According to Variety, the premiere episode and all subsequent first-run episodes will then be available exclusively in the U.S. on CBS' All Access digital subscription service. The hope is that obsessive "Trek" fans will help grow the All Access brand.
"This new series will premiere to the national CBS audience, then boldly go where no first-run 'Star Trek' series has gone before - directly to its millions of fans through CBS All Access," said CBS Digital Media exec Marc DeBevoise.
