The second season of Discovery will re-introduce us to the U.S.S. Enterprise, before Jim Kirk ever sat in its Captain’s chair and boldly took it on its five year mission. But later this year, a new novel will show us what the ship was actually up to at the height of the Klingon War that broke out in Discovery season one. Read More >>

Star Trek: Discovery Returns Boldly, But We’re Not Quite Sure Where It’s Going Yet

Finally, Those Star Trek: Short Treks Are Available in the UK

Over the past four months in the run up to Star Trek: Discovery’s return, CBS All Access released four excellent mini-episodes under the Short Treks banner. Except they had a problem that was not quite as mini as the episodes: none of them were actually available outside of the U.S. and Canada. That’s finally changing. Read More >>

Alex Kurtzman on the Fine Line Between Adding to, and Staying True to, Star Trek’s Canon

It feels like Alex Kurtzman has been talking about Star Trek: Discovery’s approach to canon pretty much since the dawn of time (or at least, since everyone found out the show was set before the original Trek). Discovery’s already had to toe a pretty weird line when it comes to its approach to Star Trek’s past, but in his latest musing, Kurtzman makes a pretty good point. Read More >>

Star Trek: Discovery’s Second Season Is Being Helped by a New Captain Who’s Not a Massive Arsehole

Turns out when you a) kill your good figure of authority two episodes in and b) replace them with a morally grey scapegoat you eventually reveal is an alt-universe, MAGA-quoting, colossal space-tool, you don’t really have the time to get into the heady moral questions of the day.

Report: Star Trek 4 Might Be Shelved

After years with no updates, in 2018 it seemed like the rebooted Star Trek movie franchise was getting back on track. Star Trek 4 was happening again, and the Trek movieverse’s first female director, S.J. Clarkson, was at the helm. Then, things reportedly got bad with regards to casting. Now, there’s a chance the whole project might be going down like the Enterprise in Star Trek: Generations. Or in Into Darkness. Or Beyond. Take your pick, actually. Read More >>

Star Trek’s Latest Short Treks Gives Saru the Brilliant, Inspiring Origin Story He Deserves

Lt. Saru is one of Star Trek: Discovery’s most fascinating characters—not just as a previously unseen species within the canon, but because he brings with him the question of how a member of his seemingly ever-fearful race ever got into boldly going.

Humanity’s current understanding of physics may suggest faster-than-light travel is impossible, but researchers here on Earth can still observe happening in places much too far away to ever actually visit (and generally in the distant past).
