The Destination Star Trek event will not only mark the first time in 10 years that the U.K. will have its own designated Star Trek event, but it will also bring together each of the series’ captains. Sir Patrick Stewart, Avery Brooks, Kate Mulgrew and Scott Bakula will appear on stage together.

The event will also feature guest talks, autograph opportunities, photo shoots, replica sets, prop displays, future fashion shows, stunt demonstrations, costume displays and themed parties.

“The Star Trek fan base in the U.K. 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, executive vice president and general manager, CBS Consumer Products. “In Media 10, we have a great partner with experience putting on amazing live shows, and Destination Star Trek is destined to join many other CBS properties that have been transformed into vital fan destinations.”

“We are thrilled to be working with one of the biggest brands in the world in the shape of Star Trek,” says Suzy Pallett, Media 10. “We are busy lining up an incredible schedule and Star Trek London promises to be an unmissable event!”
