… Discovery follows the voyages of Starfleet on their missions to discover new worlds and new lifeforms, and one Starfleet officer who must learn that to truly understand all things alien, you must first understand yourself.
The first trailer for the series was released in May2016, with a new logo font for the Star Trek title and the tagline "New Crews. New Villains. New Heroes. New Worlds.".
Rather than airing on a network, the new series was sold into syndication, to be shown by various local television stations at a time of their choosing. Because of this, the initial airdates of each episode of the series varied throughout the normal calendar week based on the station airing the show.
