If you grew up watching Star Trek in the 1960s, then you can appreciate this story about the connection Star Trek has to the state of Arkansas. Did you know there are several streets in West Little Rock named after characters in the long-running series?
At long last, Star Trek is boldly going back to TV. Just two weeks out from its CBS All-Access premiere, Star Trek: Discovery introduces us to Michael Burnham in two new clips from the series, along with one very scary Klingon.
Star Trek canon has practically folded in on itself, with rebooted movies following a new timeline, and Discovery returning ten years before the old one. And despite some aesthetic choices, Discovery will largely ignore any sense of the J.J. Abrams films, as well as the franchise’s many books.
If you were wondering how Star Trek’s TV return might look after three action-packed reboot films, look no further than Star Trek: Discovery. The new Comic-Con trailer marks the most action-packed Trek yet, featuring first looks at the title ship, Harry Mudd, and new details that might just break the original canon.
The Star Trek franchise has undergone a fascinating design overhaul, as fifty years of technology and storytelling change the way we portray The Federation’s Kirk-era adventures. The Klingons too have been updated repeatedly, to which Star Trek: Discovery bosses explain the latest change.
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. The departure of showrunner Bryan Fuller was an understandable setback, but Fuller’s replacements now explain the delays, owing to “artistry and custom craftsmanship,” along with a brand-new bridge.
