Star Trek: Equinox

Fifteen years after the destruction of the USS Equinox (approximate star date 2393) Captain Rudy Ransom, who was beamed from his doomed ship by the Krotownans, is held prisoner in the Delta quadrant for crimes against the race including trespassing in Krowtownan space and the deaths of Krowtown Crew members. Captain Ransom has very few choices but one chance to return to the Alpha Quadrant some 30.000 light years away.

Thank You to Jillian Anderson – SOCO CW Star

Jillian will be shooting GalaxyFest promos for CW which will be airing the two weeks prior to GF5.

She’s also scheduled to stop by and visit us. More details to come.

 “Before pursuing her goal to become an on-air TV personality, Jillian participated in a reality TV series with ABC’s The Bachelor. Jillian was a contestant on both season 19 of The Bachelor and season 2 of The Bachelor in Paradise.

After failing to receive enough roses to continue dating in the public eye, Jillian decided it would be best to focus on her first love, live TV.

Jillian is thrilled to be in Colorado Springs and excited to be the SOCO CW Star. When she is not at the station, you’ll find her hopping around Colorado Springs exploring the area and meeting more of the great people of Colorado.” For complete story go to Fox21 News.



GalaxyFest, a comic con..sorta

In fact, as you’ll notice, we don’t even have “Con” in our name.

It’s time to break into something NEW! While supporting today’s pop culture and multiple genres, from Anime to Zombies, we are creating community partnerships and relationships with local businesses. This means better events, more venues, more local discounts and more reasons to support the causes. All in the beautiful downtown Colorado Springs, at the base of world renowned Pikes Peak.

We are about the entire family. We are about supporting S.T.E.M., Literature and the Arts. There are things for the kids to do and learn. Whether it’s building a 3D object or learning First Aid for Superheros in the GalaxyFleet Academy.

Feeling Special? Do you want to celebrate GalaxyFest in the same way as the Celebrity Guests? Make sure you get your VIP tickets. Friday and Saturday night’s meet and greets will be held at a local venue outside the hotel. And don’t forget, you’ll have VIP seating at most stage events throughout the weekend.

Adult programming is at night (we recommend making your reservations at the hotel. This year we are covering everything from Burlesque to a Rave. All to celebrate the Rocky Horror Picture Show’s 41st anniversary. Or you could just stay up all night and game in our 24 hour gaming rooms.

Your CosPlay is the most important thing for an event like this. GalaxyFest has brought in professional costume judges for the Adult and Kids costume contests. Need to fix it up with a simple safety pin? Look for the CosPlay repair booth. And then there’s the media. We have created the Paparazzi Guild just for GalaxyFest. You’ll just never know when you’ll be seen through the eyes of the camera and be represented in our live social media blitz (or heck, even the local newspaper).

Schedule of events*:

Friday – Charity event, Dealer’s Room, Opening Ceremonies, Gaming Room, and AfterDark programming, VIP meet and greet

Saturday – Dealer’s Room, Kids programming and hands-on, Adult CosPlay contest, Gaming Room, various Panels, and AfterDark programming, VIP meet and greet

Sunday – Kids Day – 12 and under admitted FREE with valid adult badge. Kids CosPlay contest and more, Closing Ceremonies.

*Schedule subject to change. Details to develop throughout the year.
