Panel description: In a franchise marked by epic quests, perhaps none is more poignant or powerful than Star Trek: Voyager’s quest to get back home to the Alpha Quadrant after being thrown thousands of lightyears from all they know and love. Star Trek’s first female captain, a woman of STEM and champion of diversity, leads her crew through the perils of the uncharted Delta Quadrant as a Federation ship alone, with the parallels between their journey and our current political and social climate (not to mention battling giant viruses!) being more relevant than ever in 2020, the 25th anniversary of the series. Join Garrett Wang (Ensign Harry Kim of Star Trek: Voyager), Dr. Lucila Rosines (Pediatric & General Radiologist, Kelsey-Seybold Clinic), Kayla LaFrance (Operations Support Officer Flight Controller, NASA), Kira Knotts (shark biologist, New York Aquarium), Thomas Marrone (Lead Starship Artist, Star Trek Online), and host Amy Imhoff (media manager, sought-after Trekspert, & feminist troublemaker) as they discuss Voyager’s epic journey and its lingering impact on Star Trek, STEM, politics, and more.
Panelists: Garrett Wang, Dr. Lucila Rosines, Kayla LaFrance, Kira Knotts, Thomas Marrone, Amy Imhoff
