About the Show

Timeline setting: 23rd century, 2255-2258; 31st century
Beginning only 11 years before the adventures of Captain Kirk and the U.S.S. Enterprise, Star Trek: Discovery is the first show to be told from the point of view of a non-captain.
Star Trek: Discovery follows Commander Michael Burnham as she struggles to reconcile her duty and feelings when her troubled personal past intersects with Starfleet duties. While exploration and scientific discovery are common themes in Star Trek, and the U.S.S. Discovery is the hero ship in the show, the name of the show refers equally as strongly to the voyages of self-discovery that are at the heart of each character, each episode and each season of this vibrant, thoughtful and visually stunning new Star Trek series.
After answering a distress signal from the U.S.S. Enterprise, season 2 of Star Trek: Discovery finds the crew of the U.S.S. Discovery joining forces with Captain Christopher Pike on a new mission to investigate seven mysterious red signals and the appearance of an unknown being called the Red Angel. While the crew must work together to unravel their meaning and origin, Michael Burnham is forced to face her past with the return of her estranged brother, Spock.
Seasons 1 and 2 are now available to stream on CBS All Access and is distributed concurrently by CBS Studios International on Netflix in 188 countries and in Canada on Bell Media’s Space channel and OTT service CraveTV. The series is produced by CBS Television Studios, Secret Hideout and Roddenberry Entertainment.
