This morning CBS announced they will be holding a panel at WonderCon for Star Trek: Discovery. The event, being described as a “Visionaries panel” will be held on Saturday, March 24th. Scheduled panelists include: Gretchen J. Berg & Aaron Harberts (Executive Producers & Showrunners); Tamara Deverell (Production Designer); Gersha Phillips (Costume Designer); Mario Moreira (Props Master); Glenn Hetrick & James MacKinnon (Prosthetics & Special FX Makeup); Jeff Russo (Composer); and Jason Zimmerman (VFX Supervisor).
Here is the official description:
Over 50 years ago, the world was first introduced to what would quickly become a cultural phenomenon. It was a television series that inspired developments in science and technology, broke social barriers and transported viewers around the globe to new adventures and uncharted frontiers. Now, STAR TREK: DISCOVERY follows in the footsteps of those that came before as it seeks to tackle social issues, inspire the next generation of dreamers and doers and reflect on Roddenberry’s vision of a hope for tomorrow.
The panel will be moderated by actress Mary Chieffo (L’Rell) and is being held on Saturday, March 24th in Room North 200A at 3:00 PM.
IDW Star Trek panel
Another WonderCon event of interest to Trek fans is the “IDW Publishing and Star Trek Comics: Keep on Trekkin'” panel. Here is the official description:
Focusing on all the great Star Trek comics coming out from IDW, panelists include group editor Sarah Gaydos, writers Mike Johnson, Kirsten Beyer (also a staff writer on the Star Trek: Discovery show), Scott Tipton, and David Tipton, and Trek fan-favorite artist J. K. Woodward.
The IDW Trek panel will be held Saturday March 24, 2018 at 10:00am in Room 211.
Larry Nemecek Trekland panel
Also on Saturday is Larry ‘Dr. Trek’ Nemecek’s “TrekLand: Discovery Made Me Do It” panel.
Did the recent Star Trek: Discovery series make a Trek fan out of you, where you had not gone before? Or maybe it was the J. J. Abrams “Kelvin Timeline” movies that brought you aboard as a newbie? Larry “Dr. Trek” Nemecek (Portal47.net, The Trek Files, TNG Companion) wants to hear from you—and share your perspectives—in a world where “older” Trek fandom tends to be the only mainstream voice heard.
The Trekland panel will be held Saturday March 24, 2018 at 5:00pm in Room 209.
WonderCon is being held at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, CA from March 23rd to 25th. More info at comic-con.org.
