Want to discuss the latest about Star Trek or Star Wars (and their many incarnations)? Or Battlestar Galactica? Perhaps Doctor Who? Or The Orville? What about favorites from a while ago... Smallville? Alien Nation, Buck Rogers, Farscape, or others? Maybe you'd like to find out more information about 3D printing, it's uses and future. Or share costuming ideas and trends? Want to find out more about making fan films/indie productions?

If you're an aspiring writer, attend one of our panels conducted by some of our guest authors. Discuss methods of writing, anthologies, selling your ideas and (of course) what they have coming up!

Have an idea for a panel you'd like to put together? Let us know!

Lee's Place

Do you miss all the fun times at Vic's Fontaine's Place? Sure, it was just a holosuite, but there was always something going on. Now you can be part of it all. Sing and dance the night away at the Lee's Place karaoke at it's new location in the Cinnamon Tree Restaurant on Friday evening.

In memory of the late Lee Warren, this year "Vic's Place" has been renamed "Lee's Place."

Afternoon Tea

Join us from 3:30 to 5:00 p.m. on Friday for an assortment of black and herbal teas, scones, tea cookies and finger sandwiches, as well as some other surprises! Attendance is limited to the first 40 registrants, and will cost $25.00.

We thank everyone who has participated in this event over the past several years, however this will be the final year for the afternoon tea. There will be no at-the-door sales; you may register in advance either online or via the mail.

TARDIS Photo Booth

The TARDIS Photo Booth will let you make all of Time and Space your backyard and come back with the photos to prove it. (NOTE: When visiting ancient Pompeii, be sure to set your alarm early on Volcano Day. Do not step on the butterfly.)


The Ten Forward party takes its name from the Ten-Forward area on the Enterprise D. It's our Saturday evening party, with music and dancing. It takes place in the Hunt Ballroom immediately after Masquerade ends. (Generally sometime between 11:00 and 11:30, depending on the number of masquerade entries.) Join us as we dance the night away.
