NOTE: Check the dates the above guests are appearing -- some of them are doing more than one con in one weekend, so they're only at each of them for one day!

JULY

Shore Leave
July 9-11
Baltimore, MD, USA
Katherine Hicks, Dominic Keating

Polaris
July 16-18
Toronto, ON, CA
Mark Sheppard is the only ST-related guest confirmed, but I'd be surprised if they don't add more; if you are planning to attend, keep an eye out for so_ont_gqmfs as there's been a bit of discussion (here and here)

London Film and Comic Con
July 16-18
London, UK
William Shatner, Jonathan Frakes, Andrew Robinson - check out londongqmfs for meetup info

Comic-Con International
July 22-25
San Diego, CA, USA
Bizarrely, I didn't see any ST-related guests on the list yet, but they're sure to come, especially if they have other genre films coming out next year to promote; be sure to check out gqmf_sandiego  for meetup plans

Starfleet International Conference
Wagoner, OK, USA
July 30-August 1
I think this is a gathering of fans as opposed to a media convention, as there are no guests announced

AUGUST

Creation Star Trek Las Vegas
Las Vegas, NV, USA
August 5-8
Just about everyone will be there (check the link for guest lists); Leonard Nimoy is doing a photography seminar; Dean Haglund and Claudia Christian are, as far as I can tell, performing what appears to be fanfiction live; there's a costume parade - in short, it looks to be wacky fun

OzTrek3
21 & 22 August
Melbourne & Sydney, Australia
Michael Dorn, Marina Sirtis

Chicago Comic Con
Chicago, IL, USA
August 19-22
Paul McGillion, William Shatner

See here for a list of ST-related guests and meetup plans

Reunion 8
September 10-12
Daventry, UK
Connor Trinneer; very small, friendly and intimate con :)

OCTOBER

ConClave
October 8-10
Romulus, MI, USA
No ST-related guests that I could see, but I'm including it anyway because it's in ROMULUS, MI ;)

NOVEMBER

Warp 10
November 5-7
Northampton, UK
Jennifer Lien, Diana Muldaur, still early days, more to come! (this one's a 'proper' con with parties and stuff as opposed to a signing event)

Collectormania London
November 27-28
London, UK
Armin Shimerman, more to be announced

Note that Star Trek authors, scriptwriters, etc. are guests at many other conventions (most of the larger author-focused ones will have at least one ST spinoff writer, for example); I haven't included those here because I'm not familiar enough with all the ST authors out there to be able to pick them out of a guest list. 

I'll try to remember to repost a link to an updated list every couple of months; others should feel free to post links to this post in the weekly meetup threads and wherever else appropriate. :)
