Bryan Fuller Says Diversity Is Integral To ‘Star Trek: Discovery’

Bryan Fuller isn't just a recent TV god, he also has a long Star Trek history having written for both Deep Space Nine and Voyager.

Bryan Fuller isn’t just a recent TV god, he also  has a long Star Trek history having written for both Deep Space Nine and Voyager. Which explains why fans were excitef when he was announced as showrunner for Discovery, only to drop out due to American Gods. Hope is not lost though, as Fuller still has say when it comes to the series.

In an interview with CBR, Fuller explained how his promise of a female captain and diverse cast would still be fufilled.

“We were very adamant early on about that cast, not just in terms of race but also in terms of gender,” Fuller explained. “Janeway (of “Star Trek: Voyager”) carved a nice path as did Majel Barrett (Nurse Christine Chapel in the original “Star Trek” series) in 1966, in the original pilot. So it was important for ethnic inclusivity and gender inclusivity (to be upheld in casting). I was very excited to cast Michelle Yeoh before I left. I was pushing very hard for Sonequa Martin-Green to be cast before I left. So I feel like there’s a lot of wonderful diversity represented in the show, and I’m excited to see how it turns out.”

Great news for Star Trek fans as well as those who have been demaning more diverse casting.

Set a decade before the events of the original series, “Star Trek: Discovery’s” 13-episode first season is expected to premiere in late summer or early fall on CBS before moving to the network’s streaming platform CBS All Access. “Star Trek: Discovery” will be available on Space in Canada and on Netflix in the rest of the world.

Top 10 Movie Trailers From This Summer That Will Fire You Up

Every year, an avalanche of trailers, teasers, TV spots flood the Internet, trying to grab the attention of busy and overstimulated audiences. It’s gotten to the point where now, trailers are such a commodity, that the trailers themselves have teasers. There’s a reason: trailers, when they’re good, can be an artform all their own.

I love trailers, being the guy who is always rushing his friends and family to the theater early “so we don’t miss the previews.” Every summer, I make a YouTube playlist of my favorites that acts as my own personal radio station because frankly, sometimes, I vibe more to how the trailer is cut than the music in it or, in bad cases, the movies themselves when I finally catch them on-screen. It’s gotten to the point that I imagine and dream in a trailer format, with music setting the pace for a smash-cut of scenes that I want to write or just enjoy the fantasy of.

If you love a good trailer like I love a good trailer, this list is for you. Here’s what I consider the top 10 trailers for the summer 2017. Click Next to start!
