My favourite in the UK is http://www.sfball.com/

It's not just Star Trek but includes other sc-fi genres.  It's an amazing event with fantastic hosts.  The atmosphere is incredible and I have made some very good friends as a result.  The above link will give you all the details about it.  Plus they have a free forum where you can post questions etc.  

I highly recommend this event and would put it down as a must...

I went to a collectormania convention last Saturday (17th Nov) in Manchester. The place itself wasn't too great but I did have a lot of fun. I met lots of people and not just star trek fans The mix included starwars and red dwarf  
The next one is same place same time next year.

They had something very similar (infact, I think it's the same thing) about 5 years ago in London.

Should bring it back.

never been to a convention but when pages bar in london was open it tended to get the overspills from any london event, saw robert beltran at pages, he did seem quite bitter about his time on voyager

I went to one in Mancester a few years ago and I met Robert Picardo, Nichelle Nicoles ( who I felt was a bit grumpy to say the least) Alexander Siddig and Nana Visiter who seemed very pleased to be there and didn't mind having there photos taken can't remember the name of the hotel though.
