Title of new ‘Trek’ series revealed: ‘Star Trek Discovery’


SAN DIEGO (AP) — The next chapter of the “Star Trek” franchise will be called “Star Trek Discovery.”

The title and footage of the starship Discovery were teased at the end of a Saturday panel at San Diego Comic-Con International featuring actors from every previous “Trek” series.

“Discovery” executive producer Bryan Fuller said the show coming to the CBS All Access streaming video service will draw upon the optimistic tone established by “Trek” creator Gene Roddenberry.

The brief teaser footage featured close-ups of a Starfleet ship called Discovery moving out of a docking station located within an asteroid.

Fuller was joined at the pop-culture convention by original “Trek” series star William Shatner, “The Next Generation” actors Brent Spiner and Michael Dorn, “Enterprise” leading man Scott Bakula and “Voyager” actress Jeri Ryan.
