For a while there it looked like Contamination was dead, and maybe it was. But the convention devoted to horror, sci-fi and pop culture has risen to stalk the land once again. The Return of Contamination features a dealers' room, film screenings, a midnight seance and a host of special guest stars who will sign autographs and pose for pictures. Most of the surviving cast of the original Battlestar Galactica (Dirk Benedict, Richard Hatch, Herbert Jefferson, Jr., Annie Lockhart and Jack Stauffer) is scheduled to attend, as are stuntman Jim Winburn and porn star Seka. The con is on from 4 to 9 p.m. Friday, 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday (June 17 to 19) at the Stratford Inn (800 South Highway Drive, Fenton; www.con-tamination.com). Tickets are $15 to $65.
