If you don’t know, the biggest Star Trek convention of the year is always the Creation Star Trek Convention in Las Vegas at the Las Vegas Hilton, which this year happens August 6-10. Of course the Las Vegas Hilton is home to the Star Trek Experience, and so it is a fitting home. The Star Trek Prop, Costume and Auction Forum group will once again be there with a display of Star Trek props and costumes, and we would love to meet any of you that are coming.
General admission tickets are $ 119, and I think you get your money’s worth as that is less than $ 30 a day. With all the star, dealers and such, it will be the best Star Trek event you attend all year. There are also packages that get you better seats for the star talks.
There are, of course, autograph sessions, and you can buy your tickets online. What is even cooler (as I don’t collect autographs) is the ability to have your photograph taken with the stars. I bought a ticket for a photo with Shatner and Nimoy as well as DS9 stars Avery Brooks, Penny Johnson and Ciroc Lofton last year. The Shatner/Nimoy wasn’t much fun, they don’t even acknowledge you are there! But the “Sisko Family” was AWESOME! Each of them shook my hand and said hi, they had huge smiles on their faces and they were just so much fun.
As always, there is more information on the Star Trek Prop, Costume and Auction Forum.
See you in Vegas!
