Today, the universe continues to thrive, exploring all new missions for Starfleet. Join Star Trek Executive Producer Alex Kurtzman for back-to-back panels filled with the latest Star Trek news.
Join the cast and producers from its hit series Star Trek: Discovery, including Sonequa Martin-Green, Doug Jones, Mary Wiseman, Anthony Rapp, Wilson Cruz and David Ajala as they discuss the dramatic season two finale and what adventures lie ahead for the Discovery crew as they jump almost 1000 years into the future in season three.
