Star Trek fan proposes in front of Next Generation cast

A Star Trek fan surprised his girlfriend when he popped the question during a cast photo op at the Austin Wizard World Convention. Wil Wheaton who sitting next the women in question, posted the surprised couple’s proposal picture on Reddit.

Wil Wheaton gave a detailed account of the unexpected propose.

Wil wrote “About 30 minutes or so into this particular session, these two people came in. The girl went to stand between Patrick and Frakes, and the guy directed her to stand in the front, instead. All of us tried to figure out what was going on (usually it’s small kids who come to the front, usually sitting on Brent’s lap or Gates’ lap), and the guy said, “I really love Star Trek, but I love [her name] even more.” He got down on one knee, and proposed to her.”

“Marina started to cry, I felt like I was going to cry, and we all applauded and celebrated when she said “yes.” Apparently, they’d met Marina earlier in the day, and Marina had given him shit for not marrying her, so Marina was embarrassed about that.”

“Once we knew what was happening, it was awesome. I’m incredibly happy for these people, and I love that I got to be part of what is hopefully a moment they’ll celebrate and remember for the rest of their lives.”
