I'm not sure what to expect as this was my first convention experience. I was shocked that William Shatner would charge $90 for an autograph. Mostly a forum to sell autographs and photos. There was an auction with fans bidding hundreds of...continued

I was extremely let down by this event. The entire thing felt focused on allowing the former stars a means to make money rather than providing an opportunity for funs to interact with various aspects of the Star Trek universe. I'm definitely...continued

Goldstar is awesome but this "convention" was not :( My husband and I were very disappointed. The first complaint is that Creation Events did not publish a schedule of events until just a few days before so planning was hard. The sound in the...continued

It was really an underwhelming experience. There were only two rooms of vendors with only shirts and signed photos. I guess I was expecting a lot more vendors or displays. There was no clear signage to anything and really the only thing to do...continued

Enjoyed seeing William Shatner and "Captain Pike." Thought there would be a much larger expo area - just 2 smallish rooms. Not much else to do Sunday, especially since the power was out half the day - certainly not the fault of the convention! ...continued

We attended on Saturday. While being fans of Star Trek when it was on, we were rather bored at the conference. It wasn't quite what we were expecting. The highlight of the day was the hour Q&A with Brent Spiner (Data) and Gates McFadden (Dr....continued

Being a Star Trek nerd from the beginning, I loved it. Was disappointed that 4 major stars cancelled at last minute but had fun listening to the replacements. The costume contest is always a hoot. Some creative people out there (as well as some...continued

had a lot of fun. Loved the costume contest (and people watching those who didn't even bother to enter the contest but had great costumes). Long line to register, could have been better organized.

Started out with a power failure in the entire area! Not their fault but recommendation was to come back at 11:00am. I did that and ended up missing half of 2 actors' session because the power came back earlier than they thought. Did a good job of...continued

Having never attended before I didn't really know what to expect. I was hoping for an opportunity to pick up some souvenirs, see some exhibits, see some videos and hear some of the actors/actresses that participated in the 5 shows. There were no...continued

A couple of no shows, so they ran films. The highlight is that they do have some great guest speakers. Auctions and photo ops are not our favorite, so we went shopping at the attached Mall while that was going on. Schedule is not up early...continued

This was really bad. The headlining actors cancelled. Thank goodness the tickets were comps.

I went for Saturday only. Overall I'm glad I went. However, some of the headliners I wanted to see canceled leading up to it. I can forgive one or two major actors canceling, but when all the main headliners end up canceling, it's really...continued

not enough vendor stalls; prices of autographs and picture opportunities way too expensive. Stars were excellent. My husband is hoping it will be bigger and better next year and will attend again.

It wasn't as large as I might have liked and one of the convention hosts/presenters was really sexist in the remarks he made but other than that I enjoying having the opportunity to hear from and even meet the stars from TNG and TOS...some even...continued

The event was extremely small and not well-attended. There were only about 10 or 12 vendors selling common and unimpressive items. The sound quality of the main stage was terrible. The activities and presentations were terribly lame and...continued
