Sci-Fi/Comic conventions are fun as hell, but sometimes, weird things happen. In addition to breaking the record for the largest gathering of Star Trek fans anywhere, the latest UK Trek-themed convention gains a place at the top of the “WTF?” list and has surely become a legendary moment for actor John Barrowman.
While hosting this past weekend’s Destination Star Trek Five Captains panel – where all five Star Trek captains were under the same roof answering fans’ questions and such – the Doctor Who and Torchwood star asked former Enterprise captain Scott Bakula to sign one of his butt cheeks. Being the sport that he his, Bakula proceeded to semi-permanently sign Barrowman’s torpedo bay under the watchful eyes of fellow Sci-fi captains Sir Patrick Stewart, Avery Brooks, Kate Mulgrew and captain James T. Kirk himself, William Shatner.
We can’t see everyone’s faces, but judging by the image posted by the @Team_Barrowman twitter page, at least Shatner is having a grand old time of it all. It’s something like this that could only happen at a convention.
