First Look At Jason Isaacs as Discovery's Captain Lorca

"Star Trek: Discovery", a 15-episode prequel to the iconic adventures of Capt. Kirk, Spock and the Enterprise, will launch on CBS on September 24.

Entertainment Weekly has debuted the first image of the Harry Potter veteran as Captain Gabriel Lorca on the bridge of the USS Discovery.

There is no denying that fans are ready for something new and Star Trek: Discovery looks to be gearing itself up to deliver. Immediately following the first episode's release, the second episode will be available on CBS All Access, with subsequent episodes released on Sundays. The episodes will also be available on CBS All Acccess that same night.

But there's a bit of a twist - Captain Lorca isn't the series' main focus. The first eight episodes will run from September 24 through November 5, with the series returning in January 2018.

"I'm the first officer on the U.S.S. Shenzhou that is captained by Captain Philippa Georgiou, who is played by the awesome Michelle Yeoh". Instead, it will be First Officer Michael Burnham, played by The Walking Dead alum Sonequa Martin-Green. Alex Kurtzman, Bryan Fuller, Heather Kadin, Gretchen J. Berg & Aaron Harberts, Akiva Goldsman, Rod Roddenberry and Trevor Roth serve as executive producers. The series will air on CBS All Access in the USA and be distributed concurrently by CBS Studios International on Netflix in 188 countries and in Canada on Bell Media's Space channel and OTT service CraveTV.

As you can see, CBS are keen to get Star Trek working on demand, which kind of sucks for me, since I don't have Netflix.
