Saturday, July 22:

Star Trek: Discovery. “Over fifty years ago, the world was first introduced to what would quickly become a cultural phenomenon. It was a television series that inspired developments in science and technology, broke social barriers, and transported viewers around the globe to new adventures and uncharted frontiers. This fall, Star Trek: Discovery follows the voyages of Starfleet on their missions to discover new worlds and new life forms while learning that to truly understand all things alien, you must first understand yourself. The series will feature a new ship and new characters while embracing the same ideology and hope for the future that inspired a generation of dreamers and doers. Join members of the cast alongside the creative minds behind the new series for a conversation and introduction to Star Trek: Discovery. The newest edition of the Star Trek franchise will premiere in the U.S. on CBS All Access this fall, following a broadcast premiere on the CBS Television Network. Ballroom 20, 2:30 PM-3:15 PM.

The Orville. “From Emmy Award–winning executive producer and creator Seth MacFarlane with a pilot directed by Jon Favreau, The Orville is a one-hour science fiction comedic drama set four hundred years in the future that follows the adventures of the U.S.S. Orville, a mid-level exploratory vessel. Come meet the whole crew—Seth MacFarlane, Adrianne Palicki, Scott Grimes, Penny Johnson Jerald, Peter Macon, Halston Sage, J. Lee, Mark Jackson, and Chad Coleman as well as producers David Goodman and Brannon Braga —and get an exclusive extended first look at FOX‘s new fall show. The crew, both human and alien, will face the wonders and dangers of outer space, while also dealing with the familiar, often humorous problems of regular people in a workplace…even though some of those people are from other planets, and the workplace is a faster-than-light spaceship.” Room 6A, 4:15 PM-5:15 PM.

Sunday, July 23:

Starship Smackdown: The Revenge. “The must-see panel of Comic-Con and WonderCon Anaheim, as profiled on NPR’s All Things Considered, returns, but this time it’s personal. Who will duke it out for the highly coveted Smackdown title this year? Can the Starship Enterprise defeat an Imperial Star Destroyer? Will Rogue One be assimilated by a Borg cube? Will the Nostromo be taken over by Rathars? And will the Jefferson Starship ever win anything (not to mention, did they actually build Caprica on rock and roll)?
