Fans of the last two Star Trek movies are seeing some of the actors from the movies beginning to appear at various conventions.

From now through the end of the year, here is a listing of the conventions where fans can find the actors.

Karl Urban, Bones, has a busy convention schedule. This month, he can be found at Megacon, which takes place at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida from March 21-23.

Urban will also be at Emerald City Comicon, which takes place March 28-30 at the Washington State Convention Center in Seattle, Washington. Also in attendance at this convention will be Star Trek 2009‘s Rachel Nichols (Gaila).

On April 18-20, fans can see Urban at Fan Expo Vancouver, to be held at the Vancouver Convention Centre in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. Urban will then move on to the Calgary Comic & Entertainment Expo, which takes place Apr. 24-27 at Stampede Park, in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. Urban will finish out his Canadian conventions with the Ottawa Comiccon, which takes place May 9-11 at the EY Centre in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.

In the States, Urban will appear at the Motor City Comic Con, to be held May 16-18, at the Suburban Collection Showplace in Novi, Michigan.

    “Keenser”? That useless thing has a name??
    I’ve always referred to it as Star Trek’s Jar-Jar. Sometimes I’m convinced this is what “J.J.” actually stands for.
    (No offense to the actor)

    Except Keenser is 99% less annoying. While he is a completely pointless and improbable character, I actually like him :)

  • Fy

    I like him, too. He isn’t even pointless or improbable! He demonstrates the diversity of a post-first-contact world – he’s an alien who is an engineer and a Starfleet officer, he perches in high places because he has to work in an environment that is designed for (tall) human physiology and he probably doesn’t like spending his life at crotch level, he doesn’t talk much because English isn’t his first language, and he goes everywhere with Scotty because he’s probably the only person he’s gotten to know. Scotty himself in XI was the Jar-Jar of the movie.

    Clifton Collins Jr. (Ayel in “Star Trek” 2009) will be at the Chiller Theatre convention in Parsippany, NJ from April 25-27.

    I enjoyed the last two Star Trek movies very well and I wish all these actors the best at the conventions.

    No, he’s just as pointless. In fact I’d dare say Jar Jar is more important to Star Wars than Keenser is to JJ-Trek. After all, it was Jar Jar who gave the winning vote in the Galactic Senate that gave Palpatine the power to ultimately become Emperor.
