Oh, don't read the comment section unless you want the worse kind of headache.  SJW this and Alt-Right that.  Yikes.

September 24th is the premiere date.  For the first batch because that's a thing now.

Quote
Star Trek: Discovery will launch in the U.S. on Sunday, September 24 with a broadcast premiere that night on the CBS Television Network airing at 8:30-9:30 PM, ET/PT (time approximate following NFL Football and 60 Minutes). The series premiere will also be available on-demand on CBS All Access and the second episode of the series will be available on the service that same night immediately following the broadcast premiere.

After premiere night, all new episodes will be available on-demand weekly on Sundays exclusively for CBS All Access subscribers in the U.S. The 15-episode season will be released in two chapters. The first eight episodes will run from Sunday, Sept. 24 through Sunday, Nov. 5. The season will then resume with the second chapter debuting in January 2018.

Check the link if you outside the States.  This is, of course, up to chance if the football doesn't go into overtime or whatever.

I can't wait.  I'm already reading a lot of crying about the mid-season break though.

Slightly aged since I had to bookmark it and I forgot it.  Anyway, Nicholas Meyer Says He's Working On a New Star Trek Project

Quote
Star Trek fans know Nicholas Meyer as the director of arguably the best film in the franchise, 1982's The Wrath of Khan. However, 35 years later, he’s still working on Star Trek. Besides being a producer on the upcoming Star Trek: Discovery, Meyer recently hinted that something else is in the works.

Speaking (or, more specifically, not speaking) about Star Trek: Discovery to TrekMovie, Meyer said the following:

   
Quote
One thing that has nothing to do with Discovery is that I am working on another Star Trek project, but I can’t discuss that either.

When asked if he was talking about a movie, which is the other new Trek project the public knows about, Meyer vaguely teased that maybe it was another TV show. When the reporter said they assumed there was only the one television project in the works, Meyer replied, “You can assume.”

We contacted CBS about the Meyer’s comments and haven’t heard back as of publication.

The movie mentioned is a sequel to Star Trek Beyond. Last year, news broke that Paramount would make another film with the current film crew but also bring back Chris Hemsworth as Kirk’s father. However, after the disappointing box office of Beyond, there hasn’t been any public update on that project in some time.

The show was delayed for quality assurance.

Quote
The premiere of "Star Trek: Discovery" on CBS' subscription streaming service, CBS All Access, was postponed nine months to maintain the quality of the brand. Executive producer Alex Kurtzman told the Television Critics Association Tuesday that they "spent a lot of time" discussing how to create this new world for TV that felt authentic to the "Star Trek" universe. Also during that time, executive producer Bryan Fuller decided to exit the series as showrunner to focus on other projects. Kurtzman said "it became clearer and clearer" that the targeted January debut would "compromise the quality of the show," so it was pushed with the blessing of CBS Chairman and CEO Leslie Moonves.

Well, we'll see if that was smart move or not in a month.

Discovery has officially been rated TV-MA in the United States.  Which means I'm going to cancel my CBS All Access subscription.  First Star Trek show I'll miss.  Oh well.

I assume MA means "mature"?

Is that a bad thing?

Cel probably reasonably assumes there will be blood.  Green vulcan blood or otherwise.

TV-MA means "Television for Mature Audiences."  It means that the show will contain lots of naughty language, and/or gore, and/or graphic violence, and/or nudity, and/or sex.

CBS has already said that there won't be any nudity, so I'm betting on gore and/or graphic violence.  Which is a no go for me.

It's stupid.

Okay, why is there gore?  To make it edgier?  It's Star Trek, the only thing edgy in it should don't be a dick to people.

It was pretty gory in some of the movies though.  Like in 6 where they literally walked through a mist of Klingon blood.

The Hollywood premiere was last night. According to some people that attended, there was nothing in the first two episodes shown that qualified for a TV-MA rating in their opinions. That's some good news.

I can safely guess that one on tonight won't be MA, since it'll be primetime on broadcast TV.
