I’ve never taken a selfie. Okay, that’s not entirely true. I recently took a close up photo of part of my beard because I was stoked about how much grey has started showing through (I can’t wait to be a grizzled old man who sits on his porch and yells at neighborhood kids, that’s been my life goal since, well, since I was a kid). And when I was in Mexico for grad school once I tried to take a panorama picture of myself in front of the massive bowl of the high mountain desert I found myself in, but it was super bright and just looks like I’m scowling with some hills in the background. However, Star Trek, as in most things, has won the selfie wars, and everyone else just needs to throw up their hands and quit right now.
At the recent Wizard World Comic-Con in Chicago, there was a Star Trek: The Next Generation panel, which was, oddly enough, hosted by William Shatner, who has little or nothing to do with TNG. At a point right before the crew mounted the stage for the festivities, LeVar Burton got everyone together and posed them for a selfie. (Or a group selfie? Is that a thing? Is it called a groupie?) The result, as you can clearly see for yourself, is pretty rad.
