Star Trek Convention...William Shatner & Leonard Nimoy slated to appear! Beam us up at the Rio in Vegas!
Is it that time again?
Another Star Trek Convention has descended in our midst and landed smack dab in the middle of the oh-so-trendy (and festive gay-friendly) Rio Hotel in the desert oasis.
The four-day event - which kicked-off today - is sure to dazzle Trekkie fans (and tourists alike) this year!
A gala celebration featuring James Darren in concert on Saturday night.
Notable high-profile celebs - from this galaxy and beyond - are also slated to mix-and-mingle with sentient beings who snapped up tickets at $40 a pop for the privilege of being "this-close" to their favorite Sci-Fi fantasy heroes.
For instance, Leonard Nimoy (Dr. Spock) will grace the terrain on Saturday, while William Shatner (Captain Kirk) and Patrick Stewart (Captain Picard) are sure to be mobbed on Sunday when they stride through the packed house with intergalactic greetings.
Actually, more than 70 stars from the original series and its spinoffs will appear at the event.Of course, there will also be dozens of eye-catching vendors booths to high-tail it to, in the event you're in seeking out a rare-and-beautiful keepsake to trek home with.
Organizers are also hoping to break a record for the most costumed Trekkies in a single place.
The count will be held Saturday at 4:15 p.m.
Show up in your Milky-way best, eh?
See 'ya there!
