Unlike so many other genre conventions, Creation Entertainment has a strict company policy not to "oversell" our conventions. In other words, every patron, no matter what bracket of ticket they purchase, will have a seat in the main auditorium where the major guests appear and events take place. Nothing upsets us more than hearing about other conventions that sell tickets to patrons and then those very same patrons have to wait on additional lines inside the facility to get into (or sometimes not!) the main theatre. An important Creation Entertainment difference we want you to know about!
The Creation difference extends to our 40 years experience in running fan conventions. In the last few years we've seen promoter after promoter fail taking hard earned ticket money down with them. Inexperienced promoters, often first-timers, use celebrity images and names to get ticket money which they use to hopefully pay their expenses. When that fails they've already gone through "your" ticket money and they collapse leaving no recourse for ticket holders. They say "buyer beware" but this has happened in Twilight, Star Trek, Battlestar Galactica, and Firefly fandom (to name just a few) and we really feel for those great fans who have lost their ticket money and upset travel plans.
**All Convention tickets have a $7.75 shipping/handling fee charged per ticket ordered. This applies to all online, phone, fax and mail orders.
***Attention Attendees: Do not purchase Creation Tickets from scalpers or anyone trying to offer tickets as you arrive at our convention locations. Each ticket is checked for authenticity at the door with a scanner and we can not let you in if your ticket is counterfeit (which has happened recently). Each ticket once scanned makes any and all copies of that same one of a kind scan void and we can only let the first person in with it. Please ony buy your tickets only from Creation in advance or at the door, we seen too many nice folks lose their hard earned money this way and be turned away. Thanks, we appreciate your support!

CONVENTION NAME, CITY & DATE IN THE SUBJECT LINE OF ALL CORRESPONDENCE.
A separate email is required for each show you wish to volunteer for. A separate email is required for each person volunteering. All volunteers must be 21 yrs or older.
We really appreciate your help in publicizing this event on-line. Grab our banners to put on your site!
Your location will go here.
ALL GUESTS are contracted to appear and all convention contracts specify that appearances are tentative and subject to change as film and television work demands take precedence as can a personal conflict. Our events will take place whether a specific guest cancels or not (we always try to book replacements) and therefore we can not issue admission ticket or ticket package refunds if a particular guest does not fulfill their appearance contract. Of course we will always refund separately purchased photo ops and autograph tickets for a guest if they cancel.
PHOTO TAKING POLICY AT THIS CONVENTION
We know that taking photos makes the convention even more fun and we thought it would be a good idea to share our photo taking policies for you before you arrive at the convention so you can prepare. In the auditorium, photo taking is encouraged, but only from your seat. It is unfair to run up to the stage and block the view of others who have paid for reserved seats in front of you. Even if there are empty seats, patrons must sit in the seats they paid for to be fair to everyone. Due to fire marshall regulations everyone must be seated during performances. Please also be courteous to your neighbors when taking pictures. Photo taking is not allowed during autographing sessions nor during the photo ops. Only those people who have autograph tickets may come up to get autographs. At the Gold Exclusive Parties and Breakfast: photo taking is encouraged when the guests arrive (but only from your seats). After a sufficient time for all to get their photos we ask that your cameras be placed down so the celebrities can enjoy their time at the two food functions. Thank you for understanding the need to have these few rules so everyone is safe and has fun.
The vast majority of our guest celebrities take questions from the audience during their on-stage time. Therefore it is incumbent upon those that ask questions to make them ones that allow our mutual shared time with the celebrities to be enjoyable, interesting and entertaining for all (including the guest). Asking for hugs, telling stars we love them (we all do, that's why we're here), giving gifts, getting into long personal stories, or worse, is not acceptable for this format and, in fact, is quite self-centered when you are in essence "representing" all of fandom to a celebrity. Join us in trying to make this convention the best entertainment for everyone!
In the event of convention cancellations or date changes Creation Entertainment is not responsible for patrons' costs involving travel or hotel accommodations or any other non convention ticket expenses.
Advance ticket sales are generally turned off early to mid-week of the week of the events. Tickets, if they are not sold out, are sold at the convention of course.
Comic book and entertainment fans owe much to the legendary JACK KIRBY, the revered talent who co-created the Marvel mythology and made many early appearances with us, among his most devoted followers. Although his passing never allowed Jack to see the amazing success of his characters in film we do know that his appearances at conventions always brought down the house!
It is always great when we can personally thank a performer for an absolutely beautifully done job and that was just the treat when John Noble appeared in Feb of 2013 wrapping up his epic FRINGE series, one of our all-time favorite shows!
The beautiful and talented Alfre Woodard graced her stages to reminisce about her appearance in Star Trek as Lily in the movie Star Trek: First Contact, but of course she is best known for being an Academy Award and Grammy nominated actress as well as having an incredible 17 Emmy nominations (winning four).
Our Vegas Star Trek Convention is ALWAYS full of surprises! Sir Patrick Stewart joins William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy in this once in a lifetime moment! We're glad we were there!
In 2006, space pioneers, astronauts Wally Schirra and Alan Bean, guested at Grand Slam: it was an honor!

Three of the most popular actors on the planet graced our stages along with their The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn director: Bill Condon, Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner helped us make history at an official gan gathering done in conjunction with the press junket and in association with Summit Entertainment.
We even had time to publish 6 issues of a popular comic art fanzine called Infinity when we were teenagers. Back in the days before the internet printed fanzines and conventions helped keep fandom connected.
When we ran The Official STAR WARS Convention we brought in Gene Roddenberry as a surprise and this moment in time was a true highlight. Gene was a great mentor of ours and he is always in our thoughts, especially when we gather for our Official STAR TREK Conventions.
LOST was one of the great TV series of all-time and we were proud to be an official licensee for the show. Here three of the stars, Ian Somerhalder, Evangeline Lilly and Naveen Andrews, grace our stages in a Creation Convention appearance.
Two of our most popular celebrity guests from the Stargate franchise making their only Creation appearance together on stage: Michael Shanks and Amanda Tapping! We love following their careers post Stargate and look forward to enjoying their work for years to come!
How's this for cool? Arnold as THE Terminator at our Official T-2 Convention, an awesome occasion!
A VERY special moment in Creation History
BILL SHATNER & LEONARD NIMOY toasting the 40th Anniversary of Star Trek on the exact day, 4 decades later, that the original series began its TV run! Taken in Chicago at Creation's Salute to Star Trek's 40th! Thanks, Bill and Leonard for being such a big part of Creation Entertainment! Who would have thought that as kids that watched classic Trek, that one day we'd be working with these show biz legends!
History is made again at Creation when LEONARD NIMOY passes the ceremonial "#1 Vulcan" tee-shirt to the new Mr. Spock ZACHARY QUINTO. It all happened in front of the audience at Grand Slam XVI. Creation Conventions: it is ALL about making wonderful memories like this!
Superstar Legend Jack Nicholson made the "Creation" scene, a definite ultra-cool moment in our 40 plus year history!
Growing up watching THE AVENGERS was a particular joy so when Patrick Macnee joined the Creation line-up of stars it was a joyous occasion for us and his many fans!
It's never happened before or after but it was another of our proudest moments: having four STAR TREK Captains share the stage. Let's hope we can pull it off again some day and add a few more?
Long-time Creation friend (and early fan attendee turned superstar producer) DEAN DEVLIN brought along friends Hank Azaria and Harry Shearer to one of our shows. Dean is currently behind one of TV's greatest shows LEVERAGE!
The impeccable Ricardo Montalban created Star Trek's most popular villian as Khan but in person he truly was one of a kind and his two appearances for us were definitely amongst the most memorable! He is sorely missed by all Trekkers and was indeed a Hollywood classic himself!
Gracious and supportive to us as ever William Shatner made sure first time Creation guest star Joan Collins (in her only convention appearance) was comfortable on stage, reunited decades after their ultra-popular classic Trek appearance together!
As promised, a seat for all! Here's a scene of the amazing theatre we used for years for our Las Vegas Star Trek Convention. At Creation shows: no waiting and worrying about seeing the stars!
Pretty Cool we'd say to have welcomed the ultra talented Elijah Wood as Creation promoted several Official LORD OF THE RINGS events.
Here's some shots of Leonard Nimoy's last convention appearance (courtesy of Paul Harvath), taken at our Chicago 2011 Official STAR TREK Convention. Thank You Leonard for your three decade association with Creation: we've loved every minute of presenting you to your adoring fans (of which we number ourselves!):
These guys are HILARIOUS on stage together and we love having them at our events: true superstars of the genre: Jonathan Frakes (now busy directing) and Brent Spiner!

Official STAR TREK Convention
Friday, Saturday and Sunday
June 6 - June 8, 2014
The Westin O'Hare
6100 North River Road
Rosemont, Illinois 60018
It is our great thrill to present Creation Entertainment's OFFICIAL STAR TREK CONVENTION! For decades STAR TREK has LIVED largest in Chicago often holding enormous gatherings in the early years before the return of the series and the epic spin-offs and feature films. Midwest fans have much to be proud of and no one less than Gene Roddenberry himself gave credit to Trek fans for making his show the enduring legacy it has become, even ever stronger after his passing.
What a pleasing time for us, long time fans ourselves and protégées of Gene and Majel, to bring Gene's incredibly important humanist theories to a world that needs them now more than ever. The Chicago Convention is always one that makes history, and our two most recent events were highlighted by the emotional retirement of legendary Leonard Nimoy from conventions and another brought Sir Patrick Stewart and the entrie ST:TNG cast celebrating their 25th Anniversary.
Needless to say both were quick sell outs as "The Creation Difference" allows us ONLY to sell enough chairs in the main theatre so there is no hassles, no worry, and no waiting to see all the guests and events you want to! If you have attended all those other huge fan events in big concrete halls you know that we're out to deliver the VERY BEST vacation for you devoted to our first true genre love: STAR TREK! Here for three glorious days you will love hanging out with like minded folks who share Roddenberry's positive view of the future and celebration of diversity. Make YOUR plans now to be part of the fun! Our celebrity guest list is indeed incredible so far, with more to come. Here's who is tentatively set to appear(see below):
At the top of his game at the age of 83 Bill is truly an international icon beloved throughout the galaxy. Most famous as Captain Kirk, Bill has created scores of memorable characters including his multiple Emmy win for Denny Crane of Boston Legal. In person he is moving, hilarious, and thought provoking and you will leave uplifted and remember your time with Bill forever!
Appearing Saturday on stage for all daytime attendees!
This delightful actress changed the face of television when she became the first starring Captain of Star Trek: Voyager. Her convention stage performance often touches on the trade-offs she made to take this major role and this resonates with many women who have made her a role model. Simple stated we LOVE Kate!
(7 of 9)
The incredibly gorgeous and talented "7 of 9" of Star Trek Voyager really shook up the Trek world when she burst on the scene. Since then she has taken show biz by storm by never being off the air with regular starring roles in Body of Proof, Warehouse 13, Leverage, Shark, Boston Legal, The O.C, and Boston Public.
Jeri will be with us Sunday.
Bruce Greenwood (Captain Christopher Pike
in the new feature films Star Trek and Star Trek Into Darkness)
It truly is a special treat when we can present someone that is new to conventions. Bruce is celebrated for a nearly 40-year acting career, so along with Star Trek we're sure attendees will enjoy talking to him about his work on films and TV shows including Flight, National Treasure: Book of Secrets, Nowhere Man, The Core, Rules of Engagement, Knot's Landing, and St. Elsewhere.
Bruce will speak on stage Sunday and be available for photo ops. Photo Ops will be $40. Tentatively he will also have a table in the vendors room Friday through Sunday to meet fans and offer his autograph at a nominal fee.
(UHURA OF CLASSIC STAR TREK)
NICHELLE NICHOLS is the undisputed legendary First Lady of Star Trek. For almost fifty incredibly years she has brought a regal air to the role of Uhura which really had a life changing appeal to many around the globe. Certainly do not miss seeing Ms. Nichols in person and she'll no doubt relate meeting President Obama in The Oval Office where he admitted having a crush on her!
(One of our favorite guest stars Suzie always is a delight in person and at this show, using the highly amazing make-up talents of John Paladin Suzie will transform into K'Eylyr, Worf's mate-facial make up only!)
THE KLINGONS ARE COMING
After protracted and almost deadly negotiations (and trust us they didn't get hurt) we are proud to welcome legendary Klingons GOWRON and MARTOK (ROBERT O'REILLY and JG HERTZLER on stage as their famous characters. YOU must see this to believe it! Both are appearing Friday.
"Ensign Travis Mayweather of Star Trek: Enterprise" Anthony, one of the funniest and most talented of all Trek stars, will also have a table in the vendors room where he will meet fans and offer his autograph for a nominal fee directly to attendees.
He will be doing photo ops on Friday and Saturday as well and appearing on sage on Friday.
THE FERENGIS ARE COMING TOO!
Look out as two of the best known Ferengis make the scene in Chicago! ROM and NOG, MAX GRODENCHIK and ARON EISENBERG (Nog of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine) will be on hand throughout the weekend in the vendors room to meet fans and offer their autographs directly.
They will be appearing in costume on Saturday on stage and doing photo ops too!
(As the commanding leading man of Star Trek Voyager Robert has a legion of fans who are quite anxious to meet him in his very infrequent convention appearances)
Robert will be with us on Sunday on stage.
Talented make up maestro John will be responsible for taking the original actors Suzie Plazson, JG Herzler, Robert O'Reilly, Max Grodenchik and Aron Eisenberg and "transforming" them into their famed characters. What a great and innovative addition to our program and THANKS TO JOHN for his absolutely incredible work!

Creation assumes no responsibility for typographical errors or inaccurate information provided by convention venues. All dates, venues and guests are considered tentative and subject to change. Check back frequently for updates.
NOTE: ALL TICKETS ARE NON-REFUNDABLE AND NON-EXCHANGEABLE. ABSOLUTELY NO AUDIO OR VIDEOTAPING ALLOWED AT ANY CONVENTION. Still photography is for personal use only - public dissemination and commercial use strictly prohibited.
By attending Creation events you agree to allow your image to be used on our website and in news documentaries or stories, either filmed by Creation Entertainment or other entities.
All ticket prices are subject to change, please order as early as possible.
In the unlikely event of a cancellation of the convention, or a date change, Creation Entertainment is not responsible for refunding airfare or any other costs other than the payments made directly to Creation Entertainment for ticketing. Also in the unlikely event, due to weather, transit issues or last minute illness or other reason given by celebrity, an advertised guest does not make their appearance at the convention, Creation Entertainment is not responsible for any refunds other than separate specific to the guest autograph tickets or photo op tickets. In the extremely rare chance that a guest does not finish his or her autographs or photo ops (which has only happened in a hand full of cases over 40 plus years, always due to something out of our control) Creation Entertainment will only be responsible for the refund of the separate autograph or photo op ticket.
In the extremely rare case (which has never happened before) our computer systems may accept more tickets than we have allotted for. If that should occur we would refund ticket money to the last several people (in order) who did manage to get a confirmation or ticket. As we've said it has never happened but we want to have a fair scenario in place it if does occur.
