A video of the fun at Starfest 2011

So members of the USS Ticonderoga and the Seventh Fleet had a ton of fun last weekend.  WE had the opportunity to join our friends at Starfest 2011 in Denver.  While we were there, Brian Wesley of the USS Kelly had taken a ton of video footage.  He has been putting it together ind different videos showing the fun that was had at the con.  Here is the first video that he has posted on YouTube.

 

What memories do you have of the convention?

 

Change in guests at Starfest

Greetings everyone.  Today Starland announced that Jonathan Frakes will not be able to make it this year for Starfest 2011.  In his place will be LeVar Burton, best known for his role of Lt. Commander Geordi LaForge on Star Trek: The Next Generation.

 

Also we have had so many people get new uniforms for this event that we are setting up a group photo on Saturday.  If you do not have a uniform for the event we may have some extras that you can borrow.  We also may have some additional spaces available if you find that you can go on April 15-17.  If you are interested, please contact Captain Erica Stark right away.

 

This is one of the big events that we are looking forward to since there is a lack of conventions in Utah.

Jonathan Frakes will be a guest at Starfest 2011

Starland is the company that puts together a convention called Starfest every April in Denver.  They have been running this convention for more than 30 years and it has gained quite a following.  A lot of USS Ticonderoga and Seventh Fleet members will make the annual trek to this convention because of the fun and great guests they have.

Today Starland announced that actor and director Jonathan “Commander Riker” Frakes will be a guest at Starfest 2011.  They have also tabbed Morena Baccarin (Anna the Supreme Leader from V and Inara Serra from Firefly), David Prowse (Darth Vader from Star Wars) and Mark Sheppard (Romo Lampkin from the new Battlestar Galactica, Badger from Firefly and Leucon in Star Trek: Voyager).  We should be hearing more guest announcements soon.

Don’t forget that the Seventh Fleet is trying to charter a bus for $90/person (this is a round trip and includes the driver gratuity).  If you are interested in this, please contact Captain Erica Stark for details.
