Come hang out and prepare to argue!

Auction of Leonard Nimoy’s Personal Items – 1:15PM-2:15PM
This will be one of the few chances fans of Nimoy will have to own some of his personal items, including Star Trek memorabilia. The auction floor will open early, at 12:30PM, so that interested parties are able to preview the available items.

Trek Talks: NASA – 1:30PM-2:30PM
Learn about the future of space exploration from the experts themselves – the real Captain Kirks of the world. How closely does NASA’s work reflect what was shown in Star Trek, and what does space exploration look like moving forward, as technology improves?
Trek Talks: I’m a Doctor D*mnit: Trek & the Future of Healthcare – 2:30PM-3:30PM
In Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home, fans will remember Dr. Leonard McCoy stopping by a lady on dialysis and lamenting the – to him – outdated medical care she was receiving. With a magic pill, he insisted she’d be cured. How does the hopeful future of healthcare as portrayed in Star Trek stack up to what we see today, and what we may hope to see in the future? Listen as professionals discuss the possibilities.
Come listen to Walter Koenig recount his journey in Star Trek as the much beloved Chekov, and see what he took away from it all these years later.
The one and only William Shatner will be in the house, open and ready to discuss his longstanding role as Captain Kirk and answer any burning questions about his time on the franchise. Will he finally get a part in one of the new Star Trek movies? He probably doesn’t know, but someone is bound to ask, and his response will probably be amusing.
That’s what we’ve got for everyone, as the convention winds to a close toward the end of the day. Like we said above, it will be your last chance to grab any of the awesome swag you may have been making heart eyes at this entire time, so I’m here to enable you: get it! Get it, before it is gone.
