Star Trek: Discovery Begins Filming On January 24, 2017
Star Trek Beyond movie news, trailers and cast

Star Trek Beyond July 22nd, 2016

This is it people. The dawn of a new era is almost upon us, as Star Trek: Discovery will begin filming on January 24, 2017. This was stated on the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees Toronto-based union’s website. Thanks to Trek Movie.com for the heads up.

Star Trek: Discovery will take place around a decade before the events of the original 1966 series, and will follow the exploits of the crew of the USS Discovery.

Sonequa Martin-Green will star as Rainsford, the ship's lieutenant commander, whilst Anthony Rapp will play her science officer, Stamets. Frequent Guillermo del Toro collaborator Doug Jones is also set to star as a member of a new alien species serving under Rainsford's command.

Rounding off the supporting cast are Michelle Yeoh as the Captain of the USS Shenzhou, a ship that will play a secondary role in the series, and Shazad Latif, Chris Obi and Mary Chieffo as a trio of Klingons.

Writers for the show include Bryan Fuller, Alex Kurtzman, Jesse Alexander and Kristen Beyer, with Vincenzo Natali and David Semel both onboard as directors.

After cameras begin rolling this month, we don't have long to wait for Discovery to hit our screens, as it's set to debut in May of this year. We can also look forward to some spectacular production values too, as each episode will reportedly cost between $6–7 million. It's one of Paramount's biggest franchises, so it makes sense that they'd want to go all out.
