Just as earlier today brought our first Star Trek: Discovery photo, the first trailer is out of this world. Yes, literally and figuratively. See for yourself, along with the latest details on the 15 (!) episode series!.
Star Trek fans’ crushing uncertainty has at last come to an end, as CBS finally reveals a first look at Star Trek: Discovery. Ahead of the network's Upfront presentation, CBS reveals two members of the Discovery crew, and a very strange location.
Star Trek fans are understandably on edge when it comes to Star Trek: Discovery, but CBS at least seems confident enough to keep casting. The latest to beam up are Battlestar Galactica alum Rekha Sharma, a Jericho star in a Klingon switcheroo, and more.
Despite being supported by a blindingly charismatic cast and some of the best action directors in the business, Paramount’s Star Trek franchise has somewhat been an exercise in diminishing returns after 2009’s big screen reboot. Last year’s Star Trek Beyond may have captured some of the fun of a standalone episode of the series, but it was a surprising disappointment with audiences: the film’s $158 million gross was nearly $100 million less than the first entry in the series and failed to break even on the studios $185 million investment. Those are the kind of numbers that make a studio think long and hard about investing in a sequel.
Star Trek: Discovery has been making plenty of progress with casting and production, though fans are still a bit unnerved by the change in schedule from January, to May, to fall. Even now, CBS brass won’t nail down a fall premiere window, saying “we’re not tied to any specific release date.”
You’d be forgiven not to realize CBS stayed mum on reports of Walking Dead star Sonequa Martin-Green leading the cast of Star Trek: Discovery, despite never directly contradicting it. Well, after Sunday’s fateful Dead finale, the cat is officially miles out of the bag, albeit with a surprising tweak.
Bears. Beets. Star Trek: Discovery? Somewhere, Dwight Schrute feels a chill in the air, as Office alum Rainn Wilson beams aboard the Star Trek franchise with a character that should prove familiar to fans of the original series.
Star Trek: Discovery will prove the first outing of the franchise without a Captain as its lead, but the Discovery’s ranking officer will nonetheless be a familiar face. Harry Potter and The OA star Jason Isaacs confirms his role in CBS’ Star Trek: Discovery, finding a nice comfy chair in the process.
The exit of showrunner Bryan Fuller understandably delayed CBS’ Star Trek: Discovery from its initial January 2017 premiere, but recent reports suggested there was no guarantee for its May rescheduling, either. Now, CBS reveals the series could be delayed as far back as fall, but definitely further than May.
The ongoing production of CBS’ Star Trek: Discovery may have leaked out some surprising changes, so what better way to wrestle back the narrative with some official casting? Latest to join Starfleet are 30 Rock star Maulik Pancholy and several others, staffing out the Starship Shenzhou.
