Is there a reunion TV special planned?

2. The Original Spock's Brain - April 29, 2012

And first. ;-)

3. Legend of Link - April 29, 2012

Wish I was there!

4. Legend of Link - April 29, 2012

There had better be a tv special

im tearing up :”(
JJ Abrams How could you deny the human species intelligent Star Trek TV series, is that art that I know and love dead, I think with Fringe you’ve proved that you can bring a credible sci-fi show to life. Do so with Star Trek I beg of you.

6. Agotnes - April 29, 2012

It was a great evening event. It was an amazing time, and a great way to remember and celebrate TNG. I’m still very proud to be a fan of TNG!

There’s no evidence that JJ Abrams is “denying” the world a TV series.

8. webitube - April 29, 2012

Alex, thank you for your terrific coverage! It’s the next best thing to being there!

9. PEB - April 29, 2012

#7…thank you

i LOVE these guys, all of them. Grew up on them, and I’m actually watching First Contact on bluray right now at…1:29AM but I’ll just be honest, I couldnt see them in anymore movies. I’m sure to some that makes no sense, since TOS cast was pretty aged during their last voyage on the big screen but I just…I dont know, looking at these shots and vids I just dont know if I would’ve really wanted to watch that unless they were used as older versions of themselves kind of like they were in Countdown (Ambassador Picard and General Worf, etc)

10. The Great Bird of the Galaxy lives! - April 29, 2012

An amazing show. Brilliant cast, and crew. I do believe It would be be profitable, both monetarily, and intellectually, if it were to return to television. The next generation of fans should be given a history lesson in Star Trek. Continue with the USS Titan. A pilot that would conclude a successful ten year mission. A story that would conclude with Riker Commanding the next Enterprise. The F.

A one off TV special wouldn’t be satisfying enough. What we want is a three TV film trilogy.

12. Vulcan Soul - April 30, 2012

Damn, these photos ruined my childhood memories ;) Ironically, Patrick Stewart (the oldest cast member to begin with) is the ONLY one who roughly still looks the same as in the series!

Oh, and the black framed glasses disease has struck here again… News flash, guys: if thousands and thousands of actors and other self-proclaimed “artists” are wearing it, it AIN’T cool anymore…

13. NL-NaeZ - April 30, 2012

live long and prosper, TNG crew… You are THE best crew!

14. CmdrR - April 30, 2012

I know that’s a Calgary cap, but… um, which team is Denise Crosby playing for these days? Just asking.

15. Admiral Kent - April 30, 2012

Frakes has dropped a lot of weight…and Wheaton looks puffy (too much homemade brew he keeps tweeting about). I actually think these guys are aging better than the original crew.

16. phil - April 30, 2012

alberta is beautiful country, much better than beige, dirt colored, avondale arizona.

17. phil - April 30, 2012

i want outta here, please help!

18. phil - April 30, 2012

mercy kill me.

19. phil - April 30, 2012

avondale arizona sucks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

20. phil - April 30, 2012

sorry for spamming i kinda lost interest in trek after the 3rd season of ds9, although i caught up with them later on from renting the episodes at 99 cent video which was at 91st ave camelback phoenix az.

21. phil - April 30, 2012

it has been closed now for 3 years.

22. Colin Charisma - April 30, 2012

I dearly love the TOS crew, but lets face it the TNG guys are pure magic together.

23. CmdrR - April 30, 2012

Weaton does kinda look like the love child of Frakes and Grover Cleveland. Darn these temporal causality loops!

24. Dave in RI - April 30, 2012

After seeing those pics, I wonder if Frakes has stopped referring to Stewart as “Old Baldy”. Looks like he’s on his way to being Old Baldy himself.

Hey, us baldys have to stick together! :-)

25. the captain - April 30, 2012

These guys are the best. I love it when they pop up in other places, like when Marina Sirtis appeared out of nowhere on the (pretty bad) show Make It Or Break It. Or Gates McFadden in Muppets Take Manhattan–it’s quite special.

26. Prince of Helium - April 30, 2012

McFadden and Sirtis… still hot. Yup, I would.

27. Lt. Bailey - April 30, 2012

I cannot wait to see how the TNG reunion will be at the Aug Vegas con. So far there is no Sir Patrick or Wil Wheaton listed as attending but it is still early.

28. Canadianknight - April 30, 2012

Lucky enough to be there!

When DeLancie’s voice rang out with his flower delivery for “John Luck Picerd” the place went insane…. what an awesome awesome moment.

Had tears in my eyes watching them all together on stage.

One thing off my bucket list…

29. DS9 IN PRIME TIME - April 30, 2012

@28 I envy you for being able to see that. It brought a tear to my eye seeing the pictures and video. Great memories!

30. CarlG - May 3, 2012

It really makes me quite unaccountably happy that they’re all still friends.
