This past weekend at San Diego Comic Con, executive producer Bryan Fuller revealed a new teaser video for the new CBS All-Access Star Trek series. It’s important to note that the design of the new ship is still subject to changes and the CGI is also not representative of how the final product will look when the show launches in January; this is very much a ‘teaser’ video meant to whet the appetite of fans and give us something to chew on as we wait for more information about this new Star Trek show.
The design of the U.S.S. Discovery is heavily influenced by Ralph McQuarrie’s concept art for the shelved 1976 Star Trek film Planet of the Titans. It’s very interesting to see that the new Star Trek series isn’t focused on another ship bearing the name Enterprise but rather a brand-new (old?) vessel. I’m greatly anticipating more information on Discovery and I’m just very happy that we finally have a new Star Trek TV series heading our way after all these years.
