Over the last weekend CBS revealed a new trailer of their new Star Trek series, Discovery. In fact over the last week there have been little snippets released here and there helping to raise the profile of the much slated new series.
Yep, I said much slated, unfortunately like I the recent Doctor Who conflict following the revelation that the next Doctor was going to be female. The latest series to bear the Star Trek name has come under fire pretty much since it was announced way back in 2015, granted their have been delays and other problems but if this were any other series being launched we wouldn’t have heard about it until the first teaser trailer aired however because of the such a long lead up time and then the departure of the shows Co-Creator Bryan Fuller left, the so called fans have been slating the yet to air show. Their complaints range from the fact that in the US it will air on CBS All Access, a subscription service like Netflix who will air it worldwide. To the fact that the ships don’t look like the original, the Klingons aren’t right etc etc…
It has gone on and on for months, however I am really excited about this new series and I can’t wait until September when it finally, after two years of waiting gets to premier around the world. I have been a Star Trek fan for pretty much all my life and I love each previous series for their own differences from each other and I know, going on who has been working to create this, it will have the same values at its core as the previous incarnations.
I will leave you with the trailer that came out this weekend to enjoy.
