The first day of Destination Star Trek is happening right now in London. This morning there was a press photocall with most of the celebrities, and William Shatner was there dodging questions about the new Star Trek movie. See below for details and tons of photos from the press event.
Shatner Sticking With His Story On Star Trek 2016
This morning Destination Star Trek 3 kicked off in London with a press photocall and the highlight was the first captain himself, William Shatner. In a strange crossover, Bill was set up on the bridge set of the USS Enterprise D, which is on display at the event.
Bill took a few questions from the crowd including being asking about the upcoming Star Trek movie, slated for release in 2016 and currently in pre-production. At his last convention appearance (in Nashville last Saturday) Shatner made big news by confirming the rumor that there is a possible role for him in the movie. However, it seems that the subsequent call from JJ for him to ‘keep quiet‘ has taken as Bill repeated almost word for word what he said in the interview yesterday with the Metro, essentially that he would be "delighted" to be in the next Star Trek
movie and that he had been asked not to speak about it.
Ryan, Sirtis, and Greenwood on the bridge
DST also brought out Voyager’s Jeri Ryan, Next Gen’s Marina Sirtis and the new Captain Pike Bruce Greenwood, all to have their photos taken on the Enterprise D bridge.
More Press Call Photos From DST 3
There was also a separate press call for photos and some questions for many of the other celebrities appearing this weekend in London. Nothing new was really said, mostly the usual stuff about how Star Trek is inspiring and offers a hopeful future. There was also some fun banter between the various cast members debating over what was the best Star Trek show, with John deLancie staying mum since he appeared on so many of them.
And here are yet even more pix from the photo call.
