I thought it was $6-7 per episode (week). I'll check the TrekToday news archive.

Edit: My mistake, you're exactly right. [Smile]

According to this article, it is, yes, $5.99 per month.

And according to this article, it's $9.99 per month for ad-free streaming.

It's $6 per minute. And the whole thing is clips of explosions from old episodes, lens flares and at the end, it was all a holodeck simulation anyway.

Info, info, info! The rundown as follows:

• Setting: 2256!
• Female lead who is NOT the captain!
• Gay character!
• Robots will be seen!
• More aliens!
• Possible Amanda Grayson cameo?
• "Depicting an event in Starfleet history that has never been explored"!
• NOT subject to broadcast standards & practices!

I love the idea of a series not centered on the captain. It'll make for some interesting storytelling.

I just went through the Memory Alpha chronology to try to find an event that might fit the mentioned-but-unexplored criteria. That'll be an interesting puzzle. It's not Axanar, not the Kobayashi Maru, and definitely not the Romulan War. Hmm...

About the only other event I can think of that's been mentioned going on in the 2250s is the conflict with the Sheliak - with the Treaty of Armens & last contact between the Fed & Sheliak being in 2255.
That and, of course, "The Cage". [Razz]

Was there ever a canon date for the Battle of Axanar? If not, then this could be what the show is about, and would explain all the lawsuit stuff w/ Alec Peters.

Methinks CBS might have greenlit a show about Axanar because Peters was making one and profiting off of it. If that's the case, then we ironically have Peters to thank for a new official Star Trek series.

Except he specifically disavowed that it was about Axanar.

Also, Zipacna, the Sheliak were never mentioned during TOS.

True, but who said that the TOS reference is the only reference? [Wink] In a universe as rich as this, any number of things can be worked in without breaking continuity.

Very interesting info. Given the timeframe, I wonder if we'll be seeing the uniforms from "The Cage", or those from TOS.

Can't wait until we get more info about the cast and characters.

Yeah, from here: http://m.ign.com/articles/2016/08/11/star-trek-discovery-will-have-a-female-lead-is-set-10-years-before-kirk-took-command-of-enterprise

"Fuller shot down the following theories, saying the show is not set around Axanar, Kobayashi Maru, or Section 31. But he did note the Federation event he's referring to is referenced in the original series."

I'm guessing the breakdown of relations between the Klingons and the Federation.
