2016 marks the 50th anniversary of Star Trek! This panel will discuss where Star Trek has been -- in all of its TV incarnations, in old-school and "reboot" films, in books and comics -- and what are its highlights. We will also speculate about Star Trek's future, including Star Trek Beyond and the new 2017 Star Trek series. What are your Star Trek favorites? Where do you hope Star Trek is -- and isn't -- boldly going? Come celebrate with us and talk Trek!
