The Official 2019 Star Trek Las Vegas Convention
July 31 – August 4, 2019
The Rio Suites and Resort
3700 W Flamingo Rd.
Las Vegas, NV 89103
We are beyond thrilled to present the 2019 Official Star Trek Convention Las Vegas, the one and only annual convention in which you can truly get the most immersive Star Trek experience ever! Fans from around the galaxy gather in one place, shut the doors to the outside world, and celebrate Gene Roddenberry’s amazing and growing franchise, and what it means to all of us.
From fans whose love of Star Trek began with the very first episode in the 1960’s, to all the brand-new devotees who joined the family through the portals of Star Trek: Discovery and the J.J. Abrams’ feature films, it was indeed an honor to see the smiles, the enjoyment and the shared love of what Star Trek truly stands for: A positive future for all and the celebration of diversity among human beings. We honor the legacy of our mentor Gene Roddenberry and his wife Majel, and try to live up to their credo that if we as humans can’t get along how are we ever going to be ready for the other lifeforms that one day we surely will meet?
We love that this unique event has become the place for thousands of fans to reunite with old friends -- and meet new ones -- as they all share a passion and love for the franchise. We adore working with our friends at CBS to provide attendees with the very best time ever and with our mutual goal of always topping ourselves for the enjoyment of our fellow fans.
The recent 2018 Official Star Trek Convention was certainly hailed as the best ever,
as fans were transported to a spectacular five days of all things Star Trek. From celebrating the 25th anniversary of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, to seeing the largest cast gathering from the CBS All Access series, Star Trek: Discovery, to revealing for the first time that Sir Patrick Stewart will be reprising his iconic role as Jean-Luc Picard in a brand new CBS All Access series, Star Trek fans were literally leaping from their seats with excitement!
It was such an honor to have Sir Patrick and Star Trek executive producer Alex Kurtzman announce the news in person at our #STLV 2018 convention. The fact Sir Patrick is ready to jump into his character once again gives us goosebumps just thinking about the possibilities of this new series and all the other expansion plans for the property.

As for commemorating the 25th anniversary of Deep Space Nine, there were some wonderful panels involving the cast of the show which most fans agree holds up today. The show’s executive producer/director Ira Steven Behr also showed a sneak peek of his upcoming Deep Space Nine documentary, What We Left Behind. Deep Space Nine fans were also treated to an in-depth look at one of the show’s most talked-about episodes, “Far Beyond the Stars.” Following the special screening of the episode, many of the show’s stars came on stage to discuss it, including Armin Shimerman, Rene Auberjonois, Nana Visitor, Aron Eisenberg, Terry Farrell, Cirroc Lofton, Marc Alaimo, JG Hertzler, Jeffrey Combs, along with Ira Steven Behr and Marc Zicree. There was also a special after-party mixer where people could have a more intimate setting with their favorite Deep Space Nine stars.
The other major highlight was having the cast of Star Trek: Discovery join the fun. The new series is gaining great momentum after its first season, and there was a bevy of entertaining panels with the stars, including Sonequa Martin-Green, Jason Isaacs, Rainn Wilson, Mary Wiseman, Shazad Latif, Doug Jones, Mary Chieffo, Kenneth Mitchell, Jayne Brook, Anthony Rapp, Wilson Cruz and Anson Mount, who will be playing the seminal Christopher Pike in the upcoming second season. The cast all signed autographs and took photo ops with fans, and everyone also learned for the first time that a DVD release of Season One was on the way. There was lots of excitement from both the audience and Discovery cast, who felt the love from their fans. It was a joy to see this group of talented performers so thrilled and also to see that they are bringing new devotees into the Star Trek family.
Naturally, Star Trek franchise favorites also attended, including The Original Series stars William Shatner, George Takei, Walter Koenig and Nichelle Nichols; The Next Generation’s Jonathan Frakes, Brent Spiner, Michael Dorn, Marina Sirtis, LeVar Burton and Gates McFadden; Voyager’s Kate Mulgrew, Robert Beltran and Jeri Ryan; and Enterprise stars John Billingsley, Connor Trinneer and Dominic Keating.
We even had a marriage proposal happen on stage during the TWOK cosplay meetup on the CBS stage… see the photo below!
Suffice to say, the 2018 Official Star Trek Convention was a total blast, and it was such a pleasure providing such great and exciting entertainment to the Star Trek fans.
We are already working on the preparations to deliver another stellar five-day event in 2019, bringing the devotees the unique Creation experience they love along with their favorite Star Trek celebrities! It’s always such a pleasure to meet Trekkers from around the world and to see the creativity, passion and kindness that this community has for each other and all things Star Trek.
The personal fan experience is something we take very seriously and pride ourselves in delivering the best here at Creation. With lively and engaging panels you can't experience anywhere else, meet & greets, autographs & photo ops, concerts and special performances with talented celebrities, we give attendees every opportunity to have an unforgettable vacation.
At this time, we can confirm – and as tradition continues -- that legendary captains William Shatner and Kate Mulgrew will be our first headline guests! Stay tuned for more guest announcements!
We are also now offering the remaining GOLD WEEKEND packages to the public, so don’t miss the opportunity to get one of the best seats in the house, plus you will enjoy all the other great benefits and perks you get when you GO GOLD.
We thank everyone who signed up at the show and appreciate your amazing support over the years. This event has followed the Creation promise that differentiates us from any other fan gatherings. Everyone is guaranteed a seat in our main theatre, and there is no worrying about getting shut out from seeing the stars and events. The gorgeous main theatre is state of the art, a huge and comfortable venue, and is just one of the ballrooms that is part of the entire Rio Convention Center -- a gigantic space totally “Trekked” out!
