The latest look at CBS All Access’ Star Trek: Discovery dropped at San Diego Comic-Con today and it looks pretty fantastic, albeit a dark take on things.
You certainly can’t ignore the amazing production design for the next round of adventures set in the Star Trek universe that won’t be on broadcast television. If you can get past the ret con that this flashy new show is supposed to lead into the 5-year mission Shatner/Nimoy years seen in the original series, you’ll be OK. If you’re a continuity purist, fasten your seatbelt and take your meds.
Star Trek: Discovery is set for a CBS All Access premiere Sunday, September 24 for a 15-episode run, following a broadcast premiere on the CBS Television Network.
Here is the official press release:
STAR TREK: DISCOVERY will follow the voyages of Starfleet on their missions to discover new worlds and new life forms, and one Starfleet officer who must learn that to truly understand all things alien, you must first understand yourself. The series will feature a new ship and new characters while embracing the same ideology and hope for the future that inspired a generation of dreamers and doers.
The series will premiere on the CBS Television Network Sunday, Sept. 24, 2017 with all subsequent episodes available on CBS All Access, the Network’s digital subscription video on demand and live streaming service, and will be distributed concurrently by CBS Studios International on Netflix in 188 countries and in Canada on Bell Media’s Space channel and OTT service CraveTV. STAR TREK: DISCOVERY is produced by CBS Television Studios in association with Alex Kurtzman’s Secret Hideout, Bryan Fuller’s Living Dead Guy Productions and Roddenberry Entertainment. Alex Kurtzman, Bryan Fuller, Heather Kadin, Gretchen J. Berg & Aaron Harberts, Akiva Goldsman, Rod Roddenberry and Trevor Roth serve as executive producers.
