NYCC Metaverse – Day 1 Show Highlights

New York Comic Con x MCM Comic Con’s Metaverse kicked off today with an incredible panel lineup, tons of geeky merch, and hundreds of cosplayers sharing their looks across social media. Just in case you missed any of the action, I wanted to share some highlights from today’s must-see programming:

  • Kicking off the show, the Star Trek Universe panel gave fans a first look at the ‘Star Trek: Discovery’ S3 opener and revealed that ‘Star TrekVoyager’ actress Kate Mulgrew will reprise her iconic role as Captain Janeway on Nickelodeon’s ‘Star TrekProdigy’https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MLVO17dQOS8
