Set Your Nostrils To Cry: Wil Wheaton Gives A Touching Speech At Star Trek Cast Reunion

Awwwwww

These are the days I most wish we had transporter technology. If we did, I wouldn’t have missed the cast of Star Trek: The Next Generation reuniting at the Calgary Comic and Entertainment Expo for the first time in twenty years. Yes, as a Trekker, it would have been amazing to witness that first-hand but thanks to the internet, we can still check out the happenings. For instance, the moment Battlestar Galactica actor Aaron Douglas got up to ask Wil Wheaton, who played young Wesley Crusher on the series, what it felt like being on stage with them again after having left when he was eighteen. Seriously, grab a tissue now.
