It’s been a while since the Europe-based Destination Star Trek convention made its way east of Birmingham, but next year the popular event will beam back to Dortmund, Germany to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Star Trek: Voyager.
Returning to the Messe Westfallenhallen in Dortmund, Germany, the three-day Destination Star Trek convention will run from May 8 – May 10, 2020 and will center around the silver anniversary of Star Trek‘s fourth live-action series, headlined by Captain Janeway herself: actor Kate Mulgrew, the first event’s first announced guest.
Here’s the official announcement from convention organizer Massive Events, in association with Showmasters Ltd and Media 10 Ltd:
