Looks like Discovery got delayed again. This time it's indefinite though.

I can confirm that this show is in active production and is currently being filmed. Some of the reasons why it's been delayed has to do with differing ideas from the producers and rewrites of scenes/set designs. They only finalized and finished building a few of main sets in December, so there's alot of work still to be done.

It is without doubt that the production of Discovery has been a long, interminable train wreck.  The show has faced setbacks at every turn, and has become a repeated embarrassment to CBS.  Their prized hunting Falcon has become an Albatross for the launching of their paid online streaming service.  (A service I subscribed to when Discovery was announced, in a gesture of support for their efforts.)  They have been forced to explain themselves time and again to stockholders.

It would be hard to identify a more flawed and problem-ridden Trek series launch.   I don't think that even Phase II encountered so many difficulties.

However, as I read about the perpetual stream of problems, I try to remind myself that in the myths and legends of many cultures, the Hero is often the product of a terrible, painful birth.

And so I hold out hope...

It does seem to be having its troubles getting off the ground, but, it's potentially because they are trying to get it right. Naive beyond words I know, but even a blind squirrel finds an acorn every once and awhile.
