Star Trek Discovery: New TV Show for Fall '17 Debut on CBS All Access

Recommended Posts

Star Trek returns to the small screen this Fall courtesy of CBS All Access. Much like Star Trek Voyager launched UPN back in the mid-90s before it was absorbed into the CW Discovery will launch the CBS All Access subscription TV service. The 13 episode series is set to debut this Fall, being pushed back from a May summer show launch. It takes place after Star Trek Enterprise('01) but before Star Trek('66) with Kirk in command of the Enterprise. This means if the show is a hit not only will it explore the early 23rd century of the Federation reaching into deeper space but could allow for Enterprise('01) cameos and allow for exploring stories on the Enterprise under the command of Robert April and Christopher Pike. 


Discovery has a solid cast on paper. The official premise for the first season is below.




Set roughly ten years before the events of the original Star Trek, the series follows the crew of the USS Discoveryas they discover new worlds and civilizations, while exploring the franchise's signature contemporary themes. The season-long storyline revolves around "an incident and an event in Star Trek history that's been talked about but never been explored"




Discovery Crew

Jason Isaacs = Captain Lorca

Doug Jones = Lt. Saru

Sonequa Martin-Green = Lt.Cmdr Rainsford (ships #1)

Maulik Punchily = Dr. Nambue

Anthony Rapp = Lt. Stamets

Terry Serpico = Admiral Anderson

Sam Vartholomeos = Ensign Connor

Mary Wiseman = Cadet Tilly


Recurring roles

Michelle Yeoh = Captain Georgiou (different Federation ship)

Rainn Wilson = Harry Mudd (listed on 9 episodes)

James Frain = Sarek



Filming is underway now and I'm very much looking forward to this. What say you Trek fans?!

Star Trek Discovery recently wrapped up Season 2 that featured Captain Pike and Spock with cameos from 'Number One' and NCC-1701 herself this year!!


I must say I wholly love how this season helped iron out story inconsistencies bridging this to TOS era.

They have to give us a series with Pike and crew now! So curious to see where Discovery S3 goes after that ending!


Surely others here are watching ST:Disco
