October 9, 2016 – Sara Barton & Anita C. Wang
It’s Sunday, the last day of New York Comic Con 2016. SBR correspondents Sara Barton and Anita C. Wang venture to the final frontier; going boldly where no journalist has gone before- The Star Trek Beyond Booth.
We were greeted by the lovely Star Trek Ambassador, Jordan Kessel. Anita and I co-interviewed Jordan. Among this stellar interview, we discussed the eternal burning question; the original Star Trek series v the new films? Jordan happens to be a big fan of the original Captain James T. Kirk, played by William Shatner.
We had the chance to see Jordan at work and to try out the booth ourselves. There were a photo and video station. NYCC attendees relished the opportunity to pose with Star Trek film props, including, the famous ray gun. In case you’re wondering, that’s actual Captain’s seat from the Star Trek Beyond movie set.
It was an experience that was truly out of this world.
