Star Trek: Discovery‘s plot synopsis: “STAR TREK: DISCOVERY will follow the voyages of Starfleet on their missions to discover new worlds and new lifeforms, and one Starfleet officer who must learn that to truly understand all things alien, you must first understand yourself.”

This new Star Trek series looks better than I thought it would look. I like how Vulcans are included in this trailer (and the show) but was a Vulcan lead and sub-characters really necessary, especially after Star Trek: Enterprise? There are plenty of other species in the universe. One or more of them could have been one of the focal points in this new series besides the Vulcans.

Since the Vulcans assisted humanity with its space program after making first contact, their involvement in the plot of this series was unavoidable (I guess).

I was surprised that Sonequa Martin-Green has such a prominent role in the series. I read about her casting but I had no idea how integral Michael Burnham (Sonequa Martin-Green) was to the plot of Star Trek: Discovery. It was a good surprise. Martin-Green is a great actress and will be missed on The Walking Dead.

In Star Trek: Enterprise, Burnham is a human that was raised by Vulcans and is referred to as ‘Number One,’ like Commander William Riker on Star Trek: The Next Generation.

From the official press for Star Trek: Discovery:

Star Trek, one of the most iconic and influential global television franchises, returns to television 50 years after it first premiered with STAR TREK: DISCOVERY. The series will feature a new ship, new characters and new missions, while embracing the same ideology and hope for the future that inspired a generation of dreamers and doers. The series will premiere on the CBS Television Network with all subsequent episodes available on CBS All Access, the Network’s digital subscription video on demand and live streaming service, and will be distributed concurrently by CBS Studios International on Netflix in 188 countries and in Canada on Bell Media’s Space channel and OTT service CraveTV.

STAR TREK: DISCOVERY is produced by CBS Television Studios in association with Alex Kurtzman’s Secret Hideout, Bryan Fuller’s Living Dead Guy Productions and Roddenberry Entertainment. Alex Kurtzman, Bryan Fuller, Heather Kadin, Gretchen J. Berg & Aaron Harberts, Akiva Goldsman, Rod Roddenberry and Trevor Roth serve as executive producers.
