Or will she try to discover a new role for herself?

After the enormous catastrophe, Burnham is stripped off of her uniform and was sent to prison for mutiny; setting up the stage for the entirety of "Star Trek: Discovery".

Star Trek: Discovery premieres on CBS and CBS All Access September 24 at 8:30 p.m. E.T. Remarkable CEO Simon Powell said his company worked with CBS' assets of the ship to put together the visual effect.

Anthony Rapp and Wilson Cruz play Lieutenant Paul Stamets and Dr Hugh Culber, the first openly gay couple to be featured in a Star Trek series. I was gripped and engaged by the journey of Michael Burnham (Sonequa Martin-Green), the new series" lead character and only the second "Star Trek' lead who's not a captain.

In the new series Star Trek: Discovery "new worlds and civilizations are explored by new members of the Star Trek universe". And we also frequently visit the upstart Klingon leader T'Kuvma (Chris Obi) as he attempts to unify the 24 Houses of the Empire with a risky plan of aggression.

Star Trek: Discovery will likely hit Netflix next fall, a few weeks before the premiere of the next season of Star Trek: Discovery, assuming it's renewed for another season. At the same time, fans have anxious that none of these visuals line up with the history of the show - Discovery is basically set at the same time as "The Cage", the original Trek pilot which starred Jeffrey Hunter.

In February, CBS CEO Les Moonves reportedly told an audience at an event at UCLA that All Access had reached 1.5 million subscribers and that Showtime OTT was not far behind it.

It's a unique and daring intro.

Martin-Green and Yeoh are both experienced actors who do their best with what they have to work with here, including some of the stiffest dialogue we've heard in a while. Why does Discovery look more like it's come from the J.J. Abrams Trek films than the classic continuity?

The month of September alone has been the best ever for CBS All Access, thanks to Star Trek: Discovery, the fall kick-off of National Football League, and the season finale of Big Brother. The show doesn't go where no man has gone before, but it's still good to be back inside the ship.

Star Trek: Discovery is gearing up for its return to the small screen by releasing the main title sequence ahead of CBS' Sunday night premiere.

Bormanis (who is not with Star Trek anymore in an official capacity, but does write for The Orville) also gives Discovery's take on Star Trek terminology and technology a passing grade. During the episodes, we see an incoming conflict between the Klingons and the humans.
