It's yet to be travelling at Warp Speed, but "Star Trek Discovery," the latest TV iteration of the classic sci-fi series, is slowly making its way through the production process. Les Moonves, the head honcho at CBS, has gone so far as to give fans a new timeframe for when they can expect to see the final product: Late summer/early fall (via TheWrap).
Moonves outlined the new window for the show's release at the 2017 Morgan Stanley Technology, Media & Telecom Conference, held in San Francisco on 27 February, although he did add the caveat "probably" to his announcement.
This latest piece of rescheduling is just the the most recent hiccup the much-anticipated series has had to face — back in December 2016, "Discovery" lost showrunner Bryan Fuller, due to scheduling conflicts with his work on Starz adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s “American Gods.”
However, despite the delays, Moonves also stressed the importance his company was placing on "Discovery" as the centerpiece of its CBS All Access "over-the-top" streaming service, referring to the show as its "family jewels.”
“Star Trek: Discovery” will air on the CBS television network before moving exclusively to the network’s All Access online streaming subscription service for its 13-episode first season. Cast members include Sonequa Martin-Green, Doug Jones, James Frain and Anthony Rapp.
