‘Star Trek: Discovery’ Sets Course for Its Grand Finale: Watch Trailer
com com com com com com com

In 2017, the venerable “Star Trek” science fiction franchise had gone a full twelve years without a new series, after UPN aired the series finale of “Enterprise” in 2005. That changed when Paramount released “Star Trek: Discovery” on their CBS All Access (since rebranded to Paramount+) streamer, kicking off a new era for the IP.

Now, seven years later, the series is set to take its own bow. The fifth and last season of “Discovery” is set to premiere this April, and Paramount+ has released a new trailer for the series’ swan song.

Initially set a decade before the events of the iconic 1966 “Original Series,” “Star Trek: Discovery” focused on Michael Burnham a crew member on the Federation ship USS Discovery. Initially a science specialist under the command of Captains Gabriel Lorca (Jason Isaacs) and Christopher Pike (Anson Mount), she fully takes charge as the leader of the ship at the end of the third season — by that point the series had jumped 900 years into the future, and it’s remained there in the 32nd Century (the far future of “Star Trek” that up till now had never been explored) ever since. The show’s final installment will lead her crew on a galactic adventure to track down a mysterious, ancient power.

Although this season will mark the end of “Discovery,” it’s not the final chapter of “Star Trek” on Paramount+. Since the show’s premiere, several other franchise shows have premiered on the streamer, including the concluded “Picard” and the ongoing “Strange New Worlds,” as well as comedic animated series “Lower Decks.”

Martin-Green leads the cast of “Discovery,” which also includes Doug Jones, Anthony Rapp, Mary Wiseman, Wilson Cruz , David Ajala, Blu del Barrio, and Callum Keith Rennie. Alex Kurtzman and Michelle Paradise co-showrun the series, and executive produce with Martin-Green, Heather Kadin, Aaron Baiers, Olatunde Osunsanmi, Frank Siracusa, John Weber, Rod Roddenberry, and Trevor Roth. CBS Studios produces the series in association with Secret Hideout and Roddenberry Entertainment.

The first two episodes of “Star Trek: Discovery” season five will debut on Paramount+ starting April 4. The remainder of the 10-episode season will stream weekly on Thursdays, and the series finale will air on May 30. Watch the full trailer for the season below.

The fifth and final season will find Captain Burnham and the crew of the U.S.S. Discovery uncovering a mystery that will send them on an epic adventure across the galaxy to find an ancient power whose very existence has been deliberately hidden for centuries. But there are others on the hunt as well…dangerous foes who are desperate to claim the prize for themselves and will stop at nothing to get it.
