You didn’t think there’d be this big a con without some Star Trek representation, did you? No way. This year’s ComicCon@Home virtual event will have a trio of Star Trek-related panels going during the week. Each will look at a different aspect of Star Trek, including iterations from the past, present, and of course the future (Hello, Lower Decks).

Here’s a look at what’s coming up July 23-25 with a Star Trek vibe.

Star Trek Universe Panel
Get ready to boldly go into the latest Star Trek series with this panel. Featuring the casts of Star Trek: Discovery, Star Trek: Lower Decks, and Star Trek: Picard, this panel will explore past seasons and look ahead to the future of the shows.

The panel will be moderated by Deadline’s Dominic Patten and will include a live read of a Discovery season two script, an exclusive look at Lower Decks, and a discussion of what the future might hold for the cast of Picard. Check out this panel on Thursday, July 23, at 10 a.m. (PT).

Lower Decks is the newest Star Trek program coming to the screen.

All the Starfleet Ladies
From Uhura to Janeway to Burnham, Star Trek has a rich history of portraying complex, powerful female-identifying characters. How do Star Trek authors perceive their role in continuing this legacy in their Star Trek novels? Join Una McCormack (author of Picard: The Last Best Hope), Swapna Krishna (space, tech, and pop culture journalist), author Cassandra Rose Clarke, LJ Jackson (publicity manager at Saga Press), and moderator Kendra James (managing editor at StarTrek.com), as they examine the ladies of Star Trek from its inception to the present. Check out this panel on Thursday, July 23, at 3 p.m.(PT).

Picard: A Literary Retrospective
With the excitement surrounding the new Star Trek series, let’s take a look back at the most bookish captain in Starfleet. How did he evolve on the page and the screen? What do his favorite books and plays say about him as a character and as a leader?

Take a deep dive into Picard’s bookshelf with Una McCormack (author of Picard: The Last Best Hope), David Mack (author of Star Trek: More Beautiful Than Death), Stephen Graham Jones (author of The Only Good Indians), Alex White (author of The Big Ship at the End of the Universe), and moderator Ed Schlesinger (senior editor at Gallery Books). Check out this panel on Saturday, July 25, at 1 p.m. (PT).
