Will Star Trek be at San Diego Comic-Con International 2016?

CBS recently released the world’s first official teaser trailer for their new Star Trek series which will premiere in 2017. While it doesn’t show us much since it’s only a teaser trailer it does however reveal the new logo look for Star Trek and to build upon excitement for the new series. This could also be a clever marketing ploy to build up interest for the release on a new Star Trek Beyond trailer in the next few days.

With this year celebrating the 50th anniversary of Star Trek,a new Star Trek movie coming out the same weekend as San Diego Comic-Con International and of course a new series in 2017, interest in the world of Star Trek is reaching fever pitch.

I imagine that CBS will at least make an appearance with the cast and crew of their new Star Trek series for a potential Hall H panel as it would be the best time to maximize publicity especially since there is already at least two planned Star Trek events. You can find out more information on these events below:
