'Star Trek: Discovery' Comic Con Trailer Teases A Klingon/Starfleet War


Star Trek

For years, 'Star Trek' fans have been hoping that the franchise would make its return to the small screen with a brand new adventure, and now they're finally getting their wish with the arrival of 'Star Trek: Discovery'; a new series exclusive to CBS All Access in the US and coming to Netflix in the UK.

Led by former 'The Walking Dead' star Sonequa Martin-Green as First Officer Michael Burnham, plot details had been scarce until this past weekend, when a little more was revealed at the annual San Diego Comic Con event. A fantastic new trailer for the show was also unveiled, which you can check out above.

Klingons Will Have "Different Styles" In 'Star Trek: Discovery'


Star Trek

Led by Sonequa Martin-Green in the role of Commander Michael Burnham, upcoming sci-fi television series 'Star Trek: Discovery' will bring a very different version of the universe to fans, with any glimpse we've seen of the show proving just that. One of the most notable changes is that to the Klingons, and it's something that split the potential viewers right down the middle.

Set 10 years before the original 'Star Trek' series, there isn't too much we know about the plot we'll be following when 'Discovery' makes its debut, but we did learn a little earlier this year that one huge event will be circled throughout at least the first string of episodes. In that event, Klingons will be playing a huge role, so just why has their look differed so much to those that we've seen in the past?

'Star Trek: Discovery' Is Influenced By 'Game Of Thrones'


Star Trek

If 'Star Trek' fans think they're in for the usual scenarios and events with upcoming CBS series 'Star Trek: Discovery', they'll have to think again. Showrunners have hinted that the upcoming first season of the show will be unlike anything the sci-fi franchise has seen before, with gritty episodes promised, not too different to that of HBO critically-acclaimed fantasy series, 'Game Of Thrones'.

In 'Thrones', we've seen fan-favourite leading characters killed off in most seasons, with those working on the show pushing forward the story presented whatever the casualties have to be. It's something that 'Discovery' showrunners have noticed is becoming a trend of the small screen, and they're unafraid to do the same.

Star Trek Chris Pine Anton Yelchin

Star Trek Beyond has topped the US box office on its opening weekend, taking $59.9m. The film had one of best US openings of summer to date, however it failed to match the opening of Star Trek: Into Darkness which debuted with $70m in 2013.

The first film in the rebooted franchise, Star Trek, had scored even better when it opened in 2009, taking $75m. But Star Trek Beyond’s $59.9m was enough to knock off last week’s number one, The Secret Life of Pets, which fell to number two after taking $29.3m.

"I'm attempting to sell a 50th anniversary show, but so far I've had very little luck. Maybe because Paramount's going to do their own - but I don't know how they can do their own without me. I've never been contacted,” Shatner said.

Michael Ansara, One Of Star Trek's Most Famous Villain, Has Died Aged 91


Star Trek

Michael Ansara will forever be remembered as the man who portrayed one of sci-fi's most feared yet respected villains; Kang in the television series Star Trek. Following his death earlier this week, the actor will further be remembered as not only a great villain, but as a great actor who was respected by his peers, loved by his fans and will be missed by his friends, family and colleagues.

Born to American parents in a small village in Syria in 1922 (he returned to America with his parents two years later), Ansara first ventured into acting in the late 1940's, eventually breaking into television and some movie work after a few years performing on-stage. He first got his break portraying a Native American in two western series, playing Cochise in ABC's Broken Arrow and as Apache Deputy U.S. Marshal Sam Buckhart in NBC's Law of the Plainsman. He also appeared in a number of big screen Westerns as well as a number of Biblical epics, including The Robe, The Ten Commandments and The Greatest Story Ever Told, however it was his role as Kang that will be remembered the most.

Ansara's relationship with Star Trek began when he first appeared as the Klingon warrior Kang, going on to play him another two episodes in the 1990's in two separate spin-offs from the original series. He first appeared in the 1968 broadcast episode 'Day of the Dove' from the original Star Trek series, reprising his role for the Deep Space 9 episode 'Blood Oath' and again for the Voyager episode 'Flashback.'
