Multi-Generational Star Trek Stars at Comic-Con, Plus Riker Sings!

Wil Wheaton + Sock

So first off, I guess it was Wil Wheaton’s birthday on Tuesday (he’s so shy about it). He’s a square 36 years old–Happy Birthday!

In case there was any question that Star Trek (including Wheaton’s The Next Generation) continues to hold sway over all of geekdom, the following pix from last week’s Comic-con convention should clear that up. There seems to have been good representation across its many incarnations (6 series and 726 episodes in all).

Since I couldn’t make it to San Diego this year, I am instead window-surfing as it were, watching everybody else’s geeky good time via Flickr. Yes, I’m jealous of Eddie. Here’s a sampling of Trekkie treats I’ve found…

Tuvok and Chekov talk about their shared consonants…

But keep in mind, not everyone in a starfleet outfit is legit–I don’t
think any of these 3 have actually ever been on the bridge of a starship:

Ditto on this lineup, they’re packin’ Razrs not Communicators (and definitely not Tricorders)

Wheaton himself shares this video by R. Stevens of Riker (aka number 1 aka Jonathan Frakes) favoring a presumably late-night crowd with a rendition of Ain’t Misbehavin’
