ben browder final frelling farscape con 2011After twelve years and four 'Final Frelling' Farscape conventions, Creation Entertainment's annual Farscape Convention is no more.

It will, however, be part of their Grand Slam convention next year that will include many other shows in addition to Farscape.

This year Ben surprised the audience by introducing what he called his two 'projects' of 14 and 18 years. Upon that announcement, he brought on stage his 14-year-old son Milo and 18-year-old daughter Imogen. His wife Francesca also joined them. It was a Farscape farewell gift from the Browder family to their Farscape family as Ben was always guarded and protective of his children's privacy.

In addition to his surprise, Ben gave the crowd one of his famous Q & A's and a heartfelt speech about family, friends, those who left this world and those who joined it during the years of the conventions. There were a lot of tears and cheers throughout.

I was lucky to be one of the many people at the final Farscape Con and will remember it fondly not only for the joy of seeing the talented actors, producers, writers and creators but also for seeing the many friends I have made over the course of my love of Farscape.

Until we all meet again, can I get a 'Hell Yeah!"?
