Hosted once again by our good friend Mike Breaux of The Breaux Show, the contest will be held in the panel room at the convention (start time and duration to be determined). But this year we decided to include a few costumed characters to help Mike out!

And our friend Robert Franzese as Peter Griffin!

There are no age restrictions, anyone can watch and play! We will reveal each item one at a time, then ask a trivia question related to it, after which we will randomly select a person in the audience that has their hand raised to answer. If they get it right, they win the prize on the spot. If not, we ask a different audience member. Wet, lather, rinse, repeat. It’s very free and open!

So stop by and test your knowledge of all things geek!

More retro sci-fi thrills, as Star Trek Continues warps in for Retro Con 2014!

stc-3

We will be airing the 1st episode of the fan-produced and critically acclaimed show at the convention, along with additional shorts and more from the new series.

The Enterprise Continues its Journey…

stc-2

The USS Enterprise’s historic five-year mission continues with all new episodes of the original series. “Star Trek: Continues”, a new Trek series, beams down with exciting adventures of the Federation’s most heroic crew led by Captain James T. Kirk. The lighting and color of the highly accurate sets accentuate the equally detailed props and costumes, matching the original series that ran from 1966-69! With acting and stories that also replicate the original series, the adventures are sure to dazzle even the most die hard Trek fans. Witness now the untold morality plays that explore the final frontier and more importantly… the human condition. Fans of the original series will especially enjoy the pilot episode as a familiar guest star from the original series reprises his role in a sequel entitled “Pilgrim of Eternity”.

spot“Back home, we call him ‘the miracle worker’.” Star Trek Continues’ Montgomery Scott, a.k.a Chris Doohan, to join us at Retro Con!

CD

Chris is no stranger to Star Trek. As a child, he spent time on the sets of the original series with his dad, James “Scotty” Doohan. At 19 years old, Chris was asked to be in the first Star Trek movie, Star Trek: The Motion Picture, which was only the beginning of several appearances on that beloved ship. His most recent trek movie role put him in the transporter room of the newest Star Trek installment, “Star Trek Into Darkness”, which followed his role in J. J. Abrams’ “Star Trek” in 2009 when he shared the screen with the new Scotty, Simon Pegg.

Chris has also played several character voice-overs for the Starship Farragut animated episodes, including that of the iconic engineer himself. Chris is currently playing “Scotty” in the critically acclaimed web series, Star Trek Continues!
