It was tweeted that it might be cool to have an acting contest at the Galacticon III next year. I am the volunteer coordinator for the event and funny enough just today had a drama teacher express interest in being a volunteer. If this is something that everyone want's to see happen speak up and let us know.
This company has launched a line of BSG wear just for the female sifi fan. Check it out.

But, the stories that took place behind the camera are just as interesting as those fans saw played out…Continue
The Top Gun Stein prop replica goes on pre-sale in the morning 11/18/11. This is a very detailed replica and cool collectors piece.
Official Pix, the company that produces the Dallas Comic-Con and Scifi Expo, is doing some house cleaning and running a sale on overstock autographs. They have Katee Sackhoff and Tricia Helfer on sale for $14.00 as well as some Twilight and Firefly folks. An inexpensive way to add to your autograph collection.

Kane was on a break walking the exhibit hall and stopped at our table to talk about how he was a big fan of the show and said he collects BSG costumes. He said he had a…Continue
