Set roughly ten years before the events of the original series, Star Trek: Discovery shows a never before seen era that shaped Federation history. First Officer Michael Burnham (Sonequa Martin-Green) encounters new ships, worlds and villains as the threat of war looms.
Star Trek first hit the airwaves in 1966 – a period of time when geopolitical tensions were at their highest. Not that you would know that by looking at the diverse crew of the Enterprise. The creators of Star Trek knew that if humans are to someday explore the universe, we would need to put aside our differences and boldly go forth as citizens of Earth.

As the 50th anniversary of Star Trek approaches this summer I wanted to do something special to mark its birthday. Since I was a kid I dreamed of what my ultimate Star Trek film would look like. The Doctor Who 50th anniversary special had the Doctor meeting the older versions of himself. For Trek I wanted to have the classic crew meet and interact with the modern era crew. I went in and took footage from over a dozen different films and movies from the Star Trek universe. I rotoscoped the classic crew into my film so they could finally share the stage with their younger counterparts. Interestingly enough Chris Pine is the exact same age as Willam Shatner was when he did his first season on Star Trek. I wanted to blend the crews together and have them get into a massive space battle together. It now seems to be the custom to use ‘Star Trek’ as a verb in its sequel title, so to that end I humbly present you ‘Live Long and Star Trek’.
The USS Enterprise crew explores the furthest reaches of uncharted space, where they encounter a mysterious new enemy who puts them and everything the Federation stands for to the test.
