2016 Out of this World Festival Announced

Star Base Columbus is pleased to announce that we will once again host the Out of this World Festival. The date is Saturday, May 21 from 12:00 - 7:00 PM. In years past the event coincided with Free Comic Book Day, but this year there is a conflict with Marcon and Free Comic Book Day falling on the same weekend so we can't hold it then, as we will be attending Marcon. This year's theme is the '50th Anniversary of Star Trek', but as always, sci-fi in any and all forms will be represented. We are dedicating this year's festival to Steve Harper, Commanding Officer of the USS Columbus, who passed away unexpectedly in October. If there are any groups and/or individuals interested in exhibiting or performing please contact Star Base at 614-895-7827. Star tuned here and on our website for updates on activities and guests for this event.

Highlights for 2016

Happy New Year to All!

This year will be a bittersweet one for Star Base Columbus.  We're excited to be celebrating a new Star Wars movie and the 50th anniversary of our beloved Star Trek.  Who ever would have thought the Trek phenomenon would span 5 decades ( and more to come with a new series in 2017!)

Sadly, this will be the last year for Star Base Columbus, as we know it, in its present incarnation because the current owner is retiring at the end of this year.  As yet, we don't know what our fate will be.  We're hoping there will be a new store to replace the old.  Some things are going on behind the scenes but no comments can be made at this time.  We can only keep our fingers crossed and hope for the best.

Thanks to all of you who have supported us over the past 23 years.  It's been a great ride and we wouldn't still be here without the support of our loyal fans/customers.  We welcome everyone to come and visit often during the course of this year...if you haven't gotten your photo op in our Captain's chair this is your chance.

The crew of Star Base wishes one and all a Happy, Healthy and Prosperous New Year.

Live Long and Prosper and May the Force be with you!
