Star Trek conventions used to take place all over the country, and still do to a lesser extent. But if you want one place where all your favorite stars will be appearing under one roof, the yearly Star Trek extravaganza that is held in Nevada simply cannot be beat.
This year’s edition is being held July 31 through August 4 at the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino and promises another weekend of big announcements, star sightings and fun to be had by all who attend.
Who knows. Could we maybe get out first look at a full trailer for Star Trek: Picard this year? One can hope.
The guest list for Star Trek Las Vegas 2019 has been growing by the day and already includes an impressive array of stars from all the various eras of Star Trek. It includes three captains, (Kirk, Janeway and Pike) stars from every Star Trek television series and more guest stars that you can count.
And the list got got a bit longer.
Shazad Latif (Ash Tyler), Jayne Brook (Vice Admiral Katrina Cornwell) Mary Chieffo (L’Rell) and Kenneth Mitchell (Kol/Tenavik) will be joining the members of the Discovery cast who are already attending. In addition, Jadzia Dax herself, Terry Farrell will also be there, which should be a real thrill for all the DS9 fans out there.
They have also announced that over two dozen noted proffessors and scientists will be presenting over 20 panels under the titles Science of Trek and Teaching with Trek. They will put Star Trek under the microscope and look at it from angles such as law, science, diversity and storytelling.
