Maybe if one of the new shows doesn't work out, it can be replaced with "Discovery".
Star Trek: Discovery is the first new TV series in the franchise since the end of Enterprise in 2005, the fifth live-action show in the series and the second chronological prequel.
CBS has released the full Star Trek:Discovery opening title sequence ahead of its debut tonight at 8:30pm ET on the network and its All Access streaming service.
What do you think about the Star Trek: Discovery premiere ratings?
Panicked by the possibility of engagement with the galaxy's premiere warrior species, Burnham makes a series of risky decisions to save her ship - even betraying her captain and mentor Philippa Georgiou (Michelle Yeoh) - and winds up giving the Klingons exactly what they wanted, a pretense for galactic war. But since we're supposed to empathize with her as the lead character, the show tries to have it both ways - and when your lead character commits an act of mutiny not long after you're introduced to her, it's hard to muster up any positive feelings toward her. During the episodes, we see an incoming conflict between the Klingons and the humans.

Brian and executive producer Alex Kurtzman said: "Bringing Star Trek back to television carries a responsibility and mission: to connect fans and newcomers alike to the series that has fed our imaginations since childhood". Burnham has served seven years under Georgiou after being trained at the Vulcan Science Academy by her surrogate father Sarek (James Frain), a character well-known to Trek fans. And as a whole, the drama takes the optimism at the core of Gene Roddenberry's vision and, in the tradition of the best of the "Star Trek" canon, uses it to examine the choices of well-intentioned characters faced with compromises, mysteries, alien cultures and moral dilemmas.
The company said CBS All Access also had its best week and month with the launch of Star Trek, the kick off of the National Football League on CBS on its local live feeds and the season finale of Big Brother.
It's worth noting that there's also a fair bit of the original "Star Trek" woven into "Discovery's" premise, given that it's set about a decade before the events of that program.
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. Unfortunately, there's no way to really answer that beyond the fact that it just wouldn't be feasible to feature those antiquated "Cage" designs on a modern show that is meant to relaunch the franchise on the small screen.
Bormanis also called the new, retro-style yellow transporter effects "cool" (though as any quantum physicist will tell you, still a highly improbable technology), but had a few gripes about Discovery's make-over of the transporter room, which definitely has a retro-vintage vibe. At the same time, the playfully adversarial relationship between Burnham and Saru is already a highlight, while the many twists and turns of the plot firmly establish that Discovery is playing by a different rulebook than its predecessors.
