Theme

In July 2316, the Treaty of Titan officially ended hostilities between the Owaan and humankind. The treaty was signed here on Crescent Station and to celebrate this momentous occasion, we  honor and celebrate this peace accord with our annual Red Carpet Affair.

Please join us on Friday evening at 8:00 PM in Secondary Assembly (Empire Ballroom B-D) for Crescent Station’s Annual Red Carpet Affair. Since the signing of the treaty, Crescent Station has remained an enduring symbol of our commitment to encouraging progress, creating opportunity, and fostering mutual respect and understanding throughout the galaxy. In celebration of the treaty’s anniversary, we honor those who have carried forward our finest tradition of service, and we rededicate ourselves to fulfilling the dream and continuing the work of all those who aspire to and yearn for peace. Celebrate, with us, this landmark in our history and peace in our worlds.

Our house special, celestial cocktails (non-alcoholic), will also be available for purchase.  In honor of the gala which initially celebrated the signing of the Treaty of Titan, this anniversary celebration is a semi-formal event. Please see our dress code for guidelines.

Our honored musical ambassadors, Mon Negros Productions, will be providing music and atmosphere for this event.

MNP

Knowing the future would still need the funk, the world governments cryogenically froze the dopest entertainers of the 21st century to be thawed out when the groove was needed.  The Demolition DJs known as MNP have been recruited from the past to protect the future!  Antonius and Evanuel return to bring jams of future’s past to Crescent Station to keep the party going for generations to come!”

7ezovccjPlease remember that this is a FORMAL/SEMI-FORMAL Cosplay-optional event. The “regular, everyday” cosplay outfit will not be allowed. For example: Master Roshi in his beach shirt, shoes and sandals would not be allowed; however, the dress suit he wore to go to town would be. The outfit must be considered formal according to the above guidelines.
