Dragon Con: A Violent Delight of Westworld Cosplay

There were many guesses as to what “the costume” of Dragon Con was going to be this year, and almost no one picked Westworld.

Dragon Con: ‘Orville’ Cosplay Crew Invades Star Trek 10 Forward Party

There is an ongoing joke that somehow, FOX series The Orville is an official part of the Star Trek universe.
