For the most part, the closest Lake Tahoe gets to science fiction is Tahoe Tessie.

Signed on for the convention, are Nicki Clyne of “Battlestar Galactica,” Gigi Edgley of “Farscape,” Michele Specht of the Web series “Star Trek Continues” and Diane Franklin, who appeared in “Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure.”

Steam House Entertainment is moving its convention from Modesto to Lake Tahoe, according to director Joe Cahill.

“The hottest up-and-coming designers, and an exclusive slice of the Geek fashionable elite” are in store for convention goers, Cahill said. “Our mission of multicultural arts promotion, ethnic diversity, and positive image remain strong, and we are proud to bring our event to Lake Tahoe.”

Open calls for volunteers and staff will take place in early August. Anyone interested in getting involved as a sponsor, designer, member of the press, or volunteer should contact
