With only a few conventions left for 2005, Creation Entertainment has begun to announce its lineup for its big gatherings in 2006.
Avery Brooks (Sisko), Jonathan Frakes (Riker) and Garrett Wang (Kim) have all signed for Grand Slam XIV convention in Pasadena the weekend of March 10-12th, 2006. Gold weekend packages are now available, guaranteeing the best seating, autographs and an invitation to a dessert party with guests.
But the big convention for next year will be the 40th Anniversary Star Trek Celebration in Las Vegas at the Las Vegas Hilton, home of the Star Trek Experience. Thus far Frakes and Nichelle Nichols (Uhura) have signed for the gathering, but many more guests are expected. Last year William Shatner (Kirk), Patrick Stewart (Stewart), Kate Mulgrew (Janeway) and numerous other regular and guest stars attended the Las Vegas convention.
For fans who can't wait to attend a convention, there are a couple taking place in coming months. New England's United Fan Con has reported that Stewart will be unable to attend due to other obligations but Leonard Nimoy (Spock) is expected to attend as well as guests from Battlestar Galactica, Stargate, Harry Potter, Doctor Who and several other franchises. The convention will take place November 11-13th.
Starbase Indy in Indianapolis will cover the weekend of November 25-27th. Confirmed guests include Dominic Keating (Reed), Max Grodénchik (Rom), Chase Masterson (Leeta), Aron Eisenberg (Nog) and more.
And for fans who cannot attend a convention but want a Star Trek-themed holiday gift including t-shirts, mugs and autographed photos, creation is offering gift boxes.
