Convention Report: The Second Annual Star Trek Day in City of Industry

On Saturday, Frank and Son’s Collectible Show along with the Realm Cast presented the second annual “Star Trek Day” in City of Industry, California.

The guest list included Star Trek alumni such as Marina Sirtis, Robert Picardo, John de Lancie, Chase Masterson, Richard Herd, Carel Struycken and Manu Intiraymi.

The event wasn’t the standard discussion panel-filled convention many fans have become familiar with — Instead this was a more intimate gathering of Star Trek fans and celebrities trading stories, singing autographs, posing for pictures and discussing the pop-culture phenomenon that brings us all together.

The staff of Frank & Son’s along with the hosts of The Realm Cast made sure everyone in attendance went home happy — Giving away t-shirts, complete ‘Generations’ scripts, and samples of Cryptic Studios’ Star Trek Online. The Los Angeles Cinema Makeup School was also on-hand doing sci-fi makeup effects on attendees.

Every fan I spoke with seemed to enjoy the event and would come back if it returns in 2012. Aside from a few late cancelations (Kevin Sorbo, Kate Vernon, Catherine Hicks, Carolyn Barry and Tim Russ), the event appeared to run very smoothly.

Below are a few photos from the event.

    Looks like a fun time. How much was Marina charging for autographs?

    I believe she was charging $20 for a signed 8×10.
