Sonequa Martin-Green, Jason Isaacs, Doug Jones, Shazad Latif, Mary Wiseman, Anthony Rapp, and James Frain will join a panel with Executive Producers Alex Kurtzman, Gretchen J. Berg, Aaron Harberts, Heather Kadin, and Akiva Goldsman. Guest star Rainn Wilson, who plays intergalactic conman Harry Mudd on the new series, will moderate.

And that's just the beginning.

Star Trek: Discovery will also host a gallery takeover at the Michael J. Wolf Fine Arts Gallery (363 Fifth Avenue, San Diego), where fans can interact with the captain's chair from the U.S.S. Discovery along with props and costumes taken directly from set. Each day, 1,000 fans will also be eligible to receive a limited-edition Star Trek: Discovery poster (see examples above).

The exhibit runs Thursday, July 20 through Sunday, July 23, and does not require a badge for entry.

In addition, from Thursday, July 20 through Sunday, July 23, CBS will offer free rides throughout San Diego's Gaslamp District in pedicabs designed to resemble the U.S.S. Discovery's captain’s chair.
