Guest Request Contest

StarFestWho do you want to see?

We go through dozens of actors looking for the right mix of talent to bring to StarFest.

Every year we get close on some, get the cold shoulder from others, but eventually we manage to put together a mix of talent that makes for a great weekend. It’s impossible to promise that your favorite actor will be available, but we’d really like to know who you would like to see from the following people that are on our short list. Incidentally, some of them have already said no for this year, but we want to know if you think they are worth persuing in the future.

Win tickets…

When you submit your answers you will automatically be entered in a drawing for a pair of weekend adult tickets to StarFest 2011. We’ll be giving them away on the 21st of February. Spread the word and make your friends promise they’ll bring you with them if they win the tickets!

Your email address?

Please don’t enter the contest more than once. It is a waste of your time. We will only process one entry for each unique ip and email address. That means that if you enter using two different email addresses from the same computer, only one gets counted. That also means that if you enter from your home computer and your cell phone using the same email address, you will only get one entry. However, we don’t have any way of stopping you from entering from multiple computers with different email addresses. If you have an army of zombie computers all with their own email addresses, you could concievably stack the deck in your favor. However, we will exclude entries if we believe that they have been made through some sort of trickery… just don’t go there.

STARFEST 2010 – Welcomes Actor Gary Lockwood

Open the Pod Bay Doors, Hal. I have to get to Denver!

StarFest 2010 is truly “Full of Stars!”

Gary Lockwood, probably best known to Star Trek fans as Lt. Commander Gary Mitchell  in the 1966 pilot episode “Where No Man Has Bone Before”,  has been confirmed as a guest for the  STARFEST 2010 convention.

Of the many memorable roles he has played in his career, Science Fiction movie fans remember him best as astronaut Frank Poole in the Stanley Kubrick  futuristic epic 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968).  Ironically, Lockwood’s Frank Poole character (from “2001”) learns about Star Trek’s success in the novel “3001: A Final Odyssey”.

One of his most memorable TV roles, and one of the most memorable on the series, was on a 1969 episode of  “Love American Style” (1969) episode  in which he plays a guy who is told his mouth is too small. To test it out, he accidentally wraps his mouth around a doorknob and gets stuck! His co-star in that episode was none other than his wife at the time, Stefanie Powers.

Since we are actually celebrating the real 2010:  Space Odyssey this year, we thought it would be only fitting to have a guest from the movie that started it all.  Unfortunately his co-star in the movie, Keir Dullea, was unable to join him on the journey to Denver.  I have it on good authority, however, that the Monolith might be making a return visit.

We are happy to welcome Gary Lockwood to Denver
