STAR TREK UNIVERSE Programming Set for NYCC Virtual Event

The annual New York Comic Con is going virtual and ViacomCBS has revealed the Star Trek programming scheduled for the online event next month.

Similar to this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, NYCC was officially canceled in August due to the ongoing worldwide Corona Virus pandemic. When it was canceled, convention organizer ReedPOP announced that the event would move online. ViacomCBS has revealed that the Star Trek Universe will be part of the event’s Metaverse on Thursday, October 8th, beginning at 12 pm ET. Panels will feature the cast and crew from Star Trek: Lower Decks, Star Trek: Discovery, along with some surprise guests. All panels will stream on the NYCC Youtube channel.

Discovery stars Sonequa Martin-Green, Doug Jones, Anthony Rapp, Mary Wiseman, and Wilson Cruz along with series newcomers David Ajala, Blu del Barrio, and Ian Alexander will join series co-showrunners and executive producers Alex Kurtzman and Michelle Paradise, to discuss what’s next for the crew of the U.S.S Discovery.
