Star Trek: Discovery season 3 episode 1 is upon us but what time does it come on? Here’s how to watch the season premiere in the US and UK.

Why do we watch science fiction?

To be entertained? To simply pass the time?

Arguably, the reason sci-fi remains such a popular genre is because it provides the expansive thrills of discovery.

Through the beloved genre, we have discovered so many awe-inducing and fascinating worlds.

However, the true beauty of sci-fi may stem from the fact that, despite taking us to bold new worlds, it is always able to comment on our own. Similarly, films and shows set in the future more often than not tell us something about the present, products of the time they were made.

Perhaps no better property captures this more eloquently than Star Trek.

Created by Gene Roddenberry and emerging in the 1960s, the property has taught fans so many valuable lessons, reinforcing important morals. Indeed, to this day it continues to light a spark within our vast imaginations.

Now, fans are invited to continue their exploration of this remarkable universe.

That’s right, Star Trek: Discovery season 3 is here and you won’t want to miss out…
