John de Lancie lands at Emerald City 2014!

John de Lancie

Emerald City Comiccon announced today that Q himself will be at next year’s big event! For mortals, that means John de Lancie will be appearing all three days at this show.

This versatile actor made his way into the science fiction scene by playing the irrepressible and omnipotent anti-hero in Star Trek: The Next Generation, Deep Space 9 and Voyager. His on-screen panache made this character a unique fixture in the lexicon of this series and his ability to immerse himself into the roles he plays make him an actor that must be followed.

But with a career spanning nearly 40 years, some long-time television viewers may recall his appearance in The Six Million Dollar Man and Emergency! He’s become a fixture in the pop culture scene with roles that includes Stargate SG-1, but he shows that he has a voice to remember in Duck Dodgers and Young Justice. To hear his take in how television entertainment has evolved will no doubt be one huge panel worth attending, and to find out what he will be doing next will be equally exciting.

And fans of this series can finally watch the second season set, Duck Dodgers: Deep Space Duckir?t=wiupgeatthmo 20&l=as2&o=1&a=B00CM0EQC4, that’s set for July 23rd release.

A few people were fortunate to find this two-disc release defrosting a day early. And it is worth playing right away to recall all the idiocy that this duck represents. Eight years may seem long for those fans waiting for this video release (which began back in February) but the wait is certainly worth it. Hopefully the third season will not be too long in coming.
