Speaking to the initial idea for Star Trek: Discovery—which is set 10 years before Captain Kirk's five-year mission—Executive Producer Alex Kurtzman explains, "We needed to maintain the core of what Trek has always been about, and yet the scope and scale needed to expand so far beyond anything that had been on television before."

"Discovery is a completely new way of telling a Star Trek story, in a way that you might not expect," adds actor Jason Isaacs, who plays Captain Gabriel Lorca in the CBS All Access original series. "And you should watch carefully."

Meanwhile, the production is a marvel unto itself. Many of the sets, costumes, and effects are completely practical and incredibly detailed.

"It's art," Executive Producer Akiva Goldsman says of the finished product. "It's magic."
