About Warp 2006

Trekkers Norway are proud to present WARP 2006 - the first Norwegian Star Trek Convention featuring actors and other celebrities connected with the series. The convention will take place in the oil capital of Norway - Stavanger. Closed for polluting and noisy cars, and situated only minutes from some of our most beautiful fjords and mountains, the town is a highlight by it self. Our guests will be Robert Picardo (The doctor from Voyager), Ethan Phillips (Neelix from Voyager), and Barbara Adams (from "Trekkies 1 & 2"). In addition Roger Nygard (producer of "Trekkies 1 & 2") and Denise Crosby (Tasha Yar from TNG) are invited to start filming for "Trekkies 3".

The convention will take place in two of the most popular facilities in town; The culture house Sxlvberget, situated in the very heart of town, and Folken - the students own concert house and cafeteria, situated only five minutes by foot from Sxlvberget. Part of the Convention will be open for everyone to enjoy and free of charge, while other activities are opened for everyone buying a ticket. In addition to this all guests buying a convention ticket before May 2006 will be invited to join the actors at a breakfast meeting closed to people in general, as well as securing a seat at the stage interviews with the actors.

The program will be developed during the spring of 2005 and the fall of 2006 and may be subject to changes. Notice that the contracts we have with the actors are tentative and subject to change if the actors should get caught up in a new film. Should this occur, all tickets will be refundable. The convention will still take place with Barbara Adams as guest, and with everyone getting their chance at participating in "Trekkies 3". These pages will be in English only and will continue to develop over the next months. Make sure to bookmark it and visit it at least once a week.
