The next big pop culture event is New York Comic Con which runs from October 12-15 in NYC at the Javits Center. Paramount+ has just announced their plans for the event covering a number of their shows including the Star Trek Universe.
Star Trek Universe Presentation at New York Comic Con
The new announcement from Paramount includes a “Star Trek Universe Presentation” to be held on Saturday, October 14, at 1:45 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. ET on the Empire Stage. Here is the official description:
The fan-favorite STAR TREK universe returns to New York Comic Con, featuring a special advance screening of an all new episode from the current season of the hit Paramount+ original animated comedy series STAR TREK: LOWER DECKS, plus more exciting reveals and surprises for STAR TREK fans in attendance!
Notably, the announcement does not include the names of any Star Trek celebrities for the panel due to the ongoing writers’ and actors’ strikes. The WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes also impacted the Star Trek Universe panel at San Diego Comic-Con in July so Paramount+ decided to use their time in Hall H to debut the Strange New Worlds/Lower Decks crossover episode. Based on the date of the NYCC panel, it’s likely they will be showing episode 8 of Lower Decks which is set to stream the next Thursday. However, unlike at San Diego Comic-Con, it looks like even without any celebrities, Paramount will still try to make some news with the mention of “exciting reveals and surprises.” A good guess is this would include a new trailer for the fifth and final season of Discovery, possibly announcing a specific release date beyond just “early 2024.”
For 2023 Paramount+ is returning to the NYCC convention floor with an interactive booth space (Booth #1723), which will include exclusive photo opportunities and more. Paramount+ is also promoting the original series Evil and the upcoming movie Good Burger 2 at NYCC 2023.
TrekMovie will be at NYCC 2023 to cover all the news and happenings of interest to Star Trek fans, so stay tuned.
