14 brilliant Easter Eggs in the first episodes of Star Trek: Discovery

5/6Risa

Most importantly, Discovery presents viewers with an nearly entirely new slate of characters, save for James Frain as Sarek, Spock's father and the adoptive parent (along with as-yet-unseen wife Amanda) of our heroine; writes them as fully rounded personages; and casts them with actors you can't help but like even when they're getting on your last nerve. The theme song, composed by Jeff Ruso, takes cues from Star Trek: The Original Series. It also remains to be seen whether "Discovery" will drive subscriptions to CBS All Access, where episodes will arrive weekly. Remarkable CEO Simon Powell said his company worked with CBS' assets of the ship to put together the visual effect.

The network is also promoting the show with an orginal live after-show, called "After Trek", which airs immediately after "Star Trek" streams.

The new series will not be a part of the ongoing movie series, and is set 10 years after the events of Star Trek; The Original Series. Sarek's skills as an ambassador lead to a role in the future Treaty of Alliance between the Federation and the Klingons.

Tonight the Turner household is going legit, celebrating Gadgets on the Go's tenth anniversary by watching Star Trek: Discovery on Netflix and happily cutting Channel Nine out of the picture.

Taco Bell plans to open 300+ stores without drive-thrus

Is Toys R Us Closing? Does Bankruptcy Mean Going Out of Business?
It is "business as usual" for Cumbria's Toys" R " Us store despite the retail giant filing for bankruptcy in the United States. Toys "R" Us is the second-largest toy seller in the U.S. behind Amazon , according to consulting firm Kloster Trading Corp.

It was, of course, all entirely misplaced controversy; Star Trek Discovery's diverse casting is a strength of the show. And we also frequently visit the upstart Klingon leader T'Kuvma (Chris Obi) as he attempts to unify the 24 Houses of the Empire with a unsafe plan of aggression.

Even with all that, Discovery is not a poorly executed show by any stretch.

"Trek" has been off the air for a while, and the strategy of reviving the TV franchise via CBS All Access is not without risk. And there is a certain amount of daring in making the first two episodes essentially a prequel to the rest of the series, which will see Burnham somehow finding her way onto the title ship and into the good graces of the yet-to-be-introduced Captain Lorca (Jason Isaacs). We use cookies to improve your browsing experience. Instead, it's hoping that the built-in "Star Trek" fanbase will be enough to build a solid audience for CBS All Access. Why does Discovery look more like it's come from the J.J. Abrams Trek films than the classic continuity? During the episodes, we see an incoming conflict between the Klingons and the humans.

Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon star Michelle Yeoh has been confirmed for the first thirteen episodes as Captain of the Discovery, Captain Georgiou.
