‘Star Trek: Discovery’ Officially Starts Production in New Teaser
It’s taken a long, winding road to get there, but Star Trek: Discovery is finally ready to leave spacedock. See for yourself in the first official production teaser, including glimpses of new aliens, uniforms, ships and more!
CBS released a nostalgic retrospective teaser for the Star Trek franchise as a whole, culminating in a rapid-fire look at Discovery beginning production. We don’t see any of the new characters up close, but check out a smattering of new images, including an updated U.S.S. Discovery:
Previously, Star Trek: Discovery confirmed among the cast Sonequa Martin-Green as our Lt. Commander lead, James Frain as Spock’s father Sarek, Doug Jones as an alien science officer, Adam Rapp as the TV franchise’s first openly-gay character and Michelle Yeoh as Captain of a different ship, along with several Klingon roles. Ex-showrunner Bryan Fuller also recently stepped up to clarify his limited involvement in the project going forward.
Shooting in Toronto, the new 13-episode Star Trek: Discovery is officially said to take place 10 years before Kirk’s original Enterprise mission, as well to be “heavily serialized,” akin to a novel. The new series will also explore the fallout of an event referenced, but never seen in the original series.
Wrath of Khan director Nicholas Meyer has also joined alongside Gene Roddenberry’s son Rod, fan-favorite Voyager novel alum Kirsten Beyer, franchise vet Joe Menosky and Heroes writer Aron Coleite.
Star Trek: Discovery is tentatively scheduled for May, but what do we make of the new images?
