Mission: New York Day One – Nicholas Meyer, DS9, Enterprise

The first day of Mission: New York kicked off on the main stage with a wonderful Deep Space Nine cast reunion. The boys of Enterprise had the crowd bursting with laughter over their antics and stories from the set. However, the highlight of the day was a short question and answer session with Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan writer/director Nicholas Meyer, who shared stories of the film’s production before debuting his director’s cut in 4K UHD.

REVIEW: The Starfleet Academy Experience

For all of you who have fantasized about going to Starfleet Academy, there’s finally a way to get a little taste of it: The Starfleet Academy Experience. It launched in May in Ottawa, which makes sense. Canada has a lot of appreciation for Star Trek: this is the country that gave us Trek postage stamps (first, before the U.S.) and now Star Trek coins. It also gave us William Shatner, James Doohan, and me, so I admit I have a little bias there.

This June 2-5, over 100,000 people braved the 110+ degree heat to attend Phoenix Comicon, which hails itself as the signature pop-culture event of the southwest. It was my first experience of the Phoenix convention, and I was delighted at the plethora of Star Trek events to cover! Hit the jump for Part I, in which Tony Todd and Larry Nemecek delighted fans on Friday, June 3rd.
