“Star Trek” fans now have a good idea of what they’re in for with the new CBS All Access series “Star Trek: Discovery.” CBS unveiled a first-look video this week, which you can watch below.
The network also announced that the series will feature 15 episodes, up from the previously announced 13, and will include a companion after-show, “Talking Trek,” presented on CBS All Access.
“The return of the famed franchise will premiere in the U.S. on CBS All Access this fall, following a broadcast premiere on the CBS Television Network,” CBS noted. “‘Star Trek: Discovery’ will follow the voyages of Starfleet on their missions to discover new worlds and new lifeforms, and one Starfleet officer who must learn that to truly understand all things alien, you must first understand yourself.”
The new series comes 50 years after the premiere of the original “Star Trek” TV series.
“The series will feature a new ship, new characters and new missions, while embracing the same ideology and hope for the future that inspired a generation of dreamers and doers,” CBS said in its announcement.
