Olympics aside, this may be the biggest London event of the year. At least for Trekkies.
The actors who played captains on the five live-action "Star Trek" television shows - William Shatner, Patrick Stewart, Avery Brooks, Kate Mulgrew and Scott Bakula - are set to appear on stage for the first time. The five are due to attend the "Destination Star Trek London" fan convention, which takes place between October 19 and October 21 (get tickets here).

Fascinating. But you missed the original USS Enterprise Captain. Of course a little time travel would be required for Jeffrey Hunter to attend. ;)
He was a cool guy and all, but Shatner's hothead/over the top portrayal of Kirk probably made it more enduring.
I’ll be seeing Mulgrew in August at ShoreLeave 36.
Now, Trekkies, name all the Starfleet captains. There was a card subset of 9 (including James Cromwell, Paul Winfield, etc), but there were more “captains”.
Hint: Brian Dennehy’s daughter was one. So was one of the original ST actors.
I remember that commie Cromwell playing the world leader of a planet that wanted to jail the super human soldiers of their homeworld as their existence embarrassed their application to the Federation.
But send us pics of your time with Kate M on FR. :)
Combine Kirk’s gung ho methodology with Picard’s analytic nature and you either have the greatest Captain in the universe....or a very confused individual ;)
Oh yea! Was that Captain Christopher Pike? He was in another several episodes.
What, he can’t take a two day trip to London?
