Glad we’ll be getting more info about these. I’m especially looking forward to the unreleased to Starfleet Academy and Section 31, just so we can get a better idea of what to expect from those. But both Lower Decks and Strange New Worlds should be fun panels as well.

I mean, they could probably show a first trailer or a scene from Section 31 if they want to.

I’m hoping that’s one of the surprises they have in store.

Same here. For some reason I was thinking it might be too early to have one, but that’s only true for Starfleet Academy. I’d forgotten that it already filmed.

Hoping against hope that they’ll announce they’re reversing Lower Decks’ cancelation.

Why would they do that?

Like I said…hoping against hope

Don’t get your hopes up.

It would be nice at the very least they continued it in movies or specials. I don’t think this is truly the end of the show and McMahan has said it may not be completely over.

It may just be wish fulfilment on his part as well but as we have been seeing the last few years now, none of these characters ever completely goes away either.

I think you’re right, Tiger2. I have a good feeling that we’ll get more Lower Decks eventually. Likely to a limited degree, but hey, so long as they get to do the spoof poster for my favorite Star Trek movie, I’ll take it…

I still think there is a huge possibility of getting LD characters back as at least cameos in live action. I bet they can’t resist lol

Great news. Just happy they are still even doing it given everything.

I suspect we will get LDS season 5 trailer (haven’t most of the trailers been launched there?) and maybe even a S 31 trailer. If not maybe a peak of a scene or something. Hopefully they will announce the date for it and it will be this year, but not holding my breath either.
