  • Star Trek: Discovery Episode 1-4 Titles Revealed

    We’re less than a week away from Star Trek: Discovery’s long-anticipated launch, and the titles of the first four episodes of the CBS All Access prequel series have just been announced. Set 10 years before the events of the original Star Trek series, Star Trek: Discovery follows Commander Michael Burnham (The Walking Dead‘s Sonequa Martin-Green), a human Starfleet officer who was raised by the Vulcan ambassador – and father to series icon Spock – Sarek. The series is said to revolve around an important event in the Federation’s history, and while plot details have been closely guarded, we know the Klingons will play a pivotal role – even if they look completely different from any prior iteration. The show is also the first return to the Prime timeline since the end of Star Trek: Enterprise in 2005, as the popular J.J. Abrams films take place in an alternate universe known as the Kelvin timeline. As anticipation for the series reaches a fever pitch, we finally know what the first few episodes will be called, and fans will undoubtedly be scouring them for clues. The titles were revealed in a dramatic new promo video via the official Star Trek Twitter, which you can check out above. The series premiere, entitled ‘The Vulcan Hello’, is both an obvious reference to the famous “live long and prosper” Vulcan greeting, as well as a nod to Commander Burnham’s status as a child of both Earth and Vulcan. ‘Battle at the Binary Stars’ is both mysterious and strangely poetic, seemingly backing up the trailer’s promise that this will be the most action-packed Star Trek series ever. ‘Context is For Kings’ brings to mind the series producers’ claims that they’ve taken some story cues from the morally darker world of Game of Thrones. ‘The Butcher’s Knife Cares Not For The Lamb’s Cry’ is the most opaque of the announced titles, and yet its grandiose metaphor is the title that most strongly channels the original series’ penchant for big, operatic themes. Star Trek fans are likely anxious for Discovery’s premiere. The news that critics are embargoed from posting reviews of the show before its premiere has given some fans pause, and the liberties the show is taking with some of Star Trek’s most bedrock tropes have long been cause for concern. That said, Star Trek will be in a much healthier place as a franchise if Discovery ends up being a hit both among hardcore fans and potential CBS All Access subscribers. We’ll find out soon. Star Trek: Discovery premieres Sunday, September 24 on CBS. The remaining episodes will stream exclusively on CBS All-Access.
