Per this Facebook post, the release date for DSC S3 is 15 October. As they're pushing this "23 weeks of Trek" thing, I suppose we'll get all of LRD S1 at the start.

The math works out to 10 LRD episodes & 13 DSC.

Yes, TrekMovie or TrekCore did the maths and it checks out. DSC s3 thus ends in early January. Bit of a pain having the latter part of the season over Christmas was my first thought, but then last year both For All Mankind and The Mandalorian were about the same.

The most interesting part about this is that there’s not going to be any breaks. I’m pretty sure this is going to be the longest continuous stretch of new episodes in Trek’s history. Even in the height of 90s TV there were multiple short breaks throughout the season.

I don’t know if CBS said it explicitly, but it seems like their ultimate goal is to have at least one new episode of some Trek series released every week. Though I think the diversity of show styles may get us to the point where we probably won’t want to watch every single one. (I’m sure they’d love it if we did.) But though I’ll likely check out the first episode of Prodigy, I really don’t expect to watch it all. And the Section 31 series will have to work really hard to prove that it’s worthy of the Star Trek name before I pretend it doesn’t exist.

I guess this is a long-winded way to say, I may not love every new show, but bring it on!

Hi -

Yes, I think you're right about continuous Star Trek. I think it's a good way to go for CBS All Access and Disney+, especially if they want to keep subscribers year round and not joining for occasional binges.

New Trek has been one of the most-used selling points for CBSAA since the start. If they have survey info that suggests a) it’s a quite significant draw to the service, and b) people might even not be maintaining their subscription when there’s no new Trek on (I don’t know their subscription model for obvious reasons) then it makes sense to maximise the frequency of that selling point. And maybe even winnow the range if people continue to throttle or stop/start their subscription depending on which specific show has new eps streaming at the time.

Prodigy could be a tricky proposition, being the only one explicitly geared toward a younger audience. It feels like a risky proposition to assume that fans will still subscribe to watch however “sub-par” the offering: that way lies VOY and ENT.

Prodigy isn't gonna be on CBSAA anyway.
