During San Diego Comic Con 2016 (SDCC 2016) the new Star Trek TV series was named, art released plus a teaser video. Looks like fun!

Official announcement:

    Introducing the U.S.S. Discovery

    And the name of the newest Star Trek television series is… Star Trek: Discovery, with the show’s main ship called the U.S.S. Discovery (NCC-1031). Executive Producer Bryan Fuller revealed the details and debuted the logo today during a standing-room-only “Star Trek 50th Anniversary” panel in Hall H at San Diego Comic-Con.

    Fuller — who in the early morning served fans in line donuts and coffee — treated Hall H attendees to an exclusive first look video of the test flight of the U.S.S. Discovery, the newest Starfleet ship in the storied franchise’s return to television.

    “It’s an incredible honor to have shared the stage with these representatives of all the Star Trek series that have ever been,” Bryan Fuller told “And it’s also an honor to have them be the launching pad for for a new series that has something we all relate to in Star Trek mythology, which is discovery.”

    Fuller smiled when asked how and why the upcoming show — and its central ship — will be called Discovery. “There are so many reasons why we settled on Discovery,” Fuller explained. “But the chief one amongst them was that I couldn’t think of a more Star Trek-themed name for a ship than Discovery.”

    Star Trek: Discovery is coming to CBS All Access in January 2017, following the premiere on the CBS Television Network, and will be distributed concurrently on Netflix in 188 countries and through Bell Media in Canada.

Should be interesting!
