Star Trek is coming back to San Diego Comic-Con in 2024. The announcement came out at the start of July with a press release being sent out to everyone. So far, cast and producers for Strange New Worlds, Lower Decks, and the upcoming Starfleet Academy will all make appearances. That's not all, as the cast from the first Star Trek-made-for-streaming film, Section 31, will also be at the event.

It's not clear if it's just the cast, but the cast of the film will be there. We're also not sure right now if this is one huge event, with the combined cast and crew for each show sharing the stage, or if they're going to take the stage one after another.

As of right now, here are the actors and actresses who will be appearing. From Strange New Worlds Anson Mount, Rebecca Romijn, and Ethan Peck, From Lower Decks we have Jack Quaid, Tawny Newsome, Noël Wells, and Jerry O’Connell. Section 31 will have Omari Hardwick, Sam Richardson, and Kacey Rohl. Michelle Yeoh is not currently scheduled to appear on behalf of her film.

On the producer side, Alex Kurtzman will be there, as will Akiva Goldsman and Henry Alonso for Strange New Worlds, Mike McMahon for Lower Decks, and Noga Landau for Starfleet Academy. Section 31 director Olatunde Osunsanmi will also be in attendance.

The event will be hosted by Justin Simien.

The event will begin on Saturday, July 27, 2024, and the start time is set for 1:45, with a downtime just after three (3:15 PM PT).

With so many major names heading to Comic-Con this summer, we can only hope that the event is better than last year's, which only focused on the new clothing line involving Kid Cudi. His arrival was supposed to be this major event, featuring a new mode in Fortnite, a Star Trek-inspired song and of course the clothing line. Yet, it didn't seem to hit like the folks at Paramount were hoping for.

Hopefully this year, we get more than just a bad brand association and trailers for Lower Decks' final season.
