While Creation Entertainment is still running a big August convention in Las Vegas packed with Star Trek celebrities, it is no longer an official Star Trek event. Earlier this year ViacomCBS announced that Reed Pop now held the license, and was planning an annual “Star Trek Mission” convention, with the first coming in April 2022 in Chicago. Today details on ticket packages were announced along with some more celebrities.
#StarTrekCHI tickets on sale next week
Star Trek: Mission Chicago will run April 8-10, 2022 at McCormick Place in Chicago, Illinois. Today ReedPop gave us our first update since it was announced in April. Star Trek: Voyager’s Kate Mulgrew and Star Trek: Picard’s Michelle Hurd have joined the previously announced Wil Wheaton from TNG as celebrity guests. Reed Pop also promised that more “exciting guest announcements” will be revealed soon.
In addition to the celebrity guests, Mission Chicago will feature interactive exhibits, exclusive merchandise, photo opportunities, costume exhibits, autograph sessions, gameplay and other “special surprises.” Reed Pop promises “Mission Chicago will give fans the opportunity to boldly explore the past, present and future of the franchise, while embracing the ideals of a diverse and inclusive future that remains at the center of Gene Roddenberry’s beloved creation.”
They also announced ticket pricing today with 1-day general admission tickets set at $65 ($35 for kids) and a 3-day package at $155. There is also a $750 Priority One Access VIP package with a number of special benefits including reserved seating, along with special access to the show floor, autographs, photo ops, and more. Tickets go on sale on Thursday, July 29.
