Star Trek TNG 30th Anniversary in Las Vegas

Hello Everyone, I'm a sucker for these Star Trek conventions. Heres one from August with The Next Generation Cast. You know the score. It TNG's 30 Year special anniversary in 2017. What makes this Las Vegas panel so awesome has got to be the laughs.

Brent Spiner forgets he's the Godfather of Gates McFadden child!!! Good Grief, LOL I mean shes sitting right beside him when Spiner opens his mouth the wrong way. Let's just say (Dr. Beverly Crusher) was not impressed with Data. Now, that's what I call a major goof but funny. Check out Patrick Stewart for his reaction but despite the X-factor, we're all friends here.

So sit back and geek out and enjoy Star Trek. Levar Burton, Marina Sirtis, Michael Dorn, Denise Crosby and John DeLancie are present. Johnathan Frakes couldn't make it.

Live Long and Prosper.

Star Trek Discovery - Klingon Alien Lifeforms

Ready for adventure Jason Isaacs, Michelle Yeoh, Doug Jones, and Sonequa Martin-Green stroll down the corridor of Science vessel USS Discovery NCC 1031. Are we over dosing on Star Trek Discovery yet?  Our defenders, friends, and protectors of Earth are a long way from home!

Lorca: “You know what we need to do…”
Burnham: “We need to win.”
Lorca: “That’s the spirit.”

Star Trek Discovery Co-showrunner Aaron Harberts has affirmed that Star Trek Discoveries Klingons "aren't just the enemy." War isn't enough to quell the warring appetites of howling Klingon warriors from crying havoc in the universe! (STD season one establishes the Klingons)

What led Jason Isaacs as Captain Gabriel Lorca in this "menagerie," a chamber with his collected ancient weapons and relics. Is he trapped in a cage or testing the forcefield?

Captain Gabriel Lorca: The work we do is hard. It is not with out sacrifice. We are a long way from home. But I know it is sacrifice worth making.

So what gives? Mary Chieffo, who plays Klingon commander L’Rell, explains everything: Apparently, war with the Klingons?. An ancient Klingon house led by T’Kuvma (Chris Obi) will cause major intergalactic chaos which is right smack down Harry Mudd's neck of the woods.

CBS All Access airs Star Trek Discovery on 24th Sept, 2017. Expect the unexpected.

Who's going to make the next move in this face off with the Klingons? I guess friendly hailing frequencies are totally out of the question.

SAREK: …the Klingon Empire has been in disarray for generations… Great unifiers are few and far between, but they do come. Often such leaders will need a profound cause for their followers to rally around.

Remember who said "These are Klingons! They'll attack!"

Answer: Klingon  K'Ehleyr (Susie Plakson) starred in Star Trek TNG The Emissary/The Schizoid Man/Reunion/. She was brilliant.

Is Star Trek Discovery re-creating Klingon synergy based on Dorns and Plakson's characters, K'Ehleyr and Worf seen seated here?

K'Ehleyr telling Worf
Burnam to T'Kuvma: We strive towards this dream of peace where all species can share common ground. Yet no dream will protect us from you.


Who changed Gene Roddenberry's mind from not having a Klingon on the bridge of Captain Picard's USS Enterprise NCC 1701-D?
