As if having the opportunity to meet William Shatner and wasn't enough, Wizard World Chicago Comic Con today announced the addition of five Star Trek guests, Avery Brooks, Walter Koenig, Brent Spiner, John De Lancie and Daniel Stewart, to the event, August 19-22 at the Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, Ill.
Brooks, an actor, jazz musician, opera singer and college professor, is perhaps best known for his television roles as Benjamin Sisko on “Star Trek: Deep Space Nine,” Hawk on “Spenser: For Hire” and its spinoff “A Man Called Hawk,” and his film role in American History X.
Koenig’s professional acting career spans more than forty six years of stage, television and film work. His wide-ranging roles include everything from a teenage gang leader (“Alfred Hitchcock Presents”) to a middle-aged Tom Sawyer (“The Boys In Autumn”). He may be best recognized for his recurring television portrayals both of the hated, intensely driven Alfred Bester (“Babylon 5”) and the likeable, perpetually cheerful Pavel Chekov (“Star Trek”).
Spiner began his 15-year run (on television for seven seasons and in four feature films) portraying Lieutenant Commander Data on “Star Trek: The Next Generation.” He reprised his role in the spin-off films, Star Trek Generations (1994), Star Trek: First Contact (1996), Star Trek: Insurrection (1998), and Star Trek Nemesis (2002).
De Lancie is best known for his recurring role as Q on the various Star Trek series, and as Frank Simmons in Stargate SG-1. He was a regular guest star on Star Trek: The Next Generation as the iconic all-powerful Q. He also holds the distinction of being one of the few characters to appear in three separate shows in the franchise (as Q; TNG, DS9 and Voyager).
Daniel Stewart appeared as “Young Batai” in "Star Trek: The Next Generation" and has numerous theatre credits as well as guest spots on "Space: Above and Beyond," "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" and "Without a Trace."
The five join other notable Star Trek guests who have already committed to Wizard World Chicago Comic Con, including Shatner, Bobby Clark, Natalija Nogulich, John Savage and Malachi Throne.
|Chicago Comic Con runs from August 19-22, 2010 at the Rosemont Convention Center. This major pop-culture convention brings together fans of comics, toys, collectibles and offers a chance to see actors, writers, artists that each industry has to offer. |
