Stars of Star Trek, Doctor Who, more to appear at sci-fi convention Sept. 16-18 in Rockville
Beam yourself up to Intervention 7, a sci-fi and gaming convention being held in Rockville September 16-18 at the Hilton hotel at 1750 Rockville Pike. Hurry to use pre-registration online; you'll have to pay higher prices at the door during the actual event otherwise.
Guests scheduled to appear and sign autographs include Dwight Schultz, Captain H.M. "Howling Mad" Murdock from The A-Team; Arthur Darvill of Doctor Who; Rene Auberjonois of Benson and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine; Juliet Landau of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel; Gigi Edgley of Farscape, and Jon St. John, the voice of the PC/video game character Duke Nukem.
Please note that you will have to pay a cash fee (no credit cards) for each autograph, and only some of the stars' fees can be paid online in advance with your credit card. See this page for the details. There will also be a separate photo op room and fee if you want to pose for a picture with any of the stars. Those fees are listed on the same page I linked to, as well.
Also appearing, but not signing autographs, will be recording artist, electronics innovator, and now professor, Thomas Dolby. The Pike District is one of the organizations sponsoring the convention.
