Garrett Wang, Dragon*Con 2009
Star Trek-related programming has been a part of Dragon*Con, the annual science fiction and popular arts convention held each Labor Day weekend in Atlanta, GA, since its early days. Nothing has prepared you for what we have in store for this year’s “Trek Track”.
Garrett Wang, best known for his role as Ensign Harry Kim in Star Trek: Voyager, has accepted the position of director of Trek Track. In his seven seasons on the popular series, Mr. Wang became a fan favorite as the clarinet-playing operations officer of the USS Voyager. A science fiction fan as well as a Star Trek insider, Mr. Wang will bring a fresh perspective to this year’s programming.
Andorians, and Borgs, and Cardassians, oh my! Beauties from all walks of the Federation territory and beyond will be competing for the title of Miss Star Trek Universe. When you are done admiring our beautiful contestants, join them and other Star Trek fans for a party of galactic proportions.
In addition, a number of well-known guests have been confirmed for Trek Track. From Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Avery Brooks (Captain Benjamin Sisko), Rene Auberjonois (Odo) and Armin Shimerman (Quark) will be in attendance. Jonathan Frakes (Commander Will Riker), Marina Sirtis (Deanna Troi), and John DeLancie (the enigmatic Q) will represent Star Trek: The Next Generation. More Star Trek guests will be announced on the Dragon*Con website as appearances are confirmed.
Trek Track will be based in the Sheraton Atlanta Hotel. Programming announcements for the Trek Track are available on this site in the near future, so check back soon. Ticketing and other convention information can be found at www.dragoncon.org.
