All five Star Trek captains will appear at the first official Star Trek event to take place in the UK in a decade this October.
Destination Star Trek London will run from October 19th to 21st at ExCeL Exhibition Centre. It is being organised by Media 10 with special events company, Showmasters, and supported by Paramount Home Entertainment (UK), CBS Action and Star Trek Official Magazine.
William Shatner (Captain Kirk), Sir Patrick Stewart (Captain Picard), Avery Brooks (Captain Sisko), Kate Mulgrew (Captain Janeway) and Scott Bakula (Captain Archer) will appear on stage together for the first time during the showcase.
"The Star Trek fan base in the UK is one of the biggest in the world and it has waited a long time for the convention to return, so we wanted to make sure we did it right," explained Liz Kalodner, EVP and general manager of CBS Consumer Products. "In Media 10, we have a great partner with experience of putting on amazing live shows, and Destination Star Trek London is destined to join many other CBS properties that have been transformed into vital fan destinations."
