Star Trek: Discovery

DiscoveryAt an all-star San Diego Comic Con panel celebrating 50 years of Star Trek, Bryan Fuller, the showrunner of the upcoming series (announced in late 2015), reveals key details of the show: the series is titled Star Trek: Discovery, following the U.S.S. Discovery, NCC-1031, in a time period between the original series and the early 21st century prequel series, Star Trek: Enterprise. Test renders of the ship are shown, hearkening back to an abandoned Ralph McQuarrie redesign of the Enterprise from the never-made 1970s movie Star Trek: Planet Of The Titans. The series takes place in the “prime” timeline of all of the previous TV series, rather than the alternate timeline of the J.J. Abrams-produced movies since 2009.
