Apparently, the Star Trek: The Next Generation cast got together this past weekend at the Calgary Comic Expo for the first time in many, many years to celebrate the show’s 25th anniversary. The reunion includes LeVar Burton, Gates McFadden, Brent Spiner, Wil Wheaton, Jonathan Frakes and Sir Patrick Stewart, which is pretty much everybody you’d want to get together and reminisce about the series (and apparently Michael Dorn, too, as I have been informed). Part 1 is above; parts 2 through 5 are after the jump. I will say there is at least one guest star who shows up at the beginning of part 5 that you’ll probably enjoy appearing out of nowhere. Anyways, your lunchtime viewing has been… engaged.
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
