Star Trek's Comic-Con Panel Is Going to Be Insane
< >
Comic-Con is rapidly approaching, which means all your favorite properties are leaking details about what fans should expect. And the best out of all of them might just be the 50th Anniversary Star Trek panel.

The franchise has a total of six panels planned for this year's event, but the headliner is definitely the 50th Anniversary one, which will take place on Saturday, July 23 in hallowed Hall H. The panel will be moderated by Bryan Fuller, who began his now-storied career as a writer on Deep Space Nine and Voyager and is heading up the new TV series, and will include guests from throughout the franchise's history.

We're talking William Shatner, Scott Bakula, Michael Dorn, Jeri Ryan, and Brent Spiner. That's right, Data, Worf, Seven of Nine, and Captains Kirk and Archer will all be sharing the stage to talk about the many generations of Star Trek. It's going to be awesome, and totally fitting for a franchise that's been proudly boldly going where no man has gone before since 1966. But just in case that's somehow not enough for you, here's some of the other awesomeness Star Trek has planned for the Con.
