Star Trek: Discovery is a new upcoming American television series created by Bryan Fuller and Alex Kurtzman.
It is the first series developed specifically for CBS All Access and the first series will have 12 episodes. Set roughly a decade before the events of The Original Star Trek Series (TOS), separate from the timeline of the new Star Trek Movies.
Discovery will explore a previously mentioned event from the history of Star Trek while following the crew of U.S.S. Discovery NCC-1031, what makes this series different to the rest is that it will not be focusing on the captain of the ship it would instead focus on the Lieutenant Commander.
Bryan Fuller has now left the team and Kurtzman will now oversee the show alongside Gretchen Berg & Aaron Harberts – veterans of Reign and Revenge – plus fellow execs Heather Kadin (late of CBS’s Limitless)and Trevor Roth – (producer of 2010 fan-doc Trek Nation).
Release Date: Sept 2017 ? (production started around Jan 23rd 2017)
