Highlighting the three-day celebration of Gene Roddenberry’s science fiction franchise is a plethora of famous Trek alumni appearing in person. Headlining the event are Walter Koenig (Chekov from The Original Series and the six movies it spawned) and Jeri Ryan (Seven of Nine on Star Trek: Voyager). They’ll both appear on stage for panels and will be on hand for autographs and photo ops (Saturday, December 13).
Next Generation fans have plenty to look forward to, with an onstage appearance (Sunday, December 14) by none other than Commander Riker himself, Jonathan Frakes. Additional TNG cast members participating in the convention include Michael Dorn (Worf), Marina Sirtis (Troi), Denise Crosby (Tasha Yar), and John de Lancie (Q). A Saturday night special event (separate admission ticket required) will find all five of them, joined by Brent Spiner (Data), together for what is sure to be a memorable, lively Next Generation reunion.
Other featured guests include Rene Auberjonois (Odo on Deep Space Nine) and Tim Russ (Tuvok on Voyager). Star Trek: Enterprise fans won’t be forgotten, with appearances by primary cast members John Billingsley (Dr. Phlox) and Anthony Montgomery (Travis Mayweather). Recurring cast member of both Enterprise and Deep Space Nine Jeffrey Combs will also appear.
Of course, the fun extends beyond the celebrity presentations and autograph signings. Costume contests, a “no minimum bid” memorabilia auction, and the famous vendor’s room (where attendees can buy all manner of Trek-related collectibles) are all part of the experience.
