her crew. Pregens available for this 5th level adventure.

Postcards From The Underworld
Why has paranormal phenomena fascinated and frightened us for so many centuries? From reality shows to horror movies and haunted houses, belief in the existence of a spirit world is something shared by civilizations throughout the ages. We have all heard ghost stories and urban legends that either gave us pause or caused us to sleep with the lights on. This intriguing field has been studied extensively for over 13 years by Christopher Allen Brewer and James Manda of FUTURE GHOST. From a startling collection of spirit photography and audio recordings from several well-known haunts, Christopher and James' work has been featured on the Biography Channel, SYFY, Destination America, Lifetime Movie Network, The Travel Channel and Fuji TV. Interviewed by the Denver Post and filmed by 2-time Pulitzer prize winner Craig Walker, Christopher was exposed to the concept of a spirit world early as an Oglala Sioux. He met James in 2004, who was living down the street from an area where a 737 crashed, a spot known to locals for its haunted history. This panel will showcase the most supernaturally stimulating findings from all of their years as ghost hunters in paranormal hotspots in and around Colorado. For budding paranormal investigators to anyone who simply likes a good shiver down their spine, join FUTURE GHOST for a spooky, fun panel on all things that go bump in the night!  www.thespiritchasers.com

The H.P. Lovecraft Historical Society is proud to present its widely acclaimed and award-winning silent film of The Call of Cthulhu. A dying professor leaves his great-nephew a collection of documents pertaining to the Cthulhu Cult. Crossing decades and continents, the man begins piecing together the dread implications of the professor's inquiries. Written in 1926, the famed story is brought richly to life in the style of a classic 1920s silent movie, with a haunting original symphonic score. Using the Mythoscope™ process — a mix of modern and vintage techniques — the HPLHS has worked to create the most authentic and faithful screen adaptation of a Lovecraft story ever attempted.

After playing at numerous film festivals across the world, this extraordinary motion picture is available on DVD, featuring a making-of documentary, high-fidelity and Mythophonic audio, special features, and intertitles in twenty-four languages.

Someone has stolen the crown jewels and everyone is looking side-eye at a rogue clan within the four-armed warrior race of Kead who dominate the mountains. Any move by Plar or the Kead to retrieve the jewels will be seen as an act of war. Here’s where you come in: retrieve the jewels and you can keep any of the mounds of loot you find in the treasure cave the clan is holed up in; however, you may have to deal with that whole ‘horrible, agonizing death’ thing.

Ben Browder Autographs
It’s cool to see your favorite actors on stage during the Q&A sessions, but to meet them face to face and get personally signed items from them takes your convention experience to a whole other level.

While some guests may be contractually prohibited from signing unlicensed photos, for the most part, what you have signed is up to you. Please keep your items within the bounds of good taste. You can bring something from home, get a photo or some other item from the Dealer’s Room, get your program book signed, or, in many cases, you can even purchase a special photo from the guest at the autograph table.

Photo, Autograph and Selfie tickets can be purchased at the Atrium entrance.

Autograph start times will be posted at the autograph tables during the convention. Once an actor has finished signing for those in line, they will usually leave until the next scheduled autograph time. If they have to leave for some necessity, they will post a return time at their table. Please be patient and remember that we all need a little break once in a while.

You are entitled to one autograph per autograph ticket, but there is no limit to the number of tickets you can purchase. Each guest is scheduled to sign for a limited amount of time. Guest autograph tickets are fully refundable prior to their last scheduled autograph session of the show. Guests have two autograph lines – one for Platinum Members and the other for everyone else. The lines alternate to keep things moving.

Tickets for the autograph sessions can be purchased at the StarFest tables at the entrance to the Atrium.

Peter Macon Autographs
It’s cool to see your favorite actors on stage during the Q&A sessions, but to meet them face to face and get personally signed items from them takes your convention experience to a whole other level.

While some guests may be contractually prohibited from signing unlicensed photos, for the most part, what you have signed is up to you. Please keep your items within the bounds of good taste. You can bring something from home, get a photo or some other item from the Dealer’s Room, get your program book signed, or, in many cases, you can even purchase a special photo from the guest at the autograph table.

Photo, Autograph and Selfie tickets can be purchased at the Atrium entrance.

Autograph start times will be posted at the autograph tables during the convention. Once an actor has finished signing for those in line, they will usually leave until the next scheduled autograph time. If they have to leave for some necessity, they will post a return time at their table. Please be patient and remember that we all need a little break once in a while.

You are entitled to one autograph per autograph ticket, but there is no limit to the number of tickets you can purchase. Each guest is scheduled to sign for a limited amount of time. Guest autograph tickets are fully refundable prior to their last scheduled autograph session of the show. Guests have two autograph lines – one for Platinum Members and the other for everyone else. The lines alternate to keep things moving.

Tickets for the autograph sessions can be purchased at the StarFest tables at the entrance to the Atrium.

Finding & Exploring Strange New Worlds: NASA's Exoplanet Enterprise - A Voyage of Discovery
We are in the midst of a golden age in the discovery and characterization of exoplanets. Dr. Carpenter will talk about the incredible successes we have had in finding planets, using the transit method, with NASA’s Kepler/K2 and Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS) and our plans for using the microlensing technique on WFIRST when it launches in the mid-2020’s.

Once exoplanets are found using these survey missions, we need to follow-up with observations from other observatories on the ground and in-space, to get additional data to characterize their properties. The Hubble Space Telescope (HST) has been used to confirm candidate exoplanets, find some on its own, and perhaps most importantly, obtain some of the first detections of specific elements in the atmospheres of select exoplanets. HST was the first to make direct measurements of sodium and helium in an exoplanet atmosphere, has seen an evaporating hydrogen-atmosphere, detected oxygen and carbon in an atmosphere, and made critical observations of the Trappist-1 planets that indicate at least 3 of its 6 planets have compact atmospheres like Earth, Venus, and Mars in our own solar system. The James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) will be able to observe fainter and more distant solar systems in a broader range of infrared colors and greatly increase the number of planets studied in this fashion. Dr. Carpenter will summarize what has been done with HST to-date and plans for future observations with JWST.

The History of Astronomical Art: From the Renaissance to the Space Age
We humans have always been explorers. Our species was born from our deep-rooted need to
learn more about the world around us – from the need to find that next source of food to, even if
just occasionally, discover out of pure curiosity what is over that hill or to figure out why that
stick over there looks a bit weird. We are also artists, almost innately compelled to express our
experiences and feelings and inner imaginings, be it through the sung word or the pigmented
picture. Art and exploration have been long and intimate partners, each inspiring the other
through history as we expanded the frontiers of new lands and pressed the boundaries of
human activity with novel technologies.

Contemporary visions of aeronautical advances and space exploration portrayed in sweeping
murals by Robert McCall stir the human spirit just as much as scenes of majestic beauty
captured in paintings of the 19th century American frontier by artists like Thomas Cole, Albert
Bierstadt, and Frederick Edwin Church. From its beginnings before the era of telescopic
astronomy to its inspirational and influential role during the dawn of the space age, space art
allows us to see the unseeable and to go to places we cannot yet go or to places (or times) we
could never go. It may be centuries before our technology allows some lucky and courageous
humans to stand rapt admiring the epic landscape of an Earth-like moon around a gas giant
planet orbiting a distant star light-years away, but astronomical artists can take us there today.

Cowboys vs. Aliens
Play with the designer! The idea of alien forces invading planet Earth is fairly common in TV and movies, but usually it takes place in a contemporary context. But, what of the alien incursion happened back in the mid to late 1800s? This game was made to create that experience. You’ll call the shots for a band of western heroes, facing a series of unwelcome visitors from outer-space. You’ll have resources and weapons appropriate for the period. Each cowboy has one or more attributes and abilities expressed on his/her card. Each resource card has one or more attacks and/or effects. Successful attacks do damage, apply conditions and/or force the alien to retreat. Accumulate enough damage and/or effects, and the alien is defeated! Defeat three alien threats in succession, and you’ll be considered an epic success, written about in the history books venerated by future generations.

Star Trek and NASA: Fifty Years of Inventing the Future Together
Even before NASA and Star Trek existed, filmmakers looked to the aeronautical industry, organizations involved in rocket experiments, and astronomers to aid them in depicting flights to other worlds. The Buck Rogers and Flash Gordon serials treated audiences to journeys in rocketships to meet up with those “new civilizations” we’re so familiar with today, with both good and bad results. Movies such as Frau im Mond and Things to Come primed us for more adventures beyond the Earth with productions like Captain Video, Tom Corbett, Destination Moon, Forbidden Planet and countless others. Art departments (with wildly varying budgets) designed sets and props and spaceship models. The practice continued with Star Trek, which first aired over fifty years ago, and barely eight years after NASA itself was formed. This presentation will examine many of the concepts developed for Star Trek, both human and alien, with particular emphasis on their scientific and technological plausibility, even in the 24th century. Developments in real launch vehicles, space stations and distant planetary spacecraft have all inspired the look of their future versions. Research into new materials and processes, medicines, sensors, computers and energy systems have likewise driven the look of future handheld equipment. While the real world has been quickly catching up to what we have designed in the Star Trek universe, we continue to learn and ask questions. And imagine.

Ben Browder Autographs
It’s cool to see your favorite actors on stage during the Q&A sessions, but to meet them face to face and get personally signed items from them takes your convention experience to a whole other level.

While some guests may be contractually prohibited from signing unlicensed photos, for the most part, what you have signed is up to you. Please keep your items within the bounds of good taste. You can bring something from home, get a photo or some other item from the Dealer’s Room, get your program book signed, or, in many cases, you can even purchase a special photo from the guest at the autograph table.

Photo, Autograph and Selfie tickets can be purchased at the Atrium entrance.

Autograph start times will be posted at the autograph tables during the convention. Once an actor has finished signing for those in line, they will usually leave until the next scheduled autograph time. If they have to leave for some necessity, they will post a return time at their table. Please be patient and remember that we all need a little break once in a while.

You are entitled to one autograph per autograph ticket, but there is no limit to the number of tickets you can purchase. Each guest is scheduled to sign for a limited amount of time. Guest autograph tickets are fully refundable prior to their last scheduled autograph session of the show. Guests have two autograph lines – one for Platinum Members and the other for everyone else. The lines alternate to keep things moving.

Tickets for the autograph sessions can be purchased at the StarFest tables at the entrance to the Atrium.

Play with the designer! The premise of this game is, "what if somebody decided to run a professional dodgeball organization along the lines of professional wrestling? That is, a collection of eight to twelve dodge ball squads, traveling from city to city, with the world championship title on the line every night. And what if the same wild, soap opera-like story lines were carried on from city to city, just like pro wrestling? Good guys vs. bad guys, a conniving commissioner, unexpected help from off-court, plot twists before and after every match--oh, yeah! Wouldn't that be FUN?

Dungeons and Dragons 5E
Pirates Cove, 4-6 players. Captain Redmane Moraan brought her ship, the Sea Star, in heavy to the Craven Isles, the notorious haven of many pirates, known for its treacherous reefs. Only an experienced seafarer familiar with these waters would dare bring in such a deep hull past the cutting rocks beneath the surface. If rumors are true, the stolen booty she carries is more than enough to share for an enterprising band of freebooters that know their way around the isles in the smaller, shallow hulled scows that can maneuver much easier through the dangerous waters. Only the most daring would try against such a dangerous Captain and her crew. Pregens available for this 5th level adventure. Come play on an original table with one of the most popular pieces created for D&D!

50th Anniversary of Apollo 11: Man's 1st Moon Landing
This panel will discuss mankind's greatest achievement in the history of mankind and that is Apollo 11's moon landing on July 20, 1969. This was the first time that two men had actually landed and walked around doing scientific experiments on another celestial body other than the earth. This July 20 marks the 50th anniversary of this historic event - 600 million people watched it on TV all over the world and crime was nearly non-existence. The panel will cover how significant Apollo 11 was to us scientifically, socially and culturally. It will also cover the mission and its astronauts (one of the Apollo 11 astronauts the panelist met himself) its spacecraft, scientific instruments and experiments, behind the scenes and insights and when  they nearly aborted the landing.

The panelist - a NASA Apollo mission expert - has met 28 astronauts of whom ten were on Apollo missions. He has been a member of the National Space Society for 17 years and spoken on man in space and space exploration topics and events 15 times. Where were you 50 years ago this July 20 when Neil Armstrong said "That's one small step for man and one giant leap for mankind"? Come and celebrate mankind's greatest achievement ever.

Folklore professor Albert Wilmarth investigates legends of strange creatures in the most remote hills of Vermont. His inquiry reveals a terrifying glimpse of the truth that lurks behind the legends. H.P. Lovecraft's classic tale of suspense and alien horrors is brought to life in the style of the classic horror films of the 1930s like Dracula, Frankenstein and King Kong. Using the Mythoscope™ process — a mix of modern and vintage techniques — the HPLHS filmed on location in New England to create the most authentic and faithful screen adaptation of a Lovecraft story yet attempted.

This award-winning motion picture has screened at festivals worldwide. You can now screen it from the comfort of your own home, as it's available on DVD and on BluRay disc.

The Big Debate - Post Scarcity Societies
A short discussion about debate and civil discourse and some unique analysis on the importance of discourse within fan-doms.

After this discussion an intercollegiate debate on a pertinent topic but will be interesting enough to attract a crowd and provide for deep passionate debate giving debaters freedom to link in several philosophical frameworks to the fandom.

The debate will be: This house believes that governments in a post-scarcity society should not redistribute wealth.

We will finish off the panel with a Q&A and will include a team of seasoned debate professionals who can answer high school students questions about which colleges have debate teams or how to start a debate team at their school. We can also answer college students’ questions about how to start a team and for everyone else, invite them for future debates at conventions.

No Unattended Children The CR&R room is a place for cosplayers to rest. It is not a day care center. For the safety of your children, please do not leave them unattended. Unattended children will be turned over to convention security.
No Photo Zone No worries about taking off your helmet, wig, or prosthetics and grabbing a bite to eat. The Cosplay Rest and Repair Room is a safe place where you can be out of character without disappointing your fans.

INSIGHT Mission Update
It's Mars Mania time at ScienceFest! 2018 was an exciting year for Mars Exploration. In May,
the latest NASA Mars mission, INSIGHT (Interior Exploration using Seismic Investigations,
Geodesy and Heat Transport), lifted off from Vandenburg, California. Seven months later it
arrived at Mars, survived a 12,000 MPH descent thru the atmosphere, and landed safely in the
Elysium Planitia region just north of the equator. This spacecraft was designed, built and tested
right here in Colorado at Lockheed Martin Space Systems. Pieter Kallemeyn, leader of the
Lockheed Martin team that performs mission support for this spacecraft, will give a presentation
on what it takes to build, launch and land such a complex spacecraft, and the latest pictures and
science discoveries from the surface of Mars. In addition, Pieter will give an update on the other
rovers and orbiters exploring Mars, the hazards of the dust storm that encompassed the planet
for most of last year, and a preview of the next Mars missions scheduled for 2020 and beyond.

Pirates Cove, 4-6 players. Captain Redmane Moraan brought her ship, the Sea Star, in heavy to the Craven Isles, the notorious haven of many pirates, known for its treacherous reefs. Only an experienced seafarer familiar with these waters would dare bring in such a deep hull past the cutting rocks beneath the surface. If rumors are true, the stolen booty she carries is more than enough to share for an enterprising band of freebooters that know their way around the isles in the smaller, shallow hulled scows that can maneuver much easier through the dangerous waters. Only the most daring would try against such a dangerous Captain and her crew. Pregens available for this 5th level adventure.

Peter Macon Autographs
It’s cool to see your favorite actors on stage during the Q&A sessions, but to meet them face to face and get personally signed items from them takes your convention experience to a whole other level.

While some guests may be contractually prohibited from signing unlicensed photos, for the most part, what you have signed is up to you. Please keep your items within the bounds of good taste. You can bring something from home, get a photo or some other item from the Dealer’s Room, get your program book signed, or, in many cases, you can even purchase a special photo from the guest at the autograph table.

Photo, Autograph and Selfie tickets can be purchased at the Atrium entrance.

Autograph start times will be posted at the autograph tables during the convention. Once an actor has finished signing for those in line, they will usually leave until the next scheduled autograph time. If they have to leave for some necessity, they will post a return time at their table. Please be patient and remember that we all need a little break once in a while.

You are entitled to one autograph per autograph ticket, but there is no limit to the number of tickets you can purchase. Each guest is scheduled to sign for a limited amount of time. Guest autograph tickets are fully refundable prior to their last scheduled autograph session of the show. Guests have two autograph lines – one for Platinum Members and the other for everyone else. The lines alternate to keep things moving.

Tickets for the autograph sessions can be purchased at the StarFest tables at the entrance to the Atrium.

Exploration on the Edge of our Solar System
Come hear about the latest exploration of the outer solar system from a scientist who was on
the team!

NASA’s New Horizons spacecraft celebrated New Years Eve 2018 in a very unique way – by
encountering the most distant world ever explored! This world, nicknamed Ultima Thule, is
located 4.1 billion miles from the Earth in a region of our solar system known as the Kuiper Belt.
Ultima Thule is so far from the Sun it’s unlikely to have been modified by it, and is thus remains
unchanged since its formation 4.6 billion years ago. By exploring this small distant world we
hope to learn how it formed, and by extension how the building blocks of all planets are formed,
as well as what conditions were like in this distant part of the solar system as it condensed from
the solar nebula.

Meteorites, Movies and Mysteries: The Truth Behind These Enigmatic Rocks from Space
Movies are wonderful places for us to suspend our disbelief and dream of other worlds and possibilities. However, if we believed everything we saw in movies, we would think meteorites are explosive, radioactive, ooze alien life, or even give us super powers. Of course, Superman might beg to differ. Yet the science revealed by meteorites is almost as exciting as the fiction. Like a modern Indiana Jones, meteorite scientists travel all over the world from deserts of Northwest Africa to the frozen plains of Antarctica collecting samples. These little rocks from space tell us about our origins, and possibly what lies ahead. Join me as we discuss the fantasy and reality of meteorite science through science fiction and cutting edge research as we address some of the myths and look at the exciting realities behind these fascinating space rocks.

Tower of Madness is a push-your-luck dice game of Lovecraft-inspired horror. Fail your investigation dice rolls and you will be forced to draw a tentacle from the tower. Any marbles that fall as a result affect your character immediately, whether adding to your discovery total, gaining you spells or gaining madness; drop one of the three DOOM marbles, however, and you summon Cthulhu and end the game.

BEARS! (https://www.boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/99081/bears)
1 hour 2-8 players

Bears! is a fast-playing, competitive game in which you score points by pairing dice. Shoot bears and run from tents for a few points, or take a risk and score big by sleeping through the attack! But watch out! If any bears remain at the end of the round, your sleeping campers are done for!

Here Kitty Kitty (https://www.boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/187289/here-kitty-kitty)
1 hour 3-6 players

In the crazy cat-collecting game Here, Kitty, Kitty!, your neighborhood has a cat problem, the problem being that the cats don't all belong to YOU! Unfortunately you can't just grab them for yourself as everyone in the neighborhood wants to claim those adorable kitties. Outwit your fellow feline fiends as you lure cats onto your property, move cats into your house, and steal cats from your neighbors. All's fair in love and cat-collecting!

Whistle Stop (https://www.boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/221318/whistle-stop)
3 hours 2-5 players

In Whistle Stop, you make your way west across the country, using your fledgling railroad company to build routes, pick up valuable cargo, and deliver needed goods to growing towns, creating a network of whistle stops that you and your competitors can leverage as you continue to expand your networks.

New York Slice (https://www.boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/208895/new-york-slice)
1 hour 2-6 players

In New York Slice, each player slices pizzas into portions, giving their opponents first choice, while they take the leftovers. There are a dozen kinds of pizza to work with, from veggie to hawaiian to meat lover's, and each player decides if they want to eat or keep some of the slices, building the best collection of pizzas possible!

NIchelle Nichols Autographs
It’s cool to see your favorite actors on stage during the Q&A sessions, but to meet them face to face and get personally signed items from them takes your convention experience to a whole other level.

While some guests may be contractually prohibited from signing unlicensed photos, for the most part, what you have signed is up to you. Please keep your items within the bounds of good taste. You can bring something from home, get a photo or some other item from the Dealer’s Room, get your program book signed, or, in many cases, you can even purchase a special photo from the guest at the autograph table.

Photo, Autograph and Selfie tickets can be purchased at the Atrium entrance.

Autograph start times will be posted at the autograph tables during the convention. Once an actor has finished signing for those in line, they will usually leave until the next scheduled autograph time. If they have to leave for some necessity, they will post a return time at their table. Please be patient and remember that we all need a little break once in a while.

You are entitled to one autograph per autograph ticket, but there is no limit to the number of tickets you can purchase. Each guest is scheduled to sign for a limited amount of time. Guest autograph tickets are fully refundable prior to their last scheduled autograph session of the show. Guests have two autograph lines – one for Platinum Members and the other for everyone else. The lines alternate to keep things moving.

Plan of Action is an experimental panel game show, where players or teams will be run through an unknown survival scenario with a sci-fi/fantasy theme. They will select their tools and skills, respond to emergent threats, and see if their strategy and foresight results in victory and survival... or not. One to four teams of one to four people will be selected from the audience, but the whole audience will have the opportunity to help their chances. When things hit the fan and the world is at stake: survival is not guaranteed, anything could happen, and the only thing between you and the abyss... is your Plan of Action.

Hubble 2020 - Steering HST into the Next Decade
SPECIAL:  Black Hole Update
Carolyn Collins Petersen and Ken Carpenter
Black holes play big roles in science fiction, and astronomers know they really do exist in real life.  Not only do we see evidence of them in Hubble images, but most recently, a virtual telescope the size of planet Earth observed a massive one in the heart of a distant galaxy. The image of that black hole is the first-ever direct view of the event horizon around a black hole. Come find out the latest news about this image, what it tells us about black holes, and the Event Horizon Telescope that gathered the data!

When the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) was launched in April 1990, it had a design lifetime of 15 years. Thanks to both good design and construction (let’s not talk about that pesky mirror – after all, we fixed that!) and to a series of 5 post-deployment servicing missions, the operational lifetime has been extended from 15 to 20 to 25 years and beyond. We now expect HST to last well into the 2020’s and provide complementary ultraviolet and optical observations to the primarily infrared observations of at least the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) after its launch in 2021, and possibly of the Wide-Field Infrared Survey Telescope (WFIRST), which is scheduled for launch in the mid-2020’s. Dr. Carpenter will discuss the current health and scientific capabilities of HST and how the HST Project is managing it, via “life-extension initiatives”, special observing programs/strategies, and other means, to ensure viability well into the 2020’s, without excessively limiting current science productivity – a trade that is complex and difficult – though not impossible for true “rocket scientists”!

Once an actor has finished signing for those in line, they will usually leave until the next scheduled autograph time. If they have to leave for some necessity, they will post a return time at their table. Please be patient and remember that we all need a little break once in a while.

You are entitled to one autograph per autograph ticket, but there is no limit to the number of tickets you can purchase. Each guest is scheduled to sign for a limited amount of time. Guest autograph tickets are fully refundable prior to their last scheduled autograph session of the show. Guests have two autograph lines – one for Platinum Members and the other for everyone else. The lines alternate to keep things moving.

William Shatner Photo Session
We encourage you to get to the photo sessions early. If you arrive after the start time for a photo session, you are not guaranteed a photo. Once all the photos have been taken for people in line, the actor will be leaving. Photo times are posted at the photo booth. Please note: Your photo with the stars ticket entitles one person to one photo. Everyone in a photo session must have a ticket except babies that can’t walk and only if carried in your arms. You will receive a print for every ticket purchased.

Fowler in a live recording of their Geeky Gab Podcast. Let your thoughts about the highs and lows of the Pokemon franchise be heard as we ask the audience questions. Do the games have anywhere to go after the repetitive nature of each game? Or will we see something revolutionary? Is there room for a new animated series? Will Pokemon-Detective Pikachu be the successful start of a new franchise or should it be a standalone? Let's find out together at our live podcast recording.

William Shatner Autographs
It’s cool to see your favorite actors on stage during the Q&A sessions, but to meet them face to face and get personally signed items from them takes your convention experience to a whole other level.

While some guests may be contractually prohibited from signing unlicensed photos, for the most part, what you have signed is up to you. Please keep your items within the bounds of good taste. You can bring something from home, get a photo or some other item from the Dealer’s Room, get your program book signed, or, in many cases, you can even purchase a special photo from the guest at the autograph table.

Photo Session and Autograph tickets can be purchased at the Atrium entrance.

Autograph start times will be posted at the autograph tables during the convention. Once an actor has finished signing for those in line, they will usually leave until the next scheduled autograph time. If they have to leave for some necessity, they will post a return time at their table. Please be patient and remember that we all need a little break once in a while.
