Denise Crosby special guest at Galaxy Fest

ROSWELL — Denise Crosby, who created the role of Lt. Tasha Yar in Star Trek: The Next Generation, will be a featured celebrity guest at the 2012 Roswell Galaxy Fest.
The Galaxy Fest, centered around the International UFO Museum and Research Center, will run June 29-July 2.
Denise Crosby as Lt. Tasha Yar
in Star Trek: The Next Generation
Playing Tasha Yar was a big career break for Crosby. Though not a huge role, the character allowed Crosby to build a sizable fan base that exists to this day. In 1988, she left the program due to the diminishing size of her role, but returned as a guest star in the early 1990s.
In 1989, she played the mother of a dead toddler who was brought back to life through an ancient curse in Stephen King’s horror Pet Sematary novel film adaptation.
Remaining in the horror genre, Crosby played a similar role of a mother who discovers her young daughter’s doll is evil in the Child’s Play (1988) clone Dolly Dearest (1991).

In the 1990s, she worked consistently, appearing in a TV series in 1993, and made numerous guest appearances, including a couple of episodes of the raunchy cable series Red Shoe Diaries (1992) (TV), which were subsequently released on video. There were also roles in Relative Fear (1995), Mutant Species (1995), Dream Man (1995) and Executive Power (1997).
More high-profile work arrived in the form of a small role in Jackie Brown (1997), playing a public defender, and a sizable part as a pregnant mother in the hit disaster movie Deep Impact (1998). She gained recognition as a Star Trek fan by producing and presenting Trekkies (1997) and its 2004 sequel.

Since 2000, Denise has appeared on TV in guest roles on The X-Files (1993), JAG (1995), The Agency (2001), Threat Matrix (2003), Eyes (2005) and Dexter (2006). She acted in the award-winning short film The Bus Stops Here (2003), had a leading role in the western/horror indie film Legend of the Phantom Rider (2002) and has recently appeared in a horror film by legendary genre director Tobe Hooper, Mortuary (2005).
Best known for her Star Trek days, Denise embraces her fans often at conventions and appeared opposite her husband Ken Sylk in Ripple Effect (2007).

Geoologist researcher to speak at Galaxy Fest

ROSWELL — Researcher Frank Kimbler, assistant professor of earth science at New Mexico Military Institute (NMMI), is one of the featured speakers at the 2012 Roswell Galaxy Fest.
Frank Kimbler
Though a relatively new researcher in the field of UFO studies, he made some interesting discoveries.
He has worked as a professional geologist for more than 30 years and has taught school for almost half of that time. He has worked as an oceanographer for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and as a mining engineer for the State of Arizona.
Kimbler moved to New Mexico in 2009 after accepting a teaching position at NMMI in Roswell.
Shortly after moving to Roswell he took a keen interest in the story behind the Roswell UFO incident. His research has resulted in the discovery of a number of physical artifacts from the debris field area, including metallic fragments, plastic, metallic buttons and a World War II-era, .50-caliber round.
Kimbler’s research has been featured on a number of Internet talk shows and two upcoming National Geographic television programs about UFOs. He does not like secrets and is dedicated to discovering answers and using good science.

David Rudiak a featured speaker at Galaxy Fest

Dr. David Rudiak will be a featured speaker at the 2012 Roswell Galaxy Fest, centered around the International UFO Museum and Research Center.
The Galaxy Fest begins Friday, June 29, and runs through Monday, July 2.
Rudiak will provide updates on his new research and provide insights on Gen. Roger Ramey’s memo.
Besides attending the Roswell Festival, at which he was first a speaker in 2009, he also has been a speaker at the Aztec and Ozark UFO conferences. In Ufology, his main area of expertise is the alleged Roswell saucer crash of 1947, which he has been studying since 1994.
Rudiak is perhaps best known for his work on reading the telex photographed in Gen. Ramey’s hand as general tried to debunk the Roswell crash as a weather balloon. Ramey’s memo mentions “the victims of the wreck” and shipping something “in the disc,” words and phrases which he and others consider to be smoking-gun proof that a saucer crash really occurred.
His work on Ramey’s memo was first publicly presented on a 2002 Sci Fi Channel special on Roswell and another TV Roswell documentary by NBC Television in 2007.
In addition, Rudiak has done extensive research on other facets of the Roswell case, such as compiling the largest newspaper collection of how the story was reported at the time and how the military ran a campaign afterward to debunk Roswell and the newly appeared flying saucers seen all over the country.
He has compiled a 60-page list of anomalous crash debris descriptions from many Roswell military and civilian witnesses. His research also has be used to debunk the Air Force's modern Mogul balloon “explanation.”
Rudiak has a Bachelor’s in Physics and a Doctor of Optometry from the University of California, Berkeley, as well as graduate training in biophysics and neurophysiology.
He has done research and published scientific papers on brain wave recording to visual stimuli and visual stimulation with magnetic brain stimulators. He has used this scientific research background to debunk claims that alien abduction reports are the result of weak Earth magnetic fields causing hallucinations in the brain.
Many affidavits and essays on key Roswell witnesses can be found on Rudiak’s website. He also has dug into and done write-ups on the 1965 Kecksburg and 1967 Shag Harbor UFO crashes and the 1965 Socorro UFO landing.
Other extensive research has been done on the 1994 Nevada Nellis Range UFO and a 1950 UFO mass sighting over California and Nevada. This and hundreds of pages of other research can be found at his website:
