[7 Sep 2010 | by | 13 Comments]

Every year we eagerly await Dragon*Con. It’s one of our favorite conventions, as well as a great opportunity to spend time with friends.

Last year we waited in line to pick up our pre-registration badges at Dragon*Con for more than three and a half hours on Thursday. Fans were outraged over the mess, to say the very least.

East Coast Star Trek Convention 2010 Convention Report

[19 Aug 2010 | by | Comments Off]

This past weekend Creation Entertainment hosted the Official East Coast Star Trek Convention in Parisppany, New Jersey. On the guest list was George Takei, Jeri Ryan, Casey Biggs, Jeffrey Combs, Armin Shimerman, Max Grodenchik, Vaughn Armstrong, Nana Visitor, Ethan Phillips, and J.G. Hertzler (who was a last minute replacement for Jennifer Lien, who canceled). And for the record, J.G. Hertzler is the man. If you are a DS9 fan, you should absolutely try to attend a convention with him. You will not be disappointed. J.G. Hertzler is pretty much a Klingon in real life.
