Star Trek: The Next Generation‘s Whoopi Goldberg will be making her first Star Trek convention appearance this summer.
Goldberg will be appearing at Creation Entertainment’s 50th Anniversary Star Trek Las Vegas convention, which runs August 3-7 at the Rio Suites Hotel in Las Vegas.
“Out of all the amazing talents we’ve wanted, but have not been able to get to appear at Creation Entertainment’s Official Star Trek Conventions over the years, one person was always at the top of the list, Whoopi Goldberg,” said Creation co-founder and co-COO Gary Berman. “Not only is Whoopi Goldberg an international show business treasure with incredible film, theater and TV work that has stood the test of time, but we’ve been following her career since her incredible one-woman Broadway show in 1984, which led to her casting in The Color Purple.
“…we’re really grateful that it is happening in the 50th anniversary year at a convention that is going to be the best ever, especially with this new exciting announcement.”
Goldberg will be appearing on stage Thursday, August 4. She will also be available to sign autographs and for photo ops with fans on the same date.
