Just a few months after learning that the Destination Star Trek European convention will be heading back to the UK next October, today we learned that the event will also be returning to Germany in April 2018!

After nearly four years away from the country, Destination Star Trek Germany heads to the Messe Westfallenhallen in Dortmund, Germany next year from April 27 – 29, and already has a notable lineup of announced Trek guests.

Destination Star Trek, Europe’s Official Convention for Star Trek fans, will return to Germany on 27th to 29th April 2018 at The Messe Westfallenhallen in Dortmund to celebrate over 50 years of Star Trek.

Star Trek legend, William ‘Captain Kirk’ Shatner will be headlining the whole weekend, meeting fans, posing for photos and signing autographs. He will be joined by a reunion of many of the main cast from Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, which celebrates its 25th Anniversary in 2018.

Due to appear so far is Nana Visitor, Rene Auberjonois, Terry Farrell, Nicole De Boer, Max Grodenchik, Aron Eisenberg, Jeffrey Combs, Casey Biggs, James Darren, Vaughn Armstrong, Cirroc Lofton and in her first European appearance Camille Saviola.

Also appearing will be Walter Koenig, Robert Duncan McNeil, documentary makers Adam Nimoy and Dave Zappone plus writer/producer Ira Steven Behr with more guests still to be announced.

Destination Star Trek was last in Germany in 2014. Boasting one of the largest fan-bases in the world, Germany has a special relationship with Star Trek and it was only natural that with a new series to celebrate that the event should come back to it’s mainland Europe home.

Destination Star Trek is a fully immersive experience where fans can meet their heroes from the show, have photos with them and get autographs, listen to their amazing stories and even step foot on the Bridge of the star ship Enterprise itself.

    I think it’s fair to say with 80% of the guests up to now being exactly the same as the UK event, there isn’t going be a lot of crossover in terms of who will be visiting.

    Also, going forward, the organisers would do better to alternate these conventions between Britain and Germany each year to maximise their customer numbers. If they both remain bi yearly, having them the same year makes no sense.

      Won’t the U.K. pulling out of the EU make travel between Britain and Germany less convenient? Right now it’s very simple with just EU documentation, but soon there will be all the customs lines and immigration lines at the airports and rail stations like in the old days.

        It might very well go that way. I didn’t vote for such lunacy though.
