The cast and creators of CBS All Access’ ‘Star Trek’ series are really racking up the frequent flyer miles. Not only were they on hand for San Diego Comic-Con in July, but they followed that up with Star Trek Las Vegas last month. Now CBS Studios is shipping them off to New York Comic Con next month.
The ‘Star Trek’ panels will be held on Friday, October 5, at the Hulu Theater (now that’s ironic) in Madison Square Garden, from 1-2:30. Joining executive producer Alex Kurtzman will be Sonequa Martin-Green, David Ajala, Wilson Cruz, Doug Jones, Anthony Rapp, and Mary Wiseman to promote the upcoming third season of ‘Star Trek: Discovery’. They will be joined by Sir Patrick Stewart, Isa Briones, Santiago Cabrera, Evan Evagora, Michelle Hurd, Alison Pill, and Harry Treadaway from ‘Star Trek: Picard’ which arrives next year on the streaming service.
On top of that, CBS Studios is hosting the USS Discovery Transporter Experience, an immersive attraction:
CBS All Access invites fans attending New York Comic Con to step aboard the U.S.S. Discovery and travel to strange and distant lands through an immersive transporter experience. The transporter experience will be available starting Thursday, October 3 through Sunday, October 6 in the Crystal Palace of the Javits Center. Comic-Con badges are required for entry. Star Trek pin giveaways throughout the weekend at the activation. Exclusive Star Trek: Discovery and Star Trek: Picard merchandise will also be available for purchase at NY Comic Con.
‘Star Trek’ won’t be the only property CBS will be shilling at NYCC. Here are the other events the studio has planned:
