The Official Star Trek Convention was held in Las Vegas last week, and the stars and the fans came out en masse. William Shatner, Leonard Nimoy, Patrick Stewart, Brent Spiner, Jeri Ryan, and Rene Auberjonois are just some of the cast members who attended the event. Numerous fans dressed up for the Costume Contest; the most popular costume this year appears to have been Orion slaves. There was also plenty of merchandise for sale, including Klingon foreheads, a Borg Invasion Chair, and Star Trek books.
