Revealed at Comic-Con 2016 by Executive Producer Bryan Fuller:
Get a sneak peek of the newest ship in the "Star Trek" universe. Star Trek: Discovery premieres January 2017 on the CBS Television Network with the premiere and all subsequent episodes available exclusively on CBS All Access.

So, the first NASA space shuttle took its name from a Star Trek starship, and now, 40 years later, a new Star Trek series takes its starship's name from a NASA space shuttle... seems appropriate.

And.... not only its name but also its number - OV-103!

CGI is a bit disappointing. I would have expected a more "realistic" rendering of the spacecraft given current state of the art.

According to producer Heather Kadin, in an interview with Trekmovie.com, the design for the U.S.S. Discovery is not final. That site also notes:
This is a simple promotional video, and the CGI quality is clearly rough, it should not be taken as an indication of how the final product will look.
The basic design of the Discovery is based Ralph McQuarrie's 1977 concepts for Star Trek Phase II.

The ship looks like the Enterprise had mated with a Klingon battlecruiser.

Mike, I agree. Man, what an ugly design.

As for the Phase II design, what the "finished" version they were going to use instead became the "retrofit" version of the Enterprise in "Star Trek: The Motion Picture" instead. This one, not used for good reason, was hideous.

As noted, the design is not final. With regards to McQuarrie's art, though, Bryan Fuller said at Comic Con (per TrekMovie.com):
[The influence of the McQuarrie art is] to a point where we legally can't comment on it until we figure out some things.
Further, executive producer Heather Kadin said the clip was quickly assembled for Comic Con:
I mean, we had three weeks to throw that together... The concepts of the ship are totally what we're going for and they'll be honed up until, I think, the day we deliver.

It should be pointed out that the McQuarrie Enterprise did appear twice in Star Trek, albeit in background roles — once, in Spacedock during the third movie, and the other, during DS9's Emissary, during the fight at Wolf 359.

'Star Trek: Discovery': Is the new starship named for NASA's space shuttle?

Four years ago, the Smithsonian swapped space shuttles at the National Air and Space Museum.

NASA's prototype orbiter Enterprise was rolled out and the space shuttle Discovery was rolled in.

Now "Star Trek," which inspired the earlier shuttle's name, has done the same.

Executive Producer Bryan Fuller gave a presentation about "Star Trek: Discovery" at the Television Critics Association Summer Tour in Los Angeles on Wednesday (Aug. 10), where he revealed additional details about the series.
Announced at the TCA today, the main character of Discovery will be a woman and — in an unprecedented move for the franchise — not the captain of the U.S.S. Discovery.

"We've seen six characters from the captain's point of view," Fuller noted. He added that putting a different character at the center will give the story a richer context.

...the new series will be set in the Prime Universe (as opposed to the Kelvin Timeline used in the J.J. Abrams-produced films) and will take place about 10 years before Captain Kirk's five-year mission.

In other words, the series will act as a bridge between the first two series in the timeline, about a century after "Star Trek: Enterprise" (which was a prequel) and a decade before "The Original Series." Fuller said they did this in part so they could utilize the iconography of the original ships and uniforms.

In terms of plot plots, he noted, "there's an incident, an event, in the history of Starfleet that has been talked about [in previous Star Trek series] but never fully explored." He didn't elaborate, but added that digging into the incident was "tantalizing."

When asked if the incident involved Section 31, he said no, "but that's not to say that might not have some marble through the meat of our season."

That last point, about Section 31 has been raised by some fans as a possible inspiration for the Discovery's registry number, 1031 (rather than OV-103).

Too late in time. 10 years before TOS is when Robert April, first captain of the NCC-1701 retires and becomes an ambassador, and when Chris Pike assumes the center seat.

CBS has announced that "Star Trek: Discovery" will now launch in May 2017.
The new premiere date is driven by the creative team's belief that this will give the show the appropriate time for delivery of the highest-quality, premium edition of the first new Star Trek television series in more than a decade.

"Bringing Star Trek back to television carries a responsibility and mission: to connect fans and newcomers alike to the series that has fed our imaginations since childhood," executive producers Alex Kurtzman and Bryan Fuller said in a joint statement. "We aim to dream big and deliver, and that means making sure the demands of physical and post-production for a show that takes place entirely in space, and the need to meet an air date, don't result in compromised quality. Before heading into production, we evaluated these realities with our partners at CBS and they agreed: Star Trek deserves the very best, and these extra few months will help us achieve a vision we can all be proud of."

Yep, the third world war was mentioned several times in the original series in the 60s, as well as multiple times during the "Next Generation" series.

"Star Trek, First Contact," which I think is the best of the Next Generation movies, takes place soon after WW3 took place. If memory serves, I think that movie takes place within what could very well be my lifetime as I won't yet be 100 years old by then. So I guess I have some very interesting (and dark) times to look forward to!

Bryan Fuller has stepped down from his role as showrunner on "Star Trek: Discovery."
"We are extremely happy with the creative direction of 'Star Trek: Discovery' and the strong foundation that Bryan Fuller has helped us create for the series," producers CBS Television Studios said in a statement. "Due to Bryan's other projects, he is no longer able to oversee the day-to-day of Star Trek, but he remains an executive producer, and will continue to map out the story arc for the entire season.

"Alex Kurtzman, co-creator and executive producer, along with Fuller's producing partners and longtime collaborators, Gretchen Berg and Aaron Harberts, will also continue to oversee the show with the existing writing and producing team. Bryan is a brilliant creative talent and passionate Star Trek fan, who has helped us chart an exciting course for the series. We are all committed to seeing this vision through and look forward to premiering 'Star Trek: Discovery' this coming May 2017."

The Hollywood Reporter, citing a source, also notes that the show's primary characters (still to be cast) will include an "openly gay actor as one of the male leads, a female admiral, a male Klingon captain, a male admiral, a male adviser and a British male doctor."

The actor choices for three main characters have been announced:
  • Doug Jones, known for Abe Sapien, the "gillman" in Hellboy and Fauno, the main character in Pan's Labrynth (also a great guy in person), will play Lt. Saru, a Starfleet officer and a member of an alien species new to the Star Trek universe;

  • Anthony Rapp, most recently he played Daniel in "Do You Take This Man," Bender in "A Beautiful Mind" and original member of the Broadway cast of "Rent", plays Lt. Stamets, Starfleet Science Officer, an astromycologist, fungus expert; Note: Rapp will be playing the gay character co-creator Bryan Fuller announced will be part of the show back in August.

  • Michelle Yeoh, "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon" and 007's "Tomorrow Never Dies" will play Cptn. Georgiou, of the Starship Shenzhou.

Wonder if they'll make the spaceship the USS Shen Zhou, (two words) much as they did the Miranda-class USS Tian An Men (three words instead of one).

Doubt they will change the name, because it would change the meaning in Chinese. As is known, Shenzhou is the current manned spacecraft launched by China, and is variously translated as "Divine Craft," "Divine Vessel of God" or "Magic Boat." The name is also related to the ancient name for China, "Divine State."

For what it's worth, splitting the name would create a mix-up with the name of a real person, Shen Zhou, a painter from the Ming Dynasty.

That would be true except that Chinese media, and sometimes even the China Manned Space Engineering Program Office (China's space agency), has used "Shen Zhou" (or "Shen-zhou") for their own English-language descriptions of the spacecraft.

CBS's release has the starship name as one word.

And patches from the Chinese show the spacecraft name as two words.

As for name mixup, Trek never specified if the USS Thomas Paine from "Conspiracy" was named after the patriot (which the Encyclopedia presumes, though it was never stated on-air) or the NASA administrator.

This problem is nothing new — the U.S. Navy has been reusing vessel names for decades, and had inconsistent naming rhetoric on last name vs. full name.

At least "the future" is consistent with the present.

The series' premiere has been delayed again. CBS said in a statement that it will be "flexible on a launch date."
We've said from the beginning it's more important to do this right than to do it fast. There is also added flexibility presenting on CBS All Access, which isn't beholden to seasonal premieres or launch windows.
In other news, James Frain has been cast as Sarek, Spock's father, and production on "Star Trek: Discovery" begins next week in Toronto.

Star Trek video
In 1964, Gene Roddenberry wrote three words on a blank page: Star Trek is..." Now, CBS All Access will begin that sentence once again. Production has begun on Star Trek: Discovery.

Additional cast members have been announced: Maulik Pancholy (30 Rock) will be Dr. Nambue, the chief medical officer of the Starship Shenzhou (the new "Bones" character?); Terry Serpico (Army Wives) will play Admiral Anderson, a high-ranking Starfleet officer; and Sam Vartholomeos (The Following) plays Ensign Connor, a junior officer in Starfleet Academy assigned to the Shenzhou.

Kenneth Mitchell, who portrayed Deke Slayton in ABC's "The Astronaut Wives Club," has joined the cast of "Star Trek: Discovery." From CBS:
Star Trek: Discovery — launching exclusively on CBS All Access — has added more Klingons and Starfleet officers to its ranks.

Shazad Latif (Penny Dreadful) will now star as Lieutenant Tyler, a Starfleet officer in the Federation. Rekha Sharma (Battlestar Galactica, The 100) will star as Commander Landry, the security officer of the Starship Discovery.

Kenneth Mitchell (Jericho, Astronaut Wives Club, Frequency) will star as Kol, a commanding officer in the Klingon Empire. Clare McConnell (Dim the Fluorescents) will star as Dennas, a leader in the Klingon Empire. Damon Runyan (Suits, Supernatural, Gangland Undercover) will star as Ujilli, a leader in the Klingon Empire.

The stars join previously announced cast members Sonequa Martin-Green, Jason Isaacs, Mary Wiseman, Terry Serpico, Maulik Pancholy, Sam Vartholomeos, James Frain, Doug Jones, Michelle Yeoh, Anthony Rapp, Chris Obi, Mary Chieffo, and Rainn Wilson.

The new series, which began production in January, is set about 10 years before Captain Kirk's five-year mission.

CBS release
Star Trek: Discovery To Launch Sunday, September 24 On CBS And CBS All Access

Special broadcast premiere to air on CBS at 8:30/7:30c.

On Monday, June 19, CBS All Access, the CBS digital subscription video on-demand and live streaming service, announced its second original drama series, the highly anticipated Star Trek: Discovery, will launch Sunday, Sept. 24 with a broadcast premiere that night on the CBS airing at 8:30/7:30c*.

The series premiere will also be available on-demand on CBS All Access. Plus, the second episode of the series will be available on the service that same night immediately following the broadcast premiere.

After premiere night, all-new episodes will be available on-demand weekly on Sundays, exclusively for CBS All Access subscribers in the United States.

The 15-episode season will be released in two chapters. The first eight episodes will run from Sunday, Sept. 24 through Sunday, Nov. 5. The season will then resume with the second chapter in January 2018.

Star Trek, one of the most iconic and influential global television franchises, returns to television 50 years after it first premiered with Star Trek: Discovery.

Star Trek: Discovery will follow the voyages of Starfleet on their missions to discover new worlds and new lifeforms, and one Starfleet officer who must learn that to truly understand all things alien, you must first understand yourself.

The series will feature a new ship, new characters, and new missions, while embracing the same ideology and hope for the future that inspired a generation of dreamers and doers.

More details emerge about its plot:
With the story revolving around a first officer rather than a captain, Harberts and Berg say this takes the action out of the bridge and lets viewers see different parts of the ship. As we already know, this series will also be the first to break one of creator Gene Roddenberry's cardinal rules about Star Trek, in that it's not supposed to be about conflict between members of Starfleet.

Even before then. The so-called cardinal rules were made and remade by whoever was in charge — whether it was Bob Justman, Berman and Piller, or Abrams, among others.

No space pirates? There's "Gambit." Starships should have two nacelles (or at least, an even pair)? Roddenberry broke that rule when he authorized the Franz Joseph Tech Manual with the Hermes and Saladin classes, Next Generation broke it during the Battle of Wolf 359 (Freedom-class), and Abrams broke it with the USS Kelvin.

And really, Roddenberry's cardinal rule was that sci-fi was about people, not tech. Yet he wrote Assignment: Earth.

Jonathan Frakes (Riker on "The Next Generation") will be directing an episode of "Discovery" during the first season.
Frakes is very experienced behind the camera, having helmed several episodes of TNG, Deep Space Nine, and Voyager, as well as the Trek films "First Contact" and "Insurrection." In addition, he's directed episodes of several non-Trek titles such as Leverage, Burn Notice, and NCIS: Los Angeles. Berg and Harberts previously worked with Frakes when he directed five episodes of CBS' Roswell.

Trekmovie.com has made the assertion that because the Shenzhou has the NCC number of 1227, "this would imply that the Shenzhou is a later ship to the U.S.S. Discovery, whose registry is NCC-1031."

Not necessarily. My theory is that NCC numbers are sequential among a class, not across or between classes. The Revere (595) and Columbia (621) as well as the Grissom (638) are all contemporary with the refit Enterprise from the first and third movies. As well, if the screencap is to believed, the NCC number of Reliant (1864) appeared in a wallchart in a classic Trek episode.

Anyone catch any references to real space history in the first two episodes?

Production designer John Eaves has been hinting on his Facebook page to a connection with the X-15 pilots, and in the second episode, one of the ships seen was the "Dana" (in addition to the Yeager, Earhart, Clark, Edison and Ride).

I looked, but I didn't see any representation of China's Shenzhou aboard the USS Shenzhou.

Though the first episode was free, I do not see myself buying CBS All Access just to see subsequent episodes. I will just wait however long to see them on DVD rental.
