David Warner is making his way to Las Vegas this summer, and he certainly has a lot of Star Trek to talk about.
Warner is among a solid group of talent added to the Official Star Trek Convention in Nevada, hosted each year by Creation Entertainment. The Emmy-winning actor has appeared in “Star Trek V: The Final Frontier,” “Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country” and “Star Trek: The Next Generation,” playing everything from a human stuck on a desolate planet to a Klingon leader assassinated in an attempt to prevent peace and a Cardassian obsessed with the number of lights behind him when torturing Starfleet captains.
Joining Warner in the recently announced list are Avery Brooks from “Star Trek: Deep Space Nine,” Robert Duncan McNeill and Ethan Phillips from “Star Trek: Voyager,” Denise Crosby, Catherine Hicks, Sally Kellerman, Paul Lynch, Cirroc Lofton, Jim Metzler, Ronald B. Moore, Eric Pierpoint and Don Stark.
Crosby played Tasha Yar and the Romulan leader Sela in TNG. Hicks appeared as Gillian in “Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home.” Kellerman was Dr. Elizabeth Dehner in the original “Star Trek” episode “Where No Man Has Gone Before.” Lynch directed 10 episodes of TNG and DS9 including classics such as “The First Duty” and “Q-Less.”
Lofton played Jake Sisko in DS9. Metzler played Chris Brynner in the DS9 two-parter “Past Tense.” Moore — not to be confused with the producer who would go on to recreate “Battlestar Galactica” — is a visual effects master who has worked on TNG, “Star Trek: Voyager” and “Star Trek: Enterprise.” Pierpoint appeared in five episodes of ENT, as well as the “Voyager” episode “Barge of the Dead,” the DS9 episode “For the Uniform” and the TNG episode “Liaisons.”
Stark was Nicky the Nose in the 1996 film “Star Trek: First Contact” as well as Ashrock in the 1993 DS9 episode “Melora.”
And, of course, McNeill and Phillips were Tom Paris and Neelix on the former UPN show.
VegasCon, as it’s commonly called, takes place July 31 to Aug. 3 at the Rio Suites. For ticket information, click here.
