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”).
