Star Trek Discovery: First new Trek series in a decade now available

Star Trek: Discovery is produced by CBS Television Studios in association with Alex Kurtzman's Secret Hideout, Bryan Fuller's Living Dead Guy Productions and Roddenberry Entertainment. She mutinied in the first place, which is ok if something has taken over your mind, but not if you made the decision, but this is a world with a very different attitude long before she decided she knew what was best for everyone.

FOX | Who Shot Biggie & Tupac? did 2.8 mil and a 1.1.

In truth, the first two episodes that arrive on Netflix today - "The Vulcan Hello" and "Battle at the Binary Stars" - function more as a standalone TV movie, setting up the tone and feel of the show while leaving about as much wiggle room for the future as conceivably possible.

There were warning signs, there was drama behind the scenes, but against all odds, Star Trek: Discovery is coming strong out of the gate. As you may have heard, Star Trek: Discovery is also available to stream on Netflix but not for everybody. It stars Martin-Green as the first officer of the USS Shenzhou, who was raised as a Vulcan by Sarek (Frain), the father of Spock. Trek thrives on these debates, but the new aggression does breathe some life into the show - it's hard to imagine one of Picard's Next Generation monologues on this ship.

Discovery is set about a decade prior to the events of the original 60s TV series and remains in that show's timeline, rather than the rebooted recent films featuring Chris Pine and Karl Urban.

The USS Discovery, in the form of a light effect, flies over NY. Along with The Good Fight, a well reviewed but modestly watched spinoff of longtime CBS series The Good Wife, Discovery is the only original series CBS All-Access is now offering, and the future of both the Star Trek franchise and the streaming service rest on Discovery's shoulders.

Now that the two-part premiere has debuted, many Star Trek alums have weighed in on the latest installment of the legendary sci-fi franchise, sharing their own unfiltered thoughts on the prequel series.

Ultimately, what we're trying to say here is mostly that it's not that enormous of an investment, and if you do love Star Trek and want some quality fall programming, it's probably worth the buy.

Nearly no one has seen a Klingon in more than 100 years. You're not going to be willing to pay $12-18 for two or three months of All Access programming to watch this show? Discovery feels like the rebirth of a franchise, much in the same way Star Wars: The Force Awakens did for Star Wars, and it doesn't back away from boldly going where (almost) no Star Trek series has gone before. It moves fast and the story is gripping, and the visuals easily eclipse anything done by Star Trek on TV before. "So that really puts everything on Sonequa Martin-Green, at least for me, and even as great as she is, I'm not sure if she's enough".
