Last night we got our first good look at the new Star Trek TV series, Discovery; its trailer was packed with some gorgeous shots, as well as new ships, uniforms, and tech of the show, which is set 10 years before the original series. Here’s everything we noticed.
After a brief tease this morning, CBS have just revealed our first full look at Star Trek: Discovery, giving us our best glimpse at what’s to come in the future of Star Trek’s past.
Our first good look at the stars of the next Star Trek show is here, and there’s not a Starfleet uniform in sight. But there is a mysterious planet, and a peek at the show’s two leading ladies—Michelle Yeoh and Sonequa Martin-Green—in action.
What can you say about a trailer that sums up its premise as “Asteroid. Earth. Boom”? Only that summer just got a whole lot more fun.
At this point, I would like to see a show based on the making of Star Trek: Discovery more than the actual Star Trek: Discovery. What is happening over there?
When summer comes, it brings with it lazy days in the sun and kids free of school. It also brings a slew of TV shows, perfect for watching when it’s too hot to leave the air conditioning (which is most of the time). Here’s the io9 guide to everything our beloved nerdy genres are putting up this year.
Star Trek: Discovery is delayed yet again. A beloved Next Generation actor was reportedly offered an insulting amount of money to appear on the show. It lost a showrunner with a well-deserved fan base of his own. And CBS has made poor marketing decision after poor marketing decision. So, how screwed is this show?…
If anyone is going to do justice to Roger C. Carmel’s most glorious Star Trek character, it’s going to be Rainn Wilson.
The U.S.S. Discovery has welcomed aboard its captain. CBS has just confirmed that Jason Isaacs will join its next Star Trek series—but don’t forget, for the first time ever in the franchise, the captain will not be the main star.
CBS and Paramount might not think it’s worth their time to make an HD version of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, but the folks behind the DS9 documentary are determined to present the show at its best. They’re working on getting the negatives for some of the show’s best scenes, so they can do the job themselves.
The past few months have been a whirlwind for members of the media as we ask ourselves difficult questions about an uncertain future. How badly did we get played by Russia? (Very.) What will Trump’s America look like? (Bad.) Will the Constitutional rights we enjoy survive the next four years? (...) Atlanta anchor Ben…
We’re never going to actually see this show, are we?
Star Trek: Discovery has finally found its Number One: Sonequa Martin-Green.
CBS All Access’ show has added three new castmembers—all reportedly playing Klingons—to Star Trek: Discovery. This tells us that instead of the traditional rotating cast of Klingons, we’re going to have an ongoing focus on specific members of the Klingon Empire.
Even though it had been said that Bryan Fuller would remain an executive producer for Star Trek: Discovery, Fuller is now clarifying that the only work he will do on season one of the show is what he’s already done.
With the 50th anniversary of Star Trek this year, there is time to ponder all the things about the show that have managed to last this long. Among them is the design of the U.S.S. Enterprise and why it worked well enough that a big disk with two nacelles is the default look for any Star Trek ship.
Although news of Yeoh’s casting first broke last week, CBS has now confirmed that she is among the first actors to join the next Star Trek TV show.
CBS can eat a bag of dicks. Come on, guys. Literally every other channel is making a ton of money off science fiction shows right now. Except you. Blaming the genre is just sad.
If the Doctor Strange movie coming out this week is half as ridiculous as this 1978 made-for-TV production was, it’s gonna be a good trip to the theaters. It’s well past time for Marvel to embrace the cheese.
