Hero Within is keeping everyone powered up at International Comic Con San Diego (SDCC). The pop culture merch brand is bringing back its offsite activation to the Gaslamp, playfully dubbed Energize Lounge II: The Wrath of Con!

The Energize Lounge is open at 332 J Street from 8-10 a.m. Thursday-Saturday and 8 a.m.-12 p.m. on Sunday, so you can jazz up for the show with coffee and official Star Trek merch. The lounge is only a block away from SDCC, so you won’t be late for grabbing any of the exclusives that you have your eyes on. 

Hero Within is partnering with other officially licensed Star Trek brands to power the event, including Star Trek Starfleet Command, Star Trek Wines, Star Trek Cruise, and Retrospect Studios. While you’re checking out all the goodness from the final frontier, you can also buy a canned cold brew from Jedidiah Coffee, along with other refreshments. 

You will also get the chance to win epic giveaways, with different companies sponsoring the days of the show, including Factory Entertainment on Thursday, Fansets on Friday, and The Pop Insider on Saturday. 

Hero Within will also be at Booth No. 1943 with Star Trek exclusives. Whether you’re only headed to SDCC for a day or the whole weekend, you’ll want fully powered before you go — what better way to do that than with the Star Trek fandom?
