FRIDAY, JULY 20

“STAR TREK: DISCOVERY” PANEL, 1:30-2:30 PM, HALL H – Over 50 years ago, the world

fall, STAR TREK: DISCOVERY continued that tradition and followed the voyages of
Starfleet aboard the U.S.S. Discovery. Join the cast and producers of this CBS All
Access series to look back on season one and find out where the crew is headed as it
transports into its second season.

Cast members scheduled to appear include Sonequa Martin-Green, Doug Jones, Shazad

alongside executive producers Alex Kurtzman and Heather Kadin. The panel will be
moderated by series guest star Tig Notaro, who will appear as Chief Engineer Reno.

explored humanity’s hopes, despairs, pride and prejudice in metaphoric ways
conventional dramas could not. Please join us for a special marathon screening and a
