First teased last month, details are here from CBS on their planned panel for October’s virtual New York Comic Con. The Star Trek Universe panel will focus on Lower Decks and Discovery will be held on October 8th, which happens to be the same day the first season of Lower Decks wraps and a week before season three of Discovery begins.
Star Trek Universe meets the Metaverse
Star Trek will be kicking off New York Comic Con’s Metaverse virtual event, which runs from October 8-11. The Star Trek Universe panel begins on Thursday, October 8 at 12:00 PM ET / 9:00 AM PT, and will have two back-to-back discussions. Here is how CBS describes the two-part panel:
Join the creator of Star Trek: Lower Decks, Mike McMahan, and series voice cast for a special edition of CBS All Access’ official Star Trek after-show, The Ready Room, as they dive into the season one finale with host Wil Wheaton. Voice cast appearing include Tawny Newsome, Jack Quaid, Noël Wells, Eugene Cordero, Dawnn Lewis, Jerry O’Connell, Fred Tatasciore and Gillian Vigman.
Be the first to learn the latest about Star Trek: Discovery before season three premieres on Thursday, Oct. 15, exclusively on CBS All Access. Join series stars Sonequa Martin-Green, Doug Jones, Anthony Rapp, Mary Wiseman and Wilson Cruz; new cast members David Ajala, Blu del Barrio and Ian Alexander; and series co-showrunners and executive producers Alex Kurtzman and Michelle Paradise, for an exclusive conversation on what’s in store for the U.S.S. Discovery crew. Moderated by Sarah Rodman of Entertainment Weekly.
The CBS announcement also says “a few special surprise guests” will be part of the Metaverse Star Trek Universe panel.
On Friday, October 9th at 12:40 PM ET / 9:40 Am PT CBS All Access will also be running a panel for their upcoming mini-series The Stand, based on Stephen King’s iconic novel. That panel will have the stars on the show including Star Trek: The Next Generation vet Whoopi Goldberg, who is reportedly also part of Star Trek: Picard season 2.
