Star Trek: Discovery Officially in ProducionFebruary 1st, 2017
While the new Star Trek show, Discovery has apparently been delayed a bit, at least now have a teaser for the series. The show has officially begun production, and this clip is loaded with teases. After spending the first 30 seconds or so reminiscing about Trek’s heritage, we get to see some alien costumes, some images of the ship once again as well as other more traditional ship images, the uniform, some sets and more.
The uniforms are in line with what they wore on Enterprise, which makes sense from what we know about the era that this show takes place in. We also see the Captain’s chair. There’s a lot to see here. Right now I am hopeful that this show captures the true Star Trek spirit. In my mind, that means TOS. We will find out eventually, though we still don’t have a release date for the series.
The series stars Sonequa Martin-Green, Doug Jones, Michelle Yeoh, Anthony Rapp, Chris Obi, Shazad Latif, Mary Chieffo, and James Frain, and will first premiere with a special episode on CBS to get viewers hooked on the series. After that point, the show will be exclusively available on CBS All Access, and via Netflix outside of the US and Canada.
