CBS All Access and Startrek.com confirm that Star Trek Universe will have a free to view virtual panel at New York Comic Con 2020
Due to the ongoing nature of the Covid19 pandemic all major comic cons have been cancelled and moved to online events made possible via live streaming. It was hopeful that as the world began to get a grip on the virus, we would see a normality return and venues and events begin to open their doors once again. Though this is true in parts of the world, unfortunately the USA are still struggling, and New Comic Con is one of many events that cannot welcome visitors this year.
This afternoon CBS All Access and CBS Television Studios announced the line up they will be putting together for the live event at New York Comic Cons Metaverse event from 8th to 11th October.
More details on the Metaverse, which is a free to view event, can be found by visiting https://www.findthemetaverse.com. The details for the Star Trek Universe panel is below:
CBS All Access, ViacomCBS’ digital subscription video on-demand and live streaming service, and CBS Television Studios invite fans to enter the Star Trek universe during New York Comic Con’s Metaverse, taking place virtually Oct. 8-11 at YouTube.com/NYCC and FindtheMetaverse.com.
Panels will include a back-to-back block of Star Trek programming to kick off opening day of New York Comic Con’s Metaverse on Thursday, Oct. 8, featuring cast and producers from Star Trek: Lower Decks, Star Trek: Discovery, and surprise guests.
Thursday, Oct. 8 at 12:00 PM, ET/9:00 AM, PT (5pm UK GMT)
