I'm just glad it will be on Netflix in the UK.

Re: Star Trek: Discovery (2017)

I agree, it looks like a cack-handed attempt to use a big brand to push a pay-tv service. There will be plenty of hard core fans who will buy in to it but whether there will be enough to recover their production costs and make a profit remains to be seen.

Re: Star Trek: Discovery (2017)

I've seen that mentioned a few times.

I am happy with that as a full 22 epsiode season as per all previous season meant there were many 'filler' episodes.

Hopefully it will mean this means that having less episodes means better episodes.

A lot of Netflix shows have similar season lengths.

Re: Star Trek: Discovery (2017)

New uniforms will look pretty much like they did in 'The Cage'

Designed by Gucci as well.

Re: Star Trek: Discovery (2017)

Very disappointing, I was looking forward to it so much. Unless it is all about summer ratings I wonder what has happened that they have had to bang it back by 5 months on such short notice. They have hyped it up so much over the last couple of months everyone is looking forward to it now.

Unlikely but maybe it's just not right and they need time to improve it. Nowadays these types of shows rarely succeed.

Re: Star Trek: Discovery (2017)

I just hope the delay includes getting the best special effects possible (alongside all the other things they need to get right)

Having a show where they look worse than the previous shows would be a bit of problem

Re: Star Trek: Discovery (2017)

I'd say that is a more realistic date.

Its September and they haven't even announced cast or started production on a show that was due to start in January.

For a show with lots of post production and effects work I don't see January being achievable in terms of making the show look good and of a good standard.

Pretty much the perfect answer. There was no way this was making a January release without being horribly rushed and ultimately becoming a flop. CBS can then position themselves to make CBS access more worthwhile with content vs monetary value before then which will only decrease the chance of it failing in the US.

Filming is due to start this month in Toronto so hopefully there will be a cast announcement soon.

"Star Trek TV show filming locations: Where's it shooting?

Filming will begin in Toronto in September 2016 to be specific, in Pinewood Toronto Studios, taking advantage of the facility's 46,500-square-foot mega-stage for some truly epic adventures."

Re: Star Trek: Discovery (2017)

Quote:
Star Trek: Discovery will now launch in May, 2017, it was announced this afternoon by CBS All Access. 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.

”Star Trek: Discovery is coming to CBS All Access in May, 2017, following the premiere on the CBS Television Network, and will be distributed concurrently on Netflix in 188 countries and through Bell Media in Canada.
