It’s time for Star Trek At NYCC 2023! In a world where pop culture events are the pulse of the entertainment industry, ReedPop’s New York Comic Con (NYCC) holds a special place. Scheduled to take place from 12th to 15th October at NYC’s Javits Centre, we’re excitedly anticipating Paramount’s Star Trek Universe presentation.
Paramount+ has revealed an exciting schedule for the NYCC, including the Star Trek Universe Presentation. Planned for Saturday, 14 October, from 1:45 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. ET on the Empire Stage, the official description is tantalising:
"The fan-favourite STAR TREK universe returns to New York Comic Con, featuring a special advance screening of an all-new episode from the current season of the hit Paramount+ original animated comedy series STAR TREK: LOWER DECKS, plus more exciting reveals and surprises for STAR TREK fans in attendance!"
What To Expect From Star Trek At NYCC 2023
The event’s details are shrouded in mystery. In July, the writers and actors’ strikes impacted the Star Trek Universe panel at San Diego Comic-Con. Consequently, Paramount+ decided to debut the Strange New Worlds/Lower Decks crossover episode. With the Writers Strike now essentially concluded, we could hear some surprise reveals about future Star Trek projects. It’s important to note that the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Strike is still ongoing as of writing.
Based on the NYCC panel’s date, we’re speculating that they’ll probably screen episode 8 of Star Trek: Lower Decks, set to stream the following Thursday. However, unlike at San Diego Comic-Con, even in the absence of celebrities, Paramount is stirring the pot with mentions of “exciting reveals and surprises.”
One possibility is a new trailer for Star Trek: Discovery’s fifth and final season, perhaps even revealing a specific release date other than “early 2024.” Then again, without the actors to hype up the show’s last outing, who knows what they will do?
Paramount+ is returning to the NYCC convention floor with an interactive booth space, Booth #1723, promising exclusive photo opportunities and more. A convention-exclusive Funk Pop for NYCC 2023 will be available. This is Geordi La Forge from Star Trek: The Next Generation. Note this is the Season One appearance of La Forge, as identified by the red uniform.
