Shore Leave Event Information

Be sure to also check out this year's list of workshops and our science track.

Richard Hatch Memorial Service

On Saturday evening, immediately after the Masquerade a short memorial service will be held for the late Richard Hatch. Richard Hatch was known for many roles but to many of his fans, he will always be Apollo from the Original Battlestar Galactica TV series.

The Memorial will be held in front of the hotel where the Cylon Raider will be parked. There will be a short video presentation and follow up by actor and host Steven Elliott. As many have fond memories of Richard, this will be a great chance to share them with other fans. You will also have the opportunity to sign the memorial register and leave a parting message. Thumb rings with Richard’s name, date of birth and date of passing will be distributed.

Cylon Raider

Continuing the on-going series of Sci-Fi related vehicles on display during the convention, we're delighted to welcome back Gene Haggerty and his scale replica Cylon raider.

Eighth Annual Robbie Greenberger Memorial Texas Hold-em Poker Tournament

In memory of Robbie Greenberger, we'll be holding our Eighth Annual Texas Hold-Em Tournament on the evening of Saturday, July 8, in Salon A, immediately after the Masquerade. (Tournament details and entry requirements.)

TARDIS Photo Booth

The TARDIS Photo Booth will let you make all of Time and Space your backyard and come back with the photos to prove it. (NOTE: When visiting ancient Pompeii, be sure to set your alarm early on Volcano Day. Do not step on the butterfly.)

Mystery Trekkie Theater 3000 - Series Finale!

Join us on Sunday afternoon in the Valley room as the merry band of mischief makers Peter David, Robert Greenberger, and Michael Jan Friedman close out the convention with the final installment of Mystery Trekkie Theater 3000. Be prepared to laugh (or at least groan) at the final installment of this Shore Leave tradition.

Meet the Pros Party

Our annual Meet the Pros author meet-and-greet takes place at 10pm on Friday, July 7. This year's event includes the premiere of several new books by our guests.

Vic's Place

Do you miss all the fun times at Vic's Place? (Sure, it was just a holosuite, but there was always something going on.) Now you can be part of it all. Sing and dance the night away at Vic's Place in Frankie & Vinnie's on Friday evening.

Game Room

The Shore Leave Game Room offers role playing games, Collector Card Games, and miniature war games - plus whatever YOU decide to bring!

The game room opens Friday at noon, Saturday and Sunday at 9 AM, and closes when the staff is too tired to stay awake. Come spend some time with us! If you would like further information, please email Game Room Chair, Jim Kratzer.

Temple of Trek

Join Dr. Trekwell and The Temple of Trek Choir Sunday morning for an old fashion fannish REVIVAL. Hymns, readings from "The Book of Roddenberry" and other fun are sure to dispel the DEMON of 10 Forward and get you going for the rest of the con. The Temple will also raise money for charity.

The goal of the temple is to serve fandom and save them from a MUNDANE existence. By attending, you'll have fun and be able to say. "Yes Mom, l went to services." PRAISE TREK!!
