STAR TREK: DISCOVERY Behind-the-Scenes Video Gives Us a Look Inside the New Series

CBS has started production on the highly anticipated series Star Trek: Discovery, and to celebrate the occasion, they've released a behind-the-scenes featurette that gives us a cool little glimpse at what they are developing. It includes video of the set, concept art, costumes, props, and more. It's actually kind of exciting! 

β€œOn March 11, 1964, Gene Roddenberry wrote three words on a blank page – 'Star Trek Is...'. What followed was half a century of stories, unbridled by the constraints of time or space, but always a reflection of what it means to be human.”

The road to bringing Star Trek: Discovery to life has begun. The story is set prior to the events of the original Star Trek series and will center around a new ship, new missions, and new characters that will inspire a new generation of fans.

The series will feature a fantastic cast that includes Sonequa Martin-Green, Doug Jones, Anthony Rapp, Michelle Yeoh, Chris Obi, Shazad Latif and Mary Chieffo. I've got high hopes for the series, and I hope CBS and their creative team can awesomely pull off what they are trying to accomplish.
