In today’s boner-inducing geek news, Trekkies of the world can officially celebrate a long awaited dream, all five Star Trek captains (or rather, the actors who played them) will be appearing together for the UK’s fan convention “Destination Star Trek London” this October.
It will be the first official event at which they’ve ever done so.
For the less initiated who may not instantly realize who all five of those captains may be, they are: Captain James T Kirk, Captain Jean-Luc Picard, Commander Benjamin Lafayette Sisko, Captain Kathryn Janeway, and Captain Jonathan Archer. The roles were played by actors William Shatner, Patrick Stewart, Avery Brooks, Kate Mulgrew, and Scott Bakula, respectively.
The convention will be running from from Octover 19th-21st at the Excel Exhibition Center, and tickets go on sale starting April 30th.
Considering what a big deal this is to fans of the vastly popular franchise, one of the most successful of all time, expect tickets to be snatched up fast. Organizers are already expecting 10-15 thousand fans from all over the world to attend, and the captains won’t be the only special guests in attendance, as more are to be announced leading up to the big day.
For more information on the convention – which will feature photo and autograph signings, Q&A panels, parties, stunt displays, recreation of sets (as well as some original sets), and even a costume parade – you can visit the official convention website for “Destination Star Trek London” here, which went live just today.
Me? I want to know if Will Wheaton will be there…
