'Star Trek: Discovery' Being Pushed for Emmy Awards Consideration

Television awards season is about to begin and CBS All Access is throwing Star Trek: Discovery’s hat into the ring.

CBS has sent out a screener set of Star Trek: Discovery’s first season to members of the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences to consider for the Emmy Awards ballot. The set includes all 15 episode of Star Trek: Discovery Season One, which is a bit unusual. Normally, only select episodes of a show are sent out for consideration.

At least one of the screener sets made its way to eBay. The set will likely be highly coveted since it's unclear if Star Trek: Discovery will ever see a retail release on home media. Currently it only available to stream on CBS All Access, Crave TV, or Netflix depending on the region.

The eBay listing provides photos of the packaging, revealing which categories CBS is hoping Star Trek: Discovery will be considered in. The Primetime Emmy categories include:

  • Outstanding Drama Series
  • Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama
    • Sonequa Martin-Green (Michael Burnham)
