Did You Know?


As she passed away on December 18, 2008, this is the first "Star Trek" incarnation (including the animated series and the 2009-2016 film series) not to involve Majel Barrett. See more »


Despite being a prequel, set 10 years before the original Star Trek and more than a century before The Next Generation, Deep Space Nine and Voyager, the Discovery is far more advanced than any of the ships from those series (spore drive, holographic displays, automated self-covering spacesuits, etc.). The first Starfleet ship that was seen using holographic communications (as opposed to a standard viewscreen) was the Defiant in Deep Space Nine, set approximately 120 years after Discovery.

Alternate Versions

When Season 1 was broadcast on CBS in the fall of 2020, the main title sequence was shortened to just the show name and the ship fly-by. The credits themselves ran during the first act. See more »

User Reviews

Big budget, low quality.
15 August 2019 | by JonjaNetSee all my reviews

The acting, for the most part, is TERRIBLE. Saving graces are Doug Jones and Mary Wiseman. (Tilly is too talented for this)

Only watched 1st season so far. Stories are mediocre with exception to the three part "mirror universe" story line. That one is abominable!

Watched out of morbid curiosity. Giving it a solid "meh"
