If you're in the Indianapolis area and celebrate Thanksgiving on Thursday but still have a bunch of days off after that, you can now fill that time with Star Trek! It's time again for Starbase Indy!
That's right, one of the best independently run Star Trek conventions around, Starbase Indy, just happens to be going on this weekend; November 28th - 30th 2014. We're not biased, we swear...it's just that we've attended one of their conventions a few years back and it was a fabulous time. Because this convention is not a "mega-convention" you get less wait time for panels and events, tons of after hours parties and fun, close up seating to panels, and much closer access to the guests overall, which ultimately turns it into an awesomely memorable experience!
New Day-Trip Available From Geek Nation Tours Coinciding With The Official Star Trek Convention In Las Vegas, This July!
Remember back in March when we told you about the ultimate Star Trek themed guided tour? Well, if you can't make that one, how about a single day excursion? Geek Nation Tours has added a Star Trek themed Day-Trip called "Trek into the Valley of Fire - One Day Adventure" to their roster!
Hey Kids, looks like there's a Groupon deal that allows you to buy a single day pass to Creation Entertainment's Star Trek Las Vegas Convention at half off. You have the choice of any of the four days starting Thursday, August 8th for $17.50. Friday is also $17.50 with Saturday and Sunday for $20 each. The downside is that you can only get one day at the discounted rate. You have the option of buying two additional days as gifts. If you're going for just one day or you have a group of 4 buddies that can buy each other "gift" days, it could be a good deal (that may or may not work...your mileage may vary).
MAKE IT SO!!! Be part of this great effort!! There's still a little time to get in on the fun. Bring the bridge of the Enterprise-D to Vegas. Who knows...maybe traveling to Vegas will be just the thing it needs to get traveling more...next time maybe even to your neck of the
As you well know (...anyway...I'm assuming you do...after all, your only source of online info & entertainment is us, right?... right?!?) Subspace Communique reported on the Enterprise Bridge Restoration Project back in February 2013 on “Life After Trek.” Well, much has happened since then, and now, Trek Radio is teaming up with Huston Huddleston’s New Starship to bring the iconic Enterprise-D bridge to Creation Entertainment’s Star Trek Las Vegas convention this August. This is your chance to help bring this cool memorabilia to the Rio where you'll actually be able to sit in one of the bridge chairs, and bark, "Make it so!" or shout, "FIRE!" Don't miss out on making this dream a reality!
One of our favorite fan run conventions is close at hand... Starbase Indy, in Indianapolis, is launching it's 17th mission over Thanksgiving weekend. Not only will you be able to see J.G. Hertzler and Robert O'Reilly as Martok & Gowron, but Nicole de Boer (Ezri Dax) will also be on hand. Not to mention our good friend Larry Nemecek and artist David Reddick will also be in attendance. We had the pleasure of covering Starbase Indy in 2010 and had an absolute blast meeting new friends and getting to hang out with Life After Trekker Manu Intiraymi.
Don’t make any plans for mid-February next year…your calendar is soon to be full of convention festivities.

We just got back from a fantastic con in our neck of the woods. That's right earthlings, it's time for the Wizard World Austin Comic Con post convention wrap-up. This was a special Trek centric con, that featured the entire bridge crew from Star Trek: The Next Generation. We've been covering news about Austin CC for the past several months and the show really lived up to the hype.
For all of you that are excited about the Star Trek: The Next Generation reunion at Austin Comic Con, Wizard World just released the full programming schedule. In addition to all of the exciting TNG programming, our good friend Larry Nemecek is slated to appear at the con as well.
