Bryan Fuller Reveals the Timeline Placement for Star Trek: Discovery at SDCC

Saturday’s Star Trek panel at San Diego Comic-Con brought out a lot of new information about Bryan Fuller’s upcoming CBS All-Access series Star Trek: Discovery (check out the first look at the USS-Discovery here), but one question that was on everyone’s mind was where the series would take place in Star Trek continuity.

While we don’t have all of the answers yet, Fuller’s big confirmation is that the series will be set in the “Prime” Timeline, which is the in-universe timeline of the previous television series but not that of JJ Abrams’ new film series (which is designated as the “Kelvin” Timeline). Fuller refrained from revealing exactly where on the timeline Discovery will be set (such as in relation to The Original Series), but fans are sure to be excited about the reveal that he did have at the panel.

In addition, Fuller revealed that, unlike most previous Star Trek series, Discovery will play out episode-by-episode in a serialized format similar to a novel, rather than in a standalone format for which the franchise is often known. Considering Bryan Fuller’s previous body of serialized work (such as Hannibal), I have a feeling that this will work out for the better.

What do you think about the Star Trek: Discovery reveals from SDCC? Are you looking forward to the series’ premiere in January? Let us know your thoughts in the comments down below!
