Trekkies at Comic-Con were treated to a new look at CBS All Access’ upcoming series “Star Trek: Discovery,” set to debut in September. It’s the first glimpse of the “Star Trek” reboot since its initial May teaser, but unlike the first trailer, which included only scenes from its first episode, the new preview has action from several episodes spliced together. The new series will follow the voyages of Starfleet on their missions to discover new worlds and forms of life, as well as one Starfleet officer who must learn that “to truly understand all things alien, you must first understand yourself.” “Star Trek: Discovery” will feature a new ship and characters, while tapping into the ethos of the show’s roots.
When 'Discovery,' the newest chapter in the sci-fi franchise, debuts this fall, it will feature Klingons speaking Klingon — and not primarily English — with subtitles.
Today was the penultimate day of the Television Critics Association summer press tour, an annual event which holds a variety of different panels – and this year, one of those panels was ran by Bryan Fuller, who revealed a lot of information about the new Star Trek: Discovery program, set to launch in 2017 on CBS All Access in the US, on terrestrial television in Canada, and on Netflix worldwide. The intention is to provide a different point of view from prior Star Trek series, given that the previous 6 (presumably including the animated series) have been from the perspective of the Captain. Fuller has, in the past, stated that casting for Discovery will be ‘colour blind’, and as such our new lead may be of any race.
