The newest CBS series Star Trek: Discovery is set to boldly go where no man has gone before this fall on the network with a darker, grittier take on the bright and shiny franchise.
For Star Trek: Discovery, CBS will dial back the clock as the series will be set prior to the events of Star Trek: The Original Series which means there will likely be a plethora of connections from one series to another, one of those connections we now know will be the series’ theme.
CBS has released a sneak peek for the series, featuring composer Jeff Russo who leads the orchestra through the theme, which starts off very much like the original series theme. You can check out the clip below:
Star Trek: Discovery is produced by CBS Television Studios in association with Secret Hideout, Living Dead Guy Productions and Roddenberry Entertainment with Alex Kurtzman, Bryan Fuller, Heather Kadin, Gretchen J. Berg, Aaron Harberts, Akiva Goldsman, Rod Roddenberry and Trevor Roth serving as executive producers.
The series stars Sonequa Martin-Green as First Officer Michael Burnham, Jason Isaacs as Captain Lorca of the USS Discovery, James Frain as Spock’s father, Sarek, Doug Jones as a Starfleet Science Officer and a member of a new alien species, Saru, Anthony Rapp the astrobiologist, fungus expert, and Starfleet Science Officer, Stamets, Rekha Sharma as Commander Landry, security officer of the Starship Discovery, Terry Serpico as Anderson, Maulik Pancholy as Nambue, Chris Obi as T’Kuvma, Shazad Latif as Lieutenant Tyler, Mary Chieffo as L’Rell, Mary Wiseman as Tilly, Rainn Wilson as Harry Mudd, Clare McConnell as Dennas, Damon Runyan as Ujilli, Kenneth Mitchell as Kol as well as Clare McConnell and Damon Runyan as Dennas and Ujilli, leaders in the Klingon Empire. Here’s the official synopsis:
STAR TREK: DISCOVERY will follow the voyages of Starfleet on their missions to discover new worlds and new life forms, and one Starfleet officer who must learn that to truly understand all things alien, you must first understand yourself.
Star Trek: Discovery premieres Sunday, September 24 at 8:30 p.m ET/PT on CBS with the following fourteen episodes coming exclusively on the CBS All Access streaming service weekly. The season is set to be released in two halves with the first eight episodes running through November 5, followed by the second half picking up in January 2018. Are you excited?
