Guesting on this Anniversary panel were William Shatner (Captain James T. Kirk on Enterprise), Scott Bakula (Capt. Archer), Brent Spiner (Data on Star Trek – The Next Generation), Jeri Ryan (Seven of Nine on Star Trek Voyager), Michael Dorn (Worf) and the people behind the new show ‘Star Trek Discovery’, Rod Roddenberry (producer), Heather Kadin and Bryan Fuller.

There was a lot of talk about the new show, but Bryan Fuller was careful not to reveal to much about it, but did say that he was really happy to be working with Nicholas Meyer on the series.

William Shatner talked about a new series he was doing in which he interviews academics and scientists such as Professor Stephen Hawking who were inspired by ‘Star Trek’s’ forward looking vision of scientific advancement and an evolved human race.
