I would like to propose lists/articles tracking significant Star Trek conventions. Perhaps major ones could have their own articles explaining what made them notable. Similarly, I would like to see lists of Trek actors' historical convention appearances. For example:

William Shatner

Appearance Date Location Event Organizer
#xx 4 Apr 1987 Omaha, XX World of Wheels Expo
#xx 15 Jun 1996 Springdale, AR
#xx Aug 1996 Norfolk, VA Trek-o-Rama Star Trek Convention
#xx Sep 1996 Huntsville, AL
#xx x Aug 2004 Hollywood, CA "Beam Me Up Scotty ... One Last Time," the James Doohan Farewell Star Trek Convention & Tribute Planet Xpo

A template like this could possibly be added to the corresponding actor's article.--StAkAr Karnak 23:04, 9 August 2006 (UTC)

I don't see a general problem with adding lists of convention appearances to the actor articles (although it might lead to discussions about which conventions really are noteworthy/relevant and which aren't). However, our "article restrictions" would be the same for convention articles as for any other type of article. We're not really a database for Trek fandom, so just like we're not having an article for each fan series or website, we shouldn't have articles for each separate convention. -- Cid Highwind 12:04, 13 August 2006 (UTC)

"We're not really a database for Trek fandom" - that makes a lot of sense; it helps me figure out where to draw the line. My whole interest in the Cons is behind-the-scenes info, potentially valuable for MA, that may have been revealed at the Cons. -- StAkAr Karnak 17:29, 13 August 2006 (UTC)
