This is exciting news. The cast from Star Trek: Voyager will reunite in celebration of their 25th anniversary on Stars in the House, a daily live streamed series hosted by Seth Rudetsky and James Wesley to support The Actors Fund and its services.
Star Trek: Voyager premiered on January 16th 1995 and brought Star Trek fans a new captain, crew and a quadrant to discover. The ship was brought to the Delta Quadrant and the series focused on Voyager’s adventures while she tried to make her way home to the Alpha Quadrant while encountering new species along the way. Star Trek: Voyager also brought us the badass Captain Kathryn Janeway played by Kate Mulgrew.
Now Mulgrew, along with other cast mates, Jeri Ryan (Seven of Nine), Roxann Dawson (B’Elanna Torres), Robert Beltran (Chakotay), Robert Duncan McNeill (Tom Paris), Robert Picardo (The Doctor), Ethan Phillips (Neelix), and Garrett Wang (Harry Kim) are coming together May 26th at 8pm ET for Stars in the House. That is quite a Star Trek gathering. Fans will be able to interact as well. According to a press release, “Fans tuning in will be able to interact with the Voyager crew in real time as they recall favorite memories of their journey from the Delta Quadrant, and can donate to The Actors Fund for the chance to have their names read on air. And of course, like all episodes of “Stars in the House” – there will be LIVE music!”
Mulgrew said of the upcoming gathering, “This reunion will be both gratifying and novel: we are all alive, we are all congenial, and we are all still actors!” Picardo said, “I am delighted that the entire cast of ‘Star Trek: Voyager’ will beam in for a 25th Anniversary Reunion panel on Stars in the House to benefit The Actors Fund. Hope you’ll join us Tuesday, May 26th at 8 PM ET and support this important cause with a donation at the moment in time it will mean the most.”
You can tune in for Star Trek: Voyager’s 25th anniversary reunion on “Stars In The House”, Tuesday, May 26th at 8 PM ET on the Stars In The House YouTube channel and on starsinthehouse.com. For more information on the importance of The Actors Fund, see below.
