In streaming news today, ViacomCBS have just revealed that that CBS All Access will soon be rebranded as Paramount Plus. Look for that to happen in early 2021. No doubt this will be the new home of all things Star Trek in the years ahead. You can read more here at Variety.
Also on the streaming front, Disney+ has just dropped the first trailer for The Mandalorian: Season Two, which begins airing on the subscription service on 10/30. You can see it here...
