Hyatt Regency SFO

It’s truly amazing to us to see STAR TREK vibrant and growing as it has now passed its incredible 50th Anniversary. Feature films with a wonderful cast continue and of course we have a brand new upcoming television series (finally) to enjoy.
The merchandising campaign and products have never been better and the world has grown to love STAR TREK and its themes more and more over time. We’re proud of our association with this property that stretches back decades and honors the memory of our early career mentors and friends including Gene Roddenberry and Leonard Nimoy.
The BAY AREA has always been a great place for us to bring our events and always turns out in droves to welcome our celebrities who are part of the franchise we’ve all taken to our hearts.
With the famed “Creation Difference”, every patron, no matter what type of ticket they purchase, is guaranteed a seat in the theatre. Our goal is to give YOU the absolute very best vacation we can!

We are very honored to be screening for our audiences the last convention appearance of Leonard NImoy, which took place in Chicago where Mr. Nimoy was surrounded by his family and some of his greatest fans. We know you will find this film incredibly moving, and we thank Leonard’s family for allowing us to show it. Day of screening to be SUNDAY.
WARP II IS OUR HOUSE BAND BOTH DAYS ON STAGE TO INTRO GUESTS AND AMP UP THE CONVENTION EXCITMENT!
Warp 11 is not easily classified. At first glance, their torn Federation uniforms might lead you to believe it’s all just a farce. But Warp 11 is no parody band. They play serious original music amplifying the raw energy of Green Day, the wit of Weezer and the hard driving tradition of AC/DC into fresh songs they beam directly into your positronic matrix.
Warp 11 is also not a tribute band. While the band members are astute Sci-Fi and Fantasy fans, fully engaging in the occasional D&D game, their music is too honest and original to be considered a tribute. Instead, Warp 11 lyrics are clever social commentary on the impacts of genre media franchises - a humorous look that is both celebratory and playfully self-deprecating.
Based in Northern California, the band members spent years in several local punk and hard rock bands honing their musical chops. Their rock-god prowess is demonstrated at packed live gigs where the band has built a strong, loyal following. Their latest release (CD number seven in their arsenal) is entitled “Rock Out With Your Spock Out” and continues their long-standing tradition of Star Trek inspired Rock N’ Roll.
One of the coolest highlights of the convention in CHICAGO is the running of fan produced Music Videos honoring STAR TREK, its themes. legacy and characters. If you are a talented video editor now is your chance to show off your creativity
and vie for prizes at the SAN FRANCISCO Continuing Voyages Convention.

Autograph and Photo Op Tickets do not include admission to the convention. You must have an admission ticket for the convention in order to redeem autograph and photo op tickets. Photography is not allowed during the autograph sessions. One of the coolest things about the convention is the chance to get in person autographs on the item of your choice (you can bring something from home or purchase a photo or souvenir at the convention). At this particular show, due to popular demand, many of the stars will be present throughout the majority of the weekend, at tables in the vendors room, where you can purchase your autographs directly from them. Those stars participating in that way are noted below. THANKS!
Please note that autographing often runs after the closing times of the theatre, although many of our guests are now signing at tables in the vendors area
KARL URBAN: at his table, day(s) to be announced. He has chosen to charge $60 an autograph and his signature is included in Gold Packages. Just bring your GOLD LANYARD CARD up to Karl’s table and he will sign an item for you as part of your Gold Package: you can’t beat meeting one of world’s leading genre stars and getting an in person autograph at the same time! At this moment it is unsure whether his ticket will be included in Silver. When that is announced, we will see. OF COURSE all others are welcomed to purchase his autograph too!

UPDATED JPEG ORDERING INFORMATION CLICK FOR DETAILS!
With tentative preregistration OCTOBER 13 night time. This is a convenience, not a necessity. It is for all those coming as Gold, Silver, Copper or General Admission Weekend. You can pick up your printed schedules, grab any available autograph and photo op tickets and check out our vendors room which is generally open. A more complete schedule, obviously, will be available at this site by the Wednesday prior to the convention, but generally we begin our program at about 10 AM Saturday to about 6pm with the night time show to follow, and Sunday goes from 10 am to about 6pm. Sometimes autographs run considerably later than these closing times.
Note that actual times for the convention usually are about 11am to 6:30pm on Friday, 10am to 6 PM Saturday, with evening Next Generation Reunion Panel early evening, and Sunday 10 am to 6 PM. These times are tentative of course because they become dependent on the actors’ itineraries and flight schedules and we don’t get those until the last week or two. We alway post the complete schedule here Weds. afternoon Pacific Time prior to the convention, and we most often do pre-registraiton (not a necessity, but a convenience) to get our full package holders credentials the night before (and also vendors room preview, early crack at autographs, photo ops, etc. that are still available and/or available through Creation)
All guests and scheduling are tentative and subject to 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 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.
We are not responsible for orders that are rejected during processing that may be due to customer errors (usually caused because the customer does not complete the entire ordering process to the very end), credit card failures (usually caused when there is not enough funds in an account or the credit card company rejects the charge for any number of reasons including out of state ordering or unfamiliar ordering to the customers’ general pattern), or system errors during transmission of the order.
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.
