Welcome to the future of Star Trek, it’s not a bright as one might have imagined. During their New York Comic Con, the cast and crew of Star Trek: Discovery spoke about the series jump to over 930 years in their future, putting them much further than any Star Trek stories have ever really focused on.
Things have changed a lot in that time as one can see in the season three trailer that was dropped during the panel, the Federation is no longer the powerful entity that it was and the universe could use a bit of brightness brought back. A brightness that Commander Saru states in the trailer that the crew of the Discovery might bring.
Star Trek: Discovery returns at some point in 2020 on CBS All Access.
