As geeks, so many of the stories we love are based in science. Science Fiction has been good at predicting the future, because the people who created it were interested in real science, and created stories that envisioned the future it suggested.

As we've crafted the programming for Starbase Indy this year, we've kept that fascination in mind. We've found presenters who are passionate about interesting things, and we've asked those people to come share what they know. We've kept some of your favorites from prior years -- but also found a bunch of new people who haven't presented before to come in and give us new perspectives on the world we share.
