One of the more interesting rumors coming out of last weekend's WonderCon is the suggestion that the crew of Star Trek: The Next Generation may appear in J.J. Abrams' upcoming Star Trek movie. (Possible spoilers ahead!)

The always-reliable has previously reported that the setup of the new film takes place in the post-Star Trek Nemesis era before going back in time to the period before the original Star Trek series.

On Sunday, Latino Review reported from the IDW Comics panel, quoting the panelists that "part of the movie will take place with the Next Generation cast, and to look out for that. Another guy on the panel gave him a quick 'uh, oh' look, and smiled."


Here's what TrekMovie reported: "We have previously received no indication that there are any cameos of any Next Generation-era actors or characters. Just to be sure, we double checked with reliable sources and can confirm that there are definitely no TNG cameos in the new Star Trek."

Who's right? Stay tuned! Star Trek opens May 8.
