Fans in the Chicago area have always been incredibly supportive of our Official STAR TREK Conventions and we’ve had some amazing times celebrating Gene Roddenberry’s legacy in the Midwest. Now, we are very pleased to announce the 2013 visit (May 31-June 2) and we have the greatest line-up of celebrities EVER to headline a Midwest Star Trek Convention!

There’s The Star Trek “Rat Pack” Nightclub Performance, parties, music, auctions, vendors, videos, costume and trivia competitions, auctions, karaoke, autographs, photo ops, and surprises coming…. and with the new 3-D Imax STAR TREK feature film due out just weeks before the convention excitement is sure to be at the MAX!

WE ARE HAVING A MEETING NEXT WEEK
In 2011, Jewel Staite, who played Kaylee in “Firefly” and “Serenity,” appeared on the tv show “Supernatural,” and her character’s name was Amy Pond. That is some kind of cosmic alignment of Sci-Fi television.
It’s easy to get caught up in all the glitz and glamour of the recent oscar-winning remakes, but some of us still remember the original version back before they could afford to use cgi or breed their own dragons just for the close up shots. This film was from a simpler day in the art of cinema, but still just as powerful, if not more so, than one of the most acclaimed modern remakes ever. So, without further ado, via youtube, I present Humphrey Bogart in the 1944 original, “The Lord of the Rings.”
We all need some holiday cheer so worry not the sith is here!
And remember, Happy Holidays to all!
A DICTIONARY OF MADE-UP LANGUAGES will be published this November by Adams Media.
More images for the new Trek picture are in the new Empire magazine. I think JJ Abrams should have chosen people with a bit more testosterone. The first real trailer will be in front of Quantum of Solice. I pray it looks better in motion or else I will be weeping along with Doc. You kind find all the pictures on Cinematical.
