Set your faces to stunned. Netflix has snapped up the rights to the new 'Star Trek' series in the UK. Every episode will hit the streaming service within 24 hours of its US screening on CBS.

As well as that, all 727 existing episodes of 'Star Trek' – 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 by the end of 2016.

The new 'Star Trek' is one of the most highly-awaited series of recent years. Filming starts in September, and it'll air on US network CBS in January 2017. It marks the first new 'Star Trek' series in over a decade, with a new ship, new characters, new missions, but the same old ideology and hopeful outlook on mankind and the future.

The film franchise has also been given a boost in recent years thanks to the JJ Abrams rebooting. The man behind 'Star Wars: Episode VII' has had a hand in three films in the franchise since 2009, including the recently released 'Star Trek Beyond'.

Netflix has snaffled the rights to show the new 'Star Trek' series in all of its territories around the world, except for the US and Canada.

"'Star Trek' is one of the most iconic shows in television history and we're thrilled to partner with CBS to bring the beloved series to Trekkies around the world," said Sean Carey, vice president of global television at Netflix. "The newest chapter of the story promises to continue the rich tradition of adventure and is sure to excite fans everywhere Netflix is available."
