Hundreds of Star Trek celebrity guests have appeared at Creation Entertainment's Official Star Trek Conventions over the years, but one Trek star had eluded their grasp... Until now. Kirstie Alley, who originated the role of Saavik in Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, has been locked in for Star Trek Las Vegas, Creation's big 50th anniversary show, which will take place at the Rio Suites Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas from August 3-7.
"One of the true hallmarks of what has made the Official Star Trek Convention in Las Vegas so much fun each year is that we always try to land amazing celebrities that often are indeed more famous out of Star Trek than in," Gary Berman, co-founder and co-COO of Creation, told StarTrek.com. "It is indeed a pleasure to welcome one of the country's leading comedic actresses, Kirstie Alley, as one of our headliners in the 50th anniversary year. Kirstie will be making her first convention appearance on Friday of the gathering.
"I think the entire country has loved Kirstie's work over the years, particularly in Cheers, Veronica's Closet and the Look Who's Talking films, but for Star Trek fans like us, she created one of the most enduring characters of the 50 year franchise," he added. "She just did an incredible job.
"We've been trying forever to have her join us and are so excited that her schedule finally allows an appearance," Berman concluded. "And to have it happen on such a momentous year makes it even more exciting for us and our audience."
