Europe’s largest Star Trek and science fiction convention, FedCon (short for Federation Convention) kicks off this off this Thursday, April 28 and runs through Sunday, May 1. Taking place this year at the Maritim Hotel in Düsseldorf, Germany, FedCon has been held in Germany each spring since 1992, attracting approximately 5,000 sci-fi and pop culture fans. Each year some of the biggest names in Star Trek, Battlestar Galactica, Star Wars, and other genre television shows are flown in to take part in the weekend’s festivities.
This year’s event has quite a guest list. Some of the stars appearing include Scott Bakula, Marina Sirtis, Wil Wheaton, Richard Dean Anderson, Robert Duncan McNeill, Garrett Wang, Dirk Benedict, and many more.
Along with this weekend’s Anaheim Comic Con coverage, we’ll have news coming out of FedCon 2011, with updates from our friends at TrekRadio.

Some good guests, but the amount/level of guests seems down a bit from years past.
