One could argue that Star Trek has never been more on fire than it has right now. Even during its prime with Next Generation and DS9 and so on, it never had more shows out than it has right now, and they just keep coming in the best way possible. So it shouldn’t be surprising that the franchise is going and bringing two highly-anticipated shows to New York Comic-Con to show off. In this case, it’ll be a panel talking about the upcoming fourth season of Discovery, and another being a screening of the debut of Prodigy.
Here’s the synopsis for the Discovery panel:
“In advance of the season four 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 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.”
And for the Prodigy panel/screening:
“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.”
For those who aren’t going to be there, Prodigy will air on Paramount+ on October 28th, while Discovery will debut in November, so it won’t be too long of a wait per se.
Given how New York Comic-COn was canceled last year, there’s no doubt that the team behind these shows wants to remind fans of their presence and hopefully bring in new viewers to help make this expansion very much worth it. You know, to boldly go where…
