Sci-Con brings 'Battlestar Galactica' stars, astronaut to Tampa

Tampa's growing convention scene gets a bit bigger Sept. 26-28 when "science meets fiction" at the Grand Hyatt Tampa Bay for the inaugural Sci-Con. The main draw is actors from the Battlestar Galactica franchise: Richard Hatch (shown at left as Viper pilot Capt. Apollo in the 1978 original series; also terrorist/political schemer Tom Zarek in the 2003 reboot), Jack Stauffer (pilot Lt. Bojay in the original) and Nicki Clyne (deck crewman Cally Henderson Tyrol in the reboot). Also on the lineup: retired NASA astronaut Story Musgrave, actor Aron Eisenberg (Nog in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine) and Gainesville sci-fi author William Hatfield. Single-day tickets start at $20 for adults, $15 for children 11 to 15; weekend passes are $45 for adults, $30 children. For $125, a "gold membership" includes reserved front seating at all events, early entry, lots of Sci-Con swag and a toast with the stars. Autographed photos are $35-$40.
