My Star Trek panel at NYCC 2014

If you missed “Star Trek at 50,” my one panel at this year’s New York Comic Con, now you can enjoy it from the convenience of your computer or mobile device, courtesy of that modern wonder known as YouTube.

I talked about the past and possible future of Star Trek on television with moderator Scott Mantz, author Ed Gross, and actors Chase Masterson and Vic Mignogna.

The video was divided into three segments, collected here for your viewing enjoyment. (Ignore the erroneous opening description text, which lists the wrong panel participants.)

You’re welcome.

NYCC 2014 Wrap-Up (#SFWApro)

I’ll keep this short: my New York Comic Con went great!

Kevin Dilmore and I sold and autographed a lot of books at our signing in the Simon & Schuster booth on Thursday afternoon. When we were done, I wandered the show floor for a while, and then had the pleasure of being introduced to IDW Publishing’s new Star Trek comic book editor, Sarah Gaydos.

On Friday, I had lunch with the ever-charming Mr. Dilmore, after which I spent five hours in the Simon & Schuster booth hand-selling copies of our Star Trek books and personalizing them for fans — including one for actor Jesi Mullins (pictured at left), in whose likeness and honor I named and modeled a character in Section 31: Disavowed. By the time I was done, there were only three copies of Disavowed left on the table.

When I returned to NYCC on Saturday evening, I was pleased to see that Disavowed had sold out, and that only 10 copies of Star Trek: Seekers #1 remained on the table. I then went downstairs to be part of the panel “Star Trek at 50: From ‘The Cage’ to Today.”

Our moderator, Access Hollywood film critic and segment producer Scott Mantz, did a splendid job of keeping the energy level high and the discussion moving, and my fellow panelists — journalist/critic Ed Gross and actors Chase Masterson (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine) and Vic Mignogna (Star Trek Continues) — all were erudite and entertaining.

Overall, I’d call this year’s con a success, and I’m already looking forward to next year’s show.

This just in! I have accepted an invitation (for which I shamelessly begged) to join a panel at New York Comic Con:

seekers1Star Trek at 50: From “The Cage” to Today

On the evening of Saturday, October 11, from 7:15PM–8:00PM, in Room 1A24, I’ll join Mark Altman (Free Enterprise), Scott Mantz (Access Hollywood), Edward Gross (“The Fifty-Year Mission”), Vic Mignona (Star Trek Continues), Steve Melching (Star Wars: The Clone Wars), David E. Williams (Geek Magazine), and Chase Masterson (Leeta on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine) to discuss the long, storied history of Star Trek.

REMINDERI will be signing with fellow Star Trek author Kevin Dilmore at the Simon & Schuster table in Booth #1828 on Thursday, October 9, from 3PM–4PM. Copies of my most recent novel, Star Trek: Seekers #1, and advance copies of my upcoming novel Section 31: Disavowed will be available for purchase at the con.

seekers2_croppedAlso on sale will be Star Trek: Seekers #2. Kevin will be signing those, and he will have pre-signed bookplates from his writing partner and hetero life partner, Dayton Ward, so that you can have both authors’ scribbles in your book.

I’ll also be happy to sign any of my books you already own and want to bring with you to either event.

So, if you’re coming to New York Comic Con, you now have two chances to see me in action and snag autographs. See you at the show, folks!

 

New York Comic Con signing — Thursday only!

ST.Section.31.Disavowed.CvrIf you’ll be attending New York Comic Con this year, you won’t want to miss the first day — because that’s when I and Kevin Dilmore will be signing at the Simon & Schuster table in Booth #1828!

We’ll be there on Thursday, October 9, from 3PM–4PM, to sell you copies of Star Trek: Seekers #1 by yours truly, and Star Trek: Seekers #2, by Kevin Dilmore and Dayton Ward.  Kevin will have adhesive bookplates signed in advance by Dayton, so if you haven’t yet picked up signed copies of the Seekers novels, this will be your best chance to snag both at once.

Also scheduled to go on sale exclusively at New York Comic Con will be a limited supply of advance copies of my new novel Section 31: Disavowed. If that doesn’t get your Trek-motor revved up, I don’t know what will.

See you on the con floor, folks!
