LeVar Burton, best known to Trek fans as Star Trek: The Next Generation‘s Geordi La Forge, will be hosting this year’s IndieCade Red Carpet Awards Ceremony and Reception.

“As an artist and storyteller, I wanted to support IndieCade and independent game developers,” said Burton. “As a passionate gamer, I am a longtime fan of the creative visionaries that are the heart and soul of the gaming community, which is why I’m particularly happy about my association with IndieCade.”
