We are thrilled to add actor Dwight Schultz to our guest list for Retro Con 2017! Dwight has two very popular roles in the retro realm.

Most notably, Dwight played Captain H.M. “Howling Mad” Murdock in all 97 episodes of the hit 80’s TV series The A-Team! The seemingly insane former army captain was the A-Team’s resident pilot, and was a constant source of comic relief in every episode. His back and forth banter with B.A. Baracus (Mr. T) made for some of the funniest moments on the show!

Dwight is also well known for a reoccurring role in the Star Trek universe: Lieutenant Reginald Barclay! The character started out with anxiety and social issues, along with an addiction to the Holodeck. But he eventually found his confidence and became an upstanding member of the crew, while still retaining his trademark quirkiness. Dwight played the role in Star Trek: The Next Generation, the First Contact theatrical film, and in Star Trek: Voyager.

In recent years Dwight has kept busy as a voice actor, with roles such as Dr. Animo on Ben 10, Mung on Chowder, and Wyrm on Nickelodeon’s current iteration of TMNT. Dwight also had the opportunity to revisit the character of H.M. Murdock by voicing the character in the recent LEGO Dimensions A-Team game!

The USS Enterprise’s historic five-year mission continues with all new episodes of the original series. “Star Trek: Continues”, a new Trek series, beams down with exciting adventures of the Federation’s most heroic crew led by Captain James T. Kirk. The lighting and color of the highly accurate sets accentuate the equally detailed props and costumes, matching the original series that ran from 1966-69! With acting and stories that also replicate the original series, the adventures are sure to dazzle even the most die hard Trek fans. Witness now the untold morality plays that explore the final frontier and more importantly… the human condition. Fans of the original series will especially enjoy the pilot episode as a familiar guest star from the original series reprises his role in a sequel entitled “Pilgrim of Eternity”.

Chris is no stranger to Star Trek. As a child, he spent time on the sets of the original series with his dad, James “Scotty” Doohan. At 19 years old, Chris was asked to be in the first Star Trek movie, Star Trek: The Motion Picture, which was only the beginning of several appearances on that beloved ship. His most recent trek movie role put him in the transporter room of the newest Star Trek installment, “Star Trek Into Darkness”, which followed his role in J. J. Abrams’ “Star Trek” in 2009 when he shared the screen with the new Scotty, Simon Pegg.

Chris has also played several character voice-overs for the Starship Farragut animated episodes, including that of the iconic engineer himself. Chris is currently playing “Scotty” in the critically acclaimed web series, Star Trek Continues!
