Star Trek TNG Legend Patrick Stewart To Appear At Comic-Con's Picard Panel
Make it so!
CBS All Access is pushing forward with more Star Trek content. Star Trek: Discovery is getting a third season, the animated series Lower Decks was announced, and Star Trek: Picard is in production. It has been revealed that all of these shows will be featured at San Diego Comic-Con this year, just a couple weeks away.
CBS has confirmed an event titled "Enter the Star Trek Universe" is taking place on Saturday July 20 in Hall H, at 11.30am PST. It will kick off with a Discovery panel, moderated by comedian Tig Notaro, who also co-starred as Reno in the most recent season of the show. Guests will include star Sonequa Martin-Green and executive producer Alex Kirkman.
The event will also give fans the first look at Star Trek: Lower Decks. This animated series has been developed by Rick & Morty writer Mike McMahan, who will appear at the panel alongside "surprise guests."
But the most exciting appearance for most fans will be at the event's third panel, at which Patrick Stewart will speak about Star Trek: Picard. The series is set to premiere in the fall and sees Stewart reprise his iconic Next Generation role as Jean-Luc Picard. The Picard panel will also feature showrunner Michael Chabon and co-stars Alison Pill, Michelle Hurd, Evan Evagora, Isa Briones, Santiago Cabrera, and Harry Treadaway.
In addition to the Hall H event, throughout the convention, fans will be able to visit the Star Trek Universe booth. There will be a meet-and-greet sessions to meet Star Trek talent on Saturday July 20, plus an "immersive transporter experience" during the whole weekend. There will also be limited edition Star Trek pins available from the booth.
