There is an impressive lineup this year to celebrate Star Trek’s 45th anniversary with big stars, lots of special events and even some TrekMovie.com hosted fan panels.

Vegas Baby: Big Stars + Big Events + TrekMovie panels + more
For 2011 Creation is celebrating the 45th anniversary of Star Trek at the big Star Trek con in Vegas. This year the con, which runs August 11-14, is in a new location (the Rio) and the guest lineup is very impressive, including Star Trek stars William Shatner, Leonard Nimoy, Sir Patrick Stewart, Brent Spiner, Tim Russ, Kate Mulgrew, Connor Trinneer, Dominic Keating, Nana Visitor, Terry Farrell, and many more. There is also an impressive list of guest star actors, including John DeLancie, David Warner, James Darren, Robin Curtis, Clint Howard (Tranya!), and many more.
The weekend will include some special moments, including Shatner and Stewart on stage together, a concert by James Darren, a "Rat Pack" performance (with Grodenchik, Armstrong, Combs, Biggs and Shimerman), Nimoy Photography Seminar, Combs performing Poe, Poetry reading by Visitor and Auberjonois, another attempt to set the record of most Trekkies in costume and more including nightly parties.
And if that isn’t enough for you, I will be hosting a series of fan panels (one each day), including one discussing the upcoming Star Trek sequel.
