Star Trek Convention

Mr. Spock (actor Leonard Nimoy) is taking his last voyage to the Star Trek Convention. The 45th anniversary celebration will be the final appearance for Nimoy at the convention, which also includes celebrity appearances by Nichelle Nichols (Lt. Uhura), Connor Trinneer (Charles "Trip" Tucker) and Dominic Keating (Lt. Malcolm Reed). The convention festivities -- including music performances, panel discussions, autograph sessions and a sci-fi exhibition -- will run late into the night with after-hours events and parties. Why go: It's the last chance to see Mr. Spock, and nerds can be cool too, even in Trekkie gear. Reconsider: If you are not ready to embrace your nerddom. Details: 12:30-6 p.m. Friday, 10:30 a.m.-6 p.m. Saturday, 10 a.m.-5:30 p.m. Sunday at Westin O'Hare Hotel, 6100 N. River Road, Rosemont; $20-$50;
