Beaming down to Las Vegas, Nevada is Creation Entertainment’s 55-year Mission Tour celebrating all things Star Trek on the 55th anniversary of the series. Lay in your coordinates to the Rio Suites Hotel for August 11 to 15, 2021 to attend the fun, fan-filled five-day event.
During the convention, there will be a lot of other reasons to celebrate as well. Creation Entertainment is celebrating its 50th anniversary. Gene Roddenberry, the legendary Star Trek creator, would have been 100 this year, Leonard Nimoy (Spock) would have turned 90 alongside his captain William Shatner (Captain Kirk).
Nimoy fans will be able to attend a fine art photography exhibit and see video footage from previous appearances. There will be a special tribute dedicated to Roddenberry and the iconic series still going to this day. Plus, a video birthday tribute looking over the career and footage of William Shatner for his 90th birthday as well.
There will be a fascinating panel discussing how science equates with the Star Trek universe featuring leading industry expert Dr. Mohamed Noor, the Dean of Natural Sciences at Duke University, and the science consultant for Star Trek. Then talking about the exploration of our solar system will be Dr. David Williams, a renowned planetary geologist with Arizona State University and NASA planetary mission consultant.
Not to mention the auction, exhibition hall, trivia contests, costume contests, Saturday Night Gala Celebration with the Nevada Pops Orchestra.
