With CBS All Access ready to boldly go where no other network has gone in over a decade tonight, The Eye Network has released new photos from Star Trek: Discovery‘s premiere episode tonight, ‘The Vulcan Hello’; along with a new episode description. The series is set to premiere tonight at 8:30 pm EST on both CBS and CBS All Access.
The following photos highlight Sonequa Martin-Green (First Officer Michael Burnham) and Michelle Yeoh (Captain Phillippa Georgiou) on an away mission from the USS Shenzhou; James Frain as Sarek, the Vulcan father of Spock and surrogate father of Burnham; as well as Chris Obi‘s Klingon leader T’Kuvma and Mary Chieffo as L’Rell.

The series is produced by CBS Television Studios in association with Kurtzman’s Secret Hideout, Bryan Fuller’s Living Dead Guy Productions, and Roddenberry Entertainment.
Tonight’s Star Trek: Discovery premiere is actually a two-hour, two-episode event. ‘The Vulcan Hello’ will air on CBS for free, while that episode and the second one, ‘Battle of the Binary Star,’ will both be available to stream on CBS All Access. CBS’s new streaming service will be the home for Star Trek: Discovery for the remainder of the season.
Summary: Star Trek: 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.
