Sonequa Martin-Green in Star Trek: Discovery on CBS.

What to watch this weekend: 'Star Trek: Discovery,' 'DuckTales' returns

Boldly go: Star Trek: Discovery

It's been more than 50 years since the original Star Trek premiered, but the new CBS series is set 10 years before Kirk and Spock. Star Trek: Discovery explores the war between the Federation and the Klingons while following the USS Discovery, an exploratory vessel. The protagonist is Michael Burnham (Sonequa Martin-Green), the first officer on the Discovery. Harry Potter's Jason Isaacs plays Capt. Lorca. The full trailer suggests the Federation-Klingon war will feature prominently in the new series, but there are also hints of something stranger happening . In a break from the norm, CBS didn't allow critics to view episodes or review the new series before its premiere. It could mean it's terrible or it could just mean CBS really wants to keep spoilers under wraps. Here's hoping Trekkies are pleased. Premieres 8:30 p.m. Sunday on CBS; remaining episodes premiering on CBS All Access streaming....
