Star Trek Discovery uniforms

It was a rule that plagued writers of previous Star Trek TV shows: in order to better represent Trek creator Gene Roddenberry’s idyllic vision of a utopian future, writers were strongly encouraged to avoid having Starfleet crew members in conflict with each other. But that won’t be the case on Star Trek: Discovery, because showrunners Aaron Harberts and Gretchen J. Berg have lifted that restriction for their writing staff, which should lead to a very different Trek show than any we’ve seen before.

Below, read more about the discarding of the old rule, see a photo of a new Star Trek Discovery uniform (ooh, tactical armor!), and check out an infographic that breaks down the new styles of the uniforms in detail.

star trek discovery delay

Star Trek: Discovery is premiering this fall — finally.

The newest Star Trek live-action TV series was announced to air on the CBS All Access streaming service back in November 2015 and had trouble getting off the ground, as showrunners Bryan Fuller left the project during a troubled development. But with a teaser trailer generating hype for the show, and a star-studded diverse cast including Chinese superstar Michelle Yeoh and The Walking Dead star Sonequa Martin-Green, it seems like Star Trek: Discovery can finally boldly go forward.

Co-creator and producer Alex Kurtzman dished on the reason for the show’s delay, as well as the celebrity cameos that are peppered throughout the series.

Let’s make a quick list of certain things: death, taxes, and people on the internet finding new ways to complain about the mere existence of The Big Bang Theory while it continues to be one the most popular shows on television. So as you sit down to watch (or possibly hate-watch) the Young Sheldon trailer, a prequel series following Jim Parsons’ character as a kid growing up in east Texas, understand that this show will probably be on the air for a long, long time.

The world needs Star Trek. We need Star Trek because a science fiction world that is all about the human race overcoming its differences and coming together to make a better future for everyone is the kind of message 2017 needs to be bludgeoned over the head with right about now. We also need Star Trek because it’s been 12 years since Star Trek: Enterprise ended and it’s about time for another show set in Gene Roddenberry’s legendary universe to come along.

CBS has released the first Star Trek: Discovery trailer, offering a first look at footage from the upcoming show.
