Last week we reported on the new free Virtual Trek Con, which is lining up stars and behind-the-scenes vets from across the Star Trek franchise. Originally that event was planned for July 22nd to the 27th. However after Comic-Con International announced their Comic-Con@Home virtual event for that same weekend, Virtual Trek Con has moved their event to one week earlier, now July 15-20.
Finally, July’s annual Shore Leave convention in Maryland was canceled but this week they announced Shore Leave 41.5 – The Virtual Experience. The online event takes place July 10-12 and promises fan panels, science presentations and author panels as well as a virtual costume contest.
