104: Star Trek Hula


Star Trek is the focus of many conventions, but how many can claim to take place on a volcanic island? In this episode of Trek News and Views, we talk to HawaiiCon Chief Executive Officer and Convention Chair GB Hajim about the event's unique and intimate atmosphere. Whether zip-lining, snorkeling with Jonathan Frakes, beach-bumming with Walter Koenig, or just hanging at the bar with Nichelle Nichols, an experience like no other awaits you at HawaiiCon, which takes place September 15-18, 2016, at the Mauna Lani Bay Hotel and Bungalows on the big island of Hawai’i. And as a non-profit, the event puts its proceeds back into the community.
