Welcome to Dirk Benedict Central – the only OFFICIAL website for news and information about Dirk Benedict.  Learn where and when he will next appear, any upcoming projects, etc.

We also talk about his many roles (including Starbuck and the Faceman), about Macrobiotics – basically all things Dirk Benedict, and more; we are a community of friends, people who initially came together to celebrate Dirk, his career, and his books, but who discovered that we have much more in common.

So if you’d like to join us on our members-only forum (Dirk’s Works), or just want to see what’s coming up for Dirk, take a look back at his previous work, or any combination thereof, we bid you a warm welcome and hope you enjoy, and come back often!

John Pickard, Webmaster

“There is a divine moment in our lives when we become One. It is called pro-creation and it is reborn continually and forever in the future we call children.
They are our destiny and we are theirs. The extent to which we fail as parents… we fail as God’s Children.”

Dirk Benedict
Actor, Author, Director, Woodchopper, Dad


A few items we need you to know:

**1/8/2021: Sorry to have to pass this along, but we just received word that Pensacon has been postponed and won’t be held in February as planned. See the link on the “Upcoming Appearances” page for their full statement.


**A sign of the times: an embrace of technology to reach out and touch people – virtually – when we can’t be together. Hat’s off to event organizers who have embraced the same tech as businesses have when remote meetings are necessary…

January 2, 2021 at 4:00 p.m. Eastern, Dirk will participate in a GalaxyCon virtual event. Check out the “Upcoming Appearances” page for a link, which includes registering for the *FREE* Q&A!


**Another sign that something resembling normalcy is on the horizon is another convention appearance has been booked. If COVID and several government agencies allow…

Dirk has signed on to the Wales Comic Con next April. A link to their website are included in the info on the “Upcoming Appearances” page, linked above.

So – all you European Dirk Benedict fans – are you planning to go?


**Even the best of intentions will go awry…

Thanks to the hundreds – perhaps thousands – maybe millions – of spambots, unscrupulous advertisers, malware producers, sex-trade purveyors, and other evil, compassionless, troll-like dregs of humanity, our “Contact Us” function has inundated me with a growing daily number of unwanted spam messages, which is overwhelming the legitimate contacts we get through that function.

I have, therefore, turned it off until such time as I can find a system that is less vulnerable to such hijacking.

I have a stack of messages to go through, so please bear with me. In the meantime…

!! We presently do not have a mechanism to provide autographed photos upon request. Such things are in future plans, but are not realizable at the moment. Please don’t expect a response to such requests – yet.

!! I genuinely enjoy passing along to Dirk how much his fans love and appreciate him, but under the circumstances if you don’t mind holding those expressions for the moment, I will be grateful.

!! If you are organizing an event you would like Dirk to attend as a guest, please email me at webmaster @ this domain with your details, and I’ll get it into the right hands.

I do appreciate your understanding, and hope you enjoy looking through our site.
