“Star Trek” is finally coming back to a network television service. The new iteration of the acclaimed science fiction series, called “Star Trek Discovery,” will debut on the streaming service CBS All Access on Sunday (Sept. 24) at 8:30 p.m. EDT. This first episode will also air on the CBS TV channel.
However, if you enjoy the first episode, you will not be able to watch the rest of the series on network television. You’ll need to subscribe to its streaming service, CBS All Access, which will provide access to all of Star Trek: Discovery. Luckily, the second episode of Discovery will be available on the service after the broadcast premiere. And every following Sunday, new episodes will premiere on-demand after 8:30 PM ET/5:30 PM PT for All Access subscribers in the United States.
The show is set 10 years before the events of “The Original Series,” or TOS (which ran between 1966 and 1968) and follows the crew of the USS Discovery. The crew “discovers new worlds and life-forms as one Starfleet officer learns to understand all things alien,” according to the show’s IMDB page.

^^^ Thank you … I rarely watch TV except on weekends (for sports primarily) … but I have watched a couple of episodes of Salvation & Orville (and like the themes/settings for both shows)… being more of a streamer I like visiting the network site & watching some of these as my schedule permits.25 Sep '17 at 1:45 am #11981

I actually stopped watching Star Trek: Discovery on a weekly basis
the show was getting out of hand, nothing like any of the other …to focused on being “political correct”
every episode they had someone violate the United Federation of Planets charter13 Apr '18 at 3:12 pm #16152
HOLY BIRDS OF PREY :woohoo: Rudolph & I truly enjoyed this “PHASE 2” movie (only an hour) … it takes a few minutes to adapt to new characters replacing the 1966 crew — but once you do so, I though the movie & action were well done … I’m going for more in series later — and mainly wanted to share this one is a “keeper” as Sulu old & young character does some great acting 8)16 Apr '18 at 7:30 pm #16198
More from the “Star Trek Continues” and “New Voyages” series … both were more “internet only” and use same characters of 1960s (so you have to think of enterprise crew in the younger years and that helped me transition to like both series .. I think the “Continues” series is newest & they are in HD video & HQ audio … maybe not as good as original – but price is right for some entertainment later tonight for the hound & me 🙂16 Apr '18 at 8:43 pm #16199
[color=teal][b]WOW – creating a few mp4’s to view later … No wonder I liked the Sulu episode above which I easily put in my top 10 of all versions .. Star Trek II is my fav movie of all time … and Trouble with Tribbles is fav from TV series
GOOGLE IT … and indeed I found nice write-ups on these two series … we cut kord on the TV and sports events are not available — but I love SCI-FI far more anyway as my sports teams let me down too often 😉 I still like original & 2nd GEN the best – but beggars can’t be choosers when your only option is local channels
1. Star Trek Continues
Star Trek Continues is an American fan-created web series set in the Star Trek universe. Produced by the non-profit charity Trek Continues, Inc. and Dracogen, and initially co-produced by Far From Home LLC and Farragut Films, the series consists of eleven episodes released between 2013 and 2017. The series is an unofficial direct continuation of Star Trek: The Original Series, and emulates its visual and storytelling features to achieve the same look and feel. Those who made the show have said in interviews that the intent was to finish the original five year mission of the show, and this is borne out in the plot lines of the final two episodes.
2. Star Trek New Voyages
Star Trek: New Voyages, known from 2008 until 2015 as Star Trek: Phase II, was a fan-created science fiction webseries set in the fictional Star Trek universe. The series was designed as a continuation of the original Star Trek (aka ST:TOS or just TOS), beginning in the fifth and final year of the starship Enterprise’s “five-year mission.” The first episode was released in January 2004, with new episodes being released at a rate of about one per year. Production on new episodes quietly halted in early 2016, with creator/producer James Cawley stating in July that he “quit making fan films months ago”. The sets constructed for New Voyages were licensed as a ‘Studio Set Tour’ beginning in July 2016.
it has attracted the talents of a number of professional writers and actors associated with official Star Trek productions, including George Takei reprising his role as Sulu in “World Enough and Time”, and Walter Koenig as Chekov in “To Serve All My Days”. Eugene Roddenberry Jr., the son of Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry, served as consulting producer. The show’s best-known episode “World Enough and Time” was nominated for the Hugo Award for Best Dramatic Presentation, Short Form in 2008,[/b][/color]16 Apr '18 at 8:59 pm #16200
