Comprehensive Guide To All The ‘Star Trek: Discovery’ Licensees And Merchandise

Star Trek: Discovery premieres in a month and like any other new entry in the franchise it arrives with merchandising. TrekMovie has confirmed with CBS a comprehensive list of new licensees for Discovery, including a few we haven’t reported before. So without further adieu, shut up and take our money

Books and comics

You can pre-order it at a discount at Amazon. The second book will be released in 2018 and will be written by Dayton Ward.

IDW Publishing has extended their Star Trek license to include Discovery. Their first mini-series titled Star Trek: Discovery will focus on T’Kuvma and the Klingons.

This entire first series will be available in a trade paperback collection in May 2018 for $15.99 and you can pre-order it at Amazon.   Instead of doing a single ongoing series, IDW plan a ‘series of mini-series’ for the show, with each one having a different focus. They have not announced what the second series will be, which will presumably arrive in 2018.

I can see where most of my spare money will be going! I need that calendar for my office at work!

@Pitt Trekkie,

Rule of Acquisition #3: Never spend more for an acquisition than you have to.

Good advice!!!!!!

I prefer #54 in this case: never buy anything you can’t sell.

Patiently waiting on the article about Adam Nimoy and Terry Farrell getting engaged. Can’t watch that clip enough now where Dax and Sisko are in the Enterprise corridor and she’s gushing over Spock.

PEB, that is pretty cool. I just re-watched that episode a few weeks ago, too – didn’t dawn on me when I saw that announcement today. Neat.

It feels like some weird comic book crossover that no one would’ve anticipated, but it’s actually just really sweet news (and – if I may say so – Adam Nimoy sure is one lucky fella: Terry Farrell is still an amazingly attractive lady)

What I’m most interested in is whether we’ll get a soundtrack release for the first season, and/or the Pilot.

@OneBuckFilms — I assume that’s because you collect all Star Trek film scores no matter how good or bad, and not for the likely uninspired Jeff Russo soundtrack apt to dribble out of this production?

I have an interest in the music for any Star Trek show, true, but I reserve judgment until I actually hear it. Have you heard any of the scores for the episodes so far, or the opening titles? Just curious as to how you know it’s “likely uninspired”. I have found Star Trek to often bring out some of the best film and TV music out there over time, so I guess I’m perhaps a little more optimistic.

Why would the music be any different from every element of the production?

Not sure what you’re getting at, but we haven’t seen any completed episodes to come to any conclusions. The music is simply an area of particular interest to me personally, and I certainly have great interest in what happens in all areas, from VFX, design, style, writing, cinematography etc. The focus on the music, and soundtrack album releases, is partly due to it’s apparent absence from the product announcements here, as well as my particular love of them.

I was always disappointed that Dennis was used so much for TV Trek. While his sound became familiar for Trek TV, it also became repetitive. Then again, it was 90s TV so I guess they weren’t trying to be too out of the box. On the flip side, I loved his Generations soundtrack.

Much of the stylistic decision making was done with input from Rick Berman and other producers during the lifetimes of the various shows. Composers are pretty much guns for hire, and others such as Ron Jones and Jay Chattaway certainly made their mark on TNG in different ways. It’s a shame Ron Jones wasn’t kept on after TNG’s 4th year, as some of his work was remarkable.

still waiting to see if round 2 will get the plastic model kit contract for discovery

A random though regarding the badge designs. I know in TOS there had been instances where other badges were seen throughout the Federation, but I wonder if the thought behind the Discovery badge was to imply an overlap with TOS, since it is already confirmed as being based when Pike was in command of the Enterprise.

It looks like the larger “layer” of the badge is layering itself over the another.

I don’t know. Just a random thought.

This is a preboot, Prime canon out of the window!

Thats the most annoying thing- if your going to Destroy the Prime Universe cannon Continuity for a Reboot then use it to change things for the better but they still hold onto stupid things like the different badges for different ships- this was something Gene abandoned himself.

@rockoandsocko3 — I have wondered about that. I asked on another thread about the versions on display at various conventions, but got no answer as to whether that overlap served a purpose we might see demonstrated in the series ….

Most of this will end up being bargain bin buys lol 😂

And we see the real reason for the constant uniform changes ;)

“Moichandising! ‘Star Trek: Discovery’ de’ flame thrower! De’ kids’ll love it!”


The badges are beautiful, the props cool. I’m glad there is a book. although it couldnt explain those hidious Space Tracksuit uniforms. I dread seeing Science Fiction fans wearing them at conventions. Ugh Awful, I prey they fix them in the next series- let them be a casualty of the Klingon War Please!

We have yet to get a decent look at the USS Discovery herself. We need that “deep-dive” look that we’ve had with all the other ships ad infinitum.

I want that phaser, yes indeed. And probably the action figures, too.

And still no mention of the smaller badges? Guess I’ll have to get in touch with QMx since this wasn’t as comprehensive as it could’ve been,lol!

Now who is going to get the license for models – Mobius has the Film license (their USS Franklin is due out around Christmas.

Looking at that Discovery costume, it just hit me Starfleet doesn’t seem to believe in short sleeve shirts. They had so many uniforms throughout the franchise and with rare exceptions I don’t think any of the main uniforms had short sleeves.

I’ve seen the movie and shows of star trek. the 3D version of this is awesome. the books and comics are very nice to read. great work. keep posting.
