00000000-buzz-aldrin-star-trek50

Press Release:

Join us in celebrating the anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission to the moon with legendary astronaut and American icon, Buzz Aldrin! George Takei, best known for his role as Mr. Sulu in Star Trek: The Original Series), will join Buzz to host this special black-tie event which will be held at the Apollo/Saturn V Center at Kennedy Space Center, FL on July 23, 2016. Featuring fellow Star Trek alumna Nichelle Nichols (Uhura), long-time space news reporter John Zarrella (CNN), who will serve as the evening’s emcee, and NASA astronauts from each era of manned space flight, this Gala will celebrate the 47th anniversary of the historic Apollo 11 mission as well as the 50th anniversary of Star Trek: The Original Series.

During the evening you will have the opportunity to view NASA restricted property, such as the launch pads and Vehicle Assembly Building, on your private transportation from our host hotel to the Apollo/Saturn V Center, enjoy a reception and open bar, receive an exclusive professional photo with our hosts, dine underneath one of the only remaining Saturn V rockets in the world (the largest rocket ever made which took Neil Armstrong, Michael Collins, and Buzz Aldrin to the moon in 1969), enjoy a decadent dessert spread and specialty coffee, explore the award-winning Apollo/Saturn V facility which houses historic relics of the space program, and experience an engaging program with Aldrin and Takei as they share their experiences during a time when space travel transitioned from fantasy to reality.

Also included will be an Apollo 11 Memorabilia Silent Auction and special raffle, available only to gala attendees.

Event proceeds benefit Buzz Aldrin’s ShareSpace Foundation, a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to igniting children’s passions for science, technology, engineering, arts, and math by providing educators with interactive and engaging hands-on educational activities.

George Takei Added to Star Trek Reunion at the April 2015 Great Philadelphia Comic Con

George Takei GPCC

Press Release:

Delaware Valley, PA –

GEORGE TAKEI BEAMS IN TO THE GREAT PHILADELPHIA COMIC CON: STAR TREK REUNION PLANNED FOR APRIL 3-5th SHOW!

George Takei, known internationally to fans as Star Trek helmsman Hikaru Sulu and as a Pop Cultural Icon; joins his fellow former crewmembers Nichelle Nichols and Walter Koenig in making a rare group appearance in the Philadelphia area at the inaugural Great Philadelphia Comic Con.

George Takei is a social media sovereign and civil rights advocate on his first trip to the Philadelphia area in years. Best known as Hikaru Sulu from the original Star Trek television series and later movies of the same franchise has more than 8 million Facebook followers and growing. He is not only the voice of the Howard Stern show, but also an equality rights movement leader as he continues to fight for equal rights for all in America.

Nichelle Nichols, a real-life space advocate. Known to fans as Lt. Uhura in the original Star Trek series, has lead an extraordinary life. As Uhura, Nichelle became a role model for African-American women and helped pave the way towards breaking down racial barriers. So important was this role, that no less a person than Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr himself encouraged her to stay on the show when she considered leaving for a career on the stage.

Walter Koenig, is known as Pavel Chekov in the original Star Trek series and later Alfred Bester on the series Babylon 5. Rumor has it that his resemblance to musician Davy Jones (of Monkees fame) guaranteed him the role with Star Trek producers hoping his good looks would appeal to younger audience and attract more viewers.

Other special events occurring at the show include the largest Mighty Morphin’ Power Ranger actor reunion in the Northeastern United States. Popular comic book artists such as the Legendary Jim Steranko, Mark Morales, JK Woodward, Mark McKenna and Ande Parks to name a few will also be in attendance. In addition, multiple actors from popular shows such as Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Angel, Arrow, The Walking Dead, Agents of Shield, and more to be announced!

Making a fun debut will be an exclusive trading card set, to be collected during the show. The cards will be available at various tables throughout the showroom, highlighting guests appearing at the show from Artists to Celebrities, and fans will be encouraged to collect the set throughout the weekend.  As always we encourage families to bring their children, who have free admission (12 and under) and all participants in the Children’s Cosplay event are guaranteed a prize!
