The announcement of the series in press release announced only the initial format and did not describe any setting or subtitle for the show, which will be the first televised Star Trek series to be released in over a decade. Subsequent press for the show has named VOY and DS9 writer-producer Bryan Fuller as the showrunner, Rod Roddenberry as a producer and director-writer Nicholas Meyer as a member of the writing staff.
In July 2016, a new trailer for the series debuted for Comic-Con, showing the new USS Discovery (NCC-1031) and the title of the show, with showrunner Fuller teasing that the show would take place in an unspecified era of the original Star Trek timeline.
CBS has stated that Discovery is looking at a "sometime late summer, early fall" release date.
