Star Trek: Discovery is a series created exclusively for the CBS All Access service. It’s the first to be specifically for that streaming service and also the first Star Trek series since Star Trek: Enterprise ended it’s run in 2005.
Star Trek: Discovery will launch on Sunday, September 24th and run from 8:30 – 9:30 pm. The premiere will also be on demand via CBS All Access and for those subscribers, the second episode will also be available immediately following the premiere.
All new episodes will be available on CBS All Access from September 24th through November 5th where the show will take a seasonal break before returning for part two of its first season in January of 2018.
The cast will star names like our Walking Dead alum Sonequa Martin-Green, Michelle Yeoh, Doug Jones, and Anthony Rapp just to name a few.
The premise of the series will follow the crew of the USS Discovery as they take on new worlds and it’s set roughly 10 years before the events of the original Star Trek. This means the series will allow long term fans to have a deeper understanding of Star Trek as they know it and give new fans an entry way into what built Star Trek into the pop culture icon it’s become.
The season is quoted as revolving around ‘an incident and an event in Star Trek history that’s been talked about but never explored.’
If you’ve not subscribed to CBS All Access, you still have time to do so before the series begins and we recommend it, it’s lining up to be an incredible show.
