The must-see panel of Comic-Con and WonderCon Anaheim, as profiled on NPR’s All Things Considered, returns, but this time it’s personal. Who will duke it out for the highly coveted Smackdown title this year? Can the Starship Enterprise defeat an Imperial Star Destroyer? Will Rogue One be assimilated by a Borg cube? Will the Nostromo be taken over by Rathars? And will the Jefferson Starship ever win anything (not to mention, did they actually build Caprica on rock and roll)? Here from sage classic spaceshipologists Ashley E. Miller (Thor, X-Men: First Class), Steven Melching (Star Wars Rebels, Star Wars: The Clone Wars), Kay Reindl (Dead of Summer, Scream), Christian Gossett (The Red Star), Daren Dochterman (Hollywood conceptual illustrator), Jose Molina (The Tick, Agent Carter), Robert Meyer Burnett (The Hills Run Red, Free Enterprise), Bobak Ferdowsi (JPL’s “Mohawk Guy”), Scott Mantz (Access Hollywood), and Mark A. Altman (St. Martin’s The 50 Year Mission, Tor Books’s Slayers & Vampires).
