CBS will be launching a new iteration of Star Trek next year. Discovery will premiere on the network’s All Access, and will take place about a decade before The Original Series. The show will also feature a female lieutenant commander on board Discovery, along with a cast that will include more aliens and a gay character. Needless to say, we have high hopes.
Star Trek: Discovery will be the first new Star Trek series since 2001’s Enterprise. That show lasted for four seasons and was met with mixed reactions from fans of the franchise. While the show did improve over the course of its run, it was the last entry until Paramount decided to reboot the franchise with J.J. Abrams’ 2009 film Star Trek.
