Briefly: After numerous delays and a sweet, sweet first look trailer during New York’s UpFronts week, we finally know just when we’ll be able to catch the first episode of Star Trek: Discovery.
CBS has revealed that the series will premiere on Sunday, Sept. 24 at 8:30 p.m., and that the second episode will premiere that very same night on CBS’ own All Access service.
Plot details for the series are still being kept under wraps, but we do know that the series begins around ten years before we met Kirk and friends, and that the events of a previously mentioned, but not explored story line in the Star Trek franchise will be the focus of this new adventure.
As someone who has never watched a Star Trek television series (yeah, it’s just been Chris Pine and pals for me), I’m beyond excited to get a more substantial taste of the universe that everyone has been in love with for the past several decades.
You can take a look at the first look trailer for the series below, and be sure to let us know if you’re looking forward to discovering this one!
