Dragon Con makes big announcement
Dragon Con has made an update to its guest list for 2014.
Patrick Stewart, an actor famous for playing Capt. Jean-Luc Picard on the “Star Trek: The Next Generation” TV series, plans to attend this year’s convention.
An social media announcement from Dragon Con says, “We are beyond excited to have the great Captain Jean-Luc Picard!”
Dragon Con is held in downtown Atlanta every Labor Day weekend. This year’s convention is Aug. 29 through Sept. 1. It claims to be the, “Largest, multi-media, popular culture convention focusing on science fiction and fantasy, gaming, comics, literature, art, music and film in the universe.”
Stewart arguably is the most well-known cast member of “Star Trek: TNG.” Since the series ended, he has starred in numerous other roles, most notably as professor Charles Xavier in the “X-Men” films.
