Looks like no-one's clipping the USS Discovery's wings anytime soon. US TV network CBS has announced it's commissioned a second series of the highly-anticipated sci-fi reboot 'Star Trek: Discovery'.

Set a decade before 'The Original Series', 'Star Trek Discovery' features a disgraced Starfleet officer called Michael Burnham, who serves aboard the USS Discovery as it explores deep space. As you'd expect, war is raging between the Federation and Klingons.

According to CBS, the show has earned praise from viewers and critics alike, as well as added new subscribers to its CBS All Access streaming service.

There's no word on when the second series will air, or how many episodes it will comprise.

CBS split the 15-episode first series one into two chapters. The first six episodes have already aired – the remaining three will air one a week on 29th October, and 5th and 12th November. The second half of the series will premiere in January 2018.

'Star Trek' is one of the most successful sci-fi franchises of all time, with a string of landmark and critically-acclaimed series and films to its name. In the UK, 'Star Trek: Discovery' airs on Netflix.
