Star Trek Convention Promises All 5 Captains On One Stage

By: Amanda Crum - April 18, 2012

This October promises to be a life-altering one for those lucky Star Trek fans with the means to travel across the pond.

A new convention has been announced in celebration of the 25th anniversary of Star Trek: The Next Generation, and there are two key things you need to know: it’s in London, and all 5 captains from the show will appear on one stage to give a talk…for the first time ever.

Patrick Stewart, Scott Bakula, Kate Mulgrew, Avery Brooks and the original, incomparable William Shatner will be attending the event, which starts on October 19th and goes through the 21st. Ticket information is available here (prices are set in pounds, obviously).


The announcement sent Twitter and other social media sites into a buzzing frenzy.
