HILO, Hawaii – September 27th, 2016 – Only a week ago HawaiiCon happened on the Big Island at the Mauna Lani. Since then there has been alot of news regarding the events and all the awesome things which took place during HawaiiCon including a great article featuring a few of the stars that attended HawaiiCon and Star Trek! Below you can find a brief preview of what the article describes.

"In the Mauna Lani Hotel in northern Kona, actors, comic artists, writers, fans & even scientists have gathered for HawaiiCon. A four-day sci-fi convention in mid-September... It's hard to imagine a better place for a science fiction convention. On this planet, at least."
"Among this year’s guests were several Star Trek veterans: Rod Roddenberry Jr, son of show creator Gene Roddenberry; Nichelle Nichols and Walter Koenig, who played Lieutenant Uhura and Chekov in the original series; and Jonathan Frakes, who played Commander Riker in The Next Generation. It’s been a busy time for the franchise, which turned 50 this month, with the release of Star Trek Beyond this past summer and the upcoming Star Trek: Discovery television series set to debut on CBS in 2017, so we decided to catch up with the former crews of the USS Enterprise about their Star Trek experiences, their thoughts on the new installments and their reflections on half a century of going where no one has gone before."
