'Star Trek: Discovery' producer Alex Kurtzman promises 'unique story'

TV & Movies
[MUSIC] The story that we have for season one is really interesting and special, and I think it pays tribute to a lot of what Trek has done, and in many ways is actually doing it in a new way. To have Sonequa and Michelle, as Captains of our ship, is really, really exciting and different. And I love stories that are based around strong women. And we have some very strong women on that show. Having, you know, Sonequa. She's a very special, very, very special actress. And Is bringing up a flavor to the character, that I feel like I haven't actually seen in Trek and that's really, really exciting. Her story is very unique and draws in some really interesting things in Trek lore. I think fans will both appreciate and I'm certain, will be a A cause of much debate. If you're a fan of Trek, you're gonna see a lot of things that harkens back to the original series and elements of the original series. I'm not just talking plot. I mean, the spirit of what that show was. We're gonna be revisiting a couple things on Discovery that I think people will find familiar. And without spoiling anything, I think You know we are adhering to a timeline and sticking to the rules, but also I think finding some new areas and avenues of exploration that have been only eluded to but fully explored [MUSIC] You've got a room full of people with very different and very devoted relationships to Star Trek in that writer's room. So it's being. And I think that carries on a pretty proud tradition of Trek being written by fans. You have to respect [UNKNOWN] As it's been written. You can't say that never happened. It's the bible. No, no, no that doesn't, you can't do that. They'll kill you. [LAUGH] Star Trek fans will kill you No, you have to respect Hannon. You have to understand the time lines and what the different timelines were and what the different universes were, and how they all worked together. And you have to keep very meticulous track of who, when, where and why. And we have people in the room and the writers have a sole job [UNKNOWN] say no, can't do that. Starfleet doesn't fire first. We have to. What have you done out there on the edge of Federation space? I'm trying to save you, I'm trying to save all of you. I think that at the core of Roddenberry's vision, And this is why I believe it has endured for as long as it has is the belief that human beings will always find a way to persevere and connect to each other. And that there is an optimistic outlook to where we could be going. And now more than ever we need that desperately. So he gives you hope [UNKNOWN] as you hoped.
