Star Trek: Discovery, Lower Decks, The Stand NYCC Metaverse-Bound

At this year's New York Comic Con x MCM Comic Con Metaverse, CBS All Access/Paramount+ will be bringing two distinctly different visions of humanity's future to the fans attending the virtual convention- and both make us a little nervous. The streaming service will be beaming the teams behind Star Trek: Discovery and Star Trek: Lower Decks down for the event, with the crew behind the upcoming limited series adaptation of Stephen King's The Stand joining them.
