Want Saturday’s Star Trek announcements? New York Comic Con will make it so, and we’re in the Hulu Theater at Madison Square Garden where announcements are hitting. You can watch the panel live now with the stream embed above from Syfy Wire.
Guests confirmed for the panel include Sonequa Martin-Green from Discovery, Sir Patrick Stewart from Picard along with other various cast and producers from Star Trek shows in development.
Updates from the panel as it happens are below:
The Star Trek Discovery cast has hit the stage first, going through the major change the show is taking by jumping 930 years into the future. Discovery Executive Producer Alex Kurtzman said that despite the time jump for the cast, the show will remain married to the canon of Star Trek.
“The events of canon have absolutely informed the events of the future,” Kurtzman said. “But the future really isn’t what they expected at all when they get to the other side.”
A teaser for the new season shows Martin-Green’s Michael Burnham searching for the “domino that ticked over and started all of this.” New character Cleveland Booker played by David Ajala is seen with Burnham, saying “We believe in ghosts.” Then Saru (Doug Jones) is seen speaking to the crew about how Discovery has taken them all to the future and it will be their “priviledge to make the future bright.” As the teaser closes, Michelle Yeoh’s Philippa Georgiou is briefly seen as well.
A new Star Trek: Short Trek episode was also announced as posting live Saturday, featuring Spock’s first day on the USS Enterprise and the many annoying questions he asks the officer that welcomes him aboard.
