Scenes from recent Creation Star Trek/Sci-Fi Conventions
|DEAN DEVLIN and company were at the 2002 Creation Minneapolis
Convention to promote the release of Dean's scary (but funny) spider
flick EIGHT LEGGED FREAKS. From left to right: DEAN, DAVID ARQUETTE,
KARI WUHRER, RICKI OVERTON (our favorite sci fi comedian) and director
|| DEAN DEVLIN (center), screenwriter and producer, stopped by with
actors HANK AZARIA (left) and HARRY SHEARER (right) to promote his
film GODZILLA. With worldwide revenues topping $300 million, seems
like Dean and Co. are unstoppable. Can INDEPENDENCE DAY 2 be far
| Buffy fans converged on the Burbank
Airport Hilton when we brought in heartthrobs JAMES MARSTERS (Spike)
NICHOLAS BRENDON (Xander) to talk about the next season, David Boreanz'
new series ANGEL and of course their missing in action leader Sarah
(maybe we'll get her to come to a show one of these days...)
| JULIE CAITLIN BROWN, of Babylon 5 and Star Trek:
Deep Space Nine
||Vaporized but not forgotten, Creation fan favorite
LOUISE FLETCHER delighted our audience with tales of DS 9's Kai
Winn and her illustrious movie career. Winn and Dukat's pairing
had to be one of the lowest (read that highest) points in DS 9's
fabulous story. We're gonna miss that show!
|Speaking of the notorious but irresistible Gul Dukat, MARC ALAIMO
and some of his many fan followers enjoyed a moment recently, talking
about the good old days of Bajoran occupation and playing the heavy
(Marc always gets the pussycat roles)!
||JAMIE LEE CURTIS was at a show recently promoting
VIRUS, that unstoppable and evolving radio signal from space that
uses our body parts for, well...body parts. Jamie looks and sounds
excellent, and we reminisced about her stints in Halloween, True
Lies, and Virus.
|TERRY FARRELL may be taking it on the lip from Ted
Danson now (and dishing it back) but hopefully she's loving it.
We miss her as Jadzia Dax of DS: 9.
||Glamorous JERI RYAN isn't looking a bit assimilated
as she signs autographs for a mountain of fans recently at a Creation
event. 7 of 9 helped put Voyager on the map, and nothing will ever
be the same.
| Lending personal support, GARRETT WANG has the same crush on
Jeri that Harry has on 7. Call it intergalactic attraction. Garrett
by the way has become a master of impressions, leaving a wake of
hysterical victims in his performances.
||LEONARD NIMOY and ALIEN VOICES wowed a recent Grand Slam audience
with an amazing radio play performance of FIRST MEN IN THE MOON.
Nimoy and cohort John De Lancie have fashioned a charming, rotating
ensemble of actors including Armin Shimerman, Roxanne Dawson, Dwight
Schulz and Susan Bay. Add musicians and foley artists to the brew
and you have some very creative entertainment!
| DWIGHT SCHULZ is well known to Creation fans from
his role on the A Team and of course as the absent minded but brilliant
Barclay on Star Trek: Next Generation.
||Speaking of Next Gen, LEVAR BURTON made an extremely
rare appearance with us recently in which he discussed plans for
several TV and film projects in development. Seems LeVar isn't content
to rest on his laurels (which include several Emmy wins for his
distinguished "Reading Rainbow" TV series). Roots seems like such
a long time ago. And no one seems to no for sure what the powers
that be have in store for Geordi or the next Next Generation outing,
if in fact there is one.
| COSTUME CONTESTS display fans' collective creativity
all over the country. Remember the days of scarf-clad Doctors?
||It's not hard to love PATRICK MACNEE, that most distinguished
of actors who we have delighted to in countless TV and film roles.
As Steed in The Avengers, he set the standard for civility and refinement
while you killed your enemies. With Diana Rigg as the truly shagadelic
Mrs. Peel, no threat to the British Empire was safe. We've also
watched Patrick through Bond films and Battlestar Galactica. Through
it all we've admired this veteran character actor and leading man,
and we were ecstatic when he recently appeared at our show to promote
||When we first thought of the idea of bringing together
"The Four Captains", it seemed like a logistically impossible project
to pull off. But we did it! On the day of the historic summit, KATE
MULGREW and BILL SHATNER found a moment to chat and catch up on
things personal and professional.
| Two generations of Sisko, Jake and Dad, show off
the camaraderie between CIRROC LOFTON and AVERY BROOKS. Poor Avery
had to contend with watching Cirroc grow taller than him over the
course of the show. But like a proud father, he has nothing but
love for his acting mate. As for his character, Ben Sisko, he's
hopefully floating in a place where dramatic opportunity can summon
him back in a script's page.
||Two jesters for a world that needs a good laugh, PATRICK
STEWART and BILL SHATNER make observances about society, good fashion
sense and fan obsession. Their legendary screen personas mirror
largely the personalities of the actors in whom they reside. They
are playful, energetic, and ready for a scrap! And they like tight
jeans. And both can ride a horse REAL good!
| BILL SHATNER and AVERY BROOKS find a moment for some
serious discourse amidst the non-stop festivities. Media from all
over the world covered their appearance together.
|| THE FOUR CAPTAINS, TOGETHER AT LAST! What an achievement
for us! Star Trek spans an illustrious 33 year history, and promises
many more years and surprises to come. With talents like these,
it's not hard to see why fans just keep clammering for more!
| Saying good-bye, the FOUR CAPTAINS go down in history
as more than a curiosity or cultural footnote- one could say they
had the RIGHT STUFF...
