Creation Entertainment's
50 YEAR MISSION TOUR
Celebrating Gene Roddenberry’s legacy to us all, starring WILLIAM SHATNER celebrating the 50th Anniversary of STAR TREK with an amazing roster of other celebrities!

CHICAGO, IL
Friday, Saturday and Sunday
September 9 - 11, 2016*

THE WESTIN O'HARE
6100 North River Road
Rosemont, Illinois 60018

*Note: Traditionally we do a pre-registration for full three day weekend patrons as well as a vendors room preview the night prior to the convention so fans can get set with their credentials on a non-convention night. Pre-Registration is not a necessity, just a convenience, and remains tentative until we get closer to the event. Generally convention days run from about 10 am to 7pm (times are tentative until we have guest flight info and the final schedule is posted by the Wednesday prior to the convention) with an evening show on Friday (this time The Star Trek Rat Pack Nightclub Act which is fantastic) and a Karaoke Party which is free to all on Saturday Night.

DON'T FORGET TO USE THE OFFICIAL HASHTAG
ON TWITTER, FACEBOOK, AND INSTAGRAM!

 

It’s hard to believe that 50 years ago Gene Roddenberry’s incredible legacy of STAR TREK was born on American television and made show business history while also having a long-standing cultural impact and influencing countless people to pursue careers in science, technology and medicine. Creation Entertainment, which has proudly produced Star Trek Conventions for well over three decades, is immensely happy to be able to present a once in a lifetime event for fellow fans saluting one of our true mentors, Gene Roddenberry, in a gathering we’ve aptly named “The 50 Year Mission Tour”.

Seating is limited for this event as we do not sell ONE ticket more than we have seats for in our main theatre. That means that EVERYONE in attendance is guaranteed a seat to see all the stars without extra waiting or worry, but it also means that these 50th Anniversary events will be early sell-outs. Make your plans NOW to join the stars for this very special occasion! We’re honored to welcome headliner William Shatner joined by an incredible roster of other Star Trek celebrities, making this what we hope will be the very best Star Trek Convention ever to hit the area!

Be sure of which day a guest is doing photo ops/autographs before purchasing your admission tickets.

At this particular convention along with other appearances, Richard will take part in our salute to his departed friend, and indeed friend to all of us, Leonard Nimoy, on Friday.
THE CREATION DIFFERENCE

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.

Star Trek New Series

CBS Television Studios announced today it will launch a totally new Star Trek television series in January 2017. The new series will blast off with a special preview broadcast on the CBS Television Network. The premiere episode and all subsequent first-run episodes will then be available exclusively in the United States on CBS All Access, the Network’s digital subscription video on demand and live streaming service.

The next chapter of the Star Trek franchise will also be distributed concurrently for television and multiple platforms around the world by CBS Studios International.

The new program will be the first original series developed specifically for U.S. audiences for CBS All Access, a cross-platform streaming service that brings viewers thousands of episodes from CBS’s current and past seasons on demand, plus the ability to stream their local CBS Television station live for $5.99 per month. CBS All Access already offers every episode of all previous Star Trek television series.

The brand-new Star Trek will introduce new characters seeking imaginative new worlds and new civilizations, while exploring the dramatic contemporary themes that have been a signature of the franchise since its inception in 1966.

WE ARE VERY MUCH LOOKING FORWARD TO THIS BRAND NEW INCARNATION OF STAR TREK: WE CAN’T WAIT TO SEE WHAT YOU HAVE TO SAY AT OUR AUDIENCE PARTICIPATION EVENT SCHEDULED FOR SATURDAY.

Leonard Nimoy
Leonard Nimoy
(1931-2015)

Our Chicago 50th Anniversary Convention is lovingly dedicated to the memory of Leonard Nimoy, the man who inspired generations of fans to go into the world of science and therefore his endless contributions will truly never end. We are proud to have called him our friend and business colleague for decades and in that vein we will present an audiovisual presentation and memories of the man and his career hosted by Adam Malin. Our proud achievement is the fact that hundreds of thousands of Mr. Nimoy’s worldwide fans had the opportunity to meet this gigantic talent in person at Creation Conventions.

Set for FRIDAY, please join us to share our memories and offer your own.

John Tenuto Lectures

John Tenuto

GUEST LECTURER JOHN TENUTO has three special panels planned for the Chicago Convention:

50 Years of Star Trek: The Original Series Collectibles. Celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Star Trek: The Original Series with a fun and trivia-filled presentation that journeys from the earliest days of Star Trek collectibles to recent releases. Learn about the earliest Star Trek TOS items available for fans in 1966/67, see photographs of never released prototypes and amazing unusual/rare items from around the world, how collectibles and toys were used in the production of episodes and even influenced certain episodes, and the role that collectibles played in helping Star Trek return to the mainstream.

A 30th Anniversary Tribute to Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home One of Star Trek's most popular and enduring films, The Voyage Home, celebrates its 30th Anniversary in 2016. Through early drafts of scripts, production memos, and rare photographs, learn about the making of this important film and celebrate the contributions of the behind the scenes artists who made the movie so special. Thanks to Nicholas Meyer, Dan Madsen, and the Monterey Bay Aquarium for permission to share some of the special materials in this presentation.

50 Years of Guest Characters: Origins and Versions From Khan to R'uafo, from Harry Mudd to Carol Marcus - some of the most popular icons of Star Trek were the guest characters who helped or hindered our heroes. Through production memos, early versions of scripts, interviews, and rare behind the scenes images, learn about Star Trek's most popular and important guest icons, and about the writers, directors, and actors who made them so memorable. Learn about how and why the original, intended versions of the characters were changed during pre-production into the final versions we see in episodes and feature films.

Music Video Contest

STAR TREK MUSIC VIDEO COMPETITION

Show your creativity as a video producer by contributing a "music video" for the convention. The best submissions will be screened at the convention in the big theatre and are often used to introduce our guest stars.

Entries can not be returned, and person submitting entry is granting Creation the right to play this entry in perpetuity at Creation events worldwide and/or on line at the Creation website(s). Creation does not sell music videos so your entry will never be sold as a commercial product, just presented at our events/on line. (WE ARE PARTICULARLY INTERESTED IN VIDEOS SALUTING SOME OF THE SUPPORTING CHARACTERS AT OUR EVENTS SO WE CAN INTRODUCE THEM WITH VIDEOS, SO PLEASE KEEP THIS IN MIND!)

Winners will receive a $100 gift certificate good for Creation Merchandise (Creation merchandise only, excludes convention, autograph and photo-op tickets). If you want to know if we received your submission please send In your video using order confirmation or signature required. We do not announce winners until the event. Thanks and good luck!

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.

Due to security considerations and guest concerns we cannot facilitate the giving of gifts to guests at the photo op sessions. LIMIT OF TWO FANS PER PHOTO-OP, NO EXCEPTIONS PLEASE! TWO FANS CAN BE IN THE PHOTO OP FOR THE PRICE OF ONE PHOTO OP TICKET.

One of the coolest experiences at the convention is having your photo taken with famous Star Trek celebrities. Creation Entertainment's staff photographers are acknowledged as the best by far in the fan field and we make both our attendees and the celebrities feel super comfortable. So get yourself ready for a souvenir simply like no other. Limit of up to TWO fans per photo op. No gift giving is allowed at the photo op sessions.

Leave time to tour around the gorgeous city, we loved doing this the last time we were there. Seeing these cities is indeed a true highlight of coming to the convention towns and we hope many also take the chance to explore these great areas we come to! It is also pretty special to just go up to your room to catch a quick nap, relax a bit, or better yet party! Up to you!

 

Westin at night Westin Rooms

Shows start about 10 or 11 in the morning and run till about 6 or 7 at night. But they can start earlier and/or end later if necessary to accommodate an actor’s schedule for autographing and photo ops. The hour-by-hour schedule is posted late in the afternoon (California time) on the Wednesday before the convention.

All guests and scheduling are tentative and subject to change.
