So now that it's all systems go, what will the next chapter hold?
Here's everything you need to know.
Star Trek: Discovery season 4 release date and filming: When will it air
In the season four announcement video, fans were told that cast and crew would be back at work on November 20 which, given Everything That's Happening Right Now, is a gift in and of itself.
As for when it'll be released, season three landed on CBS All Access in the states on October 15, before arriving on Netflix for international viewers the day after.
So best-case scenario would be a release in the latter half of 2021.
Star Trek: Discovery season 4 cast: Who's in it?
Both Martin-Green and Jones appeared in the season four announcement video, which is a pretty strong indicator that they'll be back as Michael Burnham and Saru.
As for the rest of the cast, that's a tricky one to predict given that season three episodes are airing weekly.

Star Trek: Discovery season 4 plot: What will happen?
This is firmly under wraps for now, and until season three is done and dusted, it's virtually impossible for us to theorise what lies around the next corner.
In the latest instalment, the Discovery crew have a hell of a task on their hands. They, along with some new faces, are trying to rebuild what's left of the galaxy after it was hit by a cataclysmic event known as 'The Burn', which destroyed the Federation.
