Arthur Darvill (Rory from Doctor Who; Rip Hunter from DC’s Legends of Tomorrow) joins Intervention 7 in Maryland!

I am pleased to announce that this year Arthur Darvill (Rory from Doctor Who; Rip Hunter from DC’s Legends of Tomorrow) will be joining our already stellar line up of guests. Mr. Darvill will be here for Saturday and Sunday.

Intervention is unique in that with us you actually get to spend a good amount of time really meeting and conversing with each guest. Our convention’s family-friendly format is special because it offers the fans an extremely rare opportunity to meet him and our other guests in a non-stressful atmosphere.

We are celebrating the Star Trek 50th anniversary this year, but Doctor Who just celebrated their 50th. I thought it was only appropriate to bring it full circle with all of these fandoms that have touched our lives and made the world a better place.

Mr. Darvill joins our already stellar guest lineup that includes:

René Auberjonois — Odo, “Star Trek: Deep Space 9″

Juliet Landau — Drusilla, “Buffy the Vampire Slayer/Angel”

Thomas Dolby — Musician, composer, professor

Gigi Edgley – Chiana, “Farscape”

Dwight Schultz — Barclay, “Star Trek: TNG”; “Howling Mad” Murdock, “The A-Team”

Todd Haberkorn – Voice Actor: “Hetalia,” “Fairy Tail”; Actor: Spock, “Star Trek Continues”

Jon St. John — Voice actor: “Duke Nukem”

Robert Axelrod – Voice Actor: Lord Zedd, “Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers”

Pete Abrams – Sluggy Freelance webcomic

Time is almost up to get your VIP packages!

Have you bought your VIP packages for the con yet?

Our VIP packages serve a specific purpose. This is our fund raiser. Your purchase of these help us pay for the venue, supplies, and guests. It’s because of community support that we can make this event happen. Your purchase matters. It makes a difference. We don’t believe in taking money without giving, so we reward you with items that we’ve commissioned from local artists to thank you for your financial support.

Not only are you helping us, you are helping directly support local, small businesses.

The items for each level are print on demand. If you want a VIP level you need to pre-order. Levels 1 and 2 are the only levels available for purchase at the con.

Levels 3 and above shut off for purchase 2 weeks before the con and must be ordered online. The cut off day is September 2nd. Read below for details and purchase your registration or upgrade your existing registration here.

We are also pre-selling our regular con t-shirt. We will have very limited numbers of them at con, but it’s best to pre-order so that we can guarantee your size will be waiting for you.

Intervention is hitting the road one more time before our 2016 event — and we’re coming to see you in D.C. at Angelika Pop-Up‘s one-day sci-fi convention!

This mini sci-fi con is just one of the group’s many activities surrounding their showings of Star Trek Beyond, and will include local vendors like Fantom Comics and Riverby Books.

We at Intervention are psyched to be part of the Star Trek festivities during the franchise’s 50th anniversary, with guests including René Auberjonois, Dwight Schultz, David Gerrold, Todd Haberkorn of Star Trek Continues, and Robert Axelrod! We’ll also have lots of sci-fi-themed programming and meet-ups for Trek and beyond.

We can’t wait to meet fellow fans at the con! We’ll be chatting with attendees about both this con and our sister Doctor Who-themed event, (Re)Generation Who, as well as taking photos of any cool costumes we see to share on our social media. So be sure to come by and see us!

To find out more about the Angelika Pop-Up SciFi Convention and to RSVP, visit their Facebook events page.
