‘Star Trek: Discovery’ Officially Starts Production in New Teaser
It’s taken a long, winding road to get there, but Star Trek: Discovery is finally ready to leave spacedock. See for yourself in the first official production teaser, including glimpses of new aliens, uniforms, ships and more!
CBS released a nostalgic retrospective teaser for the Star Trek franchise as a whole, culminating in a rapid-fire look at Discovery beginning production. We don’t see any of the new characters up close, but check out a smattering of new images, including an updated U.S.S. Discovery:
Previously, Star Trek: Discovery confirmed among the cast Sonequa Martin-Green as our Lt. Commander lead, James Frain as Spock’s father Sarek, Doug Jones as an alien science officer, Adam Rapp as the TV franchise’s first openly-gay character and Michelle Yeoh as Captain of a different ship, along with several Klingon roles. Ex-showrunner Bryan Fuller also recently stepped up to clarify his limited involvement in the project going forward.
Shooting in Toronto, the new 13-episode Star Trek: Discovery is officially said to take place 10 years before Kirk’s original Enterprise mission, as well to be “heavily serialized,” akin to a novel. The new series will also explore the fallout of an event referenced, but never seen in the original series.
Star Trek: Discovery is tentatively scheduled for May, but what do we make of the new images?
