Finally we will hear what is coming next! I bet we will see new trailers and videos. Also, learn when the new shows will launch. July 23rd will be a glorious day!

Star Trek: Lower Decks is on my binge watch list!

Wish we can see all the episodes right away, like some shows in Amazon and Netflix. Sometimes I want to wait until the last 3 episodes. But I always subscribe right away.

I’m glad we don’t. I just don’t have the self control to deal with that. If we got them all at once, I would just binge them all as soon as they came out, and then I would have no new Star Trek to watch for a while. This way, I’m forced to pace myself over a couple of months.

Maybe we might get a release date for Star Trek: Discovery season 3 at this event. See trailers and new announcements awaits. Can’t wait to find out more Star Trek news on July 23rd. A Star Trek: Lower Decks trailer would be a treat.

woop woop that’s pretty much everyone… this would have been awesome in real world in person times… damn virus… but it’s pretty cool.

Excited to hear what’s announced on July 23rd. Btw a big shout out to SDCC organizers for making the effort to hold this year’s event virtually instead of just postponing it until next year. This gives the tv and movie producers a chance to still make announcements and communicate with the fans in a big event setting – even if it is just a virtual conference.

Do we really need a table read of the Discovery season 2 finale? Part of me is trying to forget most of it. ;)

Other than that, yeah pretty good news. We’ll probably get real footage and maybe even a trailer for LD which is crazy considering the show will launch just two weeks after that. But it will at least give some hype to the show for people who isn’t paying attention. I also think we’ll get another Discovery footage or trailer too. Maybe even more news about SNW, but not expecting a lot.

Overall though it should be a good day. Nothing like last July when the first Picard trailer was released and all the craziness after ward, but still a good day for some news at least.

Sincerely Tiger2, try watching the 2-part season finale of Picard on its own.

It really works much better that way.

SH Trek still has a way to go to really get how to do the serial season thing.

I’m also hoping to hear news from the Section 31 and Nickelodeon shows. Maybe we’ll get a title for the latter at least. I don’t think there’s much to say about Section 31 show, since nothing has been shot, yet. At this point I am wonder whether it is even going to happen.
