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.
