What does it take to get Whoopi Goldberg to a Star Trek convention? How about a chance to celebrate the 50th anniversary in Las Vegas?
That was enough for the comedian and actress, who has signed up for her first-ever convention at Creation Entertainment’s Las Vegas Convention beginning Aug. 3.
“Whoopi is beloved by Star Trek fans for her recurring role as Guinan in ‘Star Trek: The Next Generation” and two Star Trek feature films,” according to a bio published by Creation. “Appearing at her very first Star Trek convention, audiences worldwide have made Ms. Goldberg one of the most popular talents in show business.”
