Legendary Star Trek Actor, Brent Spiner, who is set to reprise his iconic role of “Data” in the upcoming Star Trek: Picard series next year, will beam down to meet fans at this years Destination Star Trek event.
Destination Star Trek, or DST for short, is Europe’s Biggest Official Star Trek Convention and will see many Trekkies and Trek alumni gather for a weekend of jam packed fun, including panels, photo sessions with iconic Trek locations and much more! If you’re a Star Trek fan in the United Kingdom, you won’t want to miss this event.
Friday August 30th originally brought some disappointment for event-goers, as Trek Legend Jonathan Frakes, who was scheduled to appear in October, was mentioned as having to pull out of the show due to conflicts with his directing schedule. Frakes is set to direct Episode 8 of Star Trek: Discovery Season 3. Luckily for those already planning to attend, the DST Team were on hand to cure the disappointment with the announcement of Brent Spiner appearing at the show instead.
Further announcements about additional guests are still expected to happen, with many fans wishing for Sir Patrick Stewart to make an appearance. Stewart will reprise his role as Jean-Luc Picard in 2020 for Star Trek: Picard, so far he has not been confirmed as attending but who knows, anything is possible.
Fans attending Destination Star Trek on the weekend will be able to purchase a photo session with Brent Spiner as well as other guests such as Star Trek:Discovery’s Anson Mount via the event website. Destination Star Trek takes place in Birmingham, United Kingdom on the 25th-27th at the NEC.
