The hopes of fans of the franchise could skyrocket as the latest reports reveal Star Trek Discovery heads into production before the end of January. The show has long been announced.
The 24th of January is likely a red-letter day for fans. For some time now, Star Trek Discovery news teased about the TV series.
Indeed, a number of hitches along the way marred the Star Trek Discovery timeline. Consequently, it led to a delay of the series premiere to May 2017. Indeed, the exit of series creator Bryan Fuller of Hannibal was a major setback to the production.
Good news about Star Trek Discovery
Nonetheless, it seems everything is about to sail smoothly for the Star Trek Discovery television series from now on. Comic Book cites the good news about it from IATSE 873 aka the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees local 873 in Toronto.
Its record of Current Productions lists Star Trek Discovery under the working title Green Harvest. The details attached to the listing reveal production will start on January 24 and carry on until September 17. Fuller remains on board as an executive producer.
To date, the Star Trek Discovery cast reportedly consists of Michelle Yeoh, Doug Jones, Sonequa Martin-Green, and Anthony Rapp. The ship’s name in the series is USS Discovery. Hence, the title for the television series.
What sets Star Trek Discovery apart
The latest Star Trek series to come in a long time to the small screen is set a decade before the original series took place. Yet unlike previous installments of the Gene Roddenberry creation, the Star Trek Discovery offers a twist.
Interestingly, the Star Trek series often centered on the key character who is the ship’s Captain. The honor of playing the role this time around goes to Michelle Yeoh. However, the setting this time would focus on Lt. Commander Rainsford played by Sonequa Martin-Green of The Walking Dead fame.
In other words, imagine The Next Generation as told through the vision of La Forge or Data. Captain Picard would have played a supporting role instead, Screen Rant explains.
