Trekkies, those devoted Star Trek fans, will be “beamed up” to Niagara Falls next week.
They’ll be drawn by William Shatner who portrayed Captain James T. Kirk in the original TV series who appears at Niagara Falls Comic Con.
This year’s event from June 6 to 8 features “more than 30 pop culture celebrities,” said Chris Dabrowski, show manager.

Being held at the Scotiabank Convention Centre (6815 Stanley Ave.), there will be exhibitors, comic books, movie cars, cosplay (costume play) contests, celebrity autographs and photo-ops, a video gaming arena and Falls Horror Fest with movie actors, memorabilia, props and displays.
Fans can have their picture taken with a replica of the Ghostbusters’ “Ecto-1” vehicle.
Members of the 501st Legion will be dressed up as Stormtroopers and other characters from the Star Wars trilogy.
