Katee at Starbase Indy

Source: Slice of Sci-Fi

Beaming in to this year’s Starbase Indy will be the top-gun Viper pilot in Galactica’s fleet, a Jaffa rebel leader and warrior from Stargate SG-1, and the female security chief from Capt. Picard’s Enterprise. Convention action runs Thankgiving weekend, Nov. 24-26, in the Marriott East, 7202 E. 21st St., Indianapolis, Indiana.

Katee Sackhoff, who plays Starbuck on the new Battlestar Galactica, will make her only U.S. convention appearance in 2006 at Starbase Indy. Her Starbuck is not your stereotypical female. The cigar-smoking, card-playing Starbuck is bold, bucks authority and disobeys orders when she believes she’s right. Katee will be at opening ceremonies Friday, will be on stage Saturday and will attend the Saturday night Dinner with the Stars.

Starbase Indy is a fan-run convention in its 11th year. At the convention, attendees have multiple opportunities to interact with the stars. In addition, the laid-back atmosphere and varied programming provide a perfect opportunity to meet old friends or to build new friendships that will last a lifetime.

Other events include the masquerade, tentatively set for 8 p.m. Friday; Dinner with the Stars on Saturday night; and a special surprise performance featuring most of the guests on Sunday. Other activities include gaming, a CSI workshop, and programs on astronomy.
