NEWS AND STORIES FROM THE STAR TREK UNIVERSE!


Pike and Spock Get Their Own Star Trek Series


We’re going to see just how Captain Pike (Anson Mount) and Spock (Ethan Peck), along with Number One (Rebecca Romijn), explore space together on the USS Enterprise

CBS All Access announced a straight-to-series order for Star Trek: Strange New Worlds, which follows the trio in the decade before Capt. Kirk boarded the Enterprise as they explore new worlds around the galaxy.


Pike and Spike

New Trek guru Alex Kurtzman will oversee the new drama. "When we said we heard the fans' outpouring of love for Pike, Number One and Spock when they boarded Star Trek: Discovery last season, we meant it," said Kurtzman in a statement. "These iconic characters have a deep history in Star Trek canon, yet so much of their stories has yet to be told. With Akiva and Henry at the helm, the Enterprise, its crew and its fans are in for an extraordinary journey to new frontiers in the Star Trek universe."

As part of the grand scale Star Trek programming on CBS All Access, this new series joins already established series Discovery, going into its third season, and Picard, which premiered its first season earlier this year.

There is also the forthcoming animated series Lower Decks, and in development Section 31, starring Michelle Yeoh as Philippa Georgiou.

Good times ahead for Star Trek fans!


Creation Remembers René Auberjonois and Robert Walker Jr.
We joined the Star Trek family in mourning the recent passing of René Auberjonois and Robert Walker Jr.

Rene Auberjonois

The talented René Auberjonois had a long and illustrious career in theater, film and television. In film, he starred in movies such as Robert Altman’s McCabe & Mrs. Miller and M*A*S*H, on TV in shows such as Benson and The Practice, for which he received an Emmy nomination for both shows, and earned a Tony award for his starring role in Broadway musical Coco.

To Trekkers, however, René will always be known as Odo, the observant head of security on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. René was a constant and beloved guest at many of our annual Star Trek conventions, bringing his wit and intelligence to the stage, regaling wonderful stories about his time in the Star Trek galaxy and being so gracious to thousands of fans.


Robert Walker Jr.

We are also saddened by the passing of Robert Walker Jr., who starred in the iconic TOS episode “Charlie X,” playing a naïve young man who wreaks havoc on the Enterprise with his extraordinary – and very dangerous – powers. Walker Jr. also starred in films such as Easy Rider and TV shows like Ensign Pulver. Robert made a rare appearance in Pasadena at our then annual grand-slam show. He was kind and generous to the fans who showed up to see him.

RIP to these two iconic members of Star Trek history; we will greatly miss them.


DC Fontana

Creation Remembers Star Trek Writer D.C. Fontana
Dorothy Catherine “D.C.” Fontana, the trailblazing writer who penned some of Star Trek’s favorite episodes and helped create a path for female writers in the sci-fi genre, passed away on December 2 at age 80.

Writing for Star Trek: The Original Series, D.C. was known for her episodes about the Vulcan culture, including “Journey to Babel,” which introduced Spock’s Vulcan father Sarek and human mother Amanda. She also co-wrote the Hugo Award nominated The Next Generation episode “Encounter at Farpoint” with Gene Rodenberry, and she continued to write for TNG and Deep Space Nine. Her last produced Star Trek credit was an episode of web series Star Trek: New Voyages, starring Walter Koenig. Read more at StarTrek.com.

D.C. will always remain a huge influence in Star Trek history and in the hearts of the thousands of fans she was gracious to at our annual Star Trek conventions.

Creation Remembers Star Trek Family Members Aron Eisenberg, Jack Donner and Sid Haig


Eisenberg Donner Haig


Creation Entertainment joins our Trek family around the world in mourning the loss of Aron Eisenberg, Jack Donner and Sid Haig this past weekend.

Best known for playing Nog from Star Trek: Deep Space Nine – and the first Ferengi to join Starfleet -- Aron was a beloved favorite at our Star Trek conventions through the years and always gave generous time to the fans. He would appear in makeup and costume as Nog on-stage and pose for photo ops (with DS9 stars Max Grodenchik as Nog’s father, Rom, and Chase Masterson as Leeta) and always brought an amazing energy to the stage! Along with his recurring role on Deep Space Nine, Aron was also a filmmaker and professional photographer, who shot landscapes, concerts, corporate photography, portraits and more.

For Star Trek fans, Jack is known for portraying Romulan Sub-Commander Tal on Star Trek: The Original Series and later played a Vulcan priest in the Star Trek: Enterprise. Other television shows he has guest-starred in include The Man from U.N.C.L.E., Mission: Impossible, Kojak, Frasier, Charmed, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Malcolm in the Middle and Roswell, and he was also an acting teacher. Jack enjoyed attending our events and always lovingly spoke of the time he spent with his fans.

Sid Haig was a legend in the horror genre for starring in films such as House of 1,000 Corpses and The Devil’s Rejects, but Star Trek fans also know him as the First Lawmaker in The Original Series episode "The Return of the Archons." Haig also appeared in Quentin Tarantino’s Jackie Brown and would later re-team with the filmmaker on Kill Bill, Vol. 2. Other credits to Haig’s name include Night of the Living Dead 3D and 2007’s Halloween. Sid was a beloved friend who also graced the stages of our Fangoria Weekend of Horrors events for many years.

RIP Aron, Jack and Sid -- you will remain always a part of the Star Trek and Creation family and in the hearts of the thousands of fans you were so gracious to at our events.

Creation Remembers Trek Fan Favorite Barbara March


Duras Sisters


We were saddened to hear the news that Barbara March, who played the fierce and malevolent Klingon Lursa, has passed away at the age of 65 after a battle with cancer.

Along with her sister B’Etor (played by Gwyneth Walsh), March’s Lursa caused much mayhem on Star Trek shows such as Star Trek: The Next Generation and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. The character was also featured in the feature film Star Trek: Generations.

March was also an accomplished stage actress, having portrayed such classic Shakespearean women as Lady Macbeth and others in theater productions in Los Angeles, New York and her home country of Canada. She also wrote plays, poems and novellas.

Her husband, Alan Scarfe, who was also a Star Trek guest star, confirmed her passing on Facebook. He wrote in the post, "My beloved Barbara, my partner in all things for more than forty years, passed through eternity's gate yesterday evening after a cruel battle with cancer. She was wise and compassionate and beautiful and her brilliance, kindness and perspicacity touched many."  

March will always remain a part of Star Trek history and in the hearts of the thousands of fans she was gracious to at our annual Star Trek conventions.

WOW, it is hard to believe that we have been producing conventions for our fellow fans for 47 incredible years and what a ride it has been. Thanks to our fellow fans, we’ve loved bringing the stars direct to their audiences; and the tradition has continued and indeed been amped up greatly by our SUPERNATURAL CONVENTIONS. Join the celebration and be part of the unforgettable SPN family. 

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. 

Creation Entertainment has the right to refuse service to anyone who interferes with the safety and well-being of other patrons, staff, actors, Creation Entertainment and the establishment itself. This includes, but is not limited to, harassment of any kind both in advance and/or at a particular event, illegal activity, unreasonable rowdiness, patrons lacking adequate hygiene and inconsideration to others. Refusal of service shall never be based on race or color, National origin or citizenship status, religion or creed, sex, age, disability, pregnancy or genetic information, Veteran or Military status, marital status, sexual orientation or gender identity, medical condition, political affiliations or activities, or status as a victim of domestic violence, assault or stalking.

 

What you should know...

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

ADMISSION TICKETS ARE NON-REFUNDABLE AND NON-EXCHANGEABLE

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. 

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 ticket or ticket package 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 separate guest autograph tickets or photo op tickets. 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 and always due to something out of our control), we will only be responsible for the refund of the separate autograph or photo op ticket. We will refund or issue a credit voucher for separately purchased photo ops and autograph tickets for a specific actor if they cancel. 

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 you with a pre-signed photo of an actor not in attendance.

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.

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. We cannot do anything about it if complaints 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 do 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 tickets only through this website: Because all tickets are scanned for use at the convention, we can ONLY allow the first person in using each singular ticket. Autograph and photo op tickets are also scanned for one-time use. PLEASE BE CAREFUL! 

All ticket prices are subject to change at any time, so please order as early as possible. 

Admission ticket packages do not include photo ops: Photo ops must be purchased separately on this site or at the convention (if not sold out). NOTE: You may buy Photo Op and Autograph tickets before buying an Admission ticket, but you need an Admission ticket for the day of your Photo Op or Autograph in order to use the Photo Op and Autograph tickets at the convention (unless the guest has changed days). Please buy an Admission ticket for the day of your Photo Op or Autograph as soon as you can as we can’t guarantee Admission tickets 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 autograph or photo op tickets that are purchased at the convention, so PLEASE make sure your 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, we will advise in advance. LIVE STREAMING IS NOT ALLOWED AT ANY TIME. 

Raffles/Fundraising: 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 additionally 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. Check back frequently for updates. 

Customer support: ANY problem you have please write to us at: customer.service@creationent.com. Customer service hours are Monday-Friday, 9am-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.
