Fans will also have the chance to join in on a photo-op and autograph signing session with Takei.

“We’re thrilled to have this show now take place in the spring, and excited to be able to welcome fans to come together again soon,” said Kandrix Foong, Managing Director of FAN EXPO HQ in Western Canada, in a release.

“George Takei is not only an iconic actor, but an extraordinary advocate for causes he believes in. I never miss a chance to catch his panels. You don’t need to be a Star Trek aficionado to appreciate his legacy or enjoy his incredible storytelling ability – we’re thrilled he’ll be joining us in March.”
