According to actor Wil Wheaton‘s Facebook page today, it is only three days until the 25th Anniversary Tour of Star Trek: The Next Generation Reunion begins. What does this mean? Well, it means that some of your favorite sci-fi stars will be touring/appearing to see fans in droves that will be wanting signatures for their collections, answers to their questions and cheesy photos with celebrities they don’t know personally.
Star Trek: The Next Generation fans are gathering for the Calgary Comic and Entertainment Expo. Event organizers scored a major geek coup: the first ever reunion of the principal cast. This stellar event will mark the 25th Anniversary of the series.
Actors Sir Patrick Stewart (Captain Picard), Jonathan Frakes (William Riker), Levar Burton (Geordi LaForge), Gates McFadden (Dr. Beverly Crusher), Marina Sirtis (Deanna Troi), Michael Dorn (Worf), Brent Spiner (Data), Will Wheaton (Wesley Crusher), Denise Crosby (Tasha Yar) will appear at Star Trek TNG EXPOsed (a special ticketed event on April 28 at the Stampede Corral).
“A lot of guys in the entertainment industry are looking at (the Calgary Comic Expo) now and thinking ‘How the hell did they pull that off?’ It’s like the little engine that could, right?” said founder Kandrix Foong.
So for those of you that can make it, please join The Next Generaton’s crew for an event for the history books. I wish I could be there, but I’d probably just drool on myself and scream with joy at Worf and Data in the flesh.
