These next few posts will be relatively photo dump heavy. The story of our journey to Hall H will be posted later but in the mean time I figured I’d post some about the panels I’m sitting through today!
While in the Trek vs Wars debate I may side with the latter truly is one of the most revolutionary shows and one of the most important in history! This isn’t an opinion or up for argument either. But a historical fact.
Discovery will be airing season 3 in the coming months and taking place 1,000 years in the future!
Next if they’re next of the Star Trek show takes place in 2380 and is animated. It’s called Star Trek Lower Decks. It’s about “unimportant” characters on an “irrelevant” ship. The panel was hosted by Jerry O’Connell from SLIDERS!!
Unlike the previous animated series this will involve a new crew and will be limitless to what can be done on Trek.. Additionally show runner Alex Kurtzmann emphasized the cartoon’s dedication to maintaining the emphasis of diversity and Mike McMahan (Rick & Morty) also addressed how the show will be humorous and still address social issues!
If you love Trek and unique characters (and animation or comedy in general) you should check it out. If you have never seen Trek before it’s a great jump point from the sounds of it. But, for those that are: it’s a shared universe and will have some great inside jokes!
Sir Patrick Stuart was so adorable! He gave praise to not only the cast and writers, but also DeNiro the doggo in the show!
Alloson Pill, Michelle Hurd (who is always amazing) are in the show, and hinted at characters and their brokenness and that those pieces will be a strong part of their stories.
The stories are going to be more serialized and one off like The Next Generation (TNG).
While TNG takes place in a more innocent time (a reflection of “then”) Picard —ever the philosopher—will be reflective on a more difficult time and struggling to present the BEST of himself!
