Best part? George Takei – aka, Captain Sulu – will be hosting the spectacular event with Leonard Nimoy.

First up for the evening lineup is a conversation with Leonard Nimoy (Spock) at 7:45PM (EST) followed by the world television premiere showing of Star Trek Into Darkness starring Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto.
