Description: This series will take place prior to the events of Star Trek: The Original Series. Following are the most current updates on the show:
Announced at the TCA today, the main character of Discovery will be a woman and—in an unprecedented move for the franchise—not the captain of the U.S.S. Discovery (get a look at the ship in the video above).
“In order to understand something that is so completely alien from her, she must first understand herself,” [Bryan] Fuller said. “That’s part of our journey on this planet to get along, and that’s part of our journey in this first season.”
The first 13 episodes will be serialized and play out almost like a novel, “with each episode being a chapter of that novel, and within that chapter there’s a beginning, middle and end,” Fuller said. He added, “We will have episodes that exist by themselves but are a part of a much bigger story.”
“We’ve seen six characters from the captain’s point of view,” Fuller noted. He added that putting a different character at the center will give the story a richer context. Source: CBS.com
Note: Star Trek: Discovery will have its world premiere on CBS in January of 2017. After that, it will be available on the network’s streaming service CBS All Access (and on Netlfix outside of the U.S. and Canada).
