I’ve touched upon the upcoming “Star Trek: Discovery” series that will air on CBS All Access and if you click the proper tag of the show name, you can see the trailer posts. Yesterday a healthy batch of the series character posters were unveiled and since I love those sorts of visuals I am sharing them with you in this narrative. After the run of images I have added in the larger cast and premise stuff. Enjoy.
The Premise: Set roughly ten years before the events of the original Star Trek, the series follows the crew of the USS Discovery as they discover new worlds and civilizations, while exploring the franchise’s signature contemporary themes. The season-long storyline revolves around “an incident and an event in Star Trek history that’s been talked about but never been explored”.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I generally keep this part short for the character posters postings and why change that angle now. These look rather dramatic but as I’ve said in one of our trailer narratives, we will NOT be subscribing to CBS All Access. There is just too much already being used by the entertainment budget to allow me this indulgence. What do you think of the posters? Like them, hate them, indifferent about them all? Let me know down in the comments section below. Sorry I didn’t edit the images to name the actors but I figured since that information was elsewhere in the post, I didn’t need to. See you soon my friends.
