Peter Weller and Dan Werthimer are the latest additions to the Star Trek: Mission New York guest list. Weller played Admiral Alexander Marcus in Star Trek Into Darkness and also the xenophobic John Frederick Paxton in the Enterprise episodes “Demons” and “Terra Prime.” Werthimer is the esteemed Chief Scientist of SETI.
Set for this fall, ST:MNY will offer fans a mix of celebrity guests, real-world science figures, presentations and events. Weller join previously announced Trek guests Alice Eve, Karl Urban, Brannon Braga, Wlliam Shatner, Walter Koenig, Jonathan Frakes, Marina Sirtis, LeVar Burton, Terry Farrell, Michael Dorn, Gates McFadden, Nana Visitor, Rene Auberjonois, Armin Shimerman, Cirroc Lofton, Anthony Montgomery, Connor Trinneer, John Billingsley, Dominic Keating, Robin Curtis, Eugene "Rod" Roddenberry and Phil "The Bad Astronomer" Plait. They will all be on hand for talks, autographs and photo opportunities.
Werthimer, meanwhile, is the latest real-world science guest, following Jeff Volosin (NASA TESS Project Manager at the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center) and Matt Ritsko (NASA TESS Deputy Project Manager for Resources at the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center). Also on tap, as previously revealed: Hallmark will showcase their exhibitor exclusives and the FanBros, a/k/a the voice of the urban geek, will be in the house.
A three-day 50th anniversary event presented by CBS Consumer Products and ReedPop, Star Trek: Mission New York will take place September 2-4, 2016, in Manhattan.
