When I was out visiting with the folks at Roddenberry Entertainment, they spoke highly of the forthcoming Mission New York Trek convention. It’s an officially licensed con that is not run by Creation, which is a good thing as far as I’m concerned.
A lot of TNG/VOY guests are attending in addition to Shatner, and they appear to actually have some fan panels organized, like the good old days of fan-run Trek cons. Roddenberry will have a big special 50th anniversay booth there.
This happens to coincide with the Starfleet Academy Experience at the Intrepid Museum in NYC (including the restore Shuttlecraft Galileo), so it would be a great opportunity to catch both.
Anybody else interested?
