New York Comic Con has gone virtual for 2020 and the first day kicks this Thursday with a Star Trek Universe event, which will include cast and crew panels for Star Trek: Discovery and Star Trek: Lower Decks. Today CBS released a teaser from the pre-recorded panels that hinted at what is in store.
Watch the teaser
Highlights teased in the teaser
- A sneak peek of Star Trek: Discovery season 3 will be shown.
- Alex Kurtzman will make a “special announcement” about the Star Trek Universe.
- Star Trek: Lower Decks panel will include a surprise “unannounced guest.”
While an official announcement on Star Trek: Discovery getting a fourth season is expected soon, the way it was worded, it appears the “special announcement” will be related to something else besides Discovery and Lower Decks. Listeners to TrekMovie’s All Access Star Trek podcast will already have heard Laurie and Tony predict (based on some social media clues) CBS will use this panel to announce something regarding the upcoming Nickelodeon animated series Star Trek: Prodigy, possibly a teaser trailer and/or release date announcement. However, it could be just about anything.
