Hi, as a TNG fan my highlight of the Destination Star Trek convention was the special TNG reunion talk hosted by William Shatner with almost the entire TNG crew except Patrick Stewart (Picard) and Jonathan Frakes (Riker), unfortunately.

The panel was organized as a Q&A session, which is the usual format at a convention. So the work of entertaining the audience was in fact split between the fans and the actors and it is hard to say who was more amusing ;)

Fans never give up

One of the funniest and inevitable questions directed to Brent Spiner (pronounced [Spainer] and not [Spinner] btw) was if he would come to a fan's private birthday party. Fans never give up ;)

I have learned that Brent is not only a great mime but he can also imitate Patrick Stewart's voice :P which was hilarious.

Other questions ranged from what other roles in the Star Trek franchise each actor would like to play, what they miss most from the time when they were recording the show, or who they will take with them if they were stranded on a deserted island.

Star Trek Technology

It was also mentioned that TNG was able to foresee technology that became a reality today like the tablet computer or iPad. Wouldn't a real Holodeck also be cool? I guess other technology such as voice recognition will also reach the level of Star Trek sooner or later while other things will remain fiction such as beaming or the warp drive ...

I think we could have discussed so many more things but unfortunately the session was closed after an hour and it was time to party.

I wanted to ask the TNG girls Deanna Troi and Dr. Crusher in the case if Captain Kirk happened to be on their Enterprise and tried to seduce them - would he succeed?

My favorite actor is from TOS Leonard Nimoy, from the new movies Karl Urban, Brent Spiner from TNG and foremost VIKI from the NEXT XENARATION ♥ ;)
