The full schedule has now been released for the 50th Anniversary event Star Trek: Mission New York taking place September 2nd – 4th at Javits Centre, New York, which includes a Q&A with Meyer and Beyer.
If you happen to live in or near the city of New York then you have my green faced envy for two reasons. The first being that it’s the city I have wanted to visit more than any other, and the second reason is more importantly because it plays host to Star Trek: Mission New York the first weekend in September.
"Star Trek: Mission New York is the ultimate destination for Star Trek fans, filled with interactive exhibits, exclusive merchandise, celebrity guests, panels, screenings and much more. Fueled by a new movie in July 2016 and an upcoming television series in 2017, this will be the not-to-miss Star Trek event of the year!In collaboration with CBS Consumer Products, Star Trek: Mission New York provides exclusive access to content, personalities, and news about past and upcoming films and television. Star Trek: Mission New York will be an immersive experience featuring props and replicas from the TV shows and films, exclusive screenings, celebrity guests, panels featuring creators and film stars, and exclusive merchandise in the Official Store."

This is potentially exciting news as it means that we might get some further information on the new Star Trek Discovery series that is due to start filming soon. The panel with Meyer and Beyer has been billed as a Q&A as they discuss their history with the franchise and how they got involved with the new series, but one can’t help but think an open Q&A forum will inevitably lead to questions about Discovery.
