The jury’s out on how deeply Star Trek: Discovery connects to the original franchise, but at least one episode will make it a Number One priority. Our favorite beard-having, leg-swinging First Officer is back, as Next Generation star Jonathan Frakes will work behind the scenes on Discovery.
Fifty years of Star Trek means endless tweaks to Gene Roddenberry’s idyllic vision of the future, and Star Trek: Discovery will add a major one. Despite a prior franchise mandate, the new CBS iteration will apparently allow Starfleet crew to actually conflict with one another; not just alien warships.
The first Star Trek: Discovery trailer finally revealed the new CBS series’ characters and aesthetic, yet we never saw the title ship or its crew. Birds and stones, Trek fans, as a new photo reveals Discovery’s Captain Lorca; both the man and his ship.
Star Trek: Discovery at last provided us with a September premiere, but more than a few details of the series itself remain hazy. The trailer seemed to imply some Vulcan origins for Sonequa Martin-Green’s leading role; now explained by the Walking Dead alum herself.
At long last, CBS’ Star Trek: Discovery finally commit to a September premiere after delays from January, to May and beyond.

We’ve waited patiently for months, and CBS is finally rewarding us with a discovery. Star Trek: Discovery, that is, as the network at last confirms a September premiere date for the new TV iteration, along with word of a divided run.
The first trailer for CBS’ Star Trek: Discovery certainly won back goodwill lost by multiple delays and showrunner Bryan Fuller’s exit, but it remains to be seen how much of Fuller’s ideas will make the final product. Now, executive producer Alex Kurtzman lays out how Fuller’s influence will be felt in the first season, as well as a second.
Just as earlier today brought our first Star Trek: Discovery photo, the first trailer is out of this world. Yes, literally and figuratively. See for yourself, along with the latest details on the 15 (!) episode series!.
Star Trek fans’ crushing uncertainty has at last come to an end, as CBS finally reveals a first look at Star Trek: Discovery. Ahead of the network's Upfront presentation, CBS reveals two members of the Discovery crew, and a very strange location.
Star Trek fans are understandably on edge when it comes to Star Trek: Discovery, but CBS at least seems confident enough to keep casting. The latest to beam up are Battlestar Galactica alum Rekha Sharma, a Jericho star in a Klingon switcheroo, and more.
Despite being supported by a blindingly charismatic cast and some of the best action directors in the business, Paramount’s Star Trek franchise has somewhat been an exercise in diminishing returns after 2009’s big screen reboot. Last year’s Star Trek Beyond may have captured some of the fun of a standalone episode of the series, but it was a surprising disappointment with audiences: the film’s $158 million gross was nearly $100 million less than the first entry in the series and failed to break even on the studios $185 million investment. Those are the kind of numbers that make a studio think long and hard about investing in a sequel.
