Even as precious few details of Bryan Fuller’s CBS Star Trek: Discovery have been made clear, it stands to reason that Fuller has in mind a different take on the Trek universe than the five series that wore it out in the first place. Next Generation star Brent Spiner now confirms as much, calling Fuller’s take “a completely different point of view,” as well answering if we can expect a Data cameo of some kind.

It’s been some time since William Shatner took part in any Star Trek revival, and with the movie franchise folding in on its own mythology, it might make sense of CBS’ Star Trek: Discovery to return the most famous Enterprise captain. Shatner is open to an appearance on the new series, but only “If I were useful.”

As the Star Trek film franchise wades even deeper into time-traveling trippiness, there remains the question of Star Trek: Discovery’s place in the universe for its TV return. We know it takes place in the prime (read: pre-reboot) timeline, but a new report may well have uncovered Discovery’s relationship to Kirk, Spock and the others.

Star Trek Beyond took an affirmative step toward LGBTQ representation with word that John Cho’s Lieutenant Hikaru Sulu would be depicted with a husband, though original portrayer George Takei had a surprisingly negative reaction to the nod toward his own sexuality. Now, leading the charge to put Trek back on TV with Star Trek: Discovery, Bryan Fuller weighs in on the “lovely move of inclusivity.”

The entire marketing campaign and dialogue around Star Trek Into Darkness — not to mention most of the runtime of the actual movie — was about the mysterious identity of its villain. Who was this guy Benedict Cumberbatch is playing? Was he an old character from an earlier movie? Could he be Khan? Oh, no, he’s “John Harrison.” Wait, who the hell is John Harrison? Why all the secrecy around a nobody named John Harrison? Are we sure he’s not Khan? No, J.J. Abrams insisted he wasn’t Khan and he wouldn’t straight-up lie to our whoops no never mind he straight-up lied, he’s Khan.

At long last, Comic-Con 2016 brought word that Bryan Fuller’s CBS All-Access Star Trek series would bear the title Discovery, named for the ship we glimpsed in the brief promo, though reactions to the design proved somewhat mixed. Many noted similarity to Ralph McQuarrie designs for the Enterprise, but according to executive producers, the U.S.S. Discovery may yet change its final look.

J.J. Abrams Calls the Next ‘Star Trek’ Script ‘Amazing’

Does it seem rude to talk about the next Star Trek movie while Star Trek Beyond is still in theaters? I sort of feel bad. While Matt Singer may have enjoyed the movie a little more than me, Star Trek Beyond is still a pretty fun ride and deserves at least a few days of appreciation before we move right along to the next thing. Part of me feels like I’m going over to my coworker’s desk the day he announces his retirement so I can pick through his things and claim them for my own cubicle. Then again, maybe if my coworker didn’t want his stuff stolen, he shouldn’t have announced his retirement so early. So that makes it J.J. Abrams’s fault.

The poster for Star Trek: The Motion Picture is so dramatic. The faces of William Shatner’s Captain Kirk, Leonard Nimoy’s Mr. Spock, and Persis Khambatta’s Lieutenant Ilia refracted through a rainbow spectrum of light. That image promises excitement beyond imagination. Adventure! Passion! Every color under the rainbow!
