The latest TV edition of Star Trek will be launching a few months later than planned.

Streaming service CBS All Access said Star Trek: Discovery will premiere in May 2017 instead of January.

In a statement, series producers Alex Kurtzman and Bryan Fuller said their aim is to ‘dream big and deliver’ and they decided the additional time was needed to achieve their vision for the show.

After its premiere next spring on the CBS broadcast network, further episodes of the new Star Trek series will be available only on CBS All Access.

To help fill in until Star Trek: Discovery begins, a previously announced spin-off of CBS’s The Good Wife, starring Christine Baranski, will debut in February on the network and then move to CBS All Access.
