CBS scores record All Access sign-ups from 'Star Trek' premiere

CBS scores record All Access sign-ups from 'Star Trek' premiere

Jonathan Frakes, who famously taught us all how to sit in chairs as William T. Riker on Star Trek: The Next Generation and will direct an episode of Discovery, seconded Visitor's assessment.

The first two episodes of "Star Trek: Discovery" will be available on-demand for CBS All-Access subscribers after the show's premiere. In Discovery, you've got the shiny visuals of the new movies, but none of the character charms; you have the TV series' science nerdery, but its grandeur and strangeness are kneecapped by the fact it's a prequel.

FOX | Who Shot Biggie & Tupac? did 2.8 mil and a 1.1.

"Discovery", which is the first new "Star Trek" show in more than a decade, also led CBS All Access to its highest signup day ever.

Here are more details on CBS All Access.

"Star Trek: Discovery" blasts off this weekend, and in celebration, so has a real-life USS Discovery.

The 15-episode first season of "Star Trek: Discovery" will be divided into two chapters.

The series stars Sonequa Martin-Green as a promising first officer of the United Federation of Planets raised by Vulcans.

Eenam Gambhir, Indian Secretary To UN, Who Termed Pakistan As 'Terroristan'
She told the global community that if the enemies cannot be defined, how the countries can fight together against it. Her speech comes after India, in its Right of Reply to Abbasi's speech, termed Pakistan as "Terroristan".

Executive producer Alex Kurtzman said initial discussions among producers focused on bringing "something new to "Trek" that both fans and people who'd never seen the show before could experience".

IDW's four-part Discovery comic is set before the events of the rapidly-approaching TV series, and will explore the background of Chris Obi's character T'Kuvma, the leader of the faction of Klingons we meet in the show, and how he's come to stand a little separately from his fellow Klingons in the Empire. That's out the window in the biggest possible way, because Burnham is going to continue the show on a new ship, with a new captain and crew, while wearing the label, "mutineer". Consequently, while I applaud Star Trek Discovery for boldly representing women of color, I hope this is not the last we see of Captain Phillippa Georgiou (backstory please!) or women of color as Starfleet Captains.

According to a report by Deadline, 9.6 million people tuned into CBS on Sunday night to watch the premiere of the long-awaited first episode of the latest Star Trek series.

Nearly no one has seen a Klingon in more than 100 years.

We've been waiting a long time for Star Trek to return to television - since May 2005 to be exact.

So far there's been as much discussion about Star Trek: Discovery's distribution model as there has been about Star Trek: Discovery. You're not going to be willing to pay $12-18 for two or three months of All Access programming to watch this show?

Over the years there have been seven Star Trek TV series.

It's just something of an in-joke among Star Trek writers that developed out of nowhere. Sonequa Martin-Green (Commander Michael Burnham) is the stand-out actor, joined by James Frain (Sarek, Spock's dad) and Doug Jones (Lt. Saru).
