Stage 9 Studios Fan Appreciation Weekend

Friday-Sunday, October 19-21, 2018
Stage 9 Studios
516 W William Ave, Kingsland GA  31548
Stage 9 Studios is the former home of Starship Farragut and Star Trek Continues and the new home of Starship Republic, Dreadnought Dominion and other Star Trek fan series.  The USS Republic took "away teams" to three previous Farragut Fests, in December 2012, December 2013 and December 2014.  Star Trek Continues did not host any open houses of these studios during the production of their series.  After Star Trek Continues wrapped their series, the sets were sold to Ray Tesi, executive producer of Starship Republic.  This year's Fan Appreciation Weekend is the first time the sets have been opened to the public almost four years.

SphinxCon & AxaCon

Friday-Sunday, November 2-4, 2018
Crowne Plaza Atlanta-Airport
1325 Virginia Ave, Atlanta GA  30344
The Royal Manticoran Navy (TRMN) is the fan association for the Honor Harrington series written by David Weber and SphinxCon is the newest literary military science fiction and fantasy convention ("litcon") dedicated to the Honorverse.  Leveraging the experience of sponsoring and running HonorCon in Raleigh, North Carolina, and MantiCon in Minneapolis, Minnesota, a group of TRMN members thought to continue the tradition in Atlanta.  Being the home of Dragon*Con and a plethora of other conventions throughout the year, as well as being a major airline hub, it was felt that the concept could be taken to the next level.  This is the very first SphinxCon!

But... Where's the Trek?
Here it is!  The relocation of Axanar Productions, which created the award-winning Star Trek fan film "Prelude to Axanar," to OWC Studios in Lawrenceville (northeast of Atlanta), gave us an opportunity to host AxaCon, the official convention of Axanar, for all fans of Star Trek and the Axanar universe.  Creators and actors from "Prelude to Axanar" will preview the upcoming two parts of “The Four Years War” as well as fill you in on every detail of the Axanar Universe you could ever want to know!

SphinxCon guest of honor David Gerrold (author, "The Trouble with Tribbles" and much more) joins AxaCon guests of honor J. G. Hertzler (Martok from Star Trek: Deep Space Nine), Gary Graham (Ambassador Soval from Star Trek: Enterprise) and a slate of Axanar and other Star Trek fan film actors and creators.  More information about guests, programming, special events and admission prices can be found on the AxaCon page of the SphinxCon web site.

Henry Darrow, who played Admiral Savar in the penultimate first-season episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation, is a Puerto Rican character actor best known for his role as Manolito "Mano" Montoya on the 1960s television series The High Chaparral.
The USS Republic NCC-1371 was originally commissioned as a chapter of STARFLEET International on May 14, 1988, at the Dixie-Trek convention in Atlanta, Georgia.  As of October 16, 2018, the Republic crew includes 35 members who are active members of STARFLEET in good standing.
The Republic plans and coordinates an active schedule of events for its members, but does not hold meetings on a consistently fixed date each month.
Because the USS Republic is a duly commissioned chapter of STARFLEET International and is bound and governed by its Constitution and By-Laws, membership in STARFLEET is a prerequisite for membership in the Republic.  STARFLEET membership dues are $5 for one person and Republic chapter dues are $10 ($15 total).  The Republic collects a single combined dues payment for both groups and remits the STARFLEET portion to them on the Republic member's behalf.  STARFLEET offers family discounts for additional members as shown below.  Additional information about membership options, amounts due for additional family members, payment options and instructions for other forms of payment is on the "How to Join" page of our award-winning web site.
