Having well-surpassed his original goal, Levar Burton is wasting no time gathering his friends and peers to kick off the series return. And in conjunction with his new goal ($5 million), he’s also offering attendance to some special live-reading episodes, so if you’ve got a hankering to see Commander Riker or James T. Kirk — and an extra $1,200. — you’re in luck.

Reading Rainbow’s first episode will feature “The Men of Star Trek”: Jonathan Frakes, Brent Spiner, Michael Dorn, and Robert Picardo.


Episode Two gathers Star Trek women: Kate Mulgrew, Jeri Ryan, Marina Sirtis and Gates McFadden.


And two additional episodes will each feature a starship commander; William Shatner, and Sir Patrick Stewart (Oh please bring your favorite friend, Sir Ian!).


Stewart’s live reading will take place in New York; the rest will be completed in Los Angeles. Details here.
