The first footage of the anticipated Star Trek: Discovery series is here!
CBS debuted the stunning first trailer from the ambitious CBS All Access sci-fi series during its Upfront presentation in New York City on Wednesday — and it will leave you speechless.
The new footage introduces Sonequa Martin-Green as USS Discovery First Officer Michael Burnham and Michelle Yeoh as Phillippa Georgiou, Captain of the Shenzou, a decade before Captain Kirk and the Starship Enterprise.
It opens with Georgiou telling Burnham, who has served under her for seven years, that it’s time for her to lead her own ship, before the two are transported to another world.
The action ramps up as their ship engages with their most formidable Star Trek foe: the Klingons. “I’m trying to save you,” Burnham insists to her crew during a dramatic moment in the trailer. “I’m trying to save all of you.”
CBS has also released brand new photos from the new series, revealing the expansive world in which Discovery will take place.
And the stellar new poster features a memorable tagline that teases the adventure that’s about to come: “At the edge of the universe, discovery begins.”
The first season of Star Trek: Discovery has been expanded to 15 episodes and will premiere this fall, first on CBS before debuting new installments on CBS All Access. A companion aftershow, Talking Trek, will stream on CBS All Access.
