CBS All Access to debut subscriber-only ‘Star Trek’ in 2017

NEW YORK (AP) – “Star Trek” is going boldly where it hasn’t gone before with a brand-new edition of the sci-fi TV franchise.

CBS Television Studios said Monday the “totally new” series will arrive in January 2017. But it will be available exclusively on CBS All Access, CBS’ subscription streaming video service.

Only a preview episode will be aired, free of charge, on the broadcast network, CBS said.

CBS All Access, which costs $5.99 a month, already offers every episode of all previous “Star Trek” television series. The new “Star Trek” will be the first original series to be developed specifically for U.S. audiences for the service.

No story or cast details were disclosed.

The original “Star Trek” premiered in 1966 and has spawned multiple follow-up series and feature films.
