Sci-Fi Zone

A proposed science fiction media discussion group to be based in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. It was announced at the Closing Ceremony of Con 80 in 2017. Its first event was to be held in 2018.

As with panels at Con 80, scheduled discussions were to be face-to-face rather than online, but whereas the convention excluded fantasy, the plan for the discussion group was to include it, but exclude presentations focusing upon discussion of shows already catered for by clubs active in Melbourne. (For Star Wars there's Star Walking; for Star Trek, Austrek; for Doctor Who, the Doctor Who Club of Victoria; and for Firefly and Serenity, the New Melbourne Browncoats.)

At the end of August 2018, it was announced that there would indeed be a Sci-Fi Zone, but that it would not be as originally envisaged.
