Shore Leave 36 takes place next weekend, August 1-3, and although pre-registration is closed, tickets still remain for the event and can be purchased at the door.
Trek guest stars this year include Star Trek: Voyager‘s Robert Picardo and Michael Welch (Star Trek: Insurrection). Leonard Nimoy will be making a guest appearance via Skype. The eighty-three-year-old Nimoy is only doing convention appearances via Skype now, and his Skype appearance at Away Mission in Tampa earlier this year was very well-received by attendees.
Other media guest stars include Richard Dean Anderson (MacGyver, Stargate SG-1), Teryl Rothery (Stargate, Caprica), Eve Myles (Torchwood, Dr. Who), Silas Weir Mitchell (Grimm, 24), and Star Trek Seekers Cover Artist Rob Caswell.

This year’s list of author guests includes: Kevin Dilmore, Michael Jan Friedman, Dave Galanter, Robert Greenberger, Glenn Hauman, Jim Johnson, Jeffrey Lang, William Leisner, David Mack, Steven H Wilson, Marco Palmieri, Aaron Rosenberg, Melissa Scott, Kevin G Summers, Dayton Ward, Howard Weinstein, and Richard C White. Fans can get their books autographed in the Meet the Pros event.
