Star Trek: Discovery
CBS All Access has debuted the action-packed official trailer for the second season of Star Trek: Discovery following the panel for the series at Comic Con.
The trailer features the return of Sonequa Martin-Green as Michael Burnham and introduced a new alien character named Linus, while showing us a few other new cast members.
We also got a first look at some snazzy new Starfleet crew uniforms that look very familiar.
Showrunner Alex Kurtzman confirms we will be seeing Spock in the new season which will have a ‘family’ theme unlike the war theme of the first season.
Eaglemoss Hero Collector made a great showing at San Diego Comic Con International 2017, this year looks to improve upon last year’s success. This year they will be showcasing the next entries of their Discovery model collection, their XL Starships line, the Special Issue vessels, and their upcoming Star Trek character bust collection.
All these can be found at booth #3249. Here is a quick preview of the items expected to be on display.
When it was announced that CBS would once again visit the well and give us a new Star Trek series, it was welcome by many hard-core Trekkies. After all, it’s been 16 years since Star Trek: Voyager had gone off the air. While fans have had the Kelvin Universe films from JJ Abram’s Star Trek reboot and their subsequent sequels, there wasn’t anything on the small screen to hold us over. With the announcement of Star Trek: Discovery to not focus on a captain of a ship/space station for the first time, and the fact that it would be the first one that you had to pay for on CBS All Access, some fans were hesitant to embrace the new show. However, it won over the disbelievers as it was a hit with critics and fans. (more…)
Star Trek: Discovery‘s Sonequa Martin-Green tweeted out a surprise family connection with the original Star Trek‘s Spock today that certainly seems to come out of left field. It turns out that Commander Michael Burnham played by Martin-Green is the half-sister of our favorite Vulcan science officer. Go ahead and scratch your head, we’re doing the same, and then click-through for more details. (more…)
Rather famously, the first trailer for Star Trek: Discovery didn’t win over many fans, whether it was legitimate fan concerns about canon, or the concerns of the lunatic fringe that don’t like seeing a black woman be a focus of the show. “Star Trek has always been pictorial of diversity and universality and unity,” said series star Sonequa Martin-Green. “If you say you love the legacy of Star Trek, but you don’t love that, then you’ve missed it. I encourage you to come on the journey with us.” At San Diego Comic Con, the journey began with a new trailer. (more…)
While the smart money is on Star Trek Discovery swiftly becoming the most pirated show not on television once the series begin, at least now there is a set premiere date of September 24th, 2017. That’s on a Sunday and the series can only be seen on CBS All Access, a pay to play streaming service, except for the one time airing of the pilot that same Sunday night at 8:30-9:30 PM (PST) on your local CBS channel.

After a long year-and-a-half of rumours and waiting, we finally have some semblance of an idea about what Star Trek: Discovery will look and sound like. To say that a lot’s riding on Discovery is something of an understatement. With the movie series seemingly stalled after the mixed results of Star Trek Beyond, Paramount/CBS is banking on Trek making waves in its natural habitat: the TV set, but TV’s changed a lot since Star Trek was last in our living rooms over 12 years ago. Fortunately, by the looks of Discovery’s first trailer (which was released this past week), it seems that the past is being left in the rearview. (more…)
It has taken almost as long as it took for Riker to get his own ship, but fans finally have hope for Star Trek: Discovery. CBS All Access has dropped the first trailer for the new series. Many were concerned about the shows fate after it was pushed back from being released earlier this year and the departure of show runner, Bryan Fuller but the first trailer for the new series, thus giving some fans a much-needed, new hope.
The nature of Star Trek: Discovery is as mysterious now as it was about a year and a half ago when it was first announced. In a different world, the series would have premiered some time this month (of course in another different world, it would have premiered this past January), but CBS and Paramount are taking their time developing the series, which Trekkies are hoping is only good news as they eagerly await the first new Star Trek to appear on their TV screens in 12 years. Now, a first look at the new series in the form of an official photo shows two of the main characters in action, including the woman they call “Number One.” (more…)
While the cast and crew continue to work on the new series, CBS seems unable or unwilling to set another premiere date for Star Trek: Discovery. Mark DeBevoise, the CBS Interactive President and Chief Operating Officer when asked by Vulture if the show might premiere this fall said, We’re not stating. Should that make you worry about the new series? DeBevoise went on to perhaps try to sooth those nervous feelings and you can check out what he said below. (more…)
