1. Starfleet's Finest - August 9, 2011

Argh!! I wish I could be there, it looks amazing!!!

2. Starfleet's Finest - August 9, 2011

I was so close to getting tickets but then I got the whole “you-can’t-miss-your-only-sister’s-wedding-for-a-Star-Trek-convention” lecutre. Honestly, I think my family’s priorities are majorly screwed up…

3. Nebraska Dave West - August 9, 2011

I will be there as both a fan, and as a correspondent from Main Event Network. I am looking forward to this event, and hope to be doing some live broadcasting on Friday from just outside the convention. I’m looking forward to meeting folks from when I am there!

4. bradley1701 - August 9, 2011

I fly to Vegas tomorrow…so excited!!

Just a correction, Natalija posted today on Facebook that she had to cancel as she is doing some work in NYC (with Al Pacino and Dame Helen Mirren). Sad! Bularian canapes on ice until next year!

5. Quark - August 9, 2011

I’m happy to see that Armin Shimerman will be attending twice.

6. Keachick (rose pinenut) - August 9, 2011

I see that only John Cho is attending this convention. Hopefully by next year a lot more of the newest cast of Trek actors will be attending, even Chris Pine. I can’t imagine it is the same people organising these latest Star Trek conventions were also the ones organising the Chips convention that his father attended many years ago… (Hope not.)

Chris Pine – That was then. This is now… Take a deep breath and have faith.

7. tony - August 9, 2011

Ill be there cant wait b 4th year in a row wish some more of the new movie actors were coming

8. Fred - August 9, 2011

Can’t believe each view of the streaming panels is 6.99 that’s 105 bucks if you include the three captains at 14.99

hope someone torrents it

9. Sebastian S. - August 9, 2011

Wish I could be there, but I’m still recovering from San Diego Comic Con. One year I’ll make it down to the Vegas Trek convention I hope.

Kind of sad that only ONE star from new Star Trek is attending…

10. Andy Patterson - August 9, 2011

I’ve wanted to go to this one for some time. Don’t know if it’s going to happen ever though.

11. Chris M - August 9, 2011

Wish I could be there, going to be an amazing convention!! Look forward to reading all about it :-)

12. Shatoupee - August 9, 2011

More Kreation Krap!

13. Let Them Eat Plomeek Soup - August 9, 2011


Your family really did that to you? They’re all Herberts–all of them!

Driving to Vegas on Thursday…still trying to get my TOS yeoman’s costume straightened out…

And now…to watch TWOK for preparation…


14. Basement Blogger - August 9, 2011

Wow. I wish I had the dough to make it. All that stuff sounds great.

15. Joseph Dickerson - August 10, 2011

Joe has a sad. Joe stuck in Sydney working. Joe miss all of you. Have a drink for Joe. Have fun for Joe.

16. Towerpower3000 - August 10, 2011

I’m in Vegas now – arrived a little while ago after a Delta delay.

I’m excited to visit my first Vegas convention. Got picture sessions scheduled for Nimoy/Spiner and Nichols/Takei. I am not happy however that during panels and speakers the audience CANNOT do video recording. Pics are ok, but videos are not allowed. If I were home I could pay 6.99 per session to watch but I’m not home and I’m going to be there and can’t record anything. Something about this is not right. I’m paying 80.00 a day for a ticket and not allowed to videotape? That’s crazy. This will probably be the last time I come to this event because I do not support that restriction. Am I bitter? yeah probably a bit. I feel like I’m getting nickeled-and-dimed to death here.

17. Oscar Benjamin - August 10, 2011

I will also be covering this convention in my column with my usual amount of images and possibly some interviews! Anthony-I am sure we will meet up there and goof off also! I am looking forward to it. For interested fans-here are my links as I always welcome new readers! Cheers, everybody! is represented by Gorilla Nation.
