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.
