Star Trek: Discovery Delayed

CBS has pushed back the launch of Star Trek: Discovery from January of next year to May. This is not terribly surprising to me seeing how little news there's been. I was expecting cast announcements at Comic Con and 7.5 weeks later, we still have no cast and little actual footage. It's hard to release something that soon when you don't even know who's playing your main character. Bryan Fuller & Alex Kurtzman commented,
Bringing Star Trek back to television carries a responsibility and mission: to connect fans and newcomers alike to the series that has fed our imaginations since childhood. We aim to dream big and deliver, and that means making sure the demands of physical and post-production for a show that takes place entirely in space, and the need to meet an air date, don’t result in compromised quality. Before heading into production, we evaluated these realities with our partners at CBS and they agreed: Star Trek deserves the very best, and these extra few months will help us achieve a vision we can all be proud of.
