Star Trek: Discovery premiere watched by 9.6 million viewers

039;Star Trek Discovery' Premiere Draws 8 Million Viewers on CBS

The first two episodes of the new series are available to watch on Netflix now, and early reviews are positive.

It should be noted that while Discovery may not had reached the pinnacles of its predecessors, the television landscape has changed dramatically in recent years. The bulk of the show will only be viewable on the network's mostly unknown streaming service, CBS All Access. The talk show, hosted by Matt Mira, originally of the Nerdist, includes guest appearances from "Star Trek's" stars and features discussions of the episode and recaps.

Well, that's two episodes of Star Trek: Discovery down and in the books after premiere night on Sunday, September 24th. Episode 2 is available exclusively on CBS All Access.

Over the years there have been seven Star Trek TV series. If you live in the USA, you can watch the series on CBS All Access.

The USS Discovery, in the form of a light effect, flies over NY. After promising him that we wouldn't reveal his take on the new show until after CBS's embargo was lifted, he told us: "It's pretty different from what I expected".

The highly-anticipated new Star Trek: Discovery series is boldly going where no trek series has gone before.


But if we're honest, more important to our nerdy little minds than any of that was the raft of subtle callbacks, easter eggs and references to Star Trek's 50-year history.

So yeah. It's got pros and cons-and while that might have been good enough for previous Trek pilots, where viewers' only investment was tuning in every week, the investment level in Discovery is about six to 10 bucks higher.

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.

Klingons, Sarek, the Federation, namechecks of Andorians and Tellarites...they're all here, but try as the producers might, Star Trek: Discovery might be the least Trek-like show ever put on the air. Co-creator Bryan Fuller, who cut his teeth as a writer on "Star Trek: Voyager" and "Star Trek: Deep Space Nine" (still the best of the spinoffs after "Star Trek: The Next Generation"), is exactly the mind they'd probably want on this thing.

"With its level of talent and commitment, Star Trek: Discovery has a decent chance of getting on course to complete its mission". Martin-Green ably carries much of the load of these episodes, and that means that there are still plenty of characters and presumably series touchstones to explore in future segments.

If you scratch the surface of the original series, though, it's easy to see the limitations of that vision: from the episodes steeped in misogyny to the fact that the groundbreaking woman of colour character still only answered the phones, much of the purported Star Trek utopia is an invention of its fans.
