Toronto, the fi­nal fron­tier

This month, Starfleet’s new­est ves­sel boldly goes where no one has gone be­fore: Toronto’s Pinewood Stu­dios. Star Trek: Dis­cov­ery—the sci-fi fran­chise’s first tele­vi­sion series since 2005’s En­ter­prise—was filmed largely in the east-end fa­cil­ity. It fol­lows the rise of a young of­fi­cer (The Walk­ing Dead’s Sonequa Martin-Green) and, rumour has it, the fraught mis­sion to bro­ker peace be­tween the Fed­er­a­tion and the Klin­gons. It’s a new crew, a dif­fer­ent ship and un­charted worlds, but diehard Trekkies will find plenty they’re fa­mil­iar with: Ro­mu­lans, Spock’s fa­ther and, we can only imag­ine, a new batch of un­lucky red­shirts.
