Star Trek: Discovery episodes

Star Trek: Discovery is the sixth live-action Star Trek TV series, which began airing in 2017. The series is set ten years before TOS, and focuses on the character of Michael Burnham. The series is mainly set on the USS Discovery, featuring the crew of the ship, but the first two episodes took place on the USS Shenzhou, and Klingon characters also feature prominently in the series.

In most territories the series was available only via streaming services, available on Netflix in most of the world, CBS All Access in the USA, and Bell Media services in Canada (including the Space TV channel).

This page lists and details episodes of the series. For a more general overview, details of behind the scenes coverage, and tie-in products, see my Discovery guide page.
