You also might also be aware that the actors who play all those characters (on Star Trek, Star Wars and Battlestar Galactica, respectively) are coming to Halifax for a big science fiction/fantasy/comic spectacular, called the HAL-CON : Sci-Fi / Fantasy / Comic Convention, along with a slew of major comic book creative talents. Woo!
But before you get too excited, it’s not until October 2010. Frak! While you wait---and sharpen your Bat’leth---you can be part of the hype-building by visiting cafepress.com/HAL_CON or call 877-809-1659 to pick up the official merchandise for the convention (and help defray costs, presumably). You can get hoodies, t-shirts, trucker caps, thermoses, clocks, teddy bears, even dog t-shirts all emblazoned with the awesome Bender-esque Citadel Clock Tower Robot icon.
Now, if they’d only rename it “HAL-9000”-CON. (A little 2001:A Space Odyssey reference there for you non-subscribers.)
