"Star Trek: Discovery" Cast Discusses Rebooting the Franchise in 2017

Jason Isaacs, Sonequa Martin-Green and Michelle Yeoh – cast members of the upcoming Star Trek: Discovery series debuting on September 24 – are on the cover of the latest issue of Variety, out on newsstands now. Here’s what the cast had to say: Sonequa on being the first African-American Star Trek lead: “If you say [...] Jason Isaacs, Sonequa Martin-Green and Michelle Yeoh – cast members of the upcoming Star Trek: Discovery series debuting on September 24 – are on the cover of the latest issue of Variety, out on newsstands now. Here’s what the cast had to say: Sonequa on being the first African-American Star Trek lead: “If you say you love the legacy of Star Trek but you don’t love that, then you’ve missed it.” Sonequa on the new iteration of Star Trek: “Anyone doing a new iteration of Star Trek, you have to understand how deep it is, you have to understand how important it is. You have to understand how much of a pillar it is to our culture. I think you need that in order to really give it the weight it deserves, and I think that — I hope that more than anything — people got the sense of how serious we take this. When I first got started, I had my freak-out phase. I had my almost catatonic moment where I thought, ‘What is happening?’ And I knew very quickly that I couldn’t live there and that I couldn’t create there. I owed it to the story and I owed it to the legacy to get it together. And I had to focus myself in gratitude. I had to focus myself on the passion for the vision for the story that we’re doing.” Jason on the message the show sends in the Trump-Brexit era: “The world is complicated and horrible, and I don’t know how to explain to my children the insanity of the people who are in charge of it at the moment. I thought it was a good story to tell and something I would be happy to watch, about presenting a vision of the world that’s full of drama but also full of resolution and unity.” For more from the Star Trek: Discovery cast, head to Variety.com......»»

Producer: ‘Star Trek: Discovery’ Will Be True To TOS

Since its inception nearly 51 years ago, Star Trek has been one of the most prolific franchises in entertainment history, giving us 13 films and six TV series so far. Believe it or not, though, it's been 16 years since the premiere of a new TV Trek -- the longest the franchise has ever gone [...] Since its inception nearly 51 years ago, Star Trek has been one of the most prolific franchises in entertainment history, giving us 13 films and six TV series so far. Believe it or not, though, it’s been 16 years since the premiere of a new TV Trek — the longest the franchise has ever gone between premieres! That will be changing soon, though, as Star Trek: Discovery launches next month. Aside from what’s been seen in the trailers, very little is known about Discovery aside from the fact that it’s a prequel to the original 1966 series. We spoke to Oscar-winning writer Akiva Goldsman, who’s a producer and director on Discovery and worked for several seasons on J.J. Abrams‘ sci-fi series Fringe, to find out whether any aspects of Abrams‘ Star Trek reboot universe will be incorporated into the new series. (Click on the media bar below to hear Akiva Goldsman.) Star Trek: Discovery will be streaming this fall on the CBS All Access service, though non-subscribers will be able to get a look when the CBS television network broadcasts the series premiere Sunday, September 24 at 8:30/7:30c.
