New York Comic Con proved especially prosperous for Star Trek fans, as the first teaser trailer for Stark Trek: Discovery season three and a brand new look atStar Trek: Picard were unveiled during Saturday's panel.
Discovery stars Sonequa Martin-Green, Doug Jones, Anthony Rapp, Mary Wiseman, Wilson Cruz and David Ajala were on hand to debut the first look at season three, which will see Commander Michael Burnham and the crew of the U.S.S. Discovery jump 930 years into the future.
"This ship bears the name Discovery. She has carried us into the future," Acting Captain Commander Saru (Jones) says in the clip. "And it will be our privilege to make that future bright."
Watch the teaser trailer below:
During the panel, the Discovery cast also engaged in a Q&A session and teased what to expect in season three. "Time changes everything. We're going a thousand years in the future," executive producer Alex Kurtzman explained. "Trek is the ultimate beacon of hope...We're looking to have something to say about the world that it is now reflected in the future that we present."

Sir Patrick Stewart, along with Picard castmates Isa Briones, Santiago Cabrera, Michelle Hurd, Alison Pill, Harry Treadaway and Evan Evagora, then took the stage to premiere a new trailer for their series, which sees Stewart reprise his iconic role as Jean-Luc Picard in the one-time Starfleet captain's next chapter of his life.
"I came here to find safety," Picard says in the footage. "But one is never safe from the past." When a desperate young woman, Dahj (Briones), arrives at his vineyard, Picard is called upon to assemble a new crew and set out on another top secret, unauthorized, rescue mission. Alongside the series' many new faces, the trailer teases the return of Star Trek favorites like Jonathan Frakes' William Riker and Jeri Ryan's Seven of Nine.
Discovery won't start streaming until 2020, but Kurtzman has a little something to hold Trekkies over until then, surprise dropping the first episode of Star Trek: Short Treks. Now available on CBS All Access, "Q&A" follows Ethan Peck's Ensign Spock and Rebecca Romijn's Number One during the former's first day aboard the U.S.S. Enterprise.
Star Trek: Discovery returns in 2020 and Star Trek: Picard premieres Jan. 23, 2020 on CBS All Access. Star Trek: Short Treks is now streaming, with a new episode dropping the second Thursday of each month starting Oct. 10.
