Hello Con Manics,
In these last few days before Christmas I though it might be nice to take a look back at some great events from 2010. Lets take a look at Starbase Indy 2010. This is a great Indianapolis event. In 2010 they had some great guests. The first of which is one of my favorite Borg, Icheb aka Manu Intiraymi. Below are not only some great pics of him but some youtube video from the event.
Next up is our favorite Vulvan, Tuvok played by Tim Russ. Tim is not only a terrific actor but also an amazing musician. Working with him is always a joy.
Also appearing at Starbase Indy was Ethan Phillips and Crystal Allen. Ethan of course played the cook Neelix and Crystal who Crystal is known in the sci-fi community as one of the three Orion Slave Girls when she starred as “D’Nesh,” on the Star Trek: Enterprise episode “Bound.” She also worked with Tim Russ and Ethan Phillips in Star Trek: Of Gods and Men as the ship’s Navigator, Yara.
This looks to have been a rousing event. Due to it being more intimate everyone was able to really get to know Manu, Tim,, Ethan and Crystal. A great way to spend a weekend.
As for me, I got an early Christmas present with finding Star Trek: Voyager on my Tivo in HD. Im so excited…Remember if you want more detailed coverage of this event on Con Mania, make sure to contact the promoter of the event. You can contact me at Magid@raybin.com
Hello Con Maniacs,
I hope your countdown to Christmas is going well. Continuing my coverage of Australian conventions. Upcoming in Melbourne at the Rydges Melbourne, 186 Exhibition Street, Melbourne, VIC on January 30, 2011 is Oz Trek 4.
Headlining this event is Brent Spiner who portrayed the Android Data in Star Trek: Next Generation.
Next up from one of my favorite Treks is Ethan Phillips who portrayed Neelix in Star Trek: Voyager.
Also appearing is Hallie Todd who was Data’s short lived daughter Lal. Kind of a sad character.
I love Brent, not only is he a wonderful actor but he has a singular wit that is pleasure to see. Ethan is hilarious. I have seen the skit he and Robert Picardo do and they are fantastic. Neelix was one of my favorite character on Voyager. Watching him slowly make Tuvok a bit more human until he finally “danced” for Neelix on his farewell episode brought tears to my eyes. Hallie Todd gave a very touching performance on Next Generation. It was very touching.
Personally I love Melbourne. The trams are reminiscent of San Francisco. I used to have a very dear friend who lived there. If your attending this event please let me know at Magid@raybin.com
Well folks, 10 days and counting until Santa Claus squeezes himself down your chimney, or surfs up to your house(depending on what part of the world your in) try to enjoy and take a deep breath and enjoy this time of year. To those of you who are maybe alone or having a tough time please know that you can always chat to me. Here is my Facebook page. http://www.facebook.com/MagidHarbison

Beaming down to Indianapolis this November 26-28, 2010 is the 15th annual Starbase Indy event held at the Indianapolis Marriott East 7202 East 21st St., Indianapolis, IN 46219 Starbase Indy is a fan run event that is somewhat smaller than your Comic Cons and such. But the intimacy created by a smaller event like this makes it a really fun experience.
In attendance will be Manu Intiraymi who played Icheb in Star Trek: Voyager.
