Creation’s Official Star Trek Convention Takes Boston This Weekend

Creation Entertainment’s Official Star Trek Convention continues its celebration of the series’ 45th anniversary today through Sunday in Boston at the Hyatt Regency Cambridge.

Tickets are available through various packages, including the illustrious “Gold Weekend Package” (which includes perks such as reserved seating, unlimited, first-serve in-person autographs, and complimentary admission to both the Friday Night Celebrity Cocktail Party and Saturday Night “Star Trek Rat Pack Performance”) for $329. Fans may also opt for the “Preferred Weekend Package” for $199, general weekend admission for $90, “Preferred” single day passes for $40, $50, and $60 for Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, respectively, and general admission single day passes for $20, $25, and $50 for Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, respectively. Tickets are available at the event.

The big draw of this weekend’s event is the (this time planned) appearance of William Shatner. Joining him will be Connor Trinneer (Enterprise’s “Trip” Tucker), Gwynyth Walsh and Barbara March (B’Etor and Lursa of the Duras Sisters), Dominic Keating (Enterprise’s Lt. Malcolm Reed), Max Grodenchik (DS9’s Rom), J.G. Hertzler and Robert O’Reilly (the nefarious Klingons Martok and Gowron), Ethan Phillips (Voyager’s Neelix), Jeffrey Combs (Enterprise’s Commander Shran and DS9’s Weyoun), Casey Biggs (DS9’s Damar), Chase Masterson (DS9’s Leeta), and Vaughn Armstrong (DS9’s Seskai, Voyager’s Alpha-Hirogen, and Enterprise’s Admiral Maxwell Forrest).

Events will include “Trek Expert” with the legendary Gene Roddenberry’s former assistant Richard Arnold, the music and comedy variety show “Star Trek Rat Pack”, Sunday morning’s “Breakfast with the Klingons”, the perennial “Yes/No Trivia Challenge”, Friday’s Celebrity Cocktail Party, an on-stage makeup workshop hosted by John Paladin, an auction, and a costume parade.

A full schedule of events is available at Creation’s website.
