star trek discovery trailer 1

Comic-Con is the epicenter of all things geeky, so of course the new Star Trek: Discovery trailer premiered there. The new series, which is set to arrive on CBS later this year, looks to invigorate Star Trek for the small screen by looking to the past – the show is set a decade before the adventures of James T. Kirk and promises to cast light on a time period in the series’ sprawling timeline that has yet to be properly explored on screen.

But you don’t have to be at the series’ panel, or even at Comic-COn, to watch the new trailer. It’s online right now and you can watch it below.

Star Trek Discovery Comic-Con Exhibit

Star Trek is coming back to television in a big way this fall with an all new series coming to CBS All Access. Since San Diego Comic-Con is full of the kind of nerds who are looking forward to exploring the final frontier, it should come as no surprise that Star Trek: Discovery has a big presence at Comic-Con.

Not only is there a panel here at the convention, but CBS All Access also put together a little Star Trek: Discovery exhibition full of props, costumes and artwork of the new ships that fans will see when the new series begins this fall. Lucky for you, we got a closer look at everything on display, which includes tons of new information about the show’s characters and much more.

Doug Jones Star Trek Discovery

You probably know Doug Jones as the man who played Abe Sapien in Hellboy, the Faun and the Pale Man in Pan’s Labyrinth, and the Silver Surfer in 2007’s otherwise-forgettable Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer. But very soon, you might know him best as Lieutenant Saru, a character on the upcoming CBS All Access drama Star Trek: Discovery.

In the show’s first trailer, we saw that Jones’ alien character was “biologically determined for one purpose alone: to sense the coming of death.” Aside from that, we didn’t know much about him. Now we know all about his alien character’s origins, courtesy of a couple of new interviews. Find out the latest Doug Jones Star Trek Discovery info below.

star trek discovery story details

Star Trek: Discovery is the first Star Trek TV show to air in 12 years. With that, come plenty of expectations: a diverse crew, a noble captain and lead character, and a show that boldly explores different planets and story lines.

But Star Trek: Discovery is changing things up. Not only is it airing on the streaming platform CBS All Access, it will feature a lead character played by Sonequa Martin-Green who is not the highest-ranking officer. Showrunners Aaron Harberts and Gretchen J. Berg recently revealed the details of how Martin-Green’s story will progress and how it will impact the show.

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.

Star Trek with TRON Legacy Score

Star Trek: The Motion Picture was quite the disappointment when it hit theaters in 1979, even for the most hardcore Trekkies out there. It’s a sci-fi slog that was nowhere near as satisfying of a leap from TV to film as many had hoped. Thankfully, it was followed by Star Trek: The Wrath of Khan, and that rescued the film franchise and got fans back on board. But there is one thing that makes Star Trek: The Motion Picture a bit more interesting, and that’s a change in the film’s score.

Filmmaker Patrick Collins took the time to edit about 22 minutes of footage from Star Trek: The Motion Picture and enhanced it with Daft Punk’s outstanding, electric score from TRON Legacy. With all of the trippy visuals from the first Star Trek movie, Daft Punk’s score makes the perfect accompaniment.
