Shore Leave, A fan run Science Fiction Convention
Want to discuss the latest about Star Trek or Star Wars (and their many incarnations)? Or Battlestar Galactica? Perhaps Doctor Who? Or The Orville? What about favorites from a while ago... Smallville? Alien Nation, Buck Rogers, Farscape, or others? Maybe you'd like to find out more information about 3D printing, it's uses and future. Or share costuming ideas and trends? Want to find out more about making fan films/indie productions?
If you're an aspiring writer, attend one of our panels conducted by some of our guest authors. Discuss methods of writing, anthologies, selling your ideas and (of course) what they have coming up!
Have an idea for a panel you'd like to put together? Let us know!

The Ten Forward party takes its name from the Ten-Forward area on the Enterprise D. It's our Saturday evening party, with music and dancing. It takes place in the Hunt Ballroom immediately after Masquerade ends. (Generally sometime between 11:00 and 11:30, depending on the number of masquerade entries.) Join us as we dance the night away.
