STAR TREK 50TH ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION PART 4
|Jeffery Hunter as Captain Pike|
If you’re anything like me, I’m sure you’ve gone to a convention or two. Before mega conventions like San Diego International, DragonCon, Wizard World and New York Comic Con, there was the Star Trek Convention. The first one took place in January 1972 in New York City. By all accounts it was a small gathering of fans. Today, hundreds of thousands attend such conventions around the world. You can also credit Star Trek conventions as the birthplace for cosplay as it is widely popular to dress up as your favorite Trek character. Star Trek transcended science fiction and become the definition of Pop Culture.
