Today Denver Comic Con announced it will host a reunion of six of the cast members of “Star Trek: The Next Generation” to be moderated by William Shatner. The ticketed panel also includes Jonathan Frakes, LeVar Burton, Denise Crosby, Michael Dorn, Gates McFadden and Marina Sirtis. Brent Spiner, Patrick Stewart and Will Wheaton will not able to join the rest of the cast in Denver due to scheduling conflicts.
“Even though Star Trek: The Next Generation only originally aired for seven seasons, fans have come to have deep attachments to these characters,” said convention director Dr. Christina Angel. “We’re thrilled to be able to provide a forum where fans and cast members can interact—including, of course, the captain of the reunion panel: William Shatner.”
The Saturday, June 14 evening event will be held in the Bellco Theatre. The tickets range from $50-$150 and can be purchased at www.denvercomiccon.com; a paid admission into the con is required, and tickets are still available for Denver Comic Con. Fans unable to purchase tickets to the reunion panel can meet many of the cast members for individual autograph sessions and photo opportunities at Celebrity Summit on the convention floor. Many of the guests will also participate in additional panels based on other work.
DCC has a complete and ongoing list of announced guests at its website, which includes Adam West and Burt Ward of the 1960’s “Batman” series, Stephen Amell from the CW’s “Arrow,” Karl Urban from Star Trek and Lord of the Rings films, Bruce Campbell of “Burn Notice” and “Evil Dead” and Michael Rooker from “The Walking Dead,” in addition to today’s announced guests.
