“Star Trek” and “Star Trek Into Darkness,” to Executive Produce

CBS Studios International to Distribute the Series Globally

For Television and Multiple Platforms


STUDIO CITY, CALIF. AND NEW YORK, N.Y. – Nov. 2, 2015 – CBS Television Studios announced today it will launch a totally new “Star Trek” television series in January 2017. The new series will blast off with a special preview broadcast on the CBS Television Network. The premiere episode and all subsequent first-run episodes will then be available exclusively in the United States on CBS All Access, the Network’s digital subscription video on demand and live streaming service.

The next chapter of the “Star Trek” franchise will also be distributed concurrently for television and multiple platforms around the world by CBS Studios International.

The new program will be the first original series developed specifically for U.S. audiences for CBS All Access, a cross-platform streaming service that brings viewers thousands of episodes from CBS’s current and past seasons on demand, plus the ability to stream their local CBS Television station live for $5.99 per month. CBS All Access already offers every episode of all previous “Star Trek” television series.

The brand-new “Star Trek” will introduce new characters seeking imaginative new worlds and new civilizations, while exploring the dramatic contemporary themes that have been a signature of the franchise since its inception in 1966.

Alex Kurtzman will serve as executive producer for the new “Star Trek” TV series. Kurtzman co-wrote and produced the blockbuster films “Star Trek” (2009) with Roberto Orci, and “Star Trek Into Darkness” (2013) with Orci and Damon Lindelof. Both films were produced and directed by J.J. Abrams.

The new series will be produced by CBS Television Studios in association with Kurtzman’s Secret Hideout. Kurtzman and Heather Kadin will serve as executive producers. Kurtzman is also an executive producer for the hit CBS television series SCORPION and LIMITLESS, along with Kadin and Orci, and for HAWAII FIVE-0 with Orci.

“Star Trek,” which will celebrate its 50th anniversary in 2016, is one of the most successful entertainment franchises of all time. The original “Star Trek” spawned a dozen feature films and five successful television series. Almost half a century later, the “Star Trek” television series are licensed on a variety of different platforms in more than 190 countries, and the franchise still generates more than a billion social media impressions every month.

Born from the mind of Gene Roddenberry, the original “Star Trek” series debuted on Sept. 8, 1966 and aired for three seasons – a short run that belied the influence it would have for generations. The series also broke new ground in storytelling and cultural mores, providing a progressive look at topics including race relations, global politics and the environment.

“There is no better time to give ‘Star Trek’ fans a new series than on the heels of the original show’s 50th anniversary celebration,” said David Stapf, President, CBS Television Studios. “Everyone here has great respect for this storied franchise, and we’re excited to launch its next television chapter in the creative mind and skilled hands of Alex Kurtzman, someone who knows this world and its audience intimately.”

“This new series will premiere to the national CBS audience, then boldly go where no first-run ‘Star Trek’ series has gone before – directly to its millions of fans through CBS All Access,” said Marc DeBevoise, Executive Vice President/General Manager – CBS Digital Media. “We’ve experienced terrific growth for CBS All Access, expanding the service across affiliates and devices in a very short time. We now have an incredible opportunity to accelerate this growth with the iconic ‘Star Trek,’ and its devoted and passionate fan base, as our first original series.”

“Every day, an episode of the ‘Star Trek’ franchise is seen in almost every country in the world,” said Armando Nuñez, President and CEO, CBS Global Distribution Group. “We can’t wait to introduce ‘Star Trek’s’ next voyage on television to its vast global fan base.”

CBS All Access offers its customers more than 7,500 episodes from the current television season, previous seasons and classic shows on demand nationwide, as well as the ability to stream local CBS stations live in more than 110 markets. Subscribers can use the service online and across devices via CBS.com, the CBS App for iOS, Android and Windows 10, as well as on connected devices such as Apple TV, Android TV, Chromecast, Roku players and Roku TV, with more connected devices to come.

The new television series is not related to the upcoming feature film “Star Trek Beyond,” which is scheduled to be distributed by Paramount Pictures in summer 2016

Michael Burnham?

Never heard of him.

I could swallow her attitude if she had been there for more than a year before Discovery arrived. If they had said she'd been waiting 5 years I could maybe buy it. By that time she would have learned enough that she really would know better than everyone, and her personal goals, interests, mores, and morals would have had enough time to credibly evolve.

She could have grown impatient by that time, and once the crew arrives she wouldn't want to waste her time on nicities and glad-handed blow jobs. She'd be a dick and get them up to speed as quickly as possible. Her character could have more believably straddled two worlds and two lives and thus created more believable internal and external strife. Hell, she didn't even get laid in that year waiting on Discovery, or at least that appears to be the implication when she and Book share a kiss on screen. You have to let enough time pass for her to get some true STRANGE strange.

Terra Burnham is somehow worse by orders of magnitude, to boot.

That plot bit may be the most unbelievable thing in a show about unbelievable things.

It's not a great sign when the cool moments are mostly just callbacks to previous series.

That's odd. Outside of the Enterprise crew, the only truly interesting character on the show so far was mirror Lorca.

Of course, nothing about this piece of shit would surprise me at this point. Star Trek made by people who hate Star Trek for people who don't give a shit about Star Trek. That pretty much sums up Discovery.

I was really looking forward to the Georgio spinoff. Then I watched last week's episode where they went back to the mirror universe. My god, evil Tilly made my eyes bleed. I'm done. I just...I just can't anymore. What a waste. So much potential for a fun story arc this season. Instead we get a bunch of cry-babies and shitty actors. This is hands down the worst Trek property to date. I'd watch Enterprise, Nemesis, and all the Jar Jar Abrams crap back to back for weeks before I ever watch any more of this shit.

I'm currently re-watching Enterprise. That show has aged extremely well. Dr. Phlox is easily the second best doctor on Star Trek after The Doctor on Voyager (who was the sole redeeming point on Voyager until 7o9 showed up). Bones clocks in at #3, with Bashir at #4, and Crusher bringing up the rear.

5 episodes into S3 now and I see they are still making the same writing mistakes as before. Also, why is Michael Burnham involved/the center of every single storyline or episode on the show (for example, why did she go to the Trill home world instead of say Culber particularly in an episode sort of commenting on LGBTQ+ issues)? Sure maybe the rest of them do all suck (Saru's dinner with them was one of the worst scenes in Trek I've ever seen), but this is not how you develop the rest of the cast (which this show has badly needed to do since its inception and which it has done a terrible, terrible job of).

Burnham's ridiculous arguments and attitude to the Admiral 1000 years in the future also make no sense at all. He has no reason to trust her or any of them.

There are some very good episodes of Enterprise in there (in which Phlox plays a central role). Some really bad ones too, but it's still a redeemable show overall.
