It was a hard decision, but this is my final year for the Las Vegas con. I began this journey with Creation Entertainment in 2003, their 2nd con in Vegas. I have amazing memories, a room full of autographs, portfolios full of pictures. I have met wonderful people, some of whom will be friends for life. I’ve laughed, cried, and learned things I didn’t know I needed to learn. I will miss this safe, strange, diverse, inclusive, kind, hopeful environment. I miss it already.
I hope you enjoyed my brief peek into a Star Trek convention. The next time someone makes comments about trekkies, you will have an understanding they may lack, that Star Trek goes far beyond a TV show to a vision of a better world.
Live long and prosper.
