The Facts about Media Tie-In Writing
We see hundreds of books out each year that tie in to shows like Doctor Who or the latest scifi/fantasy film adaptations. Stories tie into RPG realms like Pathfinder Tales, Dragonlance, or Forgotten Realms. Does media tie-in writing deserve the shlocky reputation it has? Is it moving into more respectable realms? How does one get into media tie-in writing and what are the challenges of that kind of professional pursuit?

On the day of James Kirk's birth, his father dies on his ship in a last stand against a mysterious alien time-traveling vessel looking for Ambassador Spock, who, in this time, is also a child on Vulcan disdained by his neighbors for his half-human heritage. Twenty-five years later, Kirk has grown into a young troublemaker. Challenged by Captain Christopher Pike to realize his potential in Starfleet, he comes to annoy instructors like young Commander Spock. Suddenly, there is an emergency at Vulcan and the newly commissioned USS Enterprise is crewed with promising cadets like Nyota Uhura, Hikaru Sulu, Pavel Chekov and even Kirk himself, thanks to Leonard McCoy's medical trickery. Together, this crew will have an adventure in the final frontier where the old legend is altered forever as a new version of it begins.

You Must Be An Idiot
Clever trivia game with a twist. Each round, a rotating "genius" chooses a question for the other players to answer. One or more of those players might be randomly (and secretly) designated as "idiots", in which case they must write an incorrect answer. There are several ways to score points: get the answer right when you're not an idiot; correctly accuse an idiot; avoid getting found out when you're an idiot; or trick others into accusing you when you're not an idiot. These scoring dynamics lead to plenty of interesting decisions, making this much more interesting and tactical than your average trivia game.

Comparative Religion in Star Trek
Back by popular demand, this 'Religion in Star Trek' panel has brought lively and thought-provoking discussions. This year, we'll be using the Borg as a springboard for our discussion. Those who seek to be closer to God (or Allah, or Mohammad, etc.) strive for perfection by following religious teachings, much like the Borg strive for perfection in assimilating other cultures and technology (a conservative approach). Others argue that, like the Star Trek universe's inclusiveness, the Almighty takes you as you are (a liberal approach). Let's explore this strange new world.

In the political era of us vs. them and the on-going "culture war" at SFWA and the Hugos, what has happened to the notion of professionalism in the writing industry?

How are those of us on the sidelines actually greasing the treads of their tanks, and how might we, as a body of more unified writers, readers, and consumers find ways to end the destructive conflict?

Dreams of Space -- A Special Space Program at StarFest

A special presentation highlighting the space program that could have been. Hosted by StarFest emcee Kevin Atkins.

The Space Shuttle era has ended! Construction of the Space Station is complete! Our manned spaceflight program is in a state of flux. With these thoughts in mind, Kevin thought it would be interesting to go back in time to the days before NASA. Before President Kennedy pledged that the US would go to the Moon and return before the end of the 1960′s.

With the end of WWII, the beginning of the Atomic Age, and the first use of large scale rockets as weapons, outer space was seen as the next great challenge. With the defection of rocket engineers such as Dr. Werhner von Braun and his team to the US, the groundwork was in place for our future journeys into space. A little known fact, Project Mars: A Technical Tale is a science fiction novel written by on Braun in 1949. It tells the story, in somewhat technical terms, of the first manned mission to Mars.

Join Kevin Atkins in Main Events on Sunday morning for a look at what was imagined to be our future in space. He’ll be presenting an illustrated look at some of the early designs for space shuttles, lunar landers, space stations and even a mission to Mars. He’ll examine the visions of space presented in a series of Collier’s magazine articles often referred to as the Collier’s Space Program.

In 1952, Collier’s magazine sponsored a gathering of the world’s greatest space experts who, in a series of illustrated articles, outlined one of the first comprehensive scenarios ever conceived for the exploration of space. To translate the hardware concepts of Dr. von Braun and Dr. Willey Ley into visual form, Collier’s commissioned artists Chesley Bonestell, Fred Freeman and Rolf Klep. The Collier’s series was collected in three books: Across the Space Frontier (1952), Conquest of the Moon (1953) and The Exploration of Mars (1956). These books along with the magazines are highly prized.

 The AIAA has recently reprinted the entire Collier's series in its on-line newsletter. New scans were made of all the pages, which were then digitally restored and enhanced.

Our journey moves from the printed page to television.

What did Disneyland and Werhner von Braun have in common? A visionary named Walt Disney. Disney had a television series, Walt Disney Presents, which he used to promote the park. He had segments that covered all of his Lands but one. After the Collier’s series was brought to Disney’s attention, he had his final segment, Walt Disney Presents: Tomorrow Land. He produced three segments that traced the history of Man’s fascination with space, from the earliest observations of the night sky through the first manned Mars mission. These three programs -- Man in Space (1955), Tomorrow the Moon (1955) and Mars and Beyond (1957) -- utilize animation and live action to tell their stories. Wernher von Braun served as Technical Advisor and also appeared in several of the episodes.

Kevin will present a behind the scenes look at these three productions.

Star Trek Collectibles Auction
A long time ago, in what seems a galaxy far, far away... Stephen Walker used to do convention auctions. For some crazy reason, he’s going to do it again this year. Why, you ask? Because he’s got some stuff worth auctioning. StarFest’s font of information - the guy with the largest Star Trek collection I’ve ever seen in 30+ years of Star Trek collecting -- is selling it off. Let’s just call it what it is, the “Phil Watson almost completely everything ever made for Star Trek” collection.

Make a trip over to the information tables in the Atrium of the Marriott to take a peek at some of the rare stuff that Phil is taking out of the vault to sell at StarFest. 

Phil is going to bring down enough stuff for the auction that there are bound to be some great deals to be had. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to our convention charity - The Dumb Friends League of Denver.
