Aussies (along with 188 other countries) will get the new Star Trek television series within 24 hours of the U.S. release, thanks to a new international licensing deal with Netflix and CBS. But that's not all -- the deal also comes with every episode of Star Trek, ever.
All 727 existing episodes of the iconic Star Trek television library -- including Star Trek: The Original Series, Star Trek: The Next Generation, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Star Trek: Voyager and Star Trek: Enterprise will be available on Netflix around the world by the end of 2016.
The all-new Star Trek will begin production in Toronto in September for its January 2017 premiere. The iconic and influential global franchise will return to television for the first time since 2005 with a new ship, new characters and new missions, while embracing the same ideology and hope for the future that inspired a generation.
