New ‘Star Trek’ series ‘Section 31’ to start filming when ‘Discovery’ season 3 wraps

There’s no worry of canon at this point. We’re not even anywhere close to where canon has been.

‘Star Trek’ Boss: Picard Leads “Radically Altered” Life in CBS All Access Series

The Picard series will be the first onscreen Trek story set in the aftermath of that event, which would have altered the balance of power in the galaxy.

CBS adds 24/7 news from CBSN to its standalone streaming service, CBS All Access

It makes sense that CBSN would be added to the network’s larger streaming service, given that its news coverage was already available via CBSNews.com, as well as the CBS News app for mobile and connected TV devices. After all, you shouldn’t have to switch between CBS’s apps just to watch CBSN’s news. – Sarah Perez, TechCrunch http://ift.tt/2uVqOqf
