Comic-Con at Home starts this week. It’s still difficult wrapping our heads around the fact that we will not be on the ground in San Diego for SDCC 2020. However, we are incredibly grateful that Comic-Con International found a way to present the beloved pop culture event in our own homes. 

CBS All Access is coming back this year with Star Trek Universe. The virtual event is free for all to attend and you can sign up, here. They will be presenting three panels: Star Trek: Discovery, Star Trek: Lower Decks and Star Trek: Picard

The streaming service released a sneak peek of the virtual panels which begin this Thursday, July 23rd at 10am Pacific Time. Each panel is different and one is not quite what you would expect from an SDCC panel. That one being the Discovery panel which will be presenting a virtual table read of the season two finale,”Such Sweet Sorrow, Part 2″ followed by a Q&A. Then the Lower Decks crew will be chatting and featuring an exclusive first look at the premiere episode. Finally, Picard! This panel has the cast coming together to discuss the first season.
