A new Star Trek TV series, Star Trek: Discovery, is coming this fall. The first episode will air on CBS and all subsequent episodes will air exclusively on CBS All Access, CBS' streaming service. Now the first trailer has been shared. Watch it below.

Star Trek: Discovery is set 10 years before the original Star Trek TV series and stars Sonequa Martin-Green (The Walking Dead) as first officer Michael Burnham, with Michelle Yeoh playing Captain Philippa Georgiou. Alex Kurtzman, who co-wrote the first two rebooted Star Trek movies and co-created modern sci-fi TV classic Fringe, is executive producing the new series. Bryan Fuller (acclaimed creator of Pushing Daisies and Hannibal who also worked on Star Trek: Voyager back in the day) was originally involved, but bowed out to focus on his Starz series American Gods. Nicholas Meyer, the writer/director of fan favorites Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan and Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country, is also involved.

The iconic space franchise started in 1966 and has spawned four subsequent TV series and 13 movies, but has been off the air for a over a decade, since the series finale of the poorly received Star Trek: Enterprise in 2005. Since then Paramount has put its focus behind the rebooted Star Trek movies (a third one, Star Trek Beyond, came out last summer, in conjunction with Star Trek's 50th anniversary).

Looks great. I like that the main character/aspiring captain is apparently focused on unifying disparate groups. Currently our planet could do with some lessons about putting aside our petty squabbles and focusing instead on the often neglected larger priorities of our civilization. I hope they don’t focus too much on the Klingons, however. To me, Klingons are very one note (honor!) and not very interesting. Maybe this series will have a different take. LL&P 🖖
