The East Coast’s Biggest Comic-Con Has Plenty to Offer Space Fans

It ain’t San Diego, but the Big Apple undoubtedly has its share of proud nerds. San Diego’s reigned supreme in the Comic-Con world for years and years, but New York’s Comic-Con is quickly catching up. In fact, it’s the second biggest convention of all things geek and pop-culture in the country. And it starts this week.

Here Are the Five Panels Space Fans Won’t Want To Miss:

If you’re actually going to NYC Comic-Con, then you probably already have every moment of your weekend planned out. Just like that scene in The Guild when Zaboo goes nuts at the Megagame-O-Rama-Con.

But if you’re like the rest of us who’ll just look for panel videos on YouTube later, here are some that you won’t want to miss…

1. “Star Talk: Live” (Thursday)

Neil deGrasse Tyson, America’s favorite astrophysicist, will be doing a live version of his famous guest-based show. Star Talk covers all things space-related. The panel will be at the Main Stage 1D, Javits Center on Thursday from 7:30 p.m.-8:30 p.m. 

2. “From 1969 to the Future: Stories in Space” (Friday)

This panel discussion, featuring sci-fi glitterarti such as David Mack, Kass Morgan, Molly Brooks, and Peter F. Hamilton, along with moderator Maryelizabeth Yturralde, will focus on human space travel, past and future. The panel’s description also mentions “exciting destinations in the universe.” The panel will take place in Room 1A18, Javits Center at 1:30 p.m.-2:30 p.m Friday.

3. “Star Trek Universe” (Saturday)

Of course the Star Trek panels are going to big draws. They always draw huge attention. This year, fans will get a double shot of Trek. The cast of Star Trek: Picard will appear immediately following the panel from Star Trek: Discovery. The “Discovery” panel will feature Sonequa Martin-Green and Anthony Rapp among other fan favorites. Then Picard himself will appear. Sir Patrick Stewart joins his “Picard” co-stars Evan Evagora, Isa Briones, Alison Pill, and others. This awesomeness is scheduled to happen at the Hulu Theater at Madison Square Garden from 1:00 to 2:30 on Saturday.

4. “For All Mankind” (Saturday)

As we reported earlier, this show looks intriguing at worst, and awesome at best. It will be interesting to see what the panel has to offer in the way of hints and previews and such. Panel members will include Michael Dorman, Jodi Balfour, Sarah Jones, Wrenn Schmidt, and Shantel VanSanten. The panel will happen at the Hammerstein Ballroom (311 W. 34th St.) from 3 p.m.-4 p.m. on Saturday.

5. “The Orville”

Fans of the Seth McFarlane, Star Trek-inspired space comedy The Orville will be very excited to learn that the panel for this show is on Sunday, rather than Saturday like all of the other best shows. Nearly the whole cast will be in attendance, and there will probably be a lot of fans there. The panel is scheduled for the Main Stage 1D, Javits Center from 3:15 p.m.-4:15 p.m. on Sunday.

Lots More Not Listed

Of course, there will be a ton of panels at New York Comic-Con that many of you will want to check out, so be sure to keep an eye out on the internets for videos of your favorite panels. Here’s the full schedule, in case you’re interested.
