Their primary function is to give major press outlets access to Star Trek's finest so they write about the event and get extra people through the doors. They are similar to panels but as the questions aren't from hard core fans it has a totally different feel from the fan orientated questions. Still, we feel very lucky to attend these. Here's what happened... William Shatner is first up talking about social media - Kirk wouldn't use it. How he feels young, but not as young as he used too. About 50 years of Star Trek. There is a magic about Star Trek. He then even said that he saw an interview this morning with "these girls" (pointing to us in the first … Continue Reading ››
