Actor, activist and Eisner winner George Takei headlines the honors at this year’s Eagle-Con, a virtual sci-fi and fantasy conference hosted by Cal State LA and the Art Directors Guild.

This year’s Eagle-Con theme, “Possibilities Imagined Here,” celebrates diversity and addresses accessibility, underrepresentation and pushing boundaries in science fiction and fantasy genres over a series of three days, March 11-13.

Takei (Star Trek, They Called Us Enemy) joins celebrated production designer Wynn Thomas (Mars Attacks!, Hidden Figures) and best-selling author Nnedi Okorafor (the Binti trilogy, Black Panther: Long Live the King) as this year’s awardees. They have long been barrier breakers for other writers and artists, building impressively varied careers that have impacted millions.

Takei will be honored with the Prism Award for outstanding contributions to diversity in science fiction and fantasy across media on March 12, Thomas will be presented the Imaginator Award for wondrous achievement in visual conceptualization on March 13 and Okorafor will receive the Octavia E. Butler Memorial Award on March 11.

This year’s free event also features an online exhibition spotlighting the work of Art Directors Guild members including the work of Imaginator Award honoree Wynn Thomas, with drawings from movies such as Mars Attacks!, Hidden Figures and Get Smart.

Eagle-Con is co-founded by the College of Arts and Letters and the University-Student Union at Cal State LA and the Art Directors Guild. Together they work to educate the students of Cal State LA and members of the Greater Los Angeles community about the history, impact and continued necessity of the contributions of women, BIPOC, the LGBTQIA-identified, the differently abled and the variously aged to the science fiction and fantasy genres.
