Unbelievably, it has been twelve years since there has been a series of Star Trek on the small screen. Following the immense success of the first season of Star Trek: The Next Generation which first aired in 1987, Gene Roddenberry's iconic science fiction phenomenon dominated the small screen for eighteen years, across four serials - The Next Generation, Deep Space Nine, Voyager, and Enterprise.

Following the commercial success of the J J Abrams directed and produced Star Trek reboot movies Starfleet is set to return to the small screen once again with the new Netflix series Star Trek: Discovery, with Hannibal's Bryan Fuller and the director of the forthcoming The Mummy Alex Kurtzman as the series showrunners.

Discovery will star The Walking Dead actress Sonequa Martin-Green as Michael Burnham, the part human and part Vulcan First Officer of the Starfleet vessel the USS Discovery. Set ten years before Kirk and Spock commanded the iconic USS Enterprise, the series, which will span fifteen episodes is set to show the rising tensions between the United Federation of Planets and the Klingon Empire.

Although the show is reported not to follow the alternate timeline of the recent movies, it does feature the recent movie's designs for the notorious Klingons.

4 Fan responses to Watch Star Trek Discovery's first trailer!

It looks incredible. The aesthetic changes will drive some fans nuts, but they really need to let it go. It looks fantastic.

I’ll start off by saying I’m a huge Star Trek fan, going back to the original series.

For sheer story telling, the best ST has always been, by far, on the small screen. The best episodes were character driven stories and ST has always been about friendship, loyalty, and the sacrifices made for said friendships. There were so many “small” stories that were fantastic, but that wouldn't necessarily make a good theatrical film. Most of the movies were relegated to some disaster or villain of the week, with varying degrees of quality and success.

I’m happy that ST is coming back to television. Quite honestly, that’s the best medium for it. The trailer looks like they put some money into it. It looks great. Having said that, I’m not crazy about the whole prequel storyline. It’s been done with Enterprise, as well as “going back” in the Abrams Trekverse (I could go on a whole other rant there). I want to see what’s happening after Next Gen, DS9, Voyager, etc. Haven’t we already seen the Human/Vulcan Starfleet officer, and the alienation they feel being from two worlds and yet not quite fitting into either?

There’s so much more they could do with this. I’ll definitely check out the pilot, but unfortunately, I’m not subscribing to CBS All Access to see the rest.

Let’s boldly go where no man, where no one, has gone before.
