Kirk Impersonation Winner: John Chase
Finalists: Ed Marra, Kevin Ploth, Rory Scholl

Our panel of judges--including comedy star and noted Shatner impersonator Samm Levine and Rod Roddenberry, son of Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry—whittled the Kirk impersonation entries down to four, and the final vote was in the room at the end of the Captain’s Panel on September 17. You can see the finalists for yourself.

 

 

The debates were heartfelt and passionate. The vote by applause in the room was very, very close, but at the end of the day Captain James T. Kirk was declared the greatest Star Trek leader in history!

Wade Bowen (Sisko) Host, The Rules of Acquisition
