Producer Explains Why Star Trek: Discovery Got Delayed

Star Trek: Discovery has had some problems ever since production on the TV series started. At first, the show was announced to release in 2016 just in time for the 50th Anniversary of the franchise but that didn’t happen. It also went from May 2017 to this Fall for its release.

So what everyone is asking is why where there so many delays to bring Star Trek back to television? Well, producer and co-creator Alex Kurtzman spoke with Collider to shed some light on the reasoning behind postponing Star Trek: Discovery’s release on CBS All Access.

We postponed our schedule because the truth is we did not want to put out something that was subpar, and as the vision expanded we started feeling like we weren’t gonna be able to deliver the scope and the scale that was on the page. And CBS was extremely supportive in saying, ‘Okay you know what, this is streaming, it’s not like we have to beat out right away, let’s do the best version of this, Trek is too important for all of us.

At least we know that the team behind the show is looking to make Star Trek’s return to the small screen as perfect as possible. If the show was rushed to go into release, we may not have gotten a good quality series that would’ve captured fans’ imaginations the same way as the previous series. Based on the trailer we’ve seen already, it looks like they are going in the right direction. What do you guys think?

  • Well it’s good to know they were delayed for the right reasons. Rushing a production is a recipe for disaster

  • What does “Beat out right away” even mean? Also, the last sentence in your first paragraph ends with “for it’s release” but you shouldn’t use an apostrophe there. It should be “for its release.” Proof read, Mufsin. You got a freakin’ Bachelor’s in Journalism from Long Island U for Christ’s sake.
