It’s time once again for FanX: The Salt Lake Comic Convention at the Salt Palace in downtown Salt Lake City, Utah. Yes, Starfleet Command’s Seventh Fleet will have a big presence at the con.
At booth 2278, members of the fleet will be hosting a charity booth to raise funds for the American Cancer Society. There will be a tribute to the late Nichelle Nichols and the debut of a brand new photo op setup. In the past we’ve had full sized shuttles, a Borg alcove, Captain Kirk’s command chair, a life-sized action figure box and a transporter console. What will the new photo op be? Come and find out. Many thanks to the USS Pulsar for heading up the booth this year.
Also the USS White Buffalo will be running their Artemis bridge simulator in one of the gaming rooms (255D) at the convention. They will be running the simulator with the fan-made Star Trek graphics. Gather a group of friends together and take your bridge stations and see if you can survive the challenges that await you.
Starfleet Command’s Seventh Fleet thanks Dan Farr, the staff at FanX and all of the many volunteers who help put this together. Running a con is no small feat. We are very grateful for this opportunity to perform our community service mission at this event.
