The atmosphere at the years STLV is so much more relaxed despite there being so much more original and new content to see. So far, it's the best year!
We start the day with a DS9 talk.
Deep Space Nine Panel
Creation Enterainment's top Admiral Adam has joined the band are performing a very cool soft rock version of the DS9 theme track! Sorry we didn't record it. We take those 'no recording' requests serious as we'd like Press Passes granted in future years!
The panel consisted of Ira Steven Behr, Nicole de Boer, Andrew Robinson, James Darren and Chase Masterson.
Something we have noticed every time we see Ira is that he is very open to self criticism and openly encourages it from the audience and and the panel participants. Unsurprisingly these are the people who need that feedback the least because they are so highly regarded.
This is certainly the case … Continue Reading ››
The schedule for Star Trek Las Vegas hasn't arrived yet but that doesn't mean we can't start planning. We have lots to look forward too with so much planned and announced already.
We are also very fortunate to be working with STLV organisers Creation Entertainment to giveaway autographs throughout the event! Read on to find out how you can get one...
As we said in our previous blog post,
STLV boasts the largest gathering of Discovery guests ever! It's almost everyone.
We want to hear every word and soak in the positivity that emanates from the cast so we're hoping for lots of Discovery panels.
We're particularly thrilled that Gersha Phillips

We have heard that the Discovery Mirror Universe Exhibition
which was at SDCC at the weekend will be appearing at … Continue Reading ››
Exploring the venue at STLV is fairly straight forward. BUT HUGE! The main theatre is HUGE. The vendors room is HUGE. Even the small stage is rather big.
New this year was the 10 Forward set.
After the morning I had getting to STLV I was ready to slump myself over that bar and down a Samarian Sunset or six.
What Creation Entertainment do very well is frame their prop sets. 10 Forward was in a room dedicated to showcasing items for the TNG 30 year anniversary exhibit. (see more photos in gallery below).
The rooms that holds the TOS bridge has an ambience fitting of a sacred place...which it is. They have music and shmoozy lighting which shows of the colours of the set.
There are a huge number of vendors as always at STLV. The most popular … Continue Reading ››
Taking place August 2nd - 6th at the Rio All Suites Hotel Las Vegas. Check out our last article detailing the main highlights of the event.
The main talks most attendees will want to hear are the Wednesdays Star Trek Discovery panels and the TNG 30 anniversary reunion on Friday night (separate tickets needed for general admission). But there is so much more to STLV than panels. Having seen many of the big name guests I'm thinking about going more 'lower decks' this year. Here's some highlights from the jam packed schedule plus some things that aren't on the panel.
The action begins before the convention starts with the annual 'Landing Party' hosted by Larry Nemecek and Portal 47
. Held in the Masquerade Bar from 21.00 it's a great chance to mingle, catch up with friends as well as participate in trivia and games.
UPDATE: Masquerade Bar is … Continue Reading ››
