STAR TREK: DISCOVERY
CBS ALL ACCESS, SEPT. 24
(first episode airs on CBS, Sunday at 8:30 ET/PT)
Fans have seen no more than a trailer so far, but that’s been enough to thrill many Star Trek devotees while enraging a few others. (The “rage” part mostly comes from those who seem unable to cope with the very idea of a Star Trek series being built around a woman of color, Sonequa Martin-Green.) The trailer certainly is impressive — far more impressive than any new drama on CBS — so Discovery probably ranks as the most highly anticipated new series. Let’s just hope that anticipation is rewarded.
