Greetings, Fleetie Darlings!
It is with great pride and excitement that I announce our communities 8th consecutive annual meetup at the Creation Entertainment's Star Trek Convention in Fabulous Las Vegas! This is an amazing convention full of major and minor celebrities from all of Trek's film and television iterations. This year also marks the 30th Anniversary of Star Trek The Next Generation so we'll most likely be getting a full TNG cast reunion. This year the convention dates are August 2nd through August 6th, that's 5 days of Trek, with celebrity panels, trivia events in Quark's bar (yes they have one complete with Ferengi bartenders) and an out-of-this-galaxy vendors room. The convention is held at The Rio All Suite Hotel and Casino with special discount rates offered to convention-goers if you book though the link on Creation's site. If you're looking for a cheaper alternative, The Gold Coast Hotel & Casino is just across the street from the Rio and offers more affordable rates.
Every year our group has grown and really, it's the reason we all keep coming back year after year so as many others on this thread will attest, come out and have an incredible time with us, we'd love to meet you in-person! Be sure to join our official Vegas group here on the website and feel free to post if you are looking to split a room or have any questions about the meetup. Most of us arrive the Monday or weekend before the con begins. Also feel free to PM me or post here on the thread if you have any questions.
There are several packages currently on sale for the convention but the General Admission ones, which are cheapest, have not yet been released. I will post an update on this thread when they are and they should be announcing their release soon on the convention site. We're pretty tight with the Cryptic Devs who have had a strong presence at the con for the last 7 years as well. They like to party with us and we with them, same goes for our friends at Priority One Podcast and the G&T Show. I cannot stress enough the sheer amount of fun to be had with your fellow Fleeties at this most wonderful annual event. On behalf of the Stonewall Leadership and all us convention veterans, I happily extend an invitation to you and hope that I'll see you there! #STLV2017
