The world is upside-down thanks to the Coronavirus. Nurses, doctors, mail carriers, and grocery workers are on the front lines, while us civilians are hunkered down at home. Plans across the nation have been dashed, as social distancing makes gatherings impossible. This mass cancelation hit the Star Trek Universe as well, as production for Discovery was delayed until safer times.
For fans, this situation is a real bummer, especially if you had plans to spend some time at one of the many conventions. But they all are canceled. Even the granddaddy of them all — the San Diego Comic-Con is done for 2020.
Don’t fret. Thanks to some entrepreneurial spirit and video-conferencing technology, you can now attend the In-House Con; a series of online events where fans can interact with cast members from some of the very best sci-fi comic book-related franchises — including Star Trek.
You can meet the stars of Star Trek: Discovery at In-House Con on May 9, 2020. Chat with Doug Jones (Saru), Patrick Kwok-Choon (Lt. Rhys), Raven Dauda (Dr. Pollard), and Hannah Cheesman (Airiam)
Derek Maki, the president of Coolwaters Productions, LLC., is the brains behind this event. He’s no stranger to conventions or working to connect talent with fans. For over 25 years, Maki has created incredible experiences for both his clients and their fans. During these times, In-House Con will be even more special.
“Never before shared at a convention or public event our fans will have a chance to see some cool behind the scenes photos or videos of our clients,” says Maki.
“Some clients will share via an ‘old school’ version of ‘show and tell’ some props they may have, or their shooting scripts and more! The celebs all will be on live from their homes for this event to chat with fans.”
Maki says that the actors who will take part in In-House Con were happy to be a part, and are excited to interact with fans.
“I am honored and privileged to have the most amazing talent who want me to succeed,” says Maki. “I work very hard for all of them and I think this was their way to give back to me.”
