The new “Star Trek” series “Star Trek: Discovery” has had a long and tumultuous production process, but the show’s two-part premiere episode is finally set to debut this fall on CBS. It will be followed by a 15-episode first season run on streaming service CBS All-Access.
Today, Entertainment Weekly revealed the first photo of “Star Trek: Discovery” star Jason Isaacs (best known as Lucius Malfoy from the “Harry Potter” film series) sitting in the Captain’s chair aboard the USS Discovery in uniform as his character, Captain Lorca.
“Star Trek: Discovery” takes place ten years before the original 1960s”Star Trek” series and will explore “an incident in Star Trek history that’s been talked about but never explored.”
The series will premiere on Sunday, September 24th on CBS.
