12 years later, the new Star Trek series is finally landing on Netflix very soon
Time for Trekkies to get excited!
While it feels like a long time since we got some proper Star Trek, it really hasn't been gone all that long.
The Original Series ran from 1966 to 1969, but then we had that one-half-great / one-half-terrible series of movies from 1979 to 1991. Then we had The Next Generation on the small screen from 1987 to 1994, before they took over the big screen, from 1994 to 2002. There was also Deep Space Nine (1993 to 1999), Voyager (1995 to 2001), Enterprise (2001 to 2005), and then the rebooted movie series (2009 to 2016).
And now, over a decade since the last television series ended, we have Star Trek Discovery.
The show follows an impressive cast including Michelle Yeow (Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon), Jason Isaacs (Harry Potter & The Goblet Of Fire), Rainn Wilson (The US Office), Doug Jones (Hellboy) and more, working with executive producers Bryan Fuller (Hannibal, American Gods) and Alex Kurtzman (Fringe, Alias).
The plot is set ten years before Kirk and co., with the crew of the USS Discovery at the forefront of the cold war between the Federation and the Klingons.

The first episode will debut on Netflix on Monday 25 September - the day after it premieres on CBS in the States - with each additional episode coming out week-by-week for the rest of the fifteen-episode series.
Not long to wait now...
