'Star Trek: Discovery'
CBS, Fall 2017
Let's boldly (and happily) go where we've gone many, many times before! Set roughly 10 years before the final-frontier journeys of the original series, this latest addition to the unstoppable sci-fi franchise will focus on "a never-depicted event in Star Trek history" that fans will supposedly go nuts over; though creator Bryan Fuller (Hannibal) handed over the showrunning reigns late last year, CBS has gone out of its way to say that his original vision for the show has remained intact. A cast that includes The Walking Dead's Sonequa Martin-Green, Michelle Yeoh, fantasy-movie staple Doug Jones and Anthony Rapp will shuttle the USS Discovery past new worlds, new alien races and new adventures that, fingers crossed, will involve the Kobayashi Maru.
