The Constellation Awards and Polaris Co-Present: A StarlostMini-Reunion (SATURDAY – 2PM – KING CITY CONFERENCE ROOM)
In 1973, the CTV network aired Canada’s second ever science fiction television series, The Starlost. Taking place on a huge multi-generational spaceship called “The Ark” which had gone off course, the series followed the adventures of the descendants of the original crew and colonists, many of whom are unaware that they are living aboard a giant ship. The series ran for only 16 episodes, but CTV re-ran it for many years, and it has been the discussion topic at several Canadian conventions ever since.
Now, almost 40 year later, The Constellation Awards and Polaris are pleased to bring you a reunion of two of the main actors from the series. Gay Rowan (Rachel) and Robin Ward (Garth) will both be appearing at the Constellation Awards as presenters. Then, the two will be appearing at a Polaris Discussion entitled “The Starlost: Looking Back,” which will be followed by a brief autograph session. If you remember this Canadian sci-fi series fondly, don’t miss this rare chance to meet these two actors! Check your pocket programme on arrival for confirmation of times and locations.
