    Default Star Trek: Discovery (January 2017: CBS All Access) [MAKE IT SO!!]

    "New characters to the Star Trek universe seek new worlds and civilizations, while exploring the franchise's signature contemporary themes"

    Discovery: first flight


    The design of the USS Discovery is based on an unused Ralph McQuarrie design for the USS Enterprise from the unproduced film Star Trek: Planet of the Titans.

    The McQuarrie Enterprise for the unproduced Star Trek Phase II, which made it to casting and makeup before TOS was cancelled. Phase II would have been a second 5 year mission some years after the first.



    The full-blooded Vulcan prodigy Xon from Phase II.

    Star Trek: Discovery mini episodes arrive this fall

    Star Trek: Discovery won't be ready for streaming until early 2019, but executive producer and co-creator Alex Kurtzman revealed four "Short Treks" will arrive throughout the fall, as 10 - 15 minute standalone episodes. Rainn Wilson's character Harry Mudd will be featured in one, Aldis Hodge as Craft in another, while the other two follow characters Saru and Tilly. Naturally CBS also dropped off a trailer for season two,

    I would be more excited if this wasn't going to be a CBS All Access exclusive. I'm starting to get upset at streaming exclusiveness.

    Maintaining a streaming service isn't cheap and the networks are feeling a huge pinch from Netflix etc. so I wouldn't be surprised to see a major consolidation down the road.

    The irony is that Netflix shows ST Discovery outside the US..
