Join me at Creation Entertainment’s Official Star Trek Convention at the Rio in Las Vegas. I’ll be speaking at and moderating the panel, “Voyager’s Impact on Female Roles” on Saturday, August 8, 2015 at 5:15pm in the DeForest Kelley Theater at the world’s largest Star Trek Convention. My highly-qualified panelists include Jarrah Hodge (TrekkieFeminist on Tumblr and Women at Warp Podcast), Kayla Iacovino (Trekmovie.com editor and volcanologist) and Amy Imhoff (Shoes and Starships).  Here’s the official description of the panel from the Creation website:

In honor of the 20th anniversary of Voyager, Mary Czerwinski, “The Televixen” and her team of fan girls will discuss how the groundbreaking female characters of Star Trek Voyager influence modern female characters. Do newer TV and film icons stand on the shoulders of the women of Trek? If it wasn’t for Janeway, B’Elanna, Seven and Kes, would there be a Katniss Everdeen, female Starbuck, or the women of Firefly? This interactive discussion encourages audience participation, so start thinking about your favorite female characters and join this spirited celebration of women in sci-fi.In honor of the 20th anniversary of Voyager, Mary Czerwinski, “The Televixen” and her team of fan girls will discuss how the groundbreaking female characters of Star Trek Voyager influence modern female characters.

My panelists being interviewed by Trek Radio following our STLV panel last year. Connor Bright, my co-host of Glue Guns and Phasers also pictured to my right.

I will also be hosting a Star Trek Crafts Workshop sponsored by StarTrek.com. It will be at 8:30 am on Sunday, August 9, 2015. We will be setting up the workshop in the DeForest Kelley Theater bright and early. Amy Imhoff will be my crafting helper this year. Connor Bright will not be assisting me as she is representing Glue Guns and Phasers at ScareLA, which falls on the same weekend this year. Connor will have a whole slew of Halloween-themed crafts and a scavenger hunt, so if you’re in LA and can’t make STLV, check her out at this very fun event!

We had a blast hosting a costume showdown last year at ScareLA and had a great turnout for our crafting activities. I’m bummed I’ll miss it, but I know Connor will do an amazing job representing us there! If you are coming to STLV, our craft this year is a keychain in honor of Leonard Nimoy. We will have two designs to choose from, so it’s great fun for the whole family.

See you all in Vegas at the Rio. Connor looks forward to seeing you all at ScareLA at the Pasadena Convention Center.
