In a newly-released video, STAR TREK: DISCOVERY executive producer and showrunner Bryan Fuller speaks a bit about what “discovery” means to the world of Star Trek, and what influence it may have on the new series.
For those of you who cannot view the video (as it appears to be region-locked to the USA), here’s a transcript of Fuller’s comments.
Discovery is so intrinsic as a concept to the philosophy of “Star Trek,” and I felt like it was a beautiful way to acknowledge that spirit – and also, what “Star Trek” has provided for me is an inspiration on where we’re going as a species and a planet.
[“Star Trek”] has given so much hope for a better world because we need it in the world that we’re living today. We need curiosity and we need exploration and we need to find better versions of ourselves, and we need to discover better versions of ourselves.
Sounds like a good start!
