Pavel Chekov. Tasha Yar. Boba Fett. Chief Galen Tyrol. If any---or all---of these names are familiar to you, then you might be a science fiction junkie.

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 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.)
