In the centrepiece of the weekend, Star Trek: Celebrating 50 Years will take over Hall H on Saturday, July 23 (2p.m. – 3p.m.), when the legendary William Shatner (Star Trek) and Star Trek alumni Scott Bakula (Star Trek: Enterprise), Michael Dorn (Star Trek: The Next Generation, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine), Jeri Ryan (Star Trek: Voyager) and Brent Spiner (Star Trek: The Next Generation) take the stage to reflect on 50 years of Star Trek and its indelible mark on our world, as well as what’s to come as the franchise gets ready to boldly return to the small screen. The conversation will be moderated by Bryan Fuller, executive producer of the new Star Trek television series coming to CBS All Access, following its network premiere in January 2017.
Fans will be able to truly immerse themselves in a full weekend of Star Trek events and activities at the world-famous convention, including six panels, the first showing of the 50 Artists. 50 Years. art exhibit, a first look at MAC’s new Star Trek makeup collection, and exclusive merchandise. Also, fans can join the conversation and celebration on social media using the hashtag #StarTrek50.
