Star Trek Discovery season 5: Everything we know so far

Star Trek: Discovery first premiered back in 2017, and since then, it has headlined a fleet of new Star Trek shows and is on its way to becoming the most watched show on Paramount Plus. We'll be hopping aboard the USS Discovery for a fifth season, thankfully, as Paramount recently shared a first look at the next season during its Star Trek Day Celebration. Here's everything you need to know about the new season of Star Trek: Discovery. 


Star Trek Discovery season 5: What you need to know

Star Trek: Discovery takes place further into the future than anything else we've seen in the Star Trek Universe. That might come as a bit of a surprise - if you've only seen the first season or two of the series, as the crew of the USS Discovery was sent over 900 years into the future to the year 3188. The crew arrives in this new future to find the United Federation of Planets disbanded and space travel much harder due to an event known as The Burn.

The crew of the USS Discovery sets out to re-establish the United Federation of Planets. Going into the fifth season, the Discovery is captained by Michael Burnham (Sonequa Martin-Green). She'll of course be joined by her first officer Saru (Doug Jones). Making things tougher for Burnham is that the USS Discovery lost its Spore Drive, which allowed it to warp travel. As far as what we can expect in the next season, the plot was teased on Star Trek Day as revolving around Burnham and the crew being on the hunt for a powerful ancient object. We can assume we'll get into the process of rebuilding the Federation of Planets, too, as Earth agreed to rejoin in the finale of season four.

Star Trek Discovery: How to catch up

The Star Trek Universe literally spans over a thousand years of history in its different films and shows. Star Trek: Discovery is unique because it does that by itself - with a 900-year time jump occurring between the second and third seasons.
