|Six ‘Star Trek: The Next Generation’ Crew Members To Reunite @ Wizard World Nashville Comic Con|
Fans of “Star Trek: The Next Generation,” the highly successful 1987-1994 follow up to the original “Star Trek” television series, are in for a special treat as six of its stars reunite at Wizard World Nashville Comic Con, September 26-28, at the Music City Center. Jonathan Frakes (“Commander William T. Riker”), Levar Burton (“Lt. Commander Geordi La Forge”), Michael Dorn (“Lieutenant Worf”), Marina Sirtis (“Counselor Deanna Troi”), Brent Spiner (“Lt. Commander Data”), and Gates McFadden (“Dr. Beverly Crusher”) will be on hand for a celebration of the 20th anniversary of the program’s final episode.
The bridge crew members will appear all three days of the event, greeting fans, signing autographs, posing for photo ops and conducting interactive Q&A sessions for fans. Nashville Comic Con also features “Star Trek” star William Shatner, appearing on Friday and Saturday, Sept. 26-27.
“Star Trek: The Next Generation” focuses on the 24th century adventures of Captain Jean-Luc Picard aboard the U.S.S. Enterprise (NCC-1701-D). This incarnation of the famous starship is much larger than the one captained by James T. Kirk a century earlier, and, accordingly, it carries a larger crew complement: 1,012 men, women…and, surprisingly, children. This era’s Starfleet Command believes that men and women are more likely to sign up for long-term exploratory missions if they think of their ship as home. Thus, Picard’s crew enjoys many of the comforts they’d have otherwise left behind, including a wide variety of recreational opportunities, “replicated” food dishes to suit every palate, and quarters large enough to share with spouses and offspring. There are schools for the children and a bar (stocked with synthetic alcohol, or synthehol) where the adults can unwind. However, the ongoing mission—no longer limited to a mere five years—remains virtually the same as it was during Kirk’s time: to seek out new life and new civilizations, and to boldly go where no one has gone before. The show won an astounding 18 Emmy Awards during its magnificent run.
