The Empire Strikes Back: The Tips and Tricks of the Correct Application of Klingon (or Any Alien) Makeup
Over the years, we have all seen various creations of the Klingon makeup—some good and some, well, not so good.  This is often not the fault of the costumer, but rather of the available materials and the learned techniques.  In this two-hour panel, we will go over the techniques to properly create your Klingon (or any alien) character ranging from how to find or create your costume to how to create or purchase the right headpiece for yourself and which makeup is best for you.  Brian Holloway.

FRIDAY, MAY 25 · 7:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.
Are You Green?

"Newbie intro into cons.  I thought I knew Star Trek until I came to Treklanta.  I had the costumes, even played a Klingon beauty contestant, took a Star Trek-themed cruise, but felt like everyone else was in a secret club.  What can you do after the con to really be a Trekkie?"  Therese Trent Voorhees.

From Alaimo to Throne: A Tribute to Star Trek Character Actors
You know their faces and their voices but maybe not their names.  You’ve seen them on one or maybe several Trek shows going back as far as the 1960s.  You love them as heroes and hate them as villains (or maybe it’s the other way around).  Join this tribute to the many great character actors who have appeared across the generations of Star Trek, from Clint Howard, Roger C. Carmel and Diana Muldaur in the classic series through David Warner, Brock Peters and Paul Winfield in the movies, up through Deep Space Nine, Voyager and Enterprise regulars including Mark Alaimo, Caroline Seymour and Geoffrey Combs.  The panel will also include a special tribute to Malachi Throne, who played Commodore Mendez in the original Star Trek series two-part episode "The Menagerie" and Pardek in the Star Trek: The Next Generation two-part episode "Unification,” as well as the voice of the Talosian Keeper in the first series pilot "The Cage," which was later incorporated into "The Menagerie."  His first cousin twice removed, Adam Throne, presents this tribute to these talented and prolific character actors.  Adam Throne.

Through the Wormhole: 25 Years of Deep Space Nine
When Star Trek: Deep Space Nine first debuted in 1993, it was something of an odd duck.  It was the first show set on a space station rather than a ship.  It was the first to feature a main cast made up of both Starfleet and non-Starfleet personnel.  As the show went on, it proved how these things could be used as narrative advantages, and became one of the most brilliant chapters of the Star Trek franchise.  We'll take a look back at what made this show unique and important, and how it expanded our view of Gene Roddenberry's universe.  David R. George III, Adam Throne.

The Missing Minority... No More?

Lauded for decades for the groundbreaking racial, ethnic and multinational diversity in the original Star Trek series cast, gay fans have demanded representation and inclusion in every new Star Trek series since, only to be sorely disappointed time after time.  Until now.  Dismissing the "Sulu scene" in Star Trek Beyond as insignificant, Discovery finally brings us not only our first openly gay series regular, but also one who is in a same-sex relationship, until... WHAT THE HELL?  Let's talk about it.  Mark McCray, Leslie Owen.
