All Five Star Trek Captains Come Together at Philly Comic Con

Last weekend, all five of Star Trek‘s television captains appeared together at Wizard World’s Philadelphia Comic Con.

This marks the very first time the five captains, William Shatner, Patrick Stewart, Avery Brooks, Kate Mulgrew and Scott Bakula, have appeared together at such an event.

The next scheduled appearance of the captains is scheduled for the Destination: Star Trek event, which takes place October 19-21 in London.

    Shouldn’t there be six, Captain Pike from the reboot movie?

      If you consider every on-screen captain there’d be over a hundred people there. I think what they’re saying is the lead television captains.

       He’s obscured by a random lens flare.

      Pine was not a TV captain….movie only….thus far anyway.

    incorrect, they were all together at Dragon*Con 2010 in Atlanta–granted i don’t think they did a panel together or anything, but they were all there

    who’s the guy that ate Wm Shatner?

     Sisko was more of a landlord, than a Captain of a ship.  He doesn’t really count.   And the wormhole was a total cheat.  Real Captains spend weeks at high warp in order to get to that sweet green spacegirl tail.

      yeah, then there’s that whole dominion war thing…

      Oh really? Read this and then tell us all that: O Captain, My Captain: A Look Back At Deep Space Nine’s Ben Sisko

       And yet, most objective critics will tell you that Star Trek: Deep Space Nine had the richest mythology and the most complex and engaging story arc of any of the Star Treks. Maybe staying put has its advantages.

        Didn’t the captain take a ship out a couple of times on the show?

      You’ll be like that one day, so I wouldn’t talk. Also, show some respect.

        Does being old automatically warrant respect? How about being  a terrible actor?

    • fjpoblam

      Set one phaser to pudgy. (Yep, I been hit by old… But so’s the phaser.)

      There’s one on GeekNation’s website of the whole panel–take a look there. 🙂 I’m soooo glad someone put it up, because I would have loved to have gone and couldn’t. 🙁

    I’ve always had a crush on Scott Bakula but Picard has always been my favourite captain.  Make it so!
