CLICK HERE to cast your vote, and once we tabulate, we’ll announce the results at a special panel on SUNDAY with some of our top Star Trek experts breaking it down. Your voices will be heard, and the results are sure to be controversial so be on hand to be part of the fun!

Science Panels

Dr. Mohamed Noor is professor of biology and Dean of Natural Sciences at Duke University, along with being a contracted science consultant for the Star Trek universe. He merges his passions by teaching biology concepts using depictions from Star Trek in the classroom, in writings, in online videos, and in-person presentations at conventions.

Dr. Mohamed Noor

He’ll be conducting three fascinating panels, talking about how real-life science equates with the Star Trek universe (day and times TBD):  
Panel 1: Why Are There So Many Humanoids on Star Trek? An Evolutionary Perspective
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. Noor. 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!  

Panel 2: Genetics, Ancestry, Race, and Star Trek
In real life and throughout Star Trek, we hear about "DNA" and "genetic tests" all the time. How do these work? Come have a primer on basic transmission and genetic ancestry testing with Dr. Mohamed Noor, learn many of the fundamental concepts, and see how these concepts get applied in the Star Trek universe across the various series.  

Panel 3: BioTrekkie with the Admiral: Jayne Brook and Dr. Noor on Star Trek: Discovery
Following their YouTube mini-series earlier this year, actress Jayne Brook ("Admiral Cornwell") and science adviser Dr. Mohamed Noor talk about Star Trek: Discovery-- the real science and more!

Dr. David A. Williams is a Research Professor in the School of Earth and Space Exploration at Arizona State University. A planetary geologist, David was involved with NASA’s Magellan Mission to Venus, Galileo Mission to Jupiter, Dawn Mission to asteroid Vesta and dwarf planet Ceres, and ESA’s Mars Express orbiter mission.  He is currently Deputy Imager Lead on NASA’s Psyche Mission, scheduled to launch in 2022.  David is a Fellow of the Geological Society of America, and the International Astronomical Union named asteroid (10,461) DAWILLIAMS in his honor.

Dr. David Williams

Here are details on his panels (day and times TBD):
Panel 1: Titan - The Past and Future Exploration of Saturn’s Largest Moon
  Many discoveries resulted from the NASA Cassini Saturn orbiter’s study of its moon Titan:  hydrocarbon lakes, rivers, and oceans, a thick atmosphere with changing clouds and rain, long, linear sand dunes, and evidence of cryo- (cold) volcanism. But many new questions have arisen: Could this ocean world, with its rich atmosphere of organics, be an abode for life? NASA is building an aerial rotocraft called Dragonfly to explore Titan in the next decade. Join ASU Professor David Williams to discuss all things Titan, as well as the capabilities of the first aerial rover of another world.

Panel 2: Class L, K, or M? Exploring the Strange New Worlds of Our Solar System through NASA’s Planetary Missions
All the Star Trek TV series and movies have visited a wide variety of strange, new worlds, many Earth-like (Class M), but others very different: ice worlds, volcano worlds, gas worlds, and more. How do they compare with the worlds in our own Solar System? Join planetary science professor David Williams, a veteran of many NASA planetary missions, and Deputy Lead for the camera on NASA’s upcoming Psyche mission to a metal world, for a discussion of the latest results from our exploration of the Solar System and it’s many diverse planets, moons, and asteroids. This presentation will include a look ahead to planetary missions coming in the decade of the 2020s.

Along with her role in TOS, she also outsmarted Secret Agent Maxwell Smart with her outrageous disguise as Charlie Watkins, spied on the Girl from U.N.C.L.E., came between TV's Batman & Robin, put the sting back in the Green Hornet, showed partner Bruce Lee (as Kato) a few fast moves, headlined a bunch of sci-fi movies as an unforgettably sexy siren, was picked up as a hooker on the top-rated Hill Street Blues, and proved that women over 40 were shagadelic, baby! She was also a Las Vegas Showgirl, exotic dancer, model, femme fatales, scream queen, comedian, Playboy pin-up, suburban house-wife, and friend. During her thirty-year career in show business, Angelique Pettyjohn always lit up the stage or screen with her splashy personality and sexy good looks in over 40 movies, twelve television series, and twenty Las Vegas shows.

DeForest Kelley Theatre Header

We welcome you into our secondary ballroom, The DeForest Kelley Theatre, which will hold additional programming and panels more attuned to behind the camera. 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.)

Vendors FAQ

CE Difference Header

We’ve been proud to present convention gatherings for our fellow fans in North America for an 50 incredible years. It’s been a wonderful ride that allowed us to enjoy our love of the genre with others who share that passion. We’ve tried to follow the beliefs of our mentor Gene Roddenberry by creating events that present a positive view of the future celebrating diversity and inclusiveness. We hope you join us in Las Vegas as this human adventure continues.

We’ve taken our decades long experiences to provide what we believe is the absolute best presentation for our fellow fans. Unlike so many other genre conventions, 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 seat in the main auditorium where the major guests appear and events take place. Because of this process of not overselling we have a huge vendors room where it is possible to easily check out each booth without fighting seam-busting crowds.  And we love the fact that The Rio convention facilities are state of the art and comfortable to be in.

Close the doors on the outside world and join thousands of like-minded fans to honor Gene’s vision for the future while partying like it is 2364!


In general, questions for our celebrities are taken from the audience at microphones in the front of the audience area. Yelling of questions from the audience is disruptive and rude to everyone present and may result in being asked to leave the theatre and convention. We ask that everyone respect their fellow attendees.

What you should know...

Here is some pertinent information for you to have about Creation’s conventions, certain policies and more.


All guests and scheduling are tentative and subject to change. Creation Entertainment does not advertise any talent without written permission from the talent or their representation. 

Please do not come for just one actor. Our events are a celebration of the series and multiple actors from the show attend. If we have a cancelation, we will do our best to book a replacement or we will provide our Gold/Silver patrons with a pre-signed photo of the actor not in attendance if the canceled actor was signing for Gold/Silver.

In the event of a guest cancellation or a date change: 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 well as a personal conflict. Our events will take place whether a specific guest cancels or not and therefore we cannot issue admission pass refunds if a particular guest is not able to attend. If a guest must cancel their appearance at the convention, Creation Entertainment is not responsible for any refunds other than the a la carte specific-to-the-guest autograph or photo op tickets as another guest will be booked as a replacement in signing for Gold/Silver or a pre-signed photo will be provided if a replacement signer is not possible. Also, in the extremely rare chance that an actor does not finish his or her autographs or photo ops (which has only happened in a hand full of cases due to something out of our control), we will only be responsible for the refund of the a la carte autograph or photo op ticket if not redeemed. We will refund or issue a credit voucher only for a la carte photo ops and autograph tickets for a specific actor if they cancel. 

Creation is also not be held responsible for any financial loss associated with the purchase of air tickets or hotel rooms that are not canceled (virtually all hotels offer a 24 or 48-hour cancelation policy, so there should be no jeopardy associated with reservations). We highly recommend you purchase travel insurance for any unforeseen issues.

Disease and Illness Disclaimer: By using your admission pass, you recognize that disease and illness, including, but not limited to, the coronavirus (COVID-19) and the common cold, may be spread through interaction with other people.  Creation Events programs may be attended by many, sometimes numbering in the hundreds.  Social distancing and other measures at these events is very difficult, if not impossible, to practice and enforce.  Therefore, you agree that you will not purchase an event admission pass if you know you have symptoms of COVID-19 or any other communicable disease or illness, or you have a high risk of contracting or suffering from one, and you certify that you do not have any reason to believe that you have been exposed to or could be a carrier of any disease or illness.  If you do attend, you agree that you will take all possible steps to protect your health and the health of others attending the event.  You further agree that, by using an admission pass and attending, you thereby waive any claim of liability you might make against Creation Entertainment, Inc. or its officers, directors, employees and agents as a result of your contracting disease or illness from attending one of our events, and you agree that you will indemnify, defend and hold harmless Creation Entertainment, Inc. and its officers, directors, employees and agents against any loss that any of them may suffer or be obligated to pay as a result of any claim that may be made against any of them by others, as a result of your attending the event, including, but not limited to, legal damages, attorney's fees and court costs.  If you are unsure of your status, please consult with your doctor before purchasing an event admission pass. You further agree that should Creation Events in its sole opinion believe that you may pose a threat to the health of others, it may deny you admission or request that you leave the event and that you understand and accept all risks that your attendance may encounter.

This convention is intended for adults. On stage appearances by our guests may include off-color or inappropriate humor and profanity. Children are welcome if accompanied by an adult who is aware of the potential content. The views and opinions expressed by any talent or participant at, or during the convention are those of the authors and/or the persons appearing on stage, and do not necessarily reflect the views and opinions of Creation Entertainment, LLC or any of their affiliated parties.

Harassment at events: Creation does not tolerate any forms of harassment or bullying at its events. The company’s complete policy is stated on each schedule of events that is handed out at each convention. If you witness bad behavior at an event, immediately notify the contact listed on the rules page of your printed schedule and there is Creation staff present at all times. We cannot do anything about complaints that come after the event is over.

Team Members: We are so grateful and fortunate to have the support of our Team Members, whose continued efforts and dedication help make our conventions possible.  They are available to assist you with any questions you may have about convention events and activities, however if you have an issue, please ask to speak to Management on-site.  Check your schedule rules page to see which manager is on-site at your specific event. If you would like to submit an application to be considered as a Team Member, please visit our Jobs/Team Members section of our website by clicking here.

For those attending our conventions and making travel plans: Please know that many of the headliners who appear onstage on Sunday usually do so towards the later part of the day. Autograph signings can run into the evening until 9:00PM-10:00PM. For those traveling from out of town, we suggest staying over until Monday in order to get your autographs and the full convention experience. Creation is not responsible for any costs associated with travel for any attendee. We highly suggest you purchase travel insurance in the event that anything should happen.  

We are not responsible for orders that are rejected during processing: On rare occasion, an error may occur during the ordering process that can require the order to be resubmitted. This can include: Incomplete form submission (usually caused by not completing the entire ordering process to the very end); Credit card failures (usually caused when there are not enough funds in an account or the credit card company rejects the charge for any number of reasons including out of state, international or unfamiliar ordering to the customers’ general pattern); or system errors during transmission of the order. 

We suggest buying admission passes and a la carte tickets only through this website: Because all PDFs are scanned for use at the convention, we can ONLY allow the first person in using each singular PDF. Autograph and photo op PDFs are also scanned for one-time use. PLEASE BE CAREFUL! Tickets that are not valid or deemed fraudulent will not be accepted. 

All admission pass and a la carte ticket prices are subject to change at any time, so please order as early as possible. 

Admission pass packages do not include photo ops: Photo ops must be purchased separately on this website or at the convention (if not sold out). 

NOTE: You may buy an a la carte Autograph and/or Photo Op ticket(s) before buying an Admission pass, but you need an Admission pass for the day of your Autograph or Photo Op in order to use the Autograph and Photo Op tickets at the convention (unless the guest has changed days). Please buy an Admission pass for the day of your Photo Op or Autograph as soon as you can as we can’t guarantee Admission passes won't sell out before the show. Please, absolutely, do not ask for exceptions to this rule.   

Alcoholic beverages at the convention: At most of our events, we do not allow alcohol to be present in our function rooms, including the main theatre. This includes daily panel events, meet & greets and any night events. Water stations will be available in the room. We reserve the right to perform bag checks at any time. We reserve the right to deny entrance into any of the events to anyone who appears intoxicated. If there is an instance of alcoholic beverages sold, your ID will be checked by the bartender and any underage customers will not be served any alcoholic beverages. Creation is not responsible for the alcohol consumption of others.

Weapons policy: Please do not bring any weapons to the show. If you are using a prop weapon for a photo op or as part of the cosplay contest, please bring it to registration to get tagged. After your photo op or cosplay contest is over, please do not have your prop weapon on the convention floor at any time. Prop weapons without tags will not be allowed at any time.

Lost or misplaced items: We are not responsible for lost or misplaced items. We cannot replace a la carte Autograph or Photo Op tickets that are purchased at the convention, so PLEASE make sure your PDFs and hard tickets are kept in a safe place. 

ADA Rules on service animals: This event welcomes service animals as per ADA rules. Service animals perform valuable work or tasks and are trained to provide help directly related to a person's disability. Dogs whose sole function is to provide comfort or emotional support do not qualify as service animals under the ADA and therefore are not permitted at our event. 

Photo taking policy at this convention: We know that taking photos makes the convention even more fun. In the main theatre, 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 photo ops.

Audio or video capture for personal use is allowed except in certain circumstances: Photography and audio or video capture are for personal use only - public dissemination and commercial use strictly prohibited. If there is a time where we cannot allow audio or video capturing of the Q&As, we will advise in advance. AUDIO/VIDEO CAPTURING IS NOT ALLOWED DURING AUTOGRAPHS, PHOTO OPS AND SOME MEET & GREETS. LIVE STREAMING IS NOT ALLOWED AT ANY TIME. 

Unsanctioned raffles and fundraisers are not allowed at Creation events.

Flashes from phone and cameras occur often during stage presentations:
 If you are sensitive to such lighting please be advised to take the necessary precautions. For our attendees, please keep flash photography to a minimum.

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. 

Please do not bring latex balloons of any sort to any of our events: We have had attendees with latex allergies and bursting balloons can be hazardous to people at short range. 

Medical emergencies:  If you have a medical emergency and you do not have a caretaker with you, hotel security or 911 will be called to assist you.  

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. Join our email list for updates. 

Customer support: ANY problem you have please write to us at: Customer service hours are Monday-Friday, 9:00am-4:30pm Pacific time. If you have an issue over the weekend pertaining to a show that is happening that same weekend, please go in-person to the convention registration desk for assistance. Requests sent to Customer Service over the weekend may not be received until the Monday after the convention is over.
