WonderCon’s Room North 200A will be the place to be on Saturday, March 24 from 3:00pm to 4:00pm, as Star Trek: Discovery will take center stage for The Making of Star Trek: Discovery, a panel in which executive producers and visionaries from the series will beam down to Anaheim to share details about bringing the franchise back to fans and examine how they went about building the Trek universe in the modern age.
Discovery’s L’Rell, Mary Chieffo, will moderate the panel, which will feature: Gretchen J. Berg & Aaron Harberts (Executive Producers & Showrunners); Tamara Deverell (Production Designer); Gersha Phillips (Costume Designer); Mario Moreira (Props Master); Glenn Hetrick & James MacKinnon (Prosthetics & Special FX Makeup); Jeff Russo (Composer); and Jason Zimmerman (VFX Supervisor).
Here’s the official panel description:
Over 50 years ago, the world was first introduced to what would quickly become a cultural phenomenon. It was a television series that inspired developments in science and technology, broke social barriers and transported viewers around the globe to new adventures and uncharted frontiers. Now, Star Trek: Discovery follows in the footsteps of those that came before as it seeks to tackle social issues, inspire the next generation of dreamers and doers and reflect on Gene Roddenberry’s vision of a hope for tomorrow.
WonderCon will take place March 23-25 at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, California. Keep an eye on StarTrek.com for coverage of the panel.
