The Omaha Science Fiction Education Society's fourth-ever science-fiction and fantasy festival, OSFest 4.0, entertains fans with more than 100 scheduled events and discussions, and interactions with a distinguished roster of special guests. Throughout the weekend, volunteer OSFest staff moderate readings by established or emerging authors, such as convention guest of honor and New York Times bestselling author David Weber, encouraging attendees to ask questions and debate which author is in fact a fully reanimated Jules Verne. Alternately, expert panels discuss divisive topics such as Pirates vs. Ninjas, Anime, Which Superhero Was Most Ticklish, and Doctor Who, while workshops help attendees design Klingon garb, build models, and forge chainmail. Nesting within the larger festival, the 2011 OSFest Independent Film Festival also screens dozens of independently produced features and shorts for convention-goers, with titles as enticing as Motor Home from Hell, Why Am I in a Box?, and Cave Women on Mars.

Flight! Nebraska's well-groomed fleet of Piper aircrafts can accommodate one licensed pilot, one aspiring altitude seeker, and two wide-eyed guests. During a 30-minute scenic flight tour, one of Flight! Nebraska's experienced instructors will regale passengers with aviation lore as he or she guides the plane through the wild blue yonder like a noble bald eagle or a very lost tiger shark. The discovery flight allows adventurous aviatrixes who receive 30 minutes of on-the-ground instruction to taste the excitement of self-guided volitation when they take the wheel, masterfully gliding the sky buggy through the air, leaving their guests white-knuckled but duly impressed.

With machines set up in rows to encourage competition, many ordinary gyms cater to men's bodies and psychology, right down to the urinals that were "accidentally" installed in the women's locker room. At Curves, you'll move around a circuit of hydraulic-resistance machines that have been designed to work with women's bodies and promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and deal with arthritis. An experienced trainer is always nearby to help manage your machine-maneuvering and your muscle-making. Instead of fiddling with weight stacks and losing your momentum, the hydraulic machines use your body weight and fitness level to create resistance that matches your abilities, decreasing the risk of soreness or injury. Because traditional lift-and-lower motions create bulky muscles, each machine uses push-and-pull motions to create toned, lean muscles perfect for crushing a grapefruit without looking like you can.

At the extensively remodeled Nebraska Elite Sports and Fitness facility, exercisers work toward their health goals across more than 100,000 square feet of fitness equipment and tennis, squash, volleyball, and basketball courts. Patrons swim in a naturally lit, 75-foot indoor pool, and listen to music or watch one of the large flat-screen TVs as they increase their heart rates in the cardio area. After a personal-training session or group exercise class such as Vinyasa yoga, Spinning, or Zumba, guests relax or mingle with vacationing rubber duckies in the jacuzzi.

The center also offers a number of opportunities for burgeoning athletes, including Youth 2 Elite, a performance-enhancement program directed by Andrew Wehrli. The experienced volleyball coach is certified in strength and conditioning by multiple national organizations and is currently pursuing a doctorate in sports psychology.
