Star Trek Chicago Convention

Creation Entertainment will be honoring two groundbreaking Star Trek series with this convention: STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION and STAR TREK: DEEP SPACE NINE. This convention will feature the area's largest array of stars from each of these favorite shows!

A glimpse of the convention events is posted here, but please make sure to carefully review the website here (http://www.creationent.com/cal/stchi.htm) to see all event details before purchasing tickets. Please tell us which day and special events you plan on attending in the comments section so we can organize meetup groups. For example, Ben loves DS9 and Captain Sisko, so if we can attend we will be going Sunday to meet Avery Brooks.

One of the coolest things about the convention is the chance to get in person autographs on the item of your choice (you can bring something from home or purchase a photo or souvenir at the convention).
