William Shatner, aka Captain James Tiberius Kirk, will make his way to the Sun City this summer after canceling out due to the pandemic in 2020.

This summer, the El Paso Comic Con 2022 is celebrating its 40th anniversary with a smash-hit lineup featuring pop culture figures from Hall of Fame Wrestlers, artists, actors, and many more celebrities, including Ancient Aliens star Giorgio A. Tsoukalos.

Capt. T Kirk is no stranger 'round these parts; just last year, he became the oldest nonagenarian and first thespian ever to travel to space IRL courtesy of Jeff Bezo's Blue Origin's New Shepard. 

In a live interview during the Today show, the cultural icon spoke of how he was "thrilled, anxious, a little nervous, and frightened" of the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

William Shatner recently released a new album titled "Bill," an autobiographical collection of spoken word pieces, along with celebrating the 55th anniversary of Star Trek, which debuted on TV on September 8, 1966.

Like Shatner, actor Giancarlo Esposito of The Mandalorian will also be joining the lineup after having to drop off last year as well.
