TNT is taking The Last Ship and Falling Skies to Comic-Con 2015 for two different reasons.
While this year’s Falling Skies Panel will be part the process of bidding farewell to a long-running sci-fi favorite, the network will be giving fans of The Last Ship an opportunity to experience the show in the Oculus Rift – being transported directly in the show’s world, as well as being able to attend a panel dealing with the show’s second season season.
Cast members will take part in both panels. For further details, follow the jump.

As part of this immersive activation, each participant will use an Oculus Rift headset to be transported into The Last Ship‘s fictional universe, where they must board a cargo ship taken over by the Immunes (immune survivors of the deadly plague that has nearly destroyed the entire population of the planet) and retrieve the last remnants of the primordial strain.
