So...
  • Airs on CBS All Access in Jan 2017, streams on Netflix day after.
  • Set 10 years before TOS in the original timeline, not the JJverse stuff.
  • About seven main characters, focused on a female lead.
  • Female lead will be a Lt. Commander NOT a Captain. Unsure if there will be a Captain or this character is the highest ranking officer on the ship.
  • Visual style of show designed to bridge the difference between Enterprise and TOS.
  • Ship is called the USS Discovery.
  • More aliens in the crew than normal and not just "bumpy head" ones, possibly robots as well.
  • 13-episode series telling one story rather than individual ones.
I'm cautiously optimistic. Either way it'll be good to have some Trek back on TV but I hope they don't go too BSG on it, Stargate tried that and look what happened...

The person in charge of a ship is the captain regardless of actual rank.

I know this :P

From their statements so far it's just not clear whether the Lt Commander will be the "Captain" or there will actually be a Captain but they won't be the focus. I think from my own interpretation where they said they didn't want it to be from the point of view of the Captain because that's what all the other series did, I'm going with the latter.
