MINI-BLOG: THE STAR TREK CONVENTION

IMG_20170801_060002022

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.

About Mollie Hunt

I am the crazy cat lady, animal shelter volunteer, Trekkie, and mystery writer. I live in the rainy Pacific Northwest and will watch any TV show or movie filmed here. Even though I am of a goodly age (sixty-something) I go to Star Trek conventions in costume and am not afraid to be by myself. I enjoy my life in the cat lane. Words to live by: Spay and neuter; Live long and prosper; Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can and the wisdom to know the difference.

    My human Dad is a Star Trek fan, but he hasn’t been to a convention like that. He & Mom did go to a local Comicon convention and they had a great time. In the history of the Star Trek franchise did a kitty cat ever appear in an episode? Just wonder purring, Miss Mollie. Tee hee hee.

      There are 3 instances of kitties in Star Trek, 2 in the original series, and in Next Generation, the character Data had a cat for several seasons. I plan to do a blog post about them when I get home.
