After New York Comic Con’s in-person event was cancelled in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Star Trek is coming back to the fan convention this year with two separate panels for Star Trek: Discovery and Star Trek: Prodigy.
Set to take place on Saturday, October 8th, the NYCC panel for Star Trek: Discovery will be attended by the show’s cast and creatives to talk about the upcoming season 4 of the sci-fi series. And since Star Trek: Discovery notably didn’t release a trailer for the new batch of episodes during Paramount+’s Star Trek Day live presentation last September 8th, fans are expecting to see one during the show’s NYCC panel. Check out the panel’s official description below:
“In advance of the season 4 return of Star Trek: Discovery on Paramount+, join cast and executive producers of the hit series as they tease the upcoming season which finds Captain Burnham (Sonequa Martin-Green) and the crew of the U.S.S. Discovery facing a threat unlike any they’ve ever encountered. With Federation and non-Federation worlds alike feeling the impact, they must confront the unknown and work together to ensure a hopeful future for all.”
The Star Trek: Prodigy’s NYCC panel, meanwhile, will be held on Sunday, October 9th. Before the moderated panel discussion with the cast and producers, the show will host a special screening of its premiere episode for the attendees. Below is the panel’s official description:
“Join Paramount+, CBS Studios and Nickelodeon for a premiere screening for the whole family of the highly anticipated upcoming Star Trek animated kids’ series, Star Trek: Prodigy. Following the screening, cast and producers will take the stage for a moderated panel discussion.”
Though this year’s NYCC will be back as an in-person event, tickets remain limited to comply with health and safety protocols. For those who can’t personally make it to the convention as well as those who are still concerned about COVID-19, NYCC is offering digital tickets for $20 to anyone who wants to stream panels from home. These panels will also be on-demand for 30 days after the convention closes.
Star Trek: Discovery season 4 will premiere on Thursday, November 18th on Paramount+, while Star Trek: Prodigy will make its series debut on Thursday, October 28th.
