Armin Shimerman (Quark) will also be in attendance to celebrate the iconic sci-fi series.
The three-day event will take place Oct. 19-21 at the National Exhibition Centre.
The event, created under license by CBS Consumer Products, will pay tribute to the characters and stories of the beloved series, as well as offer fans the opportunity to meet cast and crew, explore interactive exhibits and sit in on panel discussions.
This year, William Shatner (Captain Kirk) will headline the event. In addition, Armin Shimerman will appear in costume and make-up as the popular character Quark, a one-time event exclusive to “Destination Star Trek Birmingham” that will include photoshoots with attendees.
Fans will also be able to take command of the bridge on the U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701 or NCC_1701-D and see original props and costumes in the Destination Star TrekMuseum.
“For over five decades, ‘Star Trek’ continues to take us to the Final Frontier, it’s exciting times to be a fan,” says Mark Woollard, event organizer. “‘Destination Star Trek Birmingham’ will continue to celebrate what’s gone before and what is to come, so we can boldly go where no one has gone before.”
“Destination Star Trek Birmingham” is organized by Massive Events, in association with Showmasters and Media 10.
