Leading up to the Star Trek 50th Anniversary Panel at San Diego Comic-Con today, one of the biggest questions on everyones’ minds was whether or not there would be any new details revealed about the upcoming Star Trek TV series headed for CBS All Access next year, with Bryan Fuller acting as showrunner.
Luckily, we finally have some real details about the brand new series as well, and it looks like Fuller is living up to his promise in delivering a Star Trek TV series reminiscent of what came before, but also unlike anything else we’ve seen from the property yet.
First, it has been revealed that the new series will be titled Star Trek Discovery, named after the show’s title ship, the U.S.S. Discovery, which we got our very first look at in the new teaser that you can check out below:

The new series, which is set to premiere sometime in 2017 on the CBS streaming service, will follow a completely new set of characters as they journey out into the unknown to find new planets and civilizations, while continuing to explore and touch on the themes and ideals that have been present in the property ever since Gene Roddenberry first created it. With a talented writer and self-professed Trekkie like Fuller leading the new series as well, Star Trek Discovery may just end up being the Trek tv show that fans have been asking for.
