 Set 10 years before the adventures of Kirk in The Original Series, Star Trek: Discovery sees the return of Star Trek to television. The series is expected to debut on CBS All Access streaming service sometime this year, with episodes available in the US and on Netflix in certain areas of the world.

Whats your favorite TV show? Is 7 your lucky number? Have you got CBS or NetFlix?
Live Long and Prosper, trekkers.


  1. That CBS all access thing may eventually have quite a few good shows on it to justify people spending money on it. Let's hope this turns out to be a good show.

  2. Star Trek TNG cost 1 million a show, think that was expensive? Discovery is way more expensiver...haha

  3. I love that there's a big cast, and spread throughout a number of environments. Star Trek used to be scared of that. But then it kind of became the norm in scripted television.

  4. will be on CBS which is great since I don't get Netflix or HBO. I am going to look forward to seeing this and now...when will it be on? When does it start? I love Michelle Yeoh so this will be fun and Sarek is one of my favourite characters.

  5. Sounds like this will be awesome, with new talent!

    Discovery is way more expensiver?

  6. The cast and characters of Star Trek: Discovery look promising. I'm glad to hear it might be on Netflix. I'd be much more likely to renew my Netflix than sign up for CBS All Access.


Ignore the robot question and just punch it!
