Pick of the Day: Creation Entertainment's Official Star Trek Convention 2011 at Gaylord Opryland Resort

Creation Entertainment's Official Star Trek Convention 2011
When: Fri., Sat. & Sun. July 29-31
Where: Gaylord Opryland Resort

So here’s the thing. As supportive as I am of dorks getting together to dork it up on a grand dork scale, I can’t help but wonder if said dorks realize how completely absurd Star Trek conventions look to the outside world. Even Creation Entertainment’s “official” Star Trek convention, an offshoot of the Las Vegas con that regularly attracts thousands of attendees, looks downright silly. Sunday morning Klingon breakfast? A “rat pack” of character actors doing a Vegas-style Star Trek variety show? Thirty dollars for a picture with a Ferengi? Even the most die-hard Trekkers must find some humor in this madness, right? [Editor’s note: This sounds awesome.] Aside from the usual nerd festivities like costume and trivia contests, panels and memorabilia out the wazoo, the whole con leads up to an appearance by William Shatner himself on Sunday, hopefully singing “Rocket Man” to a crowd bordering on hysterical.
