The annual Star Trek-themed convention returns to the Las Vegas Rio with William Shatner, Sonequa Martin-Green, George Takei, Anson Mount, Jeri Ryan & many more.
More than 160 cast and crew members from every iteration of Star Trek are set to warp into Las Vegas later this week for the largest annual convention of its kind — Creation Entertainment’s 57-Year Mission (formerly known as Star Trek Las Vegas) kicks off this Thursday, August 3rd and runs through Sunday, August 6th. This year, the convention returns to its longtime home at the Rio All-Suites Hotel for four days of Star Trek panels, celebrity signings, and photo ops. Due to the ongoing SAG-AFTRA strike, the experience at this year’s event may be a bit different, with union actors and writers having some restrictions regarding the discussion of struck work.
This year’s headliners…
This year’s event will be headlined by William Shatner, George Takei, and Walter Koenig from The Original Series, Zachary Quinto from the Kelvin Timeline trilogy of Star Trek films, along with Anson Moun, Ethan Peck, and Paul Wesley from Strange New Worlds, Sonequa Martin-Green and Doug Jones from Discovery, and Jeri Ryan from Voyager and Picard.
In addition to the celebrity panels and vendors, this year’s convention will include a special Star Trek: The Next Generation reunion with Jonathan Frakes, Brent Spiner, LeVar Burton, Michael Dorn, Marina Sirtis, Gates McFadden, Denise Crosby, and John de Lancie. The TNG Reunion will be a separate ticketed event.
