The New Millenium Hotel and Casino opens in Las Vegas with a sci-fi and fantasy convention, Titanicon. Midnight Louie sees that the cat Hyacinth is going to be there, so he breaks in and discovers a body on a catwalk. Matt goes on a date with Janice Flanders and visits the Las Vegas Hilton and the Star Trek: the Experience. Molina asks Matt to take Mariah to the convention, which he does, and runs into Temple and Shirley from his old job at Contac. Rafi Nadir is also working there as security. Midnight Louie provides the impetus to solve the killing of the Khatlord. Kitty the Cutter shows up and threatens Max. She wants his soul.
Midnight Louie claims to be a Scorpio, born Oct 31.
In addition to the many references to existing sci-fi/fantasy realms, CND also makes up new ones, namely the Kohl Kompendium, Space Trooper Bazaar, Khatlord Suzerain, and Uthrellian Lionx.
