Star Trek Discovery: Bryan Fuller explains show title

There are no further details about the plans to create a fully digitized version of Barrett's voice at this stage, but with Star Trek: Discovery set to premiere on CBS All Access in the United States, and Netflix in other markets, in January 2017, fans may not have to wait too long to hear her voice come to life once more.

We'll find out what the computer voice on the starship Discovery sounds like when Star Trek: Discovery debuts sometime in early January 2017.

The brand-new "Star Trek" will introduce new characters seeking imaginative new worlds and new civilizations, while exploring the dramatic contemporary themes that have been a signature of the franchise since its inception in 1966.

For five decades, Star Trek has been part of our culture in so many different ways. While much of the event involved actors from the previous shows and films discussing their roles, there was still a panel created to shed light on the newest show, now just months away from broadcast. That allows the producers of future series and movies, like the upcoming Star Trek: Discovery, to re-assemble those individual syllables to say anything in the actress' voice.

The other big news to emerge from the panel came from Fuller, who said that the new show will not be from the captain's perspective.

At the gathering, Beyer said that longtime Star Trek author David Mack will write the Discovery tie-in novel, while writer Mike Johnson will have a hand in developing the comic series.
