‘Star Trek: Discovery’ After-Show Renamed, Matt Mira To Host

Following the premiere of Star Trek: Discovery this Sunday, CBS All Access subscribers will see the debut of the newly renamed companion post-show on the over-the-top subscription streaming service.

Originally branded as Talking Trek, CBS has decided to rename the series After Trek. We assume this is to help differentiate and eliminate any confusion of a connection AMC’s Walking Dead after show Talking Dead.

CBS has already updated the artwork and included the show’s new logo in a clip available on the streaming service.

After Trek will premiere on CBS All Access at 11 pm ET, following the second episode of Star Trek: Discovery, which will be exclusive to the streaming service in the United States.

UPDATE: Nerdist’s Matt Mira has been named the host of After Trek.

The cast of Star Trek: Discovery includes Sonequa Martin-Green (First Officer Michael Burnham), Michelle Yeoh (Captain Philippa Georgiou) Jason Isaacs (Captain Gabriel Lorca), Chris Obi (T’Kuvma), Doug Jones (Lt.

Stamets), Wilson Cruz (Dr. Hugh Culber), Sam Vartholomeos (Ensign Connor), Mary Wiseman (Cadet Tilly), Mary Chieffo (L’Rell) and Rainn Wilson (Harry Mudd).

      Not likely. I don’t think there’s any CBS content on Hulu, Netflix has few of the ‘hot properties’. You can’t hardly stream any of the hot shows from Comcast if you’re not on your home network (you can’t use mom’s/friend’s comcast account remotely). CBS wants you to subscribe to their network and that’s their primary reason for putting Discovery on there. If you’re taking the budget route, I suggest waiting until 11/10 and trying CBS All Access free for a week and watch all of ST:D and see if it’s worth the subscription. Who knows, you may be able to try for free again after all episodes are available in Jan ’18.

    Well, considering it’s just a few days away, I’d assume that the host has been selected. Are they trying to keep it a secret? I hope they don’t do some sort of a ‘stunt’ host. I won’t even mention the names that spring to mind but it does not need to be anyone from front of the camera in any of the Star Trek gyrations. IMHO.
