It’s only been a day, and there’s plenty of new Star Trek updates to share! From new Discovery promos to new Trek merchandise hitting the web, we break it all down for you below.
The costume experts at Anovos have announced that they’re bringing the often-maligned Star Trek: The Next Generation ‘skant’ uniform to their line of Trek wardrobe reproductions in 2018, complete with short sleeves and high hemline that made this uniform variant famous.
Set to arrive in all three division colors, the quickly-forgotten TNG uniform will be sold in a women’s cut starting at $250, and can be preordered now at Anovos.com.
Discovery makeup artist James MacKinnon (above, with director Jonathan Frakes) will be appearing with actor Doug Jones (Lt. Saru) and fellow DSC prosthetic artist Hugo Villaseñor at the Toronto International Makeup and Tradeshow (IMATS) this Sunday afternoon for a Star Trek: Discovery panel open to all attendees.
MacKinnon serves as the department head of prosthetics and makeup effects for the new series, previously serving on the makeup crews of Deep Space Nine, Voyager, and Star Trek: First Contact.
The marketing campaign for Star Trek: Discovery continues offline this week, as new billboards and outdoor advertisements are being spotted in the wild. DSC actors Mary Chieffo and Ken Mitchell found this billboard…
…while another building-sized advertisement for the series was signed being painted in the Westwood district of Los Angeles.
If you’re in a major metropolitan area, watch for Discovery ads near you!
Geek-gear company LootCrate has announced a Star Trek-specific subscription called Star Trek: Mission Crate which will serve up “an exclusive collection of high-quality collectibles (like Mini-Masters by QMx, prop replicas and division-specific apparel) beamed to your door,” delivered in bimonthly shipments.
While individual crates can be purchased separately, a subscription package customized to the Starfleet division of your choice (command, sciences, operations, or medical) is available at $39.99 per bi-monthly shipment, with “4-6 items” valued at “$65+” per crate.
The first shipments are expected to arrive to subscribers in December 2017.
Two new Discovery promos arrived today! The first, from CBS entitled “Tolerance, Freedom, and Justice,” brings a new voiceover from Sonequa Martin-Green on the values of the Federation.
We come from a tradition of tolerance, freedom, and justice. From a legacy of fearless exploration; of allies who respect each other’s differences, honor, and civilizations.
We come on a mission to understand our world, and ourselves, better. We come in peace.
From Netflix — distributing Discovery outside of the USA and Canada — comes an additional promo focusing on the virtues of Starfleet… and the antagonism of the Klingons.

At present this second promo is only available in a region-locked release; we’ll replace the above fan-site rehosting with an official release if one becomes available.
Finally, fans in Canada have at last learned when they’ll be able to stream Star Trek: Discovery in their country.
Bell Media has announced that streaming service CraveTV will be releasing new episodes online in Canada starting Monday, September 25, the day after the Discovery premiere episode airs on CTV and Space in that nation.
