Originally released on March 13, 2016

Listen to the show :

Hosts Heather and Jeff are joined by Claire Little, co-host of the Atavachron podcast, Jim Moorhouse and Dan Davidson from TrekGeeks to talk new STLV guests, more about the early sell-out and the third edition of our First Khans segment.

Star Trek Las Vegas Convention Topics Covered On This Episode Include :
  • The convention is still sold out, no addition of new tickets despite the announcement that Creation was working on it
  • New guests announced - Whoopi Goldberg, Kirstie Alley, George Takei, Kate Mulgrew

Questions from the Unofficial Facebook group :
  • Angie Long - How excited are you for Whoopi and Kirstey?
  • Noel Lee Velarde - What are your thoughts on away mission to Valley of Fire , the climb up to Kirk's grave site.
  • Eric Profancik - What other "long shot guests" that might make an appearance? Odds of all the captains? What does everyone think of Star Trek the Ultimate Voyage vs Saturday night Nevada Pops concert.
  • Diana Loree - Do you think there will be any recent Star Trek movie cast members this year?
  • Adam Drosin - Why doesn't the Tribble Lounge have Trek eps playing on loop all day?

First Khans with Jim and Dan :
  • When was your first STLV & what made you decide to go to Vegas for the first time?
  • Favorite memories or stories to tell about your first convention?
  • Favorite photo ops and panels?

Other Topics & Convention-Going Advice :
  • Dan - Take lots of photos, you will want the memories down the road.
  • Jim - Talk to the person standing next to you - they want to talk Trek just as much as you do. Use the "what's your favorite series" as an icebreaker - it's always a great conversation starter.
  • Claire - If you think you're not creative enough to cosplay, try it anyway. You don't have to be screen-accurate or a professional, even the simplest costumes can be great.
  • Heather closes the show with a very fitting passage from William Shatner's book about his friendship with the late, great Leonard Nimoy.
