Star Trek fans have known and loved Brent Spiner for his portrayal as Data on The Next Generation – and now fans from all over the world can spend an evening with Brent in a whole new way!

Presenting for the first time in Las Vegas in its entirety, this very special Saturday Night Gala features Brent performing a selection of songs with his live band. It will be an experience attendees will never forget, but don’t take our word for it -- here’s what Brent has to say about it!!

This show is great! Brent Spiner is my favorite performer!”- Brent Spiner

The Saturday Night Gala is included on a complimentary basis for GOLD, CAPTAIN’S CHAIR or COPPER Package patrons who can keep their same seats they had during the day.

For those who do not have the Saturday Night Gala included in your admission package as above or are not attending the convention at all, you can still attend the Gala by purchasing a separate ticket for $60. Note: The Gala ticket does not include admission to the convention.


A limited number of tickets will be on sale, and may sell out, at the convention.

STATE TAXES INCLUDED ON YOUR INVOICE: As a result of the Supreme Court Ruling during 2018 affecting online sales taxes (both state and local taxes), various states are requiring sales tax (both state and local taxes) on ANY online sales; therefore, you may now start seeing a separate charge on your invoice for this sales tax. The prices at the conventions will be the same as those online. Visit the National Conference of State Legislatures website for more information.

Trial and Tribble-ations Trial and Tribble-ations Panel

Celebrate glorious continuity with members of the Star Trek: Deep Space Nine Art and Visual Effects Department, namely Michael and Denise Okuda and Judy Elkins, as they explore the making of fan favorite, and Star Trek high water mark, "Trials and Tribble-ations".

“Trials…” is one of the most beloved episodes of all time, the undisputed gold standard for fan happiness and delight across the board. There is probably no other Star Trek episode that so embodies a sense of fun, retro nostalgia, and fulfillment like "Trials and Tribble-ations".

Continuity is the corner stone of Star Trek's popularity and foundation, and it is the joy of knowing it's history, it's taste, and it's texture, dramatically and aesthetically that makes this episode a standout. “Trial and Tribble-ations” does not disappoint.

So explore this masterpiece of continuity and joy with the art department that made sure it towed the line aesthetically from stem to stern. The fidelity of the sets, the props, the uniforms and the starships, demonstrates a level of craft and understanding that goes beyond just doing a job. It's love.

Star Trek & NASA: 50 Years of Inventing the Future Together

Even before NASA and Star Trek existed, filmmakers looked to the aeronautical industry, organizations involved in rocket experiments, and astronomers to aid them in depicting flights to other worlds. The Buck Rogers and Flash Gordon serials treated audiences to space travel in rocket ships to encounter those “new civilizations” we’re so familiar with today, with both good and bad results. Early movies, such as the 1929 Frau im Mond and the 1936 Things to Come, also primed us for more adventures beyond Earth, with films like Captain Video series; Tom Corbett, Space Cadet; Destination Moon; Forbidden Planet and countless others, as art departments (with wildly varying budgets) designed sets and props and spaceship models.

The practice continued with Star Trek, which first aired over 50 years ago, and barely eight years after NASA itself was formed. This presentation will examine many of the concepts developed for Star Trek, both human and alien, with particular emphasis on their scientific and technological plausibility, even in the 24-century. Developments in real-launch vehicles, space stations, and distant planetary spacecraft have all inspired the look of their future versions. Research into new materials and processes, medicines, sensors, computers, and energy systems have likewise driven the look of future handheld equipment. While the real world has been quickly catching up to what we have designed in the Star Trek universe, we continue to learn and ask questions -- and imagine.

Teaching with Trek

We know that stories are an effective tool for teaching. Gene Roddenberry wanted Star Trek to make audiences consider important ideas and issues. In the home, classroom or just among friends, Star Trek can be a valuable resource to illustrate and spur discussion on diversity, humanity, philosophy, science, and the role of technology. It’s smart. It’s relevant. It teaches. It is modern mythology.

The topics at this year’s Star Trek convention all deal with media literacy and how stories are about much more than a simple plot. Speakers will examine what Star Trek can show us about narrative structure and production design, law, science, diversity, philosophy and symbolism. See how Star Trek is used around the world for teaching in the home, classroom and culture.

Boldly Go: A Comparative Law Analysis of the Star Trek Universe with Real Earth Space Law (Thursday)
How does Star Trek's United Federation of Planets stack up against our United Nations? Is the Prime Directive covered in our 1967 Outer Space Treaty? Find out with Elsbeth J. Magilton, the Executive Director of the Space, Cyber, and Telecom Law Program at the University of Nebraska, as she teaches attendees a little international and domestic space law through the lens of classic Star Trek (with a little Next Generation thrown in).

“Eyes Open” - Teaching Critical Thinking and Critical Literacy with Star Trek (Thursday)
Star Trek’s world is ready-made for teaching fundamental critical thinking skills since it is fueled by a democratizing spirit and an allegorical intent. Immanuel Kant’s imperative “sapere aude” (dare to know) has been a core tenet of Star Trek since its beginning. An excellent example of science fiction (sf), Star Trek comes with the basic building blocks of critical thinking already built-in. It provides us with an estranged vantage point to see our world and ourselves in it from a different imaginative angle which demands an imaginative, democratically enabling and, ultimately ennobling response. Dr. Stefan “Steve” Rabitsch, Assistant Professor, University of Graz (Germany), will showcase practical pedagogical approaches for how to effectively engage with Star Trek in class settings as well as specific examples drawn from the Star Trek corpus which he has repeatedly used as entry points to exemplify the basic tenets of critical thinking.

Heroes, Mentors and Mothers: Symbolism, and Character Archetypes in Star Trek’s Mythic Journeys (Friday)
Star Trek is a modern myth that explores the social, moral, and scientific issues of contemporary society Joseph Campbell wrote that myths are the stories that answer the “big questions” in life. Mythic heroes struggle with those questions, make difficult choices, and demonstrate culturally that they are not alone on their Hero’s Journey. In this session, Dr. Janet “Dr. Mc” McMullen, Associate Professor, University of North Alabama, will explore how some of our favorite characters represent classic mythic archetypes. Who are the mentors, tricksters, mothers, and shadows in your favorite series?

Medical Ethics in Sickbay (Friday)
Star Trek doesn’t shy away from important social, political or ethical issues. In this session, Dr. Eric Chwang, Associate Professor of Philosophy, Rutgers University, Camden & University of Colorado, Boulder; Dr. Beth Seacord, Assistant Professor of Philosophy, College of Southern Nevada; and actor John Billingsley (“Dr. Phlox” from Star Trek: Enterprise) will focus questions of medical ethics raised in the sickbay. Some of these issues include the ethics of euthanasia (explored in The Next Generation episodes “Half a Life” and “Ethics”), questions of informed consent and pediatric informed consent, the ethics of organ donation (explored in the Enterprise episode “Similitude”), and questions of justice in healthcare allocation (explored in Voyager’s episode “Critical Care”).

Set Phasers to Teach (Friday)
Dr. Stefan “Steve” Rabitsch, Dr. des. Sabrina Mittermeier, Research Assistant at the Chair of American Studies at University of Augsburg, and Dr. John NA Brown, UX and UED Researcher -- the editors and cartoonist for Set Phasers To Teach: Star Trek in Research and Teaching -- will speak to how they employ Star Trek in higher education and advanced research. Please join them to see how you can contribute to their next volume.

Engage with STEM (Saturday)
Join Bobak Ferdowsi, Brandon Rodriguez, Danielle Nuding, Lyle Tavernier and Tracy Drain from NASA/Jet Propulsion Laboratory as they share their experience in getting involved in STEM. This group of scientists, engineers and educators will answer questions, offer guidance, and provide tips and information about ways you can get involved in STEM.

Star Trek for Students: Roving on Kolarus (Sunday)
Join NASA/Jet Propulsion Laboratory educators Brandon Rodriguez and Lyle Tavernier for an additional STEM challenge that builds on from the previous day’s challenge: Roving on Kolarus. School-age Trek fans will modify the design of a roving surface vehicle so that crew members can travel the surface of an alien world! Participation in the activity is NOT required.

Star Trek for Students: Touchdown on Kolarus (Saturday)
And for a final exciting STEM challenge, NASA/Jet Propulsion Laboratory educators Brandon Rodriguez and Lyle Tavernier will present: Touchdown on Kolarus! School-age Trek fans will design and build a landing device to deliver crew members safely to the surface of an alien world.

Star Trek: Gendering the Holodeck and Diversifying the Classroom (Thursday)
Dr. Jennifer Bailey Woodard and Dr. Stephanie Dean, both Associate Professors at Middle Tennessee State University, will participate in a discussion about the significance of the gender and racial diversity on Star Trek and its importance as a historical cultural phenomenon that provides a possible blueprint of how equality can be achieved. They’ll talk about different aspects of Star Trek in teaching race, class and gender in media and also use a virtual reality simulation – Gendering the Holodeck -- to introduce a discussion of gender politics as students try to become captain as either a male or female. They will bring their VR game and headsets for the audience to sample the game.

Time Travel, Transporters, A.I. and the Terran Universe: Philosophy and Star Trek (Thursday)
In this presentation, the panelists -- Dr. Kenny Boyce, Assistant Professor of Philosophy, University of Missouri, Columbia; Dr. Beth Seacord, Assistant Professor of Philosophy, College of Southern Nevada; Dr. Rebecca Chan, Assistant Professor of Philosophy, California State University, San Jose; and Dr. Matt McCormick, Professor of Philosophy, California State University, Sacramento -- will present some of the core philosophical issues raised by Trek. Is time travel inherently contradictory or is it metaphysically possible? Do transporters preserve the person transported or do they send a copy while destroying the original? How much like us are our counterparts in alternate universes? And what might we learn about ourselves from our counterparts?

Transparent Trek: A Deeper Look into “The House of Quark” (Wednesday)
In this workshop, Dr. Janet “Dr. Mc” McMullen will take you through one of her favorite Deep Space Nine episodes, “The House of Quark” to take an in-depth look at how costuming, set design, camera and characters make Quark’s Hero’s Journey such a delight. Join this discussion and learn to “read” and appreciate Star Trek in a whole new way. Handouts provided.

What Can We Learn from the Klingon Empire? (Thursday)
The Star Trek franchise has frequently used stories about alien cultures as metaphors for issues in contemporary society. The proud Klingon species has been portrayed as both ally and adversary, appearing in every incarnation of Star Trek. What can the Klingons tell us about real-world issues? What historical events have influenced the evolving depiction of this honor bound society? Dr. Daniel Martin, Associate Professor, Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST), will suggest ways in which analysis of Klingon-centric episodes of Star Trek can effectively guide students - who may be unfamiliar with the franchise and have little knowledge of American history - through the ways the series engages with ideology, history and politics.

Science of Trek

Time Travel in Star Trek (Saturday)
Dr. Erin Macdonald, Astrophysicist, Science Fiction Consultant, Aerospace Engineer, will walk us through the science behind time travel in Star Trek. Time travel has always played a huge part in the stories of Star Trek, from Daniels in Enterprise to rescuing whales in the Voyage Home and many more. We will talk about all the different ways we see and explain time travel and what the science behind it is.

Why Are There So Many Humanoids on Star Trek? An Evolutionary Perspective (Wednesday)
Have you ever wondered why most alien life depicted on Star Trek strongly resembles us Earthlings (besides the use of human actors)? Come explore the possibility of humanoid or other forms of life on other planets with Dr. Mohamed Noor, Professor of Biology and Dean of Natural Sciences at Duke University and lifelong Trek fan. Drawing on relevant scenes from the series as well as real science, Noor presents evidence for the existence of a common ancestor for life on Earth, and clarifies misconceptions about evolutionary biology. He explains some basic evolutionary principles and uses these principles to evaluate three hypotheses posed in various Star Trek series for why there are so many humanoids. Come see which of the hypotheses is the most feasible, and learn a lot of evolution in the process!

Science of Star Trek: Discovery (Friday)
In this panel, Dr. Mohamed Noor and Dr. Erin Macdonald will take you through the biology and physics behind the new Star Trek series. Everything from multiverse theory, tardigrades, spore drives, DNA splicing, and more... nothing is off-limits! As both scientists and die-hard fans of Star Trek, these two love getting into detailed discussions of Star Trek and how to make the science work!

Physics in Star Trek (Thursday)
Dr. Erin Macdonald will geek out about some of the coolest realistic and (mostly) not-so-realistic physics in Star Trek. She’ll discuss the science behind technology such as transporters, warp drives and more as well as which ones we may be close to achieving. All levels of science backgrounds are welcome!

Starfleet Academy: Astronomy 101 (Sunday)
Always wanted to take Astronomy 101 and learn more about space? Wish you could do it at Starfleet Academy? This is the class for you! Dr. Erin Macdonald will give us a crash course in basic astronomy, littered with Star Trek examples and references to anchor our knowledge. We'll blaze through the science of planets, the solar system, and stars at warp speed; come ready to learn!

Enterprise Model

Model designer Stefan "Steve“ Oster has had a fascination for astronomy and observing the stars since he was a little boy. The Star Trek series and movies accompanied his life until today, and they had a great influence on his views, including on a hopeful future. He started building models more than 30 years ago and scratch models about 12 years ago. He loves building tribute scratch models, which are different from replicas, and has his own style of scratch building. As tools, Oster uses utility knives, steel rulers, pencils, acrylic brushes and other commercially available hand tools, without using airbrushes, 3D printers or milling machines.

Oster's tribute model of the Enterprise 1701-E in scale 1:300 consists of over 10,000 hand-crafted and hand formed parts, and it took him 2,100 hours to build it. The main building materials are polystyrene, special cardboard and foam panels. Check it out when you visit Quark's Bar!

Five Decades of Love & Progress

Star Trek at the Emmys

Diversity. Inclusion. Hope. Positivity.

The 2019 Convention is indeed a five-day and night celebration of all the various incarnations of Star Trek that have touched all our lives and changed society in ways no one could have predicted or truly known.

The photo above taken at a recent awards ceremony symbolizes what we are working on with our partners to make the 2019 gathering even better. Watch this page as we begin to add to our events. Convening with thousands of fans is just part of continuing the legacy of our mentor Gene Roddeberry. As this is the place to honor the galaxy represented by the Star Trek canon, we are thinking of this theme as we begin to put together our fantastic line-up.

Now in its 10th year, the famous STAR TREK “RAT PACK” show is an original musical comedy performance, written and produced by talented Max Grodenchik (DS9’s Rom) and joined by fellow stars Casey Biggs, Jeffrey Combs, Vaughn Armstrong -- and for her Rat Pack debut, Nana Visitor!

This year’s performance features brand new songs, tailored for the 10th Anniversary celebration! The STAR TREK “RAT PACK” show is set for Sunday night and this is the last event of the convention where we can laugh, enjoy, and celebrate Star Trek with fellow fans from around the galaxy.

While this is a FREE event and open to all attendees,
Gold and Captains Chair patrons will retain their same seats.

Most of the Star Trek fans would say that the convention week in Las Vegas is unprecedented and unlike any other fan gathering in the world! Our 2018 convention was truly incredible and received worldwide coverage, especially due to super-surprise appearance of Sir Patrick Stewart to announce his return as legendary Captain Picard in a brand new series. Attendees also warmly received the new cast of Star Trek: Discovery, making them feel so welcomed.

The 2018 event also featured over 100 guests, hundreds of cosplayers, non-stop action, and free perks. Plus, there’s the immediate friendships you will make with fellow fans, many that will last a lifetime.

With parties and musical performances going way into the night, guest hosts, and the bar scene hopping after as is the casino and The Rio’s wonderful array of dining spots; it is virtually 24 hours a day of all things Star Trek! With Star Trek now in an incredible never before seen pattern of growth and new ventures, this is the best time to be part of the Las Vegas Convention, because you just don’t know what could happen! Of course there is the world’s largest Trek vendors room, signing area, art displays, photo ops, autographs, and re-creations of famed sets from the franchise’s history. And that’s just a small part of the fun, along with changing and new attractions for all. ALWAYS, make sure you are on our FREE Star Trek e-mail list so you know about new guests, developments, ticket launches, and all the latest news!

The Star Trek experience continues as you reach the massive Gene & Majel Roddenberry Vendors Room, filled with extraordinary collectables, both new and vintage from the Star Trek Universe.

The galaxy's largest Star Trek Convention dealers room and vendors are coming from around the globe to display at this event. You'll find photos, posters, artwork, toys, dolls, games, books and magazines, autographed items, costume and prop replicas, limited edition items and so much more! Start saving now because there will be tons of stuff you will want! And don't forget to meet many fantastic Star Trek celebrities who are present at various times throughout the convention to greet attendees and offer their autographs at a nominal fee.

On Saturday, we have our famous Costume Parade to open the day as scores of amazing cosplayers make their way in costume through the convention (including the Vendors Area & The Promenade) and into the main theatre for a group picture. The parade is often lead by a Parade Marshall, typically a Star Trek celebrity! There will be surprises galore, and we certainly love the fact that literally thousands come in terrific costumes.

Also, our best advice is to make sure you eat (and the Rio has SO many excellent choices you can’t go wrong) and drink plenty of fluids during your stay – and wear comfortable shoes or sneakers if you can.

Besides the main auditorium and registration area, The Promenade Hallway serves as your main focal point for getting to all other areas of the convention, including the Vendors Room. It also has various rooms, special exhibits, some prop replicas, displays and more. It’s a great place to ask a cosplay attendee to allow you to take pictures as there as so many potential backdrops.

Photo Ops Room: On the right side of the Promenade, you’ll find the photo ops room where you take photos with your favorite Star Trek players. Click here for tickets!

Quark’s Bar: A great place to grab some needed food and drink. Plus, we will have a model of the Enterprise on display!

CBS All Access Stage (in Quark’s Bar): You can participate in trivia contests and more!

Original Series Bridge: Off the Promenade is a gorgeous re-creation of the amazing Original Series bridge – and a perfect spot to take a photo op with TOS guests. Click here for tickets!

The Borg Regeneration Chambers: An excellent exhibit to cosplay with the Borg Collective!

Ten Forward Bar from The Next Generation: A great re-creation of the famed bar from TNG, just off the Promenade. You can even purchase some photo ops with some of the TNG cast. Click here for tickets!

The Agonizer Booth from Star Trek: Discovery: As one of the terrifying torture devices from Season 1, here’s your chance to purchase a photo inside the booth (but don’t worry, you don’t have to go in it, if you don’t want to!) 

Original Series Transporter Pad: Beam yourself up on this re-creation of the Transporter pad. Another fantastic opportunity for a photo!

We welcome you into our secondary ballroom, The DeForest Kelley Theatre, which will hold additional programming and panels more attuned to the behind the scenes of the Star Trek franchise. It is also where we do the no minimum bid auctions, contests, special guest star appearances, and surprises! Seating is first-come, first served, but the theatre is spacious, so seats are usually available. (Note: The room is closed part of Saturday for the costume contest pre-judging.)

The studio approves all vendors unless you were approved last year or are an official licensee, so write to us at with what you want to display and sell! Please do not purchase a booth or table without an okay from us, which we must get from the studio, and note that anything infringing on studio intellectual property is forbidden, as is promotion of any Star Trek fan films.

Creation Difference


It certainly seems like EVERY year the famous “Creation Difference” becomes more and more prominent. Creation Entertainment has a strict policy not to "oversell" our conventions. In other words, every patron, no matter what bracket of ticket they purchase, will have a guaranteed seat in the main auditorium where the major guests appear and events take place. There's no worrying or extra waiting to see the celebrities and events you want to see during all FIVE daytime programming in the main and secondary theaters.

Another thing we love is that The Creation LAS VEGAS Official Star Trek Convention is in a super-large, friendly hotel! Completely carpeted and filled with award winning restaurants for every budget (including excellent buffets) as well as a dynamic casino, fun bars, and many areas to relax and chill, The RIO SUITES HOTEL allows fellow fans to gather and share common interests and ideals in Gene Roddenberry's philosophies (or just to talk trivia!). We aren’t in a cold concrete convention hall where food lines are mobbed, offer limited fare, and are super-expensive, nor are our crowds uncomfortably huge. It is our goal to offer YOU the very best vacation we can!

Costumes and Cosplay

The very first Creation Costume Contest was held in 1971, and we are proud that the tradition continues stronger than ever! Star Trek fandom certainly boasts some of the most creative and talented costume and make-up designers, and the over 1,500 attendees who participate take their Star Trek cosplay very seriously. They come to the convention in such fantastic and elaborate costumes! Bring your cameras as many cosplayers are open to take pics with you and make great memories.

Set on SATURDAY, the fun starts with the FAMOUS CREATION COSPLAY PARADE in the morning, in which cosplayers march around the convention starting at the vendors area and end up in the main theatre for a group photo shot on stage.

Then later, the famous STAR TREK COSTUME COMPETITION takes place with a panel of celebrity and expert judges. It’s one of the definite highlights of the whole convention, with lots of cool prizes including a very special $1000 best-in-show gift certificate! Let your spirit shine, come in costume and pump up the experience of The Official STAR TREK Convention, Vegas cosplay-style. CLICK HERE FOR DETAILS, RULES AND HOW TO ENTER!

Set phasers to FUN! There's always something new at Dave & Buster's – the ONLY place to Eat, Drink, Play & Watch Sports® all under one roof!
