For fans celebrating the 50th Anniversary of Doctor Who, the 20th Anniversary of the Power Rangers, and all things Pop Culture, Houston, Texas is the destination of choice for the summer “Geek Festival”.
Space City Con 2013 includes hundreds of events, 24 hour programming for 3 days, exapnded to two adjoining hotels, with vendors, artists, authors, media guests, gaming & video-gaming, cosplay, a Masquerade competition, a Klingon Makeover for Charity, the Robotech 2013 Convention Tour, and everything for kids of all ages to enjoy.
Sylvester McCoy, beloved for his role as The 7th Doctor, and also for his quirky Radagast the Brown wizard in the international blockbuster, Peter Jackson's “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey”, will be joining a gathering of 5 Power Rangers (Jason David Frank, Steve Cardenas, Catherine Sutherland, Blake Foster, and Karan Ashley, a native Texan like JDF).
Also featured at the show is the new unsolicited pilot project, Star Trek: Renegades, with actors Walter Koenig (Chekov), Tim Russ (Tuvok / Director), Manu Intiraymi (Icheb), J.G. Hertzler (Martok), and the stunning Adrienne Wilkinson (Xena's daughter Eve; Star Wars' Maris Brood) as the newest Starfleet Captain, Lexxa Singh.
Star Trek: Voyager's Robert Picardo will serve as Master of Ceremonies, giving Houston the distinct and unique honor of hosting “Two Doctors” - two actors whose characters were simply and grandly, “The Doctor”.
Rounding out the line-up from Star Trek and Stargate, is John de Lancie (Q from Star Trek: The Next Generation) and Stargate: Atlantis commander Torri Higginson. This being Babylon 5's 20th Anniversary as well, Jason Carter will appear with Koenig.
Professional photo ops will be available with restored pieces of the Enterprise-D bridge NewStarship.com project, which is traveling to Houston along with the actual working TARDIS console, complete with sounds and lights, from the 1996 Doctor Who movie which starred Sylvester McCoy. This will be an extremely rare opportunity for fans to have special photos taken with the talent and the set pieces.
+ Space City Con takes place on August 2nd-4th 2013 in Houston; Texas.
