The New Star Trek Series Now Has A Title

Shiny logo.

Remember how a new Star Trek series was announced last November? Well, we finally got a title for said series, and that title is Star Trek: Discovery.

Quite interestingly, the series is not set in the alternate universe of the reboot films, but rather in the “prime” universe (i.e., the one that all the other series take place in). It follows a brand new ship (the USS Discovery) with a brand new crew. According to the article above, “[t]he new series will not be episodic, but will instead tell stories like a novel chapter by chapter.”

They also released a short teaser, which gives us the first glimpse of the new ship (though, as also noted in the linked article, this isn’t necessarily the final design).

I am ridiculously excited for this. As I may have mentioned before, Star Trek was a huge part of my childhood. Seriously, the last time I got together with my sisters, we spent a not inconsiderable amount of time watching the movies. So, upon hearing more news about this series, I basically had this reaction:

OH MY GOD

Star Trek: DIscovery (being abbreviated as DSC, basically to avoid obvious STD jokes) is set to air January 2017. The premiere is going to air on CBS, after which it will exclusively stream on their All Access service.

New Star Trek Series Coming in 2017

In news that has recently made me squeal at a pitch only audible to dolphins, there is going to be a new Star Trek series starting January of 2017. You have no idea how excited I am about this. Apparently, it’s going to feature an all new cast and stories, so it doesn’t sound like it’ll be a reboot or a remake.

I am extremely excited about this. Star Trek is a major part of both my and my sisters’ childhoods. Our mom used to watch the original series back when it originally aired, so we used to watch Next Generation, Deep Space Nine, and Voyager together back when they aired. I saw First Contact (my second favorite of the Trek movies) in the theater, and the soundtrack to that movie was one of the first CDs I’ve ever owned. So,yes, very excited about this.

This is definitely something that I will be following, and will be providing updates on this blog as they become available. In the meantime, I think I’ll go watch me some original series episodes. To Netflix!
