Now you can boldly go where no man has gone before… New York. Sorry if that wasn’t the most obvious of opening for this particular story. I’m sure it’s gone there before.

To celebrate and honor the 50th anniversary CBS and ReedPOP have announced the new convention that will honor the popular sci-fi franchise; as announced on the official website Star Trek Missions,  via EW.

star-trekStar Trek: Mission New York will take place at the Javits Center September 2nd through the 4th and will include guests, panels, screenings, merchandise and even interactive exhibits. The site, linked above will offer up more information daily. For the hardcore fan, you can also set your watch to the site which has a countdown already in motion.

Liz Kalodner, CBS’ Consumer Products’ executive vice president and general manager had this to say,

“Star Trek: Mission New York will celebrate everything going on in the Star Trek universe, and we couldn’t be more thrilled to bring it back to the birthplace of the original Star Trek convention and do so with a partner like ReedPOP,” 

She is referring to the very first convention ever held for Star Trek, all the way back in 1972. As for the one coming in September of this year, fans will get to honor the films and television that have taken over pop culture, even now. With Star Trek Beyond being the film to hit theatres this July 22nd, 2016, fans will then be primed to come to New York and hit the convention floor.
