This Star Trek convention is run by fans for fans, and it celebrates the 50th anniversary of Star Trek, and all its off shoots, at The Red Lion Templin’s Hotel in Post Falls.
It features some impressive guests from both behind the scenes and in front the camera, including Tim Russ, writer of several episodes of the series, and the main character in "Star Trek: Voyager" – Tuvok, and Dragon Dronet, who makes all the specialized weapons, props and miniaturised characters for "Star Trek: The Next Generation", "Star Trek: Deep Space Nine", and more. All the guests are happy to talk to their fans and provide autographs!
Starkane has lots of activities going on throughout the event; charity auctions, sci fi movie showings, an art show, karaoke and more are all open to everyone.
"For the Love of Spock" a documentary about Leonard Nimoy, written and directed by Nimoy and his son, Adam, is rumored to be showing at some point; this film, funded completely by Kickstarter, is a heartfelt biography about Nimoy’s relationship with Star Trek’s Spock.
Starkane has all the hallmarks of a successful convention, and everyone involved is dedicated and enthusiastic and not put off by the hard work involved in organizing an event like this; it should appear on the map very soon!
