Star Trek: Discovery Cast

Over 50 years ago, the world was first introduced to what would quickly become a cultural phenomenon. Star Trek was a television series that inspired developments in science and technology, broke social barriers, and transported viewers around the globe to new adventures and uncharted frontiers. This fall, Star Trek: Discovery follows the voyages of Starfleet on their missions to discover new worlds and new life forms, while learning that to truly understand all things alien, you must first understand yourself. Join cast members Sonequa Martin-Green, Jason Isaacs, Doug Jones, Shazad Latif, Mary Wiseman, Anthony Rapp and James Frain, alongside executive producers Alex Kurtzman, Gretchen J. Berg, Heather KadinAaron Harberts and Akiva Goldsman for a conversation and introduction to Discovery.

The panel will be moderated by series guest star Rainn Wilson, who is set to play Harry Mudd, the charismatic conman and intergalactic criminal first introduced in Star Trek: The Original Series.

This Blerd is so excited that we have a premier date and details on how to watch the Star Trek Series. I love Star Trek and watched the original series faithfully as a child. I grew up with the prime directive so am #TeamStarTrek

 

I’m hoping that I will be able to interview the cast at the upcoming SDCC (pray for me my geeklings!) but no matter what I will be subscribing to CBS Access this fall to binge on the first series led by a woman of color! I’m tuning in for Sonequa Martin and Michelle Yeoh since i’m all for WOCGP (Women of Color Girl Power) but can’t resist Doug Jones (not that I can recognize him .. guffaw).

 

The new series is paying homage to the original Gene Roddenberry prime directive but is pushing the envelope with some drama amongst the Star Fleet staff. Not that I can blame them being on a ship with the same people has to have some drama! You know people are dating, breaking up, gossiping and just not liking all of their co-workers! it’s human and non human nature! I’m hoping that someone will be a little TOO ambitious and cause some trouble between our captain and her #2!

If you are in the USA CBS is giving a taste with the first episode being broadcast on CBS but after that you have to pay a fee to watch it on CBS All Access. This doesn’t bother me since I have streaming cable and don’t usually have access to CBS anyway. I like a few shows on CBS but not enough to subscribe (still miss Brain Dead such a fun show but not a good match for CBS audience). Hopefully this will not be the only series worthy to watch exclusively on the platform and that they will have a good companion series to keep fans tuning in.

See below for how to see the series and leave a comment on if you plan to subscribe to CBS Access to watch Star Trek: Discovery.
