I had lunch with a few people recently in which the conversation started and ended with a mention of “The Plan.” Non-Battlestar Galactica associates quickly booed and told us to leave the table if we were going to talk about it, and, not wanting that, we had to cease (but really, if you’re going to have a whole movie about the Cylons, why oh why would you leave Lucy Lawless out?). In contrast, I have an inkling that a fair number of you are unabashaed BSG fans and that an ever fairer number of you were/are fans of Farscape and Stargate SG-1. I bet some of you even loudly registered your protest to Sci-Fi brass after the network abruptly, and meanly, cancelled Farscape before its 5-year contract was up. Lucky for you, there are fan conventions in town for both Farscape and Stargate SG-1. Starting tomorrow and running through the weekend, Creation Entertainment is hosting the annual event at the LAX Marriot. Stars will be in tow to commiserate and commemorate, and, of course, people will be dressed up to the gills. Best part: On Friday, Gary Jones (Stargate‘s Chief Master Sergeant Walter Harriman) and Dean Haglund (you know, Langley) will participate in a celebrity cabaret called Starhole. Yes, that’s right, Starhole.
Ticket prices vary depending on what days you go, and what a la carte items (i.e., autograph sessions) you want to add to your cart. For more information on prices for the Stargate convention, see here; for Farscape, see here.
