Star Trek will be storming San Diego Comic Con with a 50th Anniversary Panel and much more.
William Shatner, Michael Dorn, Scott Bakula, Jeri Ryan and Brent Spiner will headline the anniversary panel, which will be moderated by New Series Executive Producer Bryan Fuller in Hall H on Saturday, July 23.
In the centerpiece of the weekend, Star Trek: Celebrating 50 Years will take over Hall H on Saturday, July 23 (2p.m. – 3p.m.), when the legendary William Shatner (Star Trek) and Star Trek alumni Scott Bakula (Star Trek: Enterprise), Michael Dorn (Star Trek: The Next Generation, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine), Jeri Ryan (Star Trek: Voyager) and Brent Spiner (Star Trek: The Next Generation) take the stage to reflect on 50 years of Star Trek and its indelible mark on our world, as well as what’s to come as the franchise gets ready to boldly return to the small screen. The conversation will be moderated by Bryan Fuller, executive producer of the new Star Trek television series coming to CBS All Access, following its network premiere in January 2017.
