The annual costume contest held during the Las Vegas Star Trek Convention sums up why 10,000 people like me attend each year. The enthusiasm and unabashed nerdiness colored by a rainbow of intergalactic aliens is infectious. Although I haven’t found a way to pack a Klingon outfit into my backpack, I was given access by Creation Entertainment to the other element of the costume contest – a worldly competition to break the Guinness World Record for most people dressed up in Star Trek outfits.

Eventually the world record was won back from Fed Con of Germany (the Vegas convention’s main costumed rival) and these are just some of the 1,085 who helped make it so.
