We now have our first look at the upcoming Star Trek documentary coming to the History Channel, which was announced earlier this year.
First look at The Center Seat
The Center Seat: 55 Years of Star Trek is a brand new multi-episode documentary series, which will be narrated by Star Trek: The Next Generation’s Gates McFadden. It is being produced by the same team behind History’s 2016 50 Years of Star Trek documentary. The Nacelle Company, who also produced the popular Netflix docuseries The Movies That Made Us and The Toys That Made Us, just released a trailer for Trek docuseries.
Each episode of The Center Seat will focus on a different chapter in Star Trek history. According to a release from Nacelle Company the documentary will be wide-reaching, detailing “how it began, where it’s been, and how it’s boldly going where no television series has ever gone before!”
The Center Seat is directed by Brian Volk-Weiss (The Movies That Made Us, The Toys That Made Us). Ian Roumain serves as showrunner and executive producer, with Gates McFadden, Cisco Henson, Ben Frost and Mark Altman serving as executive producers for the series.
Originally set to be released this fall, we still don’t have a final release date for The Center Seat, but we hope to have more details on the docuseries soon.
