Destination Star Trek London
Destination Star Trek London is a convention in the UK, and will be the first official Star Trek live event in the UK for 10 years.
To mark the occasion all five Star Trek Captains will appear on stage, together, for the first time. That is correct William Shatner (Captain Kirk), Sir Patrick Stewart (Captain Picard), Avery Brooks (Commander Sisko), Kate Mulgrew (Captain Janeway) and Scott Bakula (Captain Archer) will all be at the same convention and on the same stage.
Rob Nathan, Marketing Director for Media 10 said:
“It’s not just the five captains. There will be a host of other guests from the series. The fans will be able to get up close,” ”We are going to make this really interactive. There are going to be stunt displays, we are going to recreate some sets, and get some original sets. People will be able to sit on the starship bridge with members of the cast,”
The organizers of the event are expecting 10,000-15,000 attendees from all over the world. The convention will take place at the ExCel London Exhibition Center on October 19-21st. Tickets go an sale April 30th. If you’re interested in seeing all five Trek Captains at once, I would suggest booking your hotel, travel, and con tickets early, because I have a feeling this convention is going to fill up very quickly.
