The third Destination Star Trek begins this Friday in London, promising to be a huge event full of panels, screenings, events, parties, exhibits…and of course photo ops and autographs. The show runs from Friday October 3rd through Sunday October 5th at the ExCel Centre in London’s East End.

There will be around three dozen celebrity guests, representing every Trek TV show and the Trek movies, both on screen and behind-the-screens. Highlights include a screening and Q&A with Nicholas Meyer and an opening ceremony (hosted by Jonathan Ross) on Friday. Saturday features a Star Trek: The Next Generation reunion with Patrick Stewart, Brent Spiner, Gates McFadden, Michael Dorn, Marina Sirtis, LeVar Burton, John deLancie, Denise Crosby and Colm Meaney (moderated by William Shatner) on Saturday.

Let’s hope Mr. Nimoy is doing well.

I find it interesting that William Shatner is hosting all of these TNG panels at the conventions. I know he and Patrick Stewart are good friends.


AMEN! He probably needs more rest now, and has to cut back on the convention circuits.

Borg Regeneration Chambers… other words, the bar?

I hear Shatner might be in the next……..


4 – Yeah, I heard that… but I doubt anyone will ask him about it at the convention.

I’d go, but I don’t have any of those funny L’s in my bank account.

The one in Frankfurt earlier this year was pretty good
