CBS is bringing Star Trek back to the small screen tonight with the series premiere of Star Trek: Discovery. Unfortunately, only the pilot episode will be airing on traditional broadcast. After tonight, you’ll have to head over to the network’s streaming platform every week.
Admittedly, we were much more interested in this show when Bryan Fuller (Hannibal) was attached to it. Fuller’s vision sounded delightfully weird and entertaining. Still, we’re happy to have Trek back in any way we can get it. As a franchise, you don’t stick around for 50 years if you suck.
If you’re interested in checking out the series premiere of Star Trek: Discovery, we got you covered with all the ways you can live-stream the episode.
