Star Trek is an iconic concept created by Gene Roddenberry. The series is now continuing as Star Trek launches a story that occurs 10 years before, Kirk, Spock, McCoy and Scotty. Will this series continue the Star Trek legacy by continuing to go where no seiries has gone before?
We hope the concept continues the Star Trek legacy. Star Trek is iconic, it transcends all generations, keeping its place in history as one of the greatest science fiction shows in the entertainment world.
Get ready for aliens, starships and all new space adventures. The next chapter in the Star Trek universe arrives on Sept. 24 with the premiere of "Star Trek: Discovery," a prequel CBS series that takes place about a decade before the five-year mission of the original 1960s "Star Trek." Here are all the important details we know so far. (Disclosure: CBS is CNET's parent company.)
Meet Michael BurnhamIn a Star Trek first, the lead role will be a first officer, not a captain. Sonequa Martin-Green of "The Walking Dead" takes on the character of Commander Michael Burnham. Showrunner Aaron Harberts revealed some of Burnham's backstory to Entertainment Weekly: The character is the first human to attend the Vulcan Science Academy. The series starts with her as the first officer of the USS Shenzhou, a plot point that appears in the show's trailer, but she ends up serving on the USS Discovery under Captain Gabriel Lorca, played by Jason Isaacs of "Harry Potter" franchise fame.
