What a wonderful time we had at the 2007 Official STAR TREK Convention: really a family reunion of folks from around the globe united in their passion for a positive future as embodied by Gene Roddenberry's legacy. With over 75 Star Trek celebrities and 13,000 fantastic fans it surely was a time to remember and made even more exciting by the knowledge that STAR TREK LIVES large! With its positive hope for mankind and acceptance and celebration of diversity, there is no doubt that Star Trek is the most important and meaningful genre show of all.
