Star Trek: Mission Chicago was a success but what’s on deck for 2023?
Star Trek: Mission Chicago is in the books but what’s the plan for 2023? Well by all accounts the next Mission will be to Seattle, where the 2023 Star Trek: Mission event is set to take place. The event will be ran once again by ReedPop, who took over the convention for 2022.
According to TrekMovie.com, ReedPop will take the Star Trek: Mission franchise to Seattle next year, at the Washington State Convention Center. The dates will be May 26, 27, and 28. More of the same that happened in 2022 at Star Trek: Mission Chicago should be expected, with stars of Trek popping up for meet and greets, as well as panels for fans to watch.
And if this years’ event were any indication, new games, shows, and the like may be announced at the event next year. ReedPop promised that the Chicago event was the ultimate destination, and they’re promising that again in 2023 for the Seattle show.
Tickets for the Seattle Mission will go on sale in June, apparently and you’ll be able to see the initial guest list for the event starting then. The plan is to do this every year in a new city, so Star Trek may be coming to your city soon.
Star Trek: Mission Convention may become Trek’s Comic-Con
We’re seeing some titanic shifts as of late. E3, the largest video game conference for decades, has seemingly closed its doors once and for all. This is mostly due to the major consoles no longer using that platform and instead hosting their own events.
The same thing is going to happen to the Comic-Con brand to an extent; while they won’t go out of business, the center focus of the San Diego event being this huge catch-all for “nerd-culture” will no longer be the case.
More and more franchises are likely to host their own events and Star Trek could very well use the Mission franchise as its own version of that.
