Leonard Nimoy’s son booked to attend Vul-Con

Spock bustAdam Nimoy, son of the late Leonard Nimoy, will make an appearance at Vulcan’s annual Star Trek convention.

Vulcan is unveiling a plaque in honour of Leonard Nimoy, who died last year, on July 9 at the Spock bust, which is located on the corner of Centre Street and Second Avenue.

The ceremony is open to the public.

Vulcan Tourism planned to unveil a new plaque at the Spock bust during this year’s Vul-Con and couldn’t think of anyone better to unveil it than Leonard Nimoy’s son, said Devan Daniels, Tourism’s administrator.

“It’s a great honour to have Adam here,” said Daniels.

He’s expecting a “huge” crowd to attend the plaque unveiling, which kicks off Vulcan’s Star Trek convention.

Adam will provide a question-and-answer session on stage and sign free autographs inside the convention halls of Vul-Con.

“He’s a truly class act like his father,” said Daniels about Adam signing autographs for free.

To get into the question-and-answer session, admission is required to get in to Vul-Con, which takes place July 9 and 10.

Guaranteed seating is provided to VIP ticket holders only, with general admission ticket holders seated on a first-come, first-served basis.

Tickets are available at www.vulcanconvention.com.

In addition to Adam Nimoy, Vulcan Tourism has booked eight other celebrity guests to appear at the 2016 Vul-Con, which celebrates the 50th anniversary of Star Trek.

These guests include:

  • Robert Beltran, who played Commander Chakotay on Voyager;
  • Sally Kellerman, who played Dr. Elizabeth Dehner on the second pilot of The Original Series;
  • Robyn Curtis, who played Lieutenant Saavik in two Star Trek movies;
  • Julie Cobb, whose character was the only female red shirt to be killed in The Original Series;
  • Rosemary Morgan, who played Piri on Voyager and is Cobb’s daughter;
  • Dominic Keating, who played Lieutenant Malcolm Reed on Enterprise;
  • Andrew Robinson, who played Garak on Deep Space Nine;
  • Manu Intiraymi, who played Icheb on Voyager.

“All eight of these actors have never attended a convention in Alberta before,” said Daniels.

As well as the celebrity guests, Star Trek historians John Tenuto and Maria Jose Tenuto will be making presentations throughout the weekend.
