The Crew Beams Down To The Red Carpet
Star Trek: Discovery started today on Netflix in the UK and CBS All Access in the US and here’s the red carpet premiere for it from earlier this week…
Created by Bryan Fuller and Alex Kurtzman for CBS All Access, the story of Star Trek: Discovery begins roughly a decade before Captain Kirk’s five-year mission — as portrayed in the original “Star Trek” from the 1960s — and a century after the events of “Star Trek: Enterprise.” and a century before Star Trek: The Next Generation. The series follows the crew of the USS Discovery as they encounter new worlds and civilizations, delving into familiar themes and expanding upon an incident that has been talked about within the franchise’s universe, but never fully explored.
After answering a distress signal from the U.S.S. Enterprise, season two of “Star Trek: Discovery” finds the crew of the U.S.S. Discovery joining forces with Captain Christopher Pike on a new mission to investigate seven mysterious red signals and the appearance of an unknown being called the Red Angel. While the crew must work together to unravel their meaning and origin, Michael Burnham is forced to face her past with the return of her estranged brother, Spock. Cast members Sonequa Martin-Green, Anthony Rapp, Anson Mount and Mary Wiseman passed by the studio to talk about the series.
