Star Trek: Discovery Series

Star Trek: Discovery is an upcoming American television series created by Bryan Fuller and Alex Kurtzman for CBS All Access. It is the first series produced specifically for that service, and the first Star Trek series since Star Trek: Enterprise concluded in 2005. Set 10 years before the events of the original Star Trek series, separate from the timeline of the concurrent feature films, Discovery explores a previously mentioned event from the history of Star Trek while following the crew of the USS Discovery. Fuller, Gretchen J. Berg, and Aaron Harberts serve as showrunners on the series.

The new series was announced in November 2015, with Fuller joining the next February. In addition to Fuller and Kurtzman, who wrote for previous Star Trek series and films, respectively, the crew includes previous Star Trek creative Nicholas Meyer as consulting producer, and Star Trek-creator Gene Roddenberry's son Rod as executive producer. The production put emphasis on carrying on the legacy of the previous series, including making efforts to feature a diverse cast, and taking inspiration from original designs by Ralph McQuarrie.
