Star Trek Convention Events

5 Must-See Events at the Las Vegas Star Trek Convention

This year marks the 45th anniversary of Star Trek, and the Las Vegas Star Trek Convention is bringing the big names from the entire series to one fan-filled location. The convention schedule can be a bit tricky to navigate, so we narrowed down the five events no Trekkie can miss once in Vegas.

  1. Leonard Nimoy photography seminar, Friday, August 12 at 7 p.m. — The original Spock will lecture on conceptual photography, a subject he knows much about with his recent photography exhibit Secret Selves, portraits of people dressed as their fantasy personalities.
  2. The Captains on Stage, Sunday, August 14 at 1:20 p.m. — In the main theater, former Star Trek captains Sir Patrick Stewart, William Shatner, and Kate Mulgrew will take to the main stage in front of thousands of awestruck fans.
  3. World record of most Star Trek costumes in one place — Need to beat the current world record set by the European convention FEDCON this May of 691 costumed attendees. Saturday, August 13, at 4:15 p.m., the Star Trek Las Vegas Convention will attempt to beat the record.

Two more events for convention goers after the break.

  1. Costume Contest, Saturday, August 13 at 8:45 p.m. — Cosplay enthusiasts are encouraged to enter the contest for the chance to win $1,000, which would recoup the convention costs and buy memorabilia without breaking the bank.
  2. Celebrity autograph and photo opportunities — The chance to get your Star Trek action figures signed will cost somewhere between $20 and $90, but for devoted fans, this is the best present to themselves.
