STAR TREK: DISCOVERY Details May Be Revealed At Mission New York

The official schedule of events has been revealed for Star Trek Mission: New York and one of the major announcements is a panel involving Kirsten Beyer and Nicholas Meyer, from the upcoming TV series Star Trek: Discovery.

Beyer and Meyer have both been involved with the development of Discovery, so it should be interesting to hear what information the duo share regarding the new series.

The panel takes place on Saturday (Sept. 3) on the main stage at 3:30 PM and will be moderated by Jordan Hoffman, the host of Engage: The Official Star Trek Podcast.

Discovery creator, Bryan Fuller, announced that the show will take place ten years before The Original Series, will have a female lead and lots of other details, during a Television Critics Association press event, last week.

Star Trek Mission: New York will celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Star Trek franchise and takes place September 2-4 at the Javits Center in Manhattan. The guest list includes William Shatner, Walter Koenig, Jonathan Frakes, Marina Sirtis, LeVar Burton, Michael Dorn, Gates McFadden, Bruce Greenwood, Peter Weller, Brannon Braga, Nana Visitor, Rene Auberjonois, Terry Farrell, Armin Shimerman, Cirroc Lofton, Anthony Montgomery, Connor Trinneer, John Billingsley, Dominic Keating, Robin Curtis, Brannon Braga, Rod Roddenberry and more.

The first episode of Star Trek: Discovery will premiere with a broadcast TV special on CBS. That episode and all subsequent episodes will be exclusively shown in the US on the video streaming service CBS All Access.

Alex Kurtzman, Bryan Fuller and Rod Roddenberry have been announced as executive producers, with Nicholas Meyer (director of The Wrath of Khan and The Undiscovered Country and co-writer of The Voyage Home) is serving as a writer and consulting producer.

    I’m not interested in before TNG/VOY/DS9 we need AFTER – this is destined to fail… 🙁

      Totally agree, at least we’re leaving the JJ-verse behind! ‘Cause that’s the first time I’ve really turned off the Star Trek franchise.

      Who is ‘we’? Speak for yourself, please. I’m fine with a pre-TOS show.
