Star Trek Panel NYCC 2020

A virtual version of New York Comic Con is kicking off today. How will it stack up against the disastrous Comic-Con at Home earlier this summer, or the comparatively spectacular DC FanDome virtual experience? We’ll find out over the next few days, but let’s get started with an hour-long panel devoted to the Star Trek Universe, including two CBS All Access series, Star Trek: Lower Decks and Star Trek: Discovery, as well as some fascinating news about a returning Starfleet captain in an animated show for Nickelodeon. Set your phasers to “recap,” because we have a lot of ground (or it is space?) to cover. You can watch the full panel, or just get the highlights, below.

A few days back we posted a fun photo of William Shatner arm wrestling Chris Pine. As it turns out, that photo is a still from Shatner’s upcoming documentary The Captains which will premiere on July 21st 2011 on the EPIX HD cable channel.

The Captains – an Epix Original Documentary produced and directed by William Shatner. In The Captains, he travels the world to connect with each of the actors who have played Captains over the long life of the Star Trek franchise. Shatner recalls his own experiences in the role that made him a star by interviewing Patrick Stewart, Kate Mulgrew, Scott Bakula, Avery Brooks and Chris Pine while interweaving clips from their respective shows and movies.

Watch the trailer now embedded after the jump.
