Star Trek fans from around the world descended on Riverside, Iowa - the fictional future birthplace of Captain James T. Kirk- this weekend (6/28 and 6/29) for Trek Fest 29.
The Star Trek convention, which celebrates all the different Star Trek franchises, features a broad range of events, including trivia, costume contests, and swap meets.
