Rex Mundi LLC, has today announced their intent to move forward with the production of Galacticon 4, a celebration of Science Fiction pop-culture, focusing on the range of Battlestar Galactica television series (the 1978 original series, the re-imagined series, Caprica, and Blood & Chrome) and for the first time, also on Firefly. To be held in the Seattle Center in Seattle, Washington from July 31st - August 2nd, 2015.
The prior Galacticon series of events had been held every five years, this time, however, fans will only have to wait two years for the next installment of this exciting event.
In a departure from the format of Galacticon 3, which was held alongside Comicpalooza in Houston, Texas, as a paired event, Galacticon 4 will be a wholly stand-alone and self-contained convention. “Working with the wonderful fan organizations around the greater Seattle region and their excitement around this event is part of what drew us to look at the Northwest as the perfect place to hold our next event,” said Daniel Allen, co-owner of Rex Mundi.
“We have already been in close contact with Erin Grey, president of Heroes for Hire, working on securing a talent lineup second to none,” said Daniel.
This year Battlestar Galactica celebrated its 35th anniversary of the original series, and it’s lasting popularity paired with the similarly energetic fandom surrounding Joss Whedon’s Firefly should make for an unforgettable event.
