The Las Vegas Star Trek con kicked off on Thursday morning with a group of Zombified Star Trek red shirts dancing to Michael Jacksons "Thriller." We have photos and video and report on how it was organized below.
Zombie Redshirt Crew Dances "Thriller"
The con kicked off today with a new and unusual sight — a swarm of red shirt zombies sauntered onto the con floor and gave con-goers quite a show with a choreographed rendition of Michael Jackson’s "Thriller."
What looks to be a new Vegas convention favorite started as a conversation online. "It was the power of Facebook," says organizer and lead zombie Anthony Kwan. With the help of Facebook friends from all over the country, and the professional skills of Zoomba instructor Damien Siegle, the group pulled off quite a show and made the con kick-off a moment to remember.
