Creation Entertainment’s annual Las Vegas Star Trek convention, now dubbed “The 55-Year Mission Tour”, will return next Wednesday, August 11, after last year’s show get postponed twice due to the pandemic.
While this year’s convention is a go, it hasn’t been without its challenges. The Delta variant has caused a surge of infections in Nevada, with mask mandates returning in various counties in the state, including Clark County, where Las Vegas is located. This development has made both fans and celebrities understandably concerned about traveling to the city.
Most of the TrekMovie team will be heading to the con, including Shuttlepodders Kayla, Jared, and Brian. In this episode, they preview the convention, their own concerns about navigating a convention during a pandemic, and more. We also spoke to DS9’s Chase Masterson, who will be a guest at the con, about how Creation is working to keep the actors safe as well as her work with Pop Culture Hero Coalition, which she’ll be promoting at the show.
