An Out-of-This-World Gathering

November 14, 1996|LAURIE K. SCHENDEN

"I get off on the excitement from the fans at these conventions," says Bruce Boxleitner, who plays Cmdr. John Sheridan on "Babylon 5." "Everything else you do with TV, you never really get feedback." Boxleitner is sure to get plenty of feedback this weekend at the "Star Trek: The Next Generation" and "Babylon 5" convention in Pasadena. He will be joined by "Babylon 5" creator J. Michael Straczynski and co-stars Andreas Katsulas, Bill Mumy and others.

Fans will have a chance to ask questions, and some cast members will sign autographs.

"The fans are very loyal," Boxleitner says, adding with a laugh: "They remember every bloody line."

Cast members of "Star Trek: The Next Generation" also are scheduled to attend, including Jonathan Frakes, Wil Wheaton, Marina Sirtis and Denise Crosby, along with Majel Barrett Rodenberry, the widow of "Star Trek" creator Gene Rodenberry. Memorabilia from both futuristic series are featured both days.

Pasadena Center, 300 E. Green St., Pasadena. Saturday-Sunday, 11 a.m.-6 p.m. Cost is $32 through Ticketmaster, $40 at the door, per day; ages 7-12, $15. (818) 409-0960.
