The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - PLAY TV -

of Star Trek will be given the ul­ti­mate treat this Oc­to­ber when all five TV cap­tains ap­pear at a London con­ven­tion. Des­ti­na­tion Star Trek London is the first of­fi­cial Star Trek live event in the UK for 10 years. To mark the oc­ca­sion, or­gan­is­ers are pre­par­ing to stage a spe­cial event. Wil­liam Shat­ner, 81, Sir Pa­trick Ste­wart (pic­tured), Avery Brooks, Kate Mul­grew and Scott Bakula – who have com­manded op­er­a­tions in each of their re­spec­tive se­ries based on the TV fran­chise – will ap­pear to­gether for fans. ‘‘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,’’ says Rob Nathan, mar­ket­ing di­rec­tor for Me­dia 10 which or­gan­ises the events in col­lab­o­ra­tion with CB. Nathan says the London event will be big­ger and bet­ter than many other Star Trek events. ‘‘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,’’ says Liz Kalod­ner, gen­eral manger of CBS Con­sumer.
