Background information

  • On 9 January 2020, Production Weekly included a fourth season in its listing of upcoming productions, although no official announcement had been made. [1] [2] [3] [4] [5]
  • It was only on 16 October 2020 that the fourth season was officially announced; production began on November 2 in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic crisis. [6] [7]
  • In a January 2021 interview with Michelle Paradise, she stated that Gray's storyline will be followed up in season 4 and "That storyline is incredibly important to us." [8] She expanded on that in a separate interview stating "Representation matters. It matters to see a version of yourself on screen. It matters there are non-binary and transgender characters. It matters that there is a Black woman in the captain's chair. It matters that there is a gay couple on our show. We will continue to do that for the show, and the world we live in, but also, to honor the Star Trek legacy. And to be super clear, we will pay that moment off in Season 4. Gray will be seen. That promise will be paid off." [9]
  • The entire production crew numbered nearly 80 crew and cast. [10]
  • In the penultimate week of April 2021, production was suspended for two weeks due to suspected on-set COVID-19 exposure. The projected June production wrap was not expected to suffer adversely from the temporary shutdown. [11]
  • Filming wrapped on 23 August 2021. [12]
  • The premiere date was announced as 18 November 2021.
