The Star Trek: Discovery cast is making the trip down from Toronto to New York City next weekend, where the stars and creative team will make appearances at both New York Comic Con and the annual PaleyFest series in the Big Apple.

On Saturday, October 7, the Discovery team takes the stage at The Theater at Madison Square Garden for a panel on the new series at this special off-site location. While specific participants have not yet been announced, we expect the roster to be nearly identical to the PaleyFest event (below).

This fall on CBS All Access, Star Trek: Discovery follows the voyages of Starfleet on their missions to discover new worlds and new life forms, while learning that to truly understand all things alien, you must first understand yourself.

The iconic television franchise, which first launched over 50 years ago, continues to remain true to its roots, and Starfleet’s steadfast ideals of adventure, an earnest pursuit for exploration, and the hope that we can all come together for a better tomorrow.

Join cast members Sonequa Martin-Green, Jason Isaacs, Doug Jones, Shazad Latif, Mary Wiseman, Anthony Rapp, Mary Chieffo, and Wilson Cruz alongside executive producers Alex Kurtzman, Gretchen J. Berg, Aaron Harberts, Heather Kadin and Akiva Goldsman.

The panel will be moderated by former NASA Astronaut Dr. Mae Jemison, a major fan of Star Trek, the world’s first woman of color in space and leader of the 100 Year Starship initiative fostering the capabilities for human interstellar travel.

TrekCore will be in attendance at this event, so watch for updates from the panel on our Twitter feed Saturday afternoon.

Discovery actor Jason Isaacs (Captain Lorca) will also be appearing at NYCC throughout the event for autograph signings and other panels, as well as William Shatner, Kelvin Timeline Trek actor John Cho, and Trek writer/producer Ronald D. Moore.

Saturday night, the Discovery will also be making an appearance at the annual PaleyFest series, with the principal cast and executive production team in attendance in a smaller, ticketed setting.

Named for William S. Paley, founder of CBS and The Paley Center for Media, PaleyFest is a must-see pop cultural event produced by the Paley Center that brings fans together with the stars and creators of their favorite shows for panel discussions with audience Q&A. PaleyFest takes place both in LA & NY.

Joining the conversation will be cast members Sonequa Martin-Green, Jason Isaacs, Shazad Latif, Doug Jones, Mary Wiseman, Anthony Rapp, Mary Chieffo, and Wilson Cruz, along with production leadership team Alex Kurtzman, Gretchen J. Berg, Aaron Harberts, Akiva Goldsman, and Heather Kadin.

TrekCore will also be attending this event and will bring you any news that breaks next weekend.

Finally, on Sunday evening, Discovery showrunner Aaron Harberts and cast member Mari Wiseman — making her on-screen Trek debut in this Sunday’s episode — will join host Matt Mira on the live After Trek discussion show, also filmed in New York City.

After Trek streams live on CBS All Access at 9:30 PM after Star Trek: Discovery.

    Here is a good example of an article from a Trek fan in the press who is less than impressed by STD. Read the comments too. I am not alone.

      Great! Reaction to art (and by extension, TV) is subjective. Everyone is entitled to their opinions about art. It makes that viewpoint neither right nor wrong nor does it increase your standing if people share it. It is still YOUR opinion.

      So what’s your point? That people don’t like Discovery? That leads me back to: Great!

      Let ‘em.

      • Paul Walker

        I love the Klingon high council so much right now.

        • Your Worst Nightmare

          I assume you aren’t speaking of a fictional group of aliens who run an entire empire.

          So, what the hell ARE you referencing?

          • Paul Walker

            I don’t know about you but I have a lot of respect for the Tal Shiar.

          • Your Worst Nightmare

            So, you have no point? Got it. Thanks for the input!

          • Paul Walker

            The Obsidian Order was the primary intelligence agency of the Cardassian Union. I like when they team up with the Tal Shiar to stop the Dominion.

          • I’m beginning to wonder if there is some type of random sentence generator behind the Paul Walker account. How can we test it? 🙂

          • Your Worst Nightmare

            You may have just done so!

          • Paul Walker

            You weirdo! Of course there ain’t no random sentence generator behind my account. You just jealous of my word play.

          • Your Worst Nightmare

            You have word play?

          • Paul Walker

            I got rhymes to match the times while I eat some Star Trek limes – how do you like that one?

          • Your Worst Nightmare

            Don’t quit your day job.

          • Paul Walker

            I don’t have a day job, I was born with an abundant trust fund.

          • Your Worst Nightmare

            Sigh. Not another one.

            Do you belong to a secret TrekBBS group of True Fans who think they can make sweeping declarations on what the rest of us think about and do in regards to Star Trek?

          • Paul Walker

            Well, I am related to several former and current people in high places at Paramount, so yeah.

          • Your Worst Nightmare

            Lol… okay.

          • Paul Walker

            Laugh now, but cry later when I am able to convince some people I know to change the look of the new Klingons.

          • Your Worst Nightmare

            I could care less about the looks of the Klingons. There are issues I have with this series and while the Klingon look isn’t a choice I would have made, it doesn’t bother me. So, try again.

          • Paul Walker

            What is Your Worst Nightmare about Star Trek STD?

          • Your Worst Nightmare

            First, I worry it’ll be boring. It’s not been the most exciting thus far. But it did leave me intrigued for where it might go.

            Second, you are not nearly as clever as you think you are.

          • Paul Walker

      STOP SPAMMING. This has NOTHING to do with this articke.

      I am reporting this trolling to the mods.

      • Paul Walker

        Fuck you nerd and your mom.

      • DC Forever

        Trekcore, please also review Paul Walker’s just deleted post where he personally threatened me and brought up my mother. Thanks
