Creation's Chicago Con Roster. Is it Spock's Last?
With the recent announcement of his retirement, Leonard Nimoy has been hitting the convention circuit pretty heavily. Not that we're complaining. We definitely want to see him before he buys a condo and moves to Florida. With the retirement news though, we just assumed that Vegas Khhaaan! was going to be his last show. Apparently not. It looks like the 44th annual Chi-town convention could be our Vulcan friend's last show (maybe). So, if you're looking for a chance to get a photo or autogarph with Mr. Nimoy beyond Vegas, you still have a chance.
Besides Spock, the Chicago con is shaping up to be a superb show with an emphasis on DS9. With tickets in hand, you'll get a full compliment of Cardassians, Ferengi, & Klingons. Oh and don't forget Christopher Lloyd & young Spock (Jacob Kogan) from Star Trek XI. Check out the full list below.

Mr. Spock. It is our great pleasure to welcome a true American treasure to Chicago as a headliner for the convention. As an actor, director, writer, producer, author, and photographer Leonard has been part of our popular culture for over 50 years. His thrilling return as Mr. Spock in the recent blockbuster STAR TREK movie was one for the record books and in person Leonard is a joy: warm, funny and inspirational. Leonard will be with us on Sunday of the convention.
Super-popular iconic performer best known for a incredible series of roles including Dr. Emmett Brown in the BACK TO THE FUTURE films, Reverend Jim in the classic television series TAXI, Judge Doom in WHO FRAMED ROGER RABBIT, and of course Commander Kruge in STAR TREK III: THE SEARCH FOR SPOCK. We are thrilled to welcome one of our all-time favorite stars to CHICAGO for the very first time! Appearing Sunday
