The lead actors who starred as the captains on all five Star Trek TV series gathered together for the first time ever last Saturday at Wizard World Philadelphia: William Shatner (Star Trek), Patrick Stewart (Star Trek: The Next Generation), Avery Brooks (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine), Kate Mulgrew (Star Trek: Voyager), and Scott Bakula (Star Trek: Enterprise). They truly took the audience where no fans had gone before, no kidding.
GeekNation’s own Clare Kramer got to moderate this historic panel and, short of the stage itself, I had the best seat in the house. Patrick Stewart almost ran me over with a go-cart. Here are a few of the many excited reactions people have tweeted about it this week:

Watch GeekNation’s video of the complete panel. After Clare gets her turn with each captain, hear what the audience members asked – starting with a horsey surprise. Tell us what you would have asked had you been there.
