CONvergence is an annual convention for fans of Science Fiction and Fantasy in all media: a 4-day event with more than 6,000 members, and the premiere event of our kind in the upper mid-west.
Set on a grand stage of sociopolitical intrigue, melodrama, and conflict, space operas have woven worlds of fantastic adventure and romance to capture our imaginations since the 1930’s. CONvergence 2017: To Infinity & Beyond is a celebration of all things space opera. Whether the hero is fated to a mythic destiny through blood or prophecy, or simply an average galactic citizen caught up in incredible circumstance, their adventures satisfy our hunger for the optimistic triumph of the individual and the common good.
Whether on film, small screen, or page, the likes of Star Wars, The Last Starfighter, The Fifth Element, Captain Harlock, Firefly, The Expanse, John Carter of Mars, Skylawk of Space, Honor Harrington, and so many more take you on grand, romantic adventures. Set against the backdrop of space and futuristic technology, space opera offers us universes that feel real, fantastic, and of mythic proportion for struggles that promise everything in your wildest dreams.
