Wizard World Austin Celebrates 25 Years of Star Trek: The Next Generation

Patrick Stewart Jean Luc PicardThere isn’t much more that I can say about Wizard World: Austin, except that I wish I was able to attend! Though there are many fine actors (I’ll get to that), artists, and other personalities the thing that I’m going to miss the most is the reunion of the cast of "Star Trek: TNG.” Well, at least eight of them will be taking the stage the first time in the U.S., including Stewart (Captain Picard), Jonathan Frakes (Commander William T. Riker), LeVar Burton (Lt. Commander Geordi La Forge), Michael Dorn (Lieutenant Worf), Marina Sirtis (Counselor Deanna Troi), Brent Spiner (Lt. Commander Data) and Gates McFadden (Dr. Beverly Crusher). Heads up, though. This is an extra event that you will have to pay for. Which is kind of screwy if you ask me. As if you’re not going to be spending enough money already. Hopefully, you get an autographed photo with that paid admission.


Oh! And about fine actors! Does Wizard World buy into the Syfy Channels marketing line of “Imagine Greater?” They must when you have the wrestler CM Punk showing up. I think they’ve been doing this for several years now, but to me, it just doesn’t fit. And then this abomination! Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino (“Jersey Shore”) will be there. REALLY?!? Oh, yeah. He’s got a comic book out. Or more to the point, his image and likeness will be “gracing” a comic book. Dear, Lord.


Now, that I’ve got that out of the way. Was searching the internet this morning and came across this great video. Just when you didn’t thing you could stand to here GANGNAM STYLE again, along comes this video. One of the best movies ever! It’s “Lo Pan Style!” And James Hong, the original Lo Pan, makes an appearance!

  1. Going to Austin for Wizard World?
  2. Going to the Star Trek: The Next Generation Reunion, even though it’s an extra charge?
  3. How do you feel about Wrestling Stars and Jersey Shore being represented?
  4. What do you think about Lo Pan Style? Huh? Huh? What’d I tell ya?
