Captain James T. Kirk in the form of William Shatner will once again beam himself into the official Star Trek Las Vegas Convention at the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino Wednesday August 1 through Sunday August 5.
Creation Entertainment says at least 109 celebrities with connections to the iconic space exploration franchise are expected to attend this year’s conclave which will be celebrating Star Trek: Deep Space Nine’s (DS9) 25th anniversary.
Creation also confirmed this week Armin Shimerman, Rene Auberjonois and Nana Visitor will be attending. They join the previously announced Deep Space Nine main cast members Terry Farrell, Cirroc Lofton, Colm Meaney, Michael Dorn and Nicole De Boer. There are also a number of DS9 recurring guest stars attending, including Max Grodenchik, Chase Masterson, Casey Biggs, Robert O’Reilly, JG Hertzler, Aron Eisenberg, Jeffrey Combs, Camille Saviola, James Darren, Andrew Robinson, and Marc Alaimo. Also on hand will be DS9 writer/producers Ira Steven Behr and Ron D. Moore.
A full schedule of nearly non-stop activities and events will be announced in the next few weeks.
The gathering will also feature many celebrities from The Original Series, Next Generation, Voyager, and Enterprise. Series captain Kate Mulgrew will join Shatner, now 87, in addition to over a dozen main cast members from those shows.
