Semi-Final Program Grid for Christopher Weuve

This is the Semi-Final program schedule. Christopher Weuve may or may not actually be on these items, but probably will. However, due to circumstances beyond our control, modifications to the program can occur throughout the convention.

Friday 9:00 pm: Naval Metaphors (Ends at: 9:55 pm)
Panelists: Christopher Weuve (M)
Space is not the ocean, so why is it a "space navy?" With the exception of Stargate SG-1, science fiction space forces seem to be based on navies. Why is “Starfleet” a fleet? This talks looks at different models of naval warfare (air, surface, and subsurface), both historically and in modern terms, and examines how well they fit in a science fiction context.
Saturday 12:00 pm: Space Wars (Ends at: 12:55 pm)
Panelists: Catherine Asaro, Edward M. Lerner, Jamie Todd Rubin, Janine Spendlove, Christopher Weuve (M)
How would it be waged and why? Why would you want to go to war with a planet that takes 30 years to get to? What books have the best space wars?
Saturday 4:00 pm: Aircraft Carriers In Space! (Ends at: 4:55 pm)
Panelists: Christopher Weuve (M)
Aircraft carriers are cool. Aircraft carriers in space are even more cool -- even if they might not make sense. This talk explores aircraft carriers in fiction and reality.
Sunday 1:00 pm: From Valley Forge to Ender's Battle School (Ends at: 1:55 pm)
Panelists: Catherine Asaro, Charles E. Gannon, John G. Hemry, Brian Shaw (M), Christopher Weuve
The changing nature of training soldiers. In the past it was intense and physical. How is it different today and what will it be like in the future?
Sunday 2:00 pm: Is SF/Fantasy too Big for TV (Ends at: 2:55 pm)
Panelists: Eric Choi, Hildy Silverman, Elaine Stiles (M), Christopher Weuve
Science Fiction and Fantasy dominate videogames and top movies, so why so little love on tv? Or is this changing?
