VegasCon09: Wednesday Pre-show and Meet-up Report & Photos

The official Star Trek Convention in Las Vegas kicks off today, with fans streaming into the Las Vegas Hilton on Wednesday. Below are photos from some of the set-up and prelim work, plus pictures from the Wednesday night meet-up, which included some celebrity guests.




The calm before the storm
Here are some shots from around the Hilton from Wednesday as things were being set up (note some photos are taken with iPhone).



Wednesday night, TrekCast and DVD Geeks held a meet-up/tweet-up at the SpaceQuest bar in the Hilton, outside the former Star Trek: The Experience. It was a lot of fun and some celebs even showed up, including Chase Masterson, Rod Roddenberry and Jonathan Frakes.



Look for more VegasCon09 coverage soon

This is so much fun, thanks for keeping us updated. Wish I was there. Maybe someday I can do a convention and do a parody concert. That would rock.
