During a virtual panel for Star Trek Universe during Comic-Con@Home 2020, we got to learn more from the cast and crew of Star Trek Discovery, Star Trek Picard, and the upcoming Strange New Worlds and Lower Decks. And we even got a new series announcement for Star Trek Prodigy.
The highly anticipated Star Trek: Strange New Worlds is a new series based on the years Captain Christopher Pike led the U.S.S. Enterprise, features fan favorite characters from Star Trek Discovery Season 2 - Captain Christopher Pike, Number One and Science Officer Spock. During the Discovery portion of the panel, the cast told us how their experience on Discovery has impacted their characters as they head into exploring strange new worlds.
Moving on to Star Trek Discovery Season 3, we got a few hints about character development from the cast. We got a first look at the new series Star Trek Lower Decks launching August 6th on CBS All Access. Officially announced during the panel was a new show for kids on Nickelodeon being developed called Star Trek Prodigy.
The panel closed with a Q&A with the main cast and special guest stars from Star Trek Picard Season 1. As we already know, Season 2 is happening - but there is still no set date on when we’ll get it. Sir Patrick Stewart, Brent Spiner, Marina Sirtis and Jonathan Frakes talked about returning to Trek as Picard, Data, Deanna Troi, and Will Riker long after The Next Generation era. Jeri Ryan talked about what it was like to play Seven of Nine again. And Stewart and Spiner talked about getting closure for Data and Picard.
