CBS has started production on the highly anticipated series Star Trek: Discovery, and to celebrate the occasion, they've released a behind-the-scenes featurette that gives us a cool little glimpse at what they are developing. It includes video of the set, concept art, costumes, props, and more. It's actually kind of exciting!
“On March 11, 1964, Gene Roddenberry wrote three words on a blank page – 'Star Trek Is...'. What followed was half a century of stories, unbridled by the constraints of time or space, but always a reflection of what it means to be human.”
The road to bringing Star Trek: Discovery to life has begun. The story is set prior to the events of the original Star Trek series and will center around a new ship, new missions, and new characters that will inspire a new generation of fans.
The series will feature a fantastic cast that includes Sonequa Martin-Green, Doug Jones, Anthony Rapp, Michelle Yeoh, Chris Obi, Shazad Latif and Mary Chieffo. I've got high hopes for the series, and I hope CBS and their creative team can awesomely pull off what they are trying to accomplish.
