Oh captain, my captain
The first Contact Day salute is an introductory announcement and presentation by the one and only Patrick Stewart. Everyone is your favorite Star trek Captain but Stewart’s Jean-Luc Picard is the only person to have a straight-to-the-trek spinoff to his name. Take it, Kirk!

Stewart and Wheaton will be joined by Brent Spiner (Data), Alice Craig (Borg Queen), and Jonathan Frakes, who directed the film in addition to the role of Ryker.

Wheaton is back, and so Mike McMahon and Paul F. Along with Tomkins are Fracks and Spinner. McMahon is the creator behind this Star Trek: Lower DeckThe first Trek animated comedy, and Tompkins voices Dr. Migalemo, one of the characters on the show.
The panel is appropriately about comedy Star trek Universe. You know, those lighter, funniest subplots you’ll see in a few episodes, and go along with the more serious main storyline. The data is in a fair share of those, so it makes sense for the spinner to be part of this conversation.
