Star Trek: Discovery on CBS All Access

Here's the first trailer.

Edit: This trailer is region-locked to Canada. If you're in the US, see post #4.

The premiere will be on CBS (CTV in Canada) and subsequent episodes will air on CBS All Access (Space in Canada). In other countries, you will be able to watch it on Netflix.

The trailer appears to have been removed. It's always a good sign when the suits don't want you to know anything about a new show, right?

Yup. Got to go the source.


It's fortunate that this is Trek and it appears on the official Trek Youtube channel. CBS are basically doing the best they can to tie every snippet to cbs.com to gather as much revenue as possible.

I think those new look Klingons are actually wearing some kind of ceremonial masks, especially their "leader".

One of my first thoughts when I saw the trailer was "Not another alien race."

Too many aliens is major problem for Trek. Every other episode became like the Cantina of Dumb Prosthetics as the show went on with lazy rubber-faced filler wandering around in the background. Especially when they were used and forgotten a week later. It bugged me on Angel and Buffy too with the monsters.

I'd rather have a universe of smaller scope and fewer and more detailed races like Babylon 5 to work with. The (star)ship has long since sailed at Trek though.

This trailer also reminds me of Andromeda. It also reminds me of Crusade too. And neither in a good way.

In any case, I won't be watching it because of the studio's insane decision to make it exclusive to CBS All-Access. I'm not paying money for a service just to watch one show. Especially a service that still has commercials even if you pay for it.

Thanks, didn't know that. I don't care if every Captain is male. They just seem to be scared to death of having a female captain that has a sense of humor, or is anything less than Extremely Serious. Which is also un-Trek-like.

I think it is interesting that there are two captains being cast as regulars for two different ships. This suggests to me that the story won't entirely revolve around Discovery.

I'm mostly just afraid that CBS will be too cowardly to create a real Star Trek show, i.e. one that's about moral dilemmas and the implications of one's choices and not just about shooting lasers in space. Considering the success of the recent "Trek" movies, I doubt this will be a proper continuation of the TV canon, because that type of show doesn't have the broad appeal that CBS probably wants.

Having it on a pay service may give them a little more leeway since they won't have to worry about ratings alone to support it, but of course they will want enough appeal to keep people subscribing to All Access.

I'm cautiously optimistic at this point, and I'll subscribe to check it out. Delivering it via a streaming platform would give them an opportunity to release it in 4K HDR to grab the AV junkie audience, which I'm guessing has significant overlap with Star Trek fandom, but I haven't heard whether or not that's in the cards.

CBS is crazy making this an 'All Access' exclusive...smart $$ says it will be moved to the 'regular' CBS channel before too long...I'm not paying extra $$ for a broadcast network and I'm sure most other people feel the same which will force CBS's hand...I know they are trying to add value by making this available only as a premium service but it will backfire

I assume that they're going to release an episode on each at a time over the weeks to keep milking the subscription payments instead of all at once.

This is almost more Trek-like than Discovery. Not a huge fan of Seth MacFarlane (in the flesh) but Adrianne Palicki FTW.

Yeah, I have pretty much no enthusiasm for this show anymore. The initial idea of new Trek was cool... then they unveiled CBS All-Access... then they kept delaying the show (remember this was originally going to launch back in January)... and now we get a fairly underwhelming trailer. I wasn't going to pay to watch this on CBS All-Access anyway... but now I know I will not feel bad about missing it either!

It's not available on Netflix in the US though it is in just about every other country around the world.

Trek doesn't command broadcast network dollars, most people don't watch Sci-Fi period and never will.
