With just over a week to go until CBS holds their “Enter The Star Trek Universe” panel at SDCC, we have decided to run down what to expect at this landmark event, due to the fact there is so much going on this year we will be splitting it into parts to make sure we cram in as much info as possible without making it an epically long read.
“Enter The Star Trek Universe” Panel – (Hall H)
The 90-minute panel will be held in Hall H on Saturday 20th from 11:30 am to 1:00 pm and will feature key members from not just one but three of the shows.
Star Trek: Discovery, Star Trek: Lower Decks and what promises to be the most exciting out of all three, for the first time since STLV2018 Sir Patrick Stewart will be back on stage along with the new cast to talk about all things, Star Trek: Picard:
But that is not it, all over SDCC, you will be able to find various Star Trek themed booths and official Star Trek, licensees.

Hero Within is honored to add Star Trek to our family of licenses and we are committed to bring a high standard of style and sophistication to fans. It will take us a while to introduce a new collection but we wanted to commemorate this new partnership with a limited San Diego Comic-Con Exclusive Gold Foil Logo Shirt. Like I said, adding a license for a company is rare so this shirt will only come once so make sure to come by our booth (2047) early to pick one up. Also, fan feedback is very important to us.
