Below is the synopsis of "Star Trek: Discovery," per IMDB.
Ten years before Kirk, Spock and the Enterprise, the USS Discovery discovers new worlds and lifeforms as one Starfleet officer learns to understand all things alien.
Indiewire's Liz Shannon Miller writes:
While Discovery is fundamentally quite different from much of the Trek that's come before, its engagement with the franchise, and willingness to both celebrate and examine its core values, keep it true to that spirit.
Check out the trailer below.
Below is the synopsis of "The Orville," per IMDB.
Follows the crew of the not-so-functional exploratory ship in the Earth's interstellar fleet, 400 years in the future.
Den of Geek's Michael Ahr writes:
The Orville relies heavily on its nostalgic tone and its casual humor, showing some promise despite a stuttering start.
