‘Star Trek: Discovery’: Sarek in Trouble, the Tardigrade’s Untold Starfleet Membership, and More Scoop From ‘After Trek’

16 October 2017 6:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

[Editor’s Note: The following contains spoilers from “Star Trek: Discovery” Season 1, Episode 5, titled “Choose Your Pain.”]

It’s been a while since we’ve seen Sarek (James Frain) on “Star Trek: Discovery,” and a sneak peek that played during after show “After Trek” finally gave fans a glimpse of the Vulcan ambassador. Sadly, it was not a very encouraging vision.

In a clip for Episode 6, Burnham is in the mess hall when she starts to feel funny. Everything gets wavy, and then she clutches her side and collapses. At that moment we see that Sarek has also similarly collapsed, and it’s his link with Burnham that causes her mysterious reaction. As one viewer pointed out, this could be Sarek having a heart attack since Vulcans’ hearts are around where human livers are. What could have triggered this is unknown for now, but since most Vulcans are vegetarian, it’s doubtful cholesterol has anything to do with it. Perhaps another stressor is the culprit?

CBS shuffles its Star Trek: Discovery schedule

7 October 2017 5:10 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Riding high off the early success of the new series, CBS has announced a slight shuffle to its Star Trek: Discovery schedule.

Originally, the plan was for eight episodes to air through to November, leading into a midseason break through to January, at which point the final seven episodes would get underway. However, we’ll now be getting nine episodes in the first half of the season, with the final six being held back until after the break.

Star Trek: Discovery is proving to be a big hit for CBS, with the network announcing that it has surpassed expectations with regards to CBS All Access subscribers, with the streaming service’s numbers up 200% since Discovery’s premiere last month.

[Editor’s Note: The following contains spoilers from “Star Trek: Discovery” Episode 3, “Context Is for Kings.”]

Star Trek” has a long history of citing what we modern viewers would consider classic literature. The references serve multiple purposes: to offer insight into the character quoting the material, to make the futuristic character more relatable, and to reassure us that millennia into the future, some part of our culture has endured in recognizable form. For mutineer Burnham (Sonequa Martin-Green), her classic novel of choice is “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.”

Don’t expect season 2 of Star Trek: Discovery until 2019

30 September 2017 12:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Given the number of delays the production faced during its first season, it probably won’t come as too much of a surprise to hear that a second season of Star Trek: Discovery isn’t expected to arrive until some time in 2019.

“Ideally, on the early side of 2019,” producer Alex Kurtzman told THR when asked when we might see season two hitting the airwaves. “There have been preliminary conversations about when and how [a second season could air] and we’ve been very consistent in our message, which is that rather than announce a date and have to push again, let’s take into consideration everything we’ve learned from this season. Now we know what we can do and where the sand traps are, so let’s give ourselves ample time to announce a date that makes sense to everybody – both the needs of production and CBS.

Star Trek: Discovery debuts to strong ratings, and heavy piracy

27 September 2017 1:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Star Trek franchise returned to the small screen for the first time in twelve years this past Sunday as CBS launched Star Trek: Discovery by airing the first two episodes of the new series, and it certainly seems like this latest foray into Gene Roddenberry’s world been a big hit with audiences.

As well as earning acclaimed from fans and critics alike [read our reviews here and here], CBS has announced that Sunday’s premiere drew 9.6 million viewers, with that figure expected to rise to more than 15 million once you take into account seven-day delayed viewing. Meanwhile, it also led to a record number of single-day signups for the network’s streaming service CBS All Access, which aired the second episode, and will be home to the remainder of the series in the States.

It remains to be seen what percentage of its audience signs up for the streaming service – especially as the first two episodes were heavily pirated, »

Star Trek: The Next Generation gets an Honest Trailer

26 September 2017 2:58 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Star Trek made its triumphant return to the small screen this past weekend with the premiere of Star Trek: Discovery [read our reviews of the first episode and second episode], and to celebrate, Screen Junkies has unveiled its Honest Trailer for Star Trek: The Next Generation!

Your dad loved the original Star Trek’s mix of campy aliens, cheesy dialogue, and razzy caliber acting. Now, get ready for the original series’ geeky younger brother featuring new aliens, more complex stories, and acting that’s way better than Star Trek deserves in this kinder, gentler sequel where crew members discuss their feelings, celebrate each others cultures, and fight with their words — not their fists.

Warp into the 21st century with an all new USS Enterprise — an awkward hybrid of a cutting edge spaceship and a Marriott convention center — and journey to a Sci-Fi utopia where poverty, racism, and war are a thing of the past. And forget about the original Star Trek »
