You wanna see Bill Shatner? Turn on Boston Legal. We prefer pop-cultural sci-fi icons who arent quite so, uh, iconic, and this years Phoenix Comicon will dish out a heaping helping of special guests from the pop-cult fringe. These include Richard LeParmentier, the Death Star Commander in the original Star Wars whos best known as the recipient of Darth Vaders first Force Choke; the Star Trek: The Next Generation triad of Data (Brent Spiner), Deanna Troi (Marina Sirtis), and Wesley Crusher (Wil Wheaton); Noel Neill, Lois Lane on the 1950s TV series The Adventures of Superman; the smart-n-sassy Erin Gray from the late-70s series Buck Rogers in the 25th Century; and Aaron Douglas, Chief Tyrol/Final Five Cylon on Ronald Moores kick-major-cheek reimagining of Battlestar Galactica.
