New ‘Star Trek: Discovery’ Launch Delayed Until May 2017

LOS ANGELES (CBS SF/AP) – The latest TV edition of “Star Trek” is launching a few months later than planned.

Streaming service CBS All Access said Wednesday that “Star Trek: Discovery” will debut in May 2017 instead of January.

In a statement, series producers Alex Kurtzman and Bryan Fuller said their aim is to “dream big and deliver” and they decided the additional time was needed to achieve their vision for the show.

After its premiere next spring on the CBS broadcast network, further episodes of the new “Star Trek” series will be available only on CBS All Access.
