Five Decades of Love & Progress
Diversity. Inclusion. Hope. Positivity.
The 2019 Convention is indeed a five-day and night celebration of all the various incarnations of Star Trek that have touched all our lives and changed society in ways no one could have predicted or truly known.
The photo above taken at a recent awards ceremony symbolizes what we are working on with our partners to make the 2019 gathering even better. Watch this page as we begin to add to our events. Convening with thousands of fans is just part of continuing the legacy of our mentor Gene Roddeberry. As this is the place to honor the galaxy represented by the Star Trek canon, we are thinking of this theme as we begin to put together our fantastic line-up.
Star Trek fans have known and loved Brent Spiner for his portrayal as Data on The Next Generation – and now fans from all over the world can spend an evening with Brent in a whole new way!
Presenting for the first time in Las Vegas in its entirety, this very special Saturday Night Gala features Brent performing a selection of songs with his live band. It will be an experience attendees will never forget, but don’t take our word for it -- here’s what Brent has to say about it!!
“This show is great! Brent Spiner is my favorite performer!”- Brent Spiner
The Saturday Night Gala is included on a complimentary basis for GOLD, CAPTAIN’S CHAIR or COPPER Package patrons who can keep their same seats they had during the day.
For those who do not have the Saturday Night Gala included in your admission ticket, you can still attend the Gala by purchasing a separate ticket for $60. Note: This does not include admission to the convention.
One of the favorite traditions of Star Trek Vegas is the famous STAR TREK “RAT PACK” Show, an original musical comedy performance, written and produced by talented Max Grodenchik (DS9’s Rom) and joined by fellow stars Casey Biggs, Jeffrey Combs, Vaughn Armstrong and Ethan Philips. It is a witty and warm night of musical comedy, filled with parodies of famed songs with new lyrics by Max. Suggested by attending fans to end our convention with a fun “upbeat” event instead of just waiting for autographs we listened and tinkered with the schedule -- and a new tradition was born! With the STAR TREK “RAT PACK” show set for Sunday night, this will be the last night of the convention to laugh, enjoy, and celebrate Star Trek with fellow fans from around the galaxy.
Most of the Star Trek fans would say that the convention week in Las Vegas is unprecedented and unlike any other fan gathering in the world! Our 2018 convention was truly incredible and received worldwide coverage, especially due to super-surprise appearance of Sir Patrick Stewart to announce his return as legendary Captain Picard in a brand new series. Attendees also warmly received the new cast of Star Trek: Discovery, making them feel so welcomed.
The 2018 event also featured over 100 guests, hundreds of cosplayers, non-stop action, and free perks. Plus, there’s the immediate friendships you will make with fellow fans, many that will last a lifetime.
With parties and musical performances going way into the night, guest hosts, and the bar scene hopping after as is the casino and The Rio’s wonderful array of dining spots; it is virtually 24 hours a day of all things Star Trek! With Star Trek now in an incredible never before seen pattern of growth and new ventures, this is the best time to be part of the Las Vegas Convention, because you just don’t know what could happen!
Of course there is the world’s largest Trek vendors room, signing area, art displays, photo ops, autographs, and re-creations of famed sets from the franchise’s history. And that’s just a small part of the fun, along with changing and new attractions for all. ALWAYS, make sure you are on our FREE Star Trek e-mail list so you know about new guests, developments, ticket launches, and all the latest news!
The Star Trek experience continues as you reach the massive Gene & Majel Roddenberry Vendors Room, filled with extraordinary collectables, both new and vintage from the Star Trek Universe.
The galaxy's largest Star Trek Convention dealers room and vendors are coming from around the globe to display at this event. You'll find photos, posters, artwork, toys, dolls, games, books and magazines, autographed items, costume and prop replicas, limited edition items and so much more! Start saving now because there will be tons of stuff you will want! And don't forget to meet many fantastic Star Trek celebrities who are present at various times throughout the convention to greet attendees and offer their autographs at a nominal fee.
On Saturday, we have our famous Costume Parade to open the day as scores of amazing cosplayers make their way in costume through the convention (including the Vendors Area & The Promenade) and into the main theatre for a group picture. The parade is often lead by a Parade Marshall, typically a Star Trek celebrity! There will be surprises galore, and we certainly love the fact that literally thousands come in terrific costumes.
Also, our best advice is to make sure you eat (and the Rio has SO many excellent choices you can’t go wrong) and drink plenty of fluids during your stay – and wear comfortable shoes or sneakers if you can.
Besides the main auditorium and registration area, The Promenade Hallway serves as your main focal point for getting to all other areas of the convention, including the Vendors Room. It also has various rooms, special exhibits, some prop replicas, displays and more. It’s a great place to ask a cosplay attendee to allow you to take pictures as there as so many potential backdrops.
We welcome you into our secondary ballroom, The DeForest Kelley Theatre, which will hold additional programming and panels more attuned to the behind the scenes of the Star Trek franchise. 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.)
The studio approves all vendors unless you were approved last year or are an official licensee, so write to us at email@example.com with what you want to display and sell! Please do not purchase a booth or table without an okay from us, which we must get from the studio, and note that anything infringing on studio intellectual property is forbidden, as is promotion of any Star Trek fan films.
