William Shatner will headline an all-star panel of past “Star Trek” actors with moderator Bryan Fuller at Comic-Con this month.

The Hall H panel will also feature Michael Dorn (“Star Trek: The Next Generation,” “Star Trek: Deep Space Nine”), Brent Spiner (“Star Trek: The Next Generation”), Jeri Ryan (“Star Trek: Voyager”) and Scott Bakula (“Star Trek: Enterprise”).

Among the other “Star Trek”-related promotions at Comic-Con are an art exhibit, “50 Artists. 50 Years” in San Diego’s Gaslamp District, and a partnership with MAC Cosmetics. Other “Star Trek” panels slated for Comic Con include “Trek Talks: Science, the Smithsonian and ‘Star Trek'” (Friday, July 22, 6:30 p.m., Room 5AB); “‘Star Trek’: The Rodenberry Vault” (Saturday, July 23, 12:30 p.m., Room 5AB); “Trek Talks: ‘Star Trek’ and NASA Boldly Go” (Saturday, July 23 6 p.m., Room 5AB); “‘Star Trek’ the Official Starships Collection: Designing and Filming Starships” (Saturday, July 23, 3 p.m., Room 28 D/E); and “‘Star Trek’: Five Decades of Comics” (Friday, July 22, 1:30p.m., Room 8).

    “Paramount’s upcoming feature film “Star Trek Beyond” will also have its world premiere at Comic Con.” Could’ve fooled me. The Australian premiere has just taken place today.

    ha. as usual ds9 the best of the series get ripped off. yes mchael dorn played worf in season 4-7 but he’s representing tng rene auberjonois would have been great.

    • Bob says:

      DS9 was hardly the best in the series, I actually consider it the worst. It’s simply a soap opera that bores incredibly fast. Might as well call it, Star Trek: The Soap Opera.

      • Ian Hirst says:

        Bob – you’ve obviously not seen the likes of The Die is Cast, In the Pale Moonlight or In Purgartory’s Shadow. Star Trek at it’s best.
