STLV 2017 Discovery.
With Star Trek: Discovery’s big presentation at San Diego Comic-Con, fans were left wondering what presence—if any—the series would have at Creation Entertainment’s Star Trek Las Vegas convention. The answer came on the first day of the con with four hours of Discovery panels.
In this episode of The Edge, recorded at STLV, hosts Mike Schindler and Amy Nelson are joined by Bruce Gibson of Literary Treks and Justin Oser of Earl Grey for an in-depth discussion on all four Discovery panels. We break down everything presented by the writers, actors, designers, and tie-in collaborators to give you the full scoop on what to expect from Discovery in the coming weeks.
