Have you ever wondered what a Star Trek convention is like? Have you ever in your sci-fi closet mind wished you could go to one? I’ve decided to take you along with me to Creation Entertainment’s annual con in Las Vegas. This is my 14th year!
It starts slow, meeting old friends, getting situated in my hotel room, going through the massive schedule of events so I don’t miss anything.
Later today I will register and receive my package of swag for buying the expensive gold level ticket. My seat is in the second row from the stage and I look forward to sending you some great pictures. Here are some from last year I’ll be getting autographed this time.
Sir Patrick Stewart and (most of) the Next Generation gang will be here to celebrate their 30th anniversary. Bill Shatner and Kate Mulgrew, of course. A special treat will be astronaut Dr Mae Jemison appearing with her mentor Nichelle Nichols. Last count there were to be 112 guest stars.
I’m writing this on my phone, a new experience for me but so far so good. So join me in the coming week to celebrate the diversity that is Star Trek.
Live long and prosper.
