|‘Star Trek: The Next Generation’ Reunion Set for Wizard World Chicago 2014|
Jonathan Frakes, LeVar Burton, Michael Dorn, Marina Sirtis, Brent Spiner, Gates McFadden Added To Celebration At Rosemont Convention Center
It has been 25 years since “Star Trek: The Next Generation,” hit the air. Now, six main members of that historic show will reunite as 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 attend Wizard World Chicago Comic Con, Aug. 22-24 at Rosemont Convention Center.
The series, which ran for seven seasons from 1987 through 1994, garnered 18 daytime Emmys and was a hugely successful follow-up to the original “Star Trek” from two decades earlier. The seven stars are also scheduled to appear at this month’s Austin Comic Con in what would be the first gathering of the group in the U.S. since “TNG” first aired.
