Creation Entertainment will close out its year-long celebration of Star Trek's 45th anniversary with a convention at the Westin O'Hare Hotel in Chicago, IL, September 30 to October 2. The convention will not only conclude the company's 45th anniversary events, but, lending it major historical significance, it will also represent the last-ever convention appearance by Star Trek icon Leonard Nimoy.
Speaking about the upcoming convention, Creation Entertainment co-CEO Gary Berman says, "We are all honored that Leonard Nimoy has chosen our events to be his last. It surely was a moving moment in Las Vegas (in August) for all of us and it was quite a bittersweet highlight for us as a company. Creation's relationship with Mr. Nimoy runs for decades and we've always strived to present him in the best possible way because he really has been an inspiration to us here."
Of course, Nimoy stated not long ago that he had retired from acting, and he subsequently appeared in a music video, on Fringe, and stated that there could be more work in the offing. That has led some fans to hope that Nimoy will reconsider his retirement from the convention circuit. Says Berman, "I know (Creation co-CEO) Adam (Malin) will continue to try to coax him to do shows in the future, especially Vegas, but it seems pretty serious for retirement."
