Star Trek DiscoveryDit jaar viert de Star Trek-franchise zijn vijftigste verjaardag. Volgend jaren zullen we voor het eerst sinds 2005 een nieuwe serie zien. CBS Studios heeft nu aangekondigd dat Bryan Fuller‘s nieuwe Star Trek-serie de titel Star Trek Discovery krijgt. Daarnaast is ook het nieuwe schip onthuld, namelijk de Discovery.

Tegenover Collider onthulde Fuller eerder enkele interessante details over de serie. Zo blijkt het eerste seizoen dertien afleveringen zal bevatten en dat er een gevarieerde cast gevormd zal gaan worden. Er zouden mogelijk homoseksuele personages in voorkomen:

”Absolutely. I think the progressive audience that loves Star Trek will be happy that we’re continuing that tradition. And because we’re CBS All Access, we’re not subject to network broadcast standards and practices. It will likely affect us more in terms of what we can do graphically, but Star Trek’s not necessarily a universe where I want to hear a lot of profanity, either.”

Daarnaast ontkrachte Fuller een aantal geruchten over de serie:

“I mean, it’s funny. I’ve read that we’re [set] before “Next Generation,” after [“Star Trek VI: The] Undiscovered Country,” which is false. I’ve read that it’s an anthology show, which is not accurate. So it’s interesting to see those suggestions, and seeing the truth mixed in with them and going like, “Oh, they got that part right…” But it’s sort of on the truth-o-meter on PolitiFacts. It’s sort of like some truth, and a lot of like, “No — pants on fire! That’s not true. I think we will be seeing lots of crews in the story. One of the things that is exciting for me is that we are telling a “Star Trek” story in a modern way. We’re telling a 13-chapter story in this first season. It’s nice to be able to dig deep into things that would have been breezed passed if we were doing episodic and had to contain a story to an episode.”
