Star Trek Hit The Ground At WonderCon 2024

Star Trek was on the ground this weekend at WonderCon! On Friday, Paramount+ and CBS Studios hosted a Sing-Along for the first time. This included a screening of the “Star Trek: Strange New Worlds” musical episode, “Subspace Rhapsody,” followed by a moderated Q&A with songwriters Tom Polce and Kay Hanley, also of Letters to Cleo fame, where they discussed writing the songs for Star Trek’s first ever musical episode.

Then on Saturday, fans were treated to an advance screening of the premiere episode of the final season of “Star Trek: Discovery.” Immediately following, a moderated Q&A with Michelle Paradise (EP/Co-Showrunner) and Olatunde Osunsanmi (EP/Director) took place in front of the crowded room where they discussed working on the exciting final season and teasing what’s to come in the upcoming episodes. One of the newest cast members of “Star Trek: Discovery” season 5, Elias Toufexis (L’ak), surprised fans by appearing in the audience at the screening.

Overall, the two-night spectacle was a great way to celebrate Star Trek with such loving fans of these two shows and of the entire franchise.
