‘Star Trek: Discovery’ Emmy submissions: Will CBS All Access drama follow in Emmy winning footsteps of past ‘Trek’ series?

Will “Star Trek: Discovery” win Emmys this year? It would be a major breakthrough for CBS All Access, a new streaming service that earned its first nomination in 2017 when “The Good Fight” contended for its main title theme music. And it would be a major comeback for the “Star Trek” franchise: “Discovery” is the first “Trek” series since “Enterprise” ended in 2005. But the “Trek” shows have a strong track record with the television academy. Scroll down to find out what actors and episodes were submitted by the show across all Emmy categories save music composition (those races follow different procedures and don’t release public ballots).

The original “Star Trek” series ran from 1966-1969 and didn’t win any Emmys, but it was nominated 13 times, including twice for Best Drama Series (1967-1968). “Star Trek: The Next Generation” followed two decades later and aired for seven seasons from 1987 to 1994, during which time it won a whopping 19 Emmys, all in Creative Arts categories. “TNG” struggled in top races, however, and wasn’t nominated for Best Drama Series until 1994 for its final season.

That was the last time “Star Trek” was nominated in a top category presented during the Emmy telecast (writing, directing, acting or series). But “Deep Space Nine” did win four Emmys over the course of its run from 1993-1999, and “Voyager” won seven Emmys between 1995 and 2001. “Enterprise” was the last “Trek” series to air before “Discovery” debuted. It ran from 2001-2005 and won four Emmys of its own.

So judging from history “Discovery” has a good chance of winning at some point. And it’s groundbreaking, featuring the first black female lead in “Trek” history (Sonequa Martin-Green as First Officer Michael Burnham). But in the 12 years between “Enterprise” and “Discovery” television drastically changed. There are more shows on the air than ever before and more networks and streaming services airing them. And those shows are even more cinematic, with the high production values of “Game of Thrones,” “Westworld,” “The Crown,” “The Handmaid’s Tale” and more making those Creative Arts categories a lot more competitive.
