Hello Con Maniacs,
Well it looks like all of you that went on the 2010 Cruise Trek had a great time. Lets take a look!
Here is a great photo of the featured stars of the trip Wil Wheaton(Wesley Crusher-Next Generation), Vaughn Armstrong (few actors have performed in all four of the new Star Trek series: Next Generation, Voyager, Deep Space Nine, and as Admiral Forrest in Enterprise. He has been more different characters in the various Star Trek series than any other actor – 12 in all!), Suzie Plakson (A Vulcan, a half-Klingon, an Andorian, a Q in various Star Trek series) and Denise Crosby (Tasha Yar-Next Generation)
Here is a great group shot of everyone who was on the cruise.
As you can see a great time was had by all. It would have been a great cruise to be on. If you were there I would love to hear about your exploits. You can reach me at Magid@raybin.com
Remember, if you want to see a specific event featured here on www.conmania.com contact the promoters of the events and let them know. If you do not know how drop me a line and Ill be happy to assist.
I know everyone is getting ready for their respective New Years events and celebrations so I wish you all a very safe and happy night. Don’t forget to have a sober driver so you are all safe.

Hello Con Maniacs,
Well the show the handsome Ryan Robbins switched to from Gate to the Sanctuary is this one, Armegeddon Expo. (http://armageddonexpo.com/au/) This event will occur at The Dome, Sydney Showground, Olympic Park, February 26/27th 2011
Their guest list is fantastic. Makes me want to go home for a visit. By attending this event you will get a chance to meet some of the following great people.
David Hewlett – Dr Rodney McKay in StargateAtlantis. I am going share a great photo of me and my Mum with David at an event we worked together in 2006.
Christian Kane – Lindsey McDonald in Angel and Eliot Spencer in Leverage. Christian Kane has always been a scene stealer. He was one of the best foils Angel had.
Laura Vandervoort– Kara Zor-El in Smallville and Lisa in V. In other words, Laura is Supergirl…
Christopher Heyerdahl – major roles in Stargate Atlantis, Sanctuary as well as appearances in Supernatural, Twilight New Moon and Smallville.
Karen Allen – Marion Ravenwoodin Indiana Jones films. I just adore this woman. I worked with her once in the mid 1980′s on a film with Bryan Brown. Wonderful woman.
Patricia Tallman – LytaAlexander in Babylon 5. I caught up with Patricia at the Hollywood Xpo at the Universal Hilton several weeks ago. She is doing better than ever…
Rainbow Sun Francks – Rainbow co-stars in the first season of Stargate Atlantis as bad ass Lieutenant Aiden Ford. He previously hosted Canada’s MuchMusic as a VeeJay, and writes and performs in his own hip-hop group, The Oddities.
How about that amazing talent and fantastic Magician Colin Cunningham. When I worked with him, he did some magic for us that rivaled that of Criss Angel – Sometimes referred to as Canada’s ‘Gary Oldman’, this California native has played everything from the ‘straight up’ Major Davis on STARGATE SG-1, to ‘crooked’ cop Brian Curtis on DaVINCI’S INQUEST. Cunningham is currently starring on two television series. The first as John Pope in the new STEVEN SPIELBERG/DREAMWORKS produced, FALLING SKIES and again as Neil Styles on HBO Canada’s LIVING IN YOUR CAR. Cunningham also recurs as Roy Lane (the brother of Hugh Dillon’s, Ed Lane) on CBS/CTV’s FLASHPOINT.
Born and raised in Los Angeles, California, Cunningham has been pursued by Arnold Shwarzenngegger in THE SIXTH DAY and put his life on the line for Jennifer Garner in ELEKTRA. Indie favorites include BEST IN SHOW and BREAKFAST WITH SCOT.
This next woman is the epitome of grace and style. The fantastic singer and dancer, Nana Visitor who played Kira Nerys in Star Trek Deep Space Nine. I cannot say how much I adore this talented lady.
I know you all remember Ryan Robbins who plays Henry Foss on Sanctuary. A character actor, Ryan is constantly reinventing himself; aspiring to keep each character fresh and unique. Ryan, an avid comic book fan, can be seen most recently guest starring in reoccurring roles on Blade, Battlestar Galactica, Stargate: Atlantis, Season 3 of The Collector andthe series lead in the CTV series Alice I Think. Robbins can also be seen in the independent films The Cabin Movie and When Jessie was Born (a multiple award winner) as the lead. His other credits include Supernatural, Smallville, Catwoman, Walking Tall, The Days, Kingdom Hospital and The Bug (winner of three Leo Awards). You can also see Robbins in Steven Spielberg’s Taken and the highly acclaimed Steven Spielberg mini-series Into the West.
Some special events within the expo will include:
- Voice acting workshop
- Mela Lee, Magnolia Memoir Music concert
- Live Wrestling
- Amusement rides
- Animation screening room
- SEPARATE main stage area’s to avoid sound issues
- Pre-prepared timetables for Photo and Autograph times

Hello there Con Maniacs,
Lets take a trip to Newfoundland in Canada for Sci Fi on the Rock which will be held at the The Holiday Inn,
180 Portugal Cove Road, St. John’s Newfoundland April 16 & 17, 2011. I know it sounds like it is far away. Really it is not that far from New York. This is a fan run event.
So far they have a rather eclectic guest line up. First up it the gorgeous Suzie Plakson. Suzie has played several different Star Trek characters over the years. A Vulcan doctor named Selar, Worf’s Klingon mate K’Ehleyr, a female Q and Tarah an Andorian on Enterprise.
Also from Star Trek is JG Hertzler who is best known for his portrayal of of the Klingon General Martok. Although he is an amazing actor who has appeared on Six Feet Under, Roswell, Charmed, Highlander: The Series, Zorro and so many more.
Now we travel through the eye of the storm to Stargate with David Nykl who played Doctor Zalenka.
Last but certainly not least is Robert Axelrod. Robert is an American actor who has been in several movies and lent his voice to countless television shows including Digimon, having started anime voice acting in 1980. Two of his best known roles was that of Lord Zedd, the main antagonist of the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, and Finster, the original Mighty Morphin Power Rangers monster maker. He has also portrayed a Paul McCartney look-a-like on the popular sitcom, Family Matters.
Just to get a chance to go to Newfoundland would be a treat. I love Canada, it is a beautiful country with wonderful people. I have been to Toronto and Vancouver. Both are great cities. Vancouver is so plush and green and Toronto has a wonderful atmosphere due to being on the lake. If you get a chance you should make the trip to this event. If you do let me know, you can reach me at Magid@raybin.com
So many choices! I can travel via starship or Stargate…Hmmm what to do?
First off I would like to say thank you to everyone who is enjoying this site. I hope you are all able to have a happy and safe Thanksgiving. Whether you are spending it with family or friends or Klingons! Try to take it easy and enjoy the day and the people around you and know that if you are not with someone you will be in my thoughts. This is a time to give thanks for what you have. Be that your health, love, a roof over your head, peace of mind etc.
Now some Trek Trax…This is a smaller event and will be going on Feb 18-20, 2011 at the Holiday Inn Atlanta Perimeter, 4386 Chamblee-Dunwoody Road, Atlanta GA 30341
Some of their guests I know quite well. The first being Tim Russ. Tuvok from Star Trek Voyager. He really is a great guy and an amazing musician.
Next up we have the Klingon Duras sisters, played by Barbara March and Gwynyth Walsh. They are a naughty pair…
We can’t forget Larry Nemecek. For Larry Nemecek, theatre and journalism degrees added up to a life in newspapers and two state AP news writing awards—until the 1992 publication of The Star Trek: The Next Generation Companionfrom Pocket Books, twice revised, that began when his fanzine TNG guide found its way to the show’s grateful staff writers. That book kicked off a move to Los Angeles and a life ever since spent living and working in Trekland—a past, present and future all now chronicled at his larrynemecek.com web site and TREKLANDblog, chock-full of deep thoughts and even deeper video interviews with folks from all across Trekland.
There you have it folks, a great little show. If you going, drop me a line. Heck even let me know how your Thanksgiving goes…Magid@raybin.com
Time to go truss the Turkey and get it ready for it’s big performance…Happy Thanksgiving everyone…
Hello Con Maniacs,
I hope everyone is having a good week and is looking forward to Thanksgiving. Dec 5-12, 2010 is the amazing Star Trek Cruise.This is going to be both fun and relaxing. The ship departs from Florida for a 7-day cruise with 4 ports of call including Ft. Lauderdale, San Juan, Puerto Rico, Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas, and Philipsburg, St. Maarten. You will be aboard the luxurious Celebrity Solstice.
Accompanying you on thisadventure will be my good friend Robert Picardo(The Doctor) from Star Trek Voyager.
And the gorgeous and statuesque Marina Sirtis-Deanna Troi from Next Generation.
And John De Lancie, the most misunderstood villain “Q” from Next Generation and Voyager.
A woman very dear to my heart whom I have had many a wonderful time with, Chase Masterson who played Leeta on Deep Space Nine.
As if that were not enough the son of the legend himself, Rod Roddenberry.
They have a great lineup and you get them all to yourselves(well sort of) for 7 days. The staring price for the cruise is $1,290. Keep in mind this includes all your meals and an autograph from each star.
What a relaxing way to enter the Christmas season. If your going I would love to hear from you. You can reach me at Magid@raybin.com
Oh dear, the shields are down and we just hit an ice berg! Is that Celene Dion I hear singing?!? Leonardo where are you?
