Star Trek: Discovery is set to Launch at full warp speed towards the end of the year, as CBS sets the air date to September 25th on Netflix in Australia and worldwide (Excluding the U.S. and Canada where it will air on CBS) only a day after its U.S. air date.
Excellent news, not only for Star Trek fans but also for the future of TV content, setting a new benchmark in collaboration between a major US TV network and Netflix, to reduce download piracy internationally.
Star Trek: Discovery will be a 15 Episode season released in two chapters so there is a small break in-between as the first eight episodes will end on November 6th and return in January of 2018 for the final seven.
We previously published an article on Star Trek: Discovery when we were shown a first glimpse a few months ago and now we know more information, it really is looking good despite all the problems it seems to have had in production. Only time will tell, but can the bizarre mix of the Kelvin Universe meld well enough into the original series that they are trying to bridge a gap between?
I, for one, cannot wait. I really hope that after the slightly below average Star Trek: Enterprise, CBS can pick up the pieces and give us a show that really brings the magic back for Star Trek on TV.
