    Another great lineup this year. If I go I’d like to see Nichelle Nichols added.

    I went in 2009 and hoping to get back again next year. Just need to get a few things in order.

    Say what you will about Creation, but if you want to go to a convention with the biggest names in Trek, they have it covered. I try to go almost every year and just get a regular weekend pass. It’s not all that expensive and I have a blast. Hope to see a lot of familiar faces again in August!

      I agree. Although it may be a little sad this year without Nimoy. 🙁

  • How can there be a TNG 25th anniversary celebration without Sir Patrick Stewart? Also would love to see Nichelle Nichols there.

    If you guys like Jonathan Frakes, check out this new form of Social Television called Mass Participation TV (MPTV). I work for a production company called Theatrics who created a show called Beckinfield. Basically, you sign up (for free) create a character and start recording videos to add to the plot of the show. They started an Ultimate Online Audition Contest in which you compete for the most creative video in order to win $10,000 and win a round trip for two to Hollywood. Celebrity judge Jonathan Frakes (Star Trek, Leverage) chooses the winner after 3 rounds. But Round 1 ends in 3 days (December 10) so join now for a better chance at winning the Grand Prize.
