In honor of the 50th anniversary of Star Trek, MediaWest*Con 36's four day mission is to seek out those SF futures past that never quite became reality, to geek out and breathe new life into classic stories, new tribble-ations. So join us as we return to tomorrow for all our yesterdays and yesteryears where tomorrow is yesterday, and boldy go where Nomad has gone before!

MediaWest*Con 36 - Return To Tomorrow - May 27-30, 2016

MediaWest*Con
is the definitive gathering of SF/Media fandom, held each Memorial Day Weekend in Lansing Michigan.  MediaWest*Con is sponsored by T’Kuhtian Press as a celebration of the diversity of SF/Media fandom, run by fans, for fans, and is staffed entirely by volunteers. 

MediaWest*Con traditionally features the Art Show and Auction, Fanzine Reading Room. Fannish Videos, Masquerade, Dealers’ Room, Game Room, SF/Media Fan Fund, Fan Quality Awards, a Con Suite (AKA Hospitality Suite) and a Party Suite, and many, many panels on a wide variety of topics representing many areas of interest.  Programming is determined by member input and participation; a form for suggesting topics will be included in a future Progress Report.  Programming is intended for an adult audience;  we do not censor adult themes in panel topics or in the Art Show.  We have no official guests.  The name MediaWest*Con is a service mark of MediaWest*Con.
