Star Trek: Discovery Season Three
The news was revealed via video of a Federation flag being planted by Commander Burnham, played by Sonequa Martin-Green, on a desolate planet. This is presumably far off in the future after the events that led to Burnham and the U.S.S. Discovery to travel inside a wormhole. Now in the future, they are finding much of what they once knew is no longer anything like they knew it… including the Federation. The crew now must band together and with some new friends to try and restore hope to the Federation.
