Star Trek Discovery To Feature Female Lead

CBS’ Star Trek Discovery risked being snowed under the vast array of trailers coming out of San Diego Comic-Con. But during this week’s Television Critics Association conference, the network’s serialized offshoot was given its time in the sun.

With production expected to get underway soon, despite the fact CBS has remained mum on casting, Star Trek veteran Bryan Fuller confirmed Discovery will follow a female lead and that the network has currently ordered a total of 13 episodes with the possibility of an extension.

He said “Since we are doing this series in 2016, and all the other series have been produced in a timeline that isn’t as sophisticated as we are now in terms of what we can do production-wise, we’re going to be reestablishing an entire look for the series. Not only for the series, but for what we want to accomplish for Star Trek beyond the series. So we have to start early on with a touch point where people can understand and have access into it, show them how we’re reimagining Star Trek and then hold their hand as we pull them hopefully into iterations a lot of different timelines beyond what we have seen.”

CBS is yet to nail down a premiere date for Star Trek Discovery, but the series is expected to bow at some point in January.
