Fedcon – TNG Cast Panel

The Highlight of the Fedcon weekend for us and many others was The Next Generation talk with LeVar Burton, Michael Dorn, Marina Sirtis, Gates McFadden, Colm Meaney, Denise Crosby and John de Lancie.

TNG talk Fedcon

We’re fortunate enough to have seen them together a few times now but it’s always a treat. The report between them is legendary. They are friends who enjoy each others company and make each other laugh. That friendship and humour is passed on to the audience and the result is an electric atmosphere and memorable panel.

We’re not sure if someone had snuck a Horga’hn into LeVar’s luggage or something but he had sex on the brain during that panel!

The next question was from an actress in the audience who asked how they overcame nerves before going on stage. LeVar’s response was “I find a good wank helps!” – seriously!! We started to type it on twitter then chickened out!

Then John de Lancie started to recall a story with an actress which involved him accidentally ripping a whole in his trouser pockets, which he attempted to cover his dignity whilst his character confess he was attracted to her. It was very animated and had the audience in stitches!

Most poignant statement of the weekend and sadly topical with a few of the Star Trek Discovery reactions:
