A new Star Trek series will debut in January of 2017 and Paramount revealed the design of the latest starship that will grace our screens.
At this year’s Comic-Con, a “Star Trek 50th Anniversary” panel was held with cast members from various Star Trek television shows.
Rumours surfaced that it was to be at this panel that the cast for the new Star Trek show was to be revealed but unfortunately this was not to be.
The man at the helm of this new show is Bryan Fuller. He has worked on shows such as Hannibal, Pushing Daises and Heroes to name but a few. Bryan also revealed that the new show will flow like a novel, with no self-contained story episodes much like previous Star Trek series.
Then this early test footage was revealed which unveils the look of the new starship at the centre of the new television show, the USS 1031 Discovery. The ship is clearly inspired from concept artwork by Ralph McQuarrie for Star Trek Phase II, a series that was planned to show a new five-year mission for the original USS Enterprise and due to air in 1978 but was ultimately cancelled.
Star Trek: Discovery debuts on CBS All Access in January 2017 with the UK to receive episodes 24 hours later. Production starts in Toronto later this year.
