Read on – and check out the pictures -- as StarTrek.com previews some of what attendees can expect to see at New York Comic-Con. StarTrek.com will be handing out Trek-centric collectible wristbands, and several familiar Trek names will be in attendance as well.

Abrams (Booth #1144): The publisher will be showing its recent release, Star Trek Vault, which you can read more about here.
Diamond (Booth #338): Picard and the Borg will be in the house… and on display. That’s to say that Diamond will be giving everyone a look at their new Star Trek: The Next Generation/Picard and the Borg action figures.
Earloomz (Booth #137): The company will be selling their Star Trek GL 158 “Live Long & Prosper” Bluetooth. Additionally, they’ll be taking pre-orders on their new Star Trek-design GL 124 “Command Shield.”
Hallmark (Booth #110): The folks at Hallmark will display their 2011 Star Trek ornaments and greeting cards, as well as offer a sneak peek at their 2012 ornaments. And, if you move at warp speed, maybe you can get your hands on one of the 700 glow-in-the-dark U.S.S. Defiants – yes, the ill-fated ship from “The Tholian Web” -- they’ll be selling as a Star Trek/New York Comic-Con Exclusive.
Simon and Schuster (Booth #2612): Simon and Schuster is beaming into New York Comic-Con with three new/upcoming Starfleet Academy titles on display at their booth. The three titles are "The Edge," "The Delta Anomaly" and "The Gemini Agent."
Titan Entertainment (Booth #940): The company will be showing off its Original Series and Next Generation busts.
As noted, a handful of familiar Star Trek figures will be on hand as well. Longtime writer/executive producer Brannon Braga will be among those representing his new show, Terra Nova. And among the Trek authors and/or comic book writers scheduled to appear are Peter David, James Swallow, Christopher Bennett and David Mack.
