Set 10 years before the Original Series (and marking 50 years since it first screened), Star Trek: Discovery follows the crew of the USS Discovery as they take on the Klingon Federation in a war they’re only just beginning to understand. The 15-episode first season was entirely funded by Netflix and each instalment will appear on the streaming service the day after it’s shown on CBS in the US. Annoyingly, the season will be broken into two ‘chapters’, with a break between 6 November and January 2018.
The crew of the Discovery includes Sonequa Martin Green (as Lilieutenant Commander Michael Burnham), Michelle Yeoh and Jajason Isaacs. Netflix says the new series will “embrace the same idideology and hope for the future that inspired a generation of drdreamers and doers”, though that hasn’t stopped some sceptical Trtrekkies accusing the producers of disregarding series creator Genege Roddenberry’s utopian ‘rules’, such as there never being conflictco between Starfleet crew members. However, judging by ththe exciting, high-quality trailers, we think Netflix is on to a winner.
