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.

You can dis­cuss ev­ery episode as soon as it ‘drops’ on Net­flix on our sis­ter site Den of Geek ( www.de­nofgeek.com).

Me­dia-stream­ing soft­ware Plex is now free to use on ri­val ser­vice Kodi, so you can watch all your video con­tent in one place with­out need­ing to switch be­tween the two. The Plex add-on ( bit.ly/plex432) was pre­vi­ously only avail­able to Kodi users with a Plex Pass sub­scrip­tion, but now ev­ery­one can use its slick in­ter­face to man­age and en­joy their videos, photos and mu­sic, giv­ing you the best of both worlds.
