Always a favorite at any CCI event, we bring you the 16th annual Starship Smackdown live from WonderCon 2017. This year a team of Grups (wise/older) vs Millennials (hip/younger) debate the age old question, WHAT STARSHIP WILL WIN?! Built like fantasy football for nerds, this bracketed space battle is filled with hilarity and expert opinions.
Sound awesome? IT IS! Scroll down to the bottom for the Smackdown audio!
Panelists this year included Team Grup’s Kay Reindl, Christian Gossett, Daren Dochterman, Steven Melching, Robert Meyer Burnett, and Ashley E. Miller while Team Millennial had JPL’s Bobak Ferdowsi and Prashanth Pandian, GEEK Magazine editor Nikki Griffin, and new comer Isaac Muldoon. The Sunday panel was hosted by Mark A. Altman and new apprentice Kate!
Our very own Editor in Chief (myself) was the scorekeeper for Smackdown, dressed as Princess Leia. As per usual, I laughed so hard I cried. We’ll add more photos of the panel as we get them edited from one of our contributing photographers, Bill Watters.
Pretty much our #1 do not miss panel at every WonderCon and SDCC. Mark your calendars now for Sunday at San Diego!
