William Shatner @ Comic Con 2012 Philadelphia

 If anyone is the Top Dog of Star Trek, it's Bill Shatner!

All the other cast members envied his Broadway 1-Man show, and wanted to play him in it!

He had a number of funny competitive moments with Scott Bakula. Really funny stuff!

Shatner was really sentimental towards the audience and even got helped a lucky fan to get a hug from Patrick Stewart despite management's protesting of it. He KNEW exactly how to work the audience, and was a true master of what he does.

He LOVED to discuss ANYTHING, was very good at it, but was also very good about letting others to speak as well.

He spoke about a documentary which he's made & produced about Trekies & Star Trek fans called "Get a Life" and in the process of it he said he learned that it meant something much much more than what it meant to the cast members, and that by us actively participating in the process that it gave hope to millions, inspired people to create & invent marvelous things and accomplishments, and that we were all a part of a living mythology which was meaningful.

Many of the stars told of instances in which they were chosen to speak to real astronauts and were so grateful to do so.

Yet again, Shatner looks really good in person, the lighting and the camera doesn;t do him any justice.

Avery Brooks @ Comic Con 2012 Philadelphia

 When the show 1st started , 1 of the 1st questions was directed towards him. He gave the most beautiful and moving answer that was about 3-4 min' long.

After that, he answered all questions with 1 word answers: yes, no, or just in 1 word, or a funny comment and lots of funny gestures and facial expressions.

This became a running joke after a while, and the camera man would often defer to questions which got no answers and awkward silence by panning back to Avery many many times over.

This would make the audience wild with laughter that the stars seemed to oblivious as to understand what was so funny!

The 1 event (other than Comic Con its self) I was waiting for was the show event with ALL 5 Star Trek Captains.

Special thanks to my friend Steve Marcus, otherwise I'd never have been able to photograph these at all.

The lighting in The Theater (Comic Con Philadelphia Convention Center in Center City) made it a challenge to photograph, and also caused the actors to look older than they actually look to the naked eye, in person.

1 person in particular whom was absolutely radiant & glowing in an Elven vibrance was Scott Bakula whom was absolutely breathtaking & gorgeous! But, the camera just didn't do his good looks any justice.

The person whom photographed the best was Patrick Stewart. He was very photogenic, and every frame of him looked rather good, even when not in an ideal pose, gesture, or otherwise.

 The actors got bored waiting for the show to start, and the seating started slowly. So, they all hopped on scooters and drove around the theater everywhere like funny clowns!

They had very jolly personalities.

At 1 point, a fan told a story about herself, and then asked Patrick Stewart for a hug. The management seemed very unhappy about it, then droned on about rules i.e. paid stuff but, William Shatner shouted "Give her a hug! Go giver her a hug!"

Then, he kept on insisting to "Give that girl a hug!" Until he began chanting "Give her a hug! Give her a hug! Give Her a hug!" Then, the audience joined in!

Finally, Patrick Stewart stood up in a blaze of glory, as tho' a super hero himself, and jumped off the stage like Super Man! Apparently VERY physically fit for a man whom kept making remarks about being so old. And, he hugged the lady!

The audience went wild with cheers!
